He auditioned for both the preliminary and national competition. Andy Riehl has been waiting for his chance for nearly two years.

When Andy recieved the call to be a contestant, he decided to take part in the once in a lifetime experience of being on the show. This was a dream come true just being a contestant on the show.

Andy said, ”I told my wife, 'If I come home with a couple thousand dollars, it's just the experience is worth it. I mean just to have the fun, but to actually win that kind of money was totally unexpected.”

On the show in the second round Andy had two options when he picked up the mystery card either go bankrupt or win $10,000. Well he won the $10,000, and walked away with a total of $27,750 and plans to use that money to treat him and his wife to a couple vacations.
