'Million Dollar Money Drop' contestants Gabe Okoye & Brittany Mayti and host Kevin Pollak

*While the “million-dollar question” controversy is raging, Kevin Pollak offered that the contestants, Gabe Okoye and Brittany Mayti, never had a real chance.

“They never had a chance to win that money. Ever. No matter what,” the “Million Dollar Money Drop” host said. “They got the last question wrong. None of the clips show the last question.”

*While the “million-dollar question” controversy is raging, Kevin Pollak offered that the contestants, Gabe Okoye and Brittany Mayti, would not have gone home with the loot anyway.

“They never had a chance to win that money. Ever. No matter what,” the “Million Dollar Money Drop” host said. “They got the last question wrong. None of the clips show the last question.”

YouTube clips of the couple’s heartbreaking loss of $800,000 keep people reminded about the devastating mistake the game show made, deeming the couple’s answer incorrect when it was actually the right answer.

But Pollak points out that even if the couple had been awarded the cash for that question, they still would have met the same demise on the show.

“This story is a moot point. They lost everything on the next question. It’s a non-story,” says Pollak. “There’s one aspect of the story that hasn’t been covered that much.”

The couple has been reinvited to the show and the host is quite pleased with the gesture.

“I say right on,” the chippy host says of the do-over episode. “But now they are saying there’s too much pressure? Oh my God! Way to get the country to turn against you. That’s interesting, they would make such a stink and then ultimately maybe not come back,” he says.
