UTAH COUNTY -- A Utah Valley woman took the hot seat on the TV show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" Wednesday.

Shannon Young got picked for the show after she took a written test and interviewed with producers in New York City last summer.

Wednesday's nail biter came down to the $25,000 question. Host Meredith Vierra asked Young what the offspring of a female donkey and male horse is called.

Young said, "You know what, Meredith? I've never been on a farm and I have no idea what this answer is. So I think I'm going to take my $16,000 and be very happy."

Even though Young didn't take home the million dollars, she's still $16,000 richer.

By the way, the answer to the question is a "hinny."
