Game Show Contestants Lose $800K on Correct Answer?

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(NEW YORK) – A couple that lost $800,000 on the Fox game show Million Dollar Money Drop for answering a question incorrectly have been invited back by the network. Turns out they answered correctly!

Gabe Okoye and Brittany Mayti were asked which of three items -- Macintosh computers, the Sony Walkman, or Post-It notes -- were sold in stores first. The couple answered Post-It note, and were disappointed to hear that the Walkman was sold earlier. Later in the week, Fox confessed to having the wrong information, since Post-It notes were actually market tested a few years prior to the release of the Sony Walkman.

Okoye and Mayti have been invited back to the show.
