Sarah Hreyo is already a winner —she took home the Miss Westchester crown in 2012.
Now the Yonkers native, 22, has her sights set on another prize: a $1 million check from “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’
Hreyo, a reproductive genetics study supervisor, competed on the popular game show in the episode airing Thursday, September 19. The Sarah Lawrence grad hoped to win enough money to pay off her student loans and give back to her mother, a retired police officer, and her father, a factory worker.
Hreyo’s parents sat in audience while she tried to answer a series of pop culture and general knowledge questions while having some fun with comedian Cedric the Entertainer, who recently replaced Irvington’s Meredith Vieira as host of “Millionaire.” She even taught the game show host how to do a pageant wave.
How much money did Hreyo takes home? Find out when the episode airs Thursday at 12:30 p.m. on ABC.
