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.

Alek Skalatos’ Friend And Fellow Train Hero Spencer Stone Stabbed

If it’s not one thing, it’s something else. 🙁 This is so sad. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with Alek Skalatos’ friend and fellow train hero Spencer Stone. He was stabbed last night and is in critical condition. Here is more from NBC. Feeling so bad for Alek as well. 🙁 Keep your thoughts and prayers with him too.

ETA: Note that the article also says he is in stable condition now.

French train attack hero Spencer Stone was in a stable condition after being stabbed in Sacramento on Wednesday night, the Air Force confirmed to NBC News.

CBS News first reported that Airman First Class Stone, one of three Americans who helped thwart a terror attack on a French train in August, had been “repeatedly stabbed.”

The Air Force said the incident occurred around midnight.

“He is alive and in stable condition at this time,” the Air Force said in a statement. “We do not have any information as to the events preceding the incident.”
