“Lost” Makes Hundredaires!
Sure- 2 people are going to split 355 Million Dollars from Tuesday night’s MegaMillions lotto drawing, but check out how many people become “hundredaires” because of TV!
Four of the six numbers drawn in the estimated $380 million Mega Millions lottery matched the numbers immortalized by the Lost character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes, who hit a $114 million jackpot off them — only to be haunted by the same numbers in later episodes.
Tuesday’s Mega Millions numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42 (42 was the Mega Ball number).
Hurley’s numbers were 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
Unnerved watchers of the hit television show must have been left wondering whether the Dharma Initiative had a hand in the drawing.
Some 41,000 people won $150 with Hurley’s numbers!
I wonder if anyone played Roseanne’s numbers?
