Could this be Australia's greatest quiz show stuff-up?

WHEN there is a million dollars on the line, contestants on Millionaire Hot Seat can crumble as the pressure falls on their shoulders.

But does that really explain how a mother and daughter team flubbed their second question on national television?

West Australian mum-daughter team Christina and Tanya were booted from the hot seat on their second question -- the easiest part of the show.

The first question was to pick the word that meant the same thing as "pig-headed". 

It was C) Stubborn.  

Good work team.

But the second question was a real doozy... apparently.

Playing for $200, they were asked which of these was NOT a type of dinosaur.

a) Brachiosaurus

b) Stegosaurus

c) Tyrannosaurus

d) Thesaurus

The pair panicked, leaned towards D -- a book that lists synonyms and is not a long-extinct creature  -- but couldn't make a decision before their time ran out.
