Julie Bowen aka television's coolest mom Claire Dunphy on 'Modern Family', which concluded earlier this year after an 11-year run, was on the hot seat opposite Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday evening's episode of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'. She was playing for Baby2Baby, a charity that distributes gently used pre-owned baby products to help less privileged babies living in poverty. By the end of the episode, Bowen was still going very strong in the game. She had just won $125,000 and was raring to go for the 12th question that was for $250,000 but the timer went off and it was time for the show, Kimmel, Julie, and the audiences to retire and look forward to next Sunday's episode.

Audiences who watched Bowen play are as hyped about her as she was during the game. She did a cool dance while on the hot seat after correctly answering a number of questions and that is something the audiences would surely tune in to watch next week. The final question that she answered on Sunday night was: 'Which of these teen movies from the '80s has three actors in the cast who went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actor?' Her options were 'The Breakfast Club', 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High', 'Say Anything', 'Dead Poets Society'. The in-depth discussion she had about the film with the host Kimmel was very impressive and her knowledge about films from the past shone brightly. She had the right answer all along but she still chose to use 'Ask the Host' to fully confirm that her answer 'Fast Times' was right and she would not lose money. Kimmel too confirmed it was Option B and upon locking it as the final answer, Bowen won $125,000. "@itsJulieBowen I got to say you killed it on #whowantstobeamillionaire tonight! You and @jimmykimmel did a great job figuring out that question before the buzzard! Looking forward to seeing if you win it next week's episode!" wrote a fan. 



 

Next week she plays for the final three questions in the show and fans already think that if her Sunday night performance on the show is anything to go by, she's about to become the first celebrity to win a million dollars. "Mark my words. Bowen has a LEGIT shot at being a millionaire. #whowantstobeamillionaire" wrote a fan. "Is @itsJulieBowen going to win this whole thing? Watching she and @jimmykimmel working out the #FastTimes question was fabulous! #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire #Cliffhanger," wrote another. "OH MY GOSH. Bowen could actually win this. #whowantstobeamillionaire" read another tweet. "Julie Bowen sounds firm tonight. Also, she's doing amazing with the questions! #WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire" wrote another fan.
