The two prior posters are correct for the USA count - 11 millionaires from the standard show. I might add that in Super Millionaire, a two-time special event of ten times the stakes hosted by Regis Philbin, Robert Essig walked away with a prize of $1,000,000, however this was not the ultimate payoff as it is in the original Millionaire gameshow.|
Numbers in response to this question could be obfuscated by exceptions such as the above, or Charles Ingram as CountSolo brought up, whose earnings were snatched after he was found guilty of cheating. Several competitors have received rewards superior to $1,000,000.
The sum of all Millionaire winners, discluding questionable exceptions, I would declare as 79.
12 winners on the regular show, 1 from Super Millionaire|
