Ashley Hebert played The Bachelorette earlier this year, but on Wednesday she played Millionaire. And she played the TV game show for a very good reason: to give her winnings to Alzheimer's Association for the group's efforts on the best day of the year for this particular disease because September 21 is designated as World Alzheimer's Action Day.
This fairly new celebrity was a good player for this great cause. No doubt she made everyone proudÂ—particularly her fiancÃ© JP Rosenbaum and especially when she answered (correctly!) a question about construction while taking one quiz question that came up while she was under the gun. Apparently, this is one woman who can take a lot of pressure, even on live TV.
That said, in the end, Ashley Hebert took a whopping $15,800 away with her when she said goodbye to Millionaire and goodbye to host Meredith Vieria, with whom she shared a very heartfelt hug.
By way of background, Ashley Hebert was not the only celebrity to play Who Wants to be a Millionaire to benefit a cure for this devastating disease and to advocate for Alzheimer's awareness through the Alzheimer's Association. On episodes of this syndicated (and pre taped show) that started airing September 19 (and that will continue through to September 23), other household names who played the game for this the charity organization that helps to give funds to this public health treat known to be greatly underfunded were Carson Kressley, Vivica A. Fox, Anthony Anderson, and Susie Essman.
But tonight it was Ashley Hebert's turn as she made big bucks knowing plenty of trivia and sharing it. Yes, The Bachelorette played Millionaire for a good cause on Alzheimer's Action Day. Well done, pretty lady.
