A firefighter who lives in Valencia will complete his time in the “hot seat” on Sunday evening’s episode of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” airing at 9 p.m. on ABC.
Oliver Fry correctly answered six questions on last Sunday’s season premiere, reaching the $4,000 level before time expired.
In its second season with Jimmy Kimmel as host, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” has added what it bills as “frontline heroes” as contestants, fulfilling a desire by producers to give back to those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Each episode will include a frontline hero. Future participants include a nurse, food truck owner and therapist.
Kimmel’s first season as host, which ran from April 8 to June 4, consisted only of celebrities playing for charities.
“Modern Family” alumna Julie Bowen will be Sunday’s celebrity contestant, playing on behalf of Baby2Baby, which provides children up to 12 years old living in poverty with diapers, clothing and all other basic necessities. Bowen is a member of the nonprofit organization’s board of directors.
The season’s other celebrity contestants include actor-comedians Ray Romano and Cedric the Entertainer and chef David Chang.
The season includes a contestant winning $1 million, which did not occur last season. Because studio audiences were again not permitted because of the pandemic, the “Ask the Host” lifeline will again replace the “Ask the Audience” lifeline, just like last season.
The episode can be viewed on demand and on Hulu beginning Monday.
