Restaurant manager 'Millionaire' contestant
Chad Donah, 30, a restaurant manager from Glendale, will be a contestant Monday on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." Hosted by the Emmy Award-winning Meredith Vieira, 'Millionaire' can be seen locally in the Los Angeles area on KTLA5 weekdays at 10 a.m. with a repeat episode from a previous season of "Millionaire" airing at 10:30 a.m.
Donah is originally from Burbank, and is a 1999 graduate of Burbank High School. He works as the assistant manager of Marie Callender's in Glendale. He brought his girlfriend, Reese, with him to New York City. She sat in the studio audience as his on-air companion for the show.
Chad said that if he won big on "Millionaire," he would start a food truck. He would like to sell gourmet sub sandwiches and specialty French fries to hungry club-goers outside of L.A.'s hottest night spots. He'd also like to buy a bottle of Louis XIII Cognac, which costs $1,500 a bottle.
