A couple who appeared on a short-lived Fox game show are suing the producers two years later, claiming that they were denied more than half a million dollars despite answering a crucial question correctly.
Andrew and Patricia Murray, who are both airline pilots, were contestants on Million Dollar Money Drop in December 2010.
They now claim the question which lost them the chance to win $580,000 was incorrect and was ultimately a ‘trick question’, according to TMZ.

Entertaining when they blow it.
Interesting if they recover.
Is there an insurance company behind the lawsuit?
Did they have a hand in the staging of questions that would keep the payoffs low?
