VIDEO: Whiz Kid Wins $100,000 on WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE
On the February 16th episode of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," Whiz Kid contestant Josh Darrow, 12, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, finished his game play and wins $100,000! Josh looked at the $250,000 question, but he didn't know the answer. So with no lifelines left, he decided that he did not want to risk his winnings with a guess and decided to walk away with $100,000.
When host Chris Harrison asked him what this experience has meant, Josh replied, "It's amazing. I'd first like to thank all of my teachers; they really supported me when I figured out I was going to be on the show. One particular teacher, my Science teacher, Mrs. Campbell, actually helped me a lot. Thank you for your support."
He then went on to say, "And then secondly, I'd like to put out a message to all the kids that are watching the show right now. You know, a lot of kids think it's not terribly cool be the nerd and study hard; but really, it got me pretty far, I think! I mean, right? Studying, it really paid off!"
