Bellingham resident Adam Engst took home $15,250 in winnings for his performance on the television game show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."
Engst started the Thursday, April 17, episode with $12,500 in winnings by answering a series of progressively more difficult questions. He had used all of his help options, called lifelines, to get to that point. He was able to answer two more questions before getting stuck and deciding to take the winnings he had received to that point.
If he had guessed incorrectly, he would have lost all the money.
The show, in its 12th season, runs on KONG TV.
