DWTS Alek Skarlatos And Fellow Paris Train Attack Heroes Win $250,000 On “Millionaire”

Did you all get a chance to see Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone, and Anthony Sadler on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” this week for what we previously reported? If not…guess what? They WON $250,000! So awesome! Here is more via DisneyABC….

On the Tuesday, November 1st episode of the weekday syndicated game show WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, the trio of young American men who stopped an active shooter from killing hundreds on a train to Paris in August 2015 win a whopping quarter of a million dollars! Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler appeared as contestants during “Millionaire’s” Hometown Heroes Week, which spotlights men and women who go out of their way to make the world a better place.

Skarlatos, Stone and Sadler used teamwork and their close friendship to take on the 14 “Millionaire” questions that lead to the top prize and they work their way to the $250,000 question. After successfully answering it, and with no more lifelines left, they look at the $500,000 question but decide to walk away with their winnings, which they’ll split three ways.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.
