Orangutans: The Intelligent Choice

WB Show to Offer Shot at $1B Prize

Details of the show are under discussion, executive producer Matti Leshem said Thursday. One proposal involves having a monkey put previously selected numbers in an order that must be matched for the $1 billion prize, he said.

"What could be more random than that?" Leshem said.

He's hoping to get a capuchin monkey to do the job. There was some controversy surrounding the idea, Leshem said, refusing to elaborate. There are also those promoting an orangutan as a better, more intelligent choice, he said. [link]
