Fans of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” got a chance to see Kimberly Oberhaus, an administrative assistant at the Toledo Museum of Art, from Walbridge, on today’s show (May 8).
Kimberly made it all the way up to her $250,000 question. She unfortunately provided an incorrect answer, however, and bypassed the option of not answering the question. If she had walked away from the game, she could have taken home her entire Millionaire Bank, which had risen to $53,600.
She was still able to leave the show with $25,000 in winnings.
Because Kimberly made it into the second round of the game (questions 11-14), “Millionaire” donated $10,000 to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
All week long (May 6-10), “Millionaire” will be raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, donating $10,000 to the organization each time a contestant makes it into the second round of the game (questions 11-14), also known as Classic Millionaire.
The week-long initiative will culminate with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, who will play “Millionaire” as a two-person team on Friday, May 10 and donate all of their winnings to CMN Hospitals.
The daughter of the late Donald and Joan Oberhaus, Kimberly is a 1980 graduate of Lake High School. Her brother Gary accompanied her to New York City for the taping, and sat in the “Millionaire” audience as her on-air companion for the show.
"Millionaire," hosted by Meredith Vieira, can be seen locally in the Toledo area on 13abc (WTVG) weekdays at 12:30 p.m.
