ROSEMEAD (CNS) - The owner of a Rosemead-based food truck will be the “frontline hero” contestant on Sunday's “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” episode airing at 9 p.m. on ABC.
Tom Miller was forced to shut down Slammin Sliders because of the coronavius pandemic.
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 pandemic.
Each episode will include a frontline hero, including a firefighter nurse, sign language interpreter and therapist.
Kimmel's first season as host, which ran from April 8 to June 4 consisted only of celebrities playing for charities.
Actor-comedian Joel McHale will be Sunday's celebrity contestant playing for Groundswell, a Brooklyn-based social justice organization that brings together artists, youth and community organizations to use art as a tool for social change.
The episode can be viewed on demand and on Hulu beginning Monday.
