Two conflicting trivia items cannot be true

Below are two conflicting trivia items that both cannot be true, but I'm certain one is. I tried to delete the one I believe is incorrect based upon having found one on another site.
Wikipedia has to be questioned because it just refers back to imdb, and in its page history there has been other titles for Israel.
So my submission was rejected with unable to verify. Now the cynic in me would submit the other for deletion except that I'm shooting for accuracy. So does anyone else have some suggestions. (BTW, there is no alt title in the alt title section which I also found interesting.) And take a look at the wikipedia history page link.

Maybe they are just two different translations from Hebrew?

I agree one of the items should be removed as a duplicate, and it should probably be the last one with only five user votes. If the title in the first item is questionable, that item can be corrected or expanded upon.

Actually, they could both be true and based on different interpretation of what I assume is a Hebrew title.

I think I may have found something that gives some support.

At the bottom it has: "When I was young, my favorite television show was The Six Million Dollar Man, which, in Israel, was called The Man Worth Millions. I was just learning English when the show came on ..."

So I think this gives some good support. I suppose the other possibly could be true if there was a title change, but the fact there is no alternate title for Israel would make me doubt that since that would mean two different titles no one thought to post.

Hi MikeTheWhistle -

If you believe you have a valid source confirming the title is "The Man Worth Millions", and not  "The Millions Dollar Man", please submit a deletion of the duplicate, incorrect trivia item and (please include the link from above within your submission in the Explanation field) and our editors will take another look.

Michelle,
I've submitted the one with fewer votes for deletion as I can find no support for it while I've found 2 links supporting the older one.
But my submission was declined and I followed up twice with the contact us without success.  I think whoever is looking at it is missing that there are two conflicting items and think I'm just trying to remove a lone entry without considering them both.
Could you please take a look?

Hmmm, so your entire premisse is false. Kind of click-baitish.
