9,078 People Win Mega Millions Playing “Lost” Lottery Numbers

Last night, 9,078 won money in the Mega Millions drawing playing the sequence of numbers Hurley used in Lost to win the lottery.

In case you need a reminder, the Lost numbers were 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42. The Mega Millions winning combination was 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, 42.

Though only four of the Mega Millions numbers were the same as those Hurley used to win a life-changing sum on Lost, the numbers were enough for each of the Lost fans to win $150.

To find out more, or to check out a compilation video of the Lost numbers, head over to Celebuzz.

Ted Williams: Man with the Golden Voice

This man holds a sign at the off-ramp of I-71 and Hudson Road in Columbus, Ohio. He has a “God-given” golden voice, and he just wants to find a job in radio or doing voiceovers. His video has gone viral, and due to the overwhelming support he’s received, he has been invited to participate in the Dave & Jimmy show on WNCI this morning at 7:15.

I wish Ted all the best, and I hope to hear him on the Columbus airwaves soon!
