Jason Washington Is Not A Millionaire Either

First it was John Kuczaj.

Now it is Jason Washington.

Can't anyone from Chicago play this game?

From Millionaire HQ:

"Jason Washington, an admissions advisor at Colorado Technical University (online) from Downers Grove, IL was a contestant on Wednesday's episode of 'Double Your Money Week' on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

"After the questions and money in Jason's first round were all shuffled, host Meredith Vieira revealed to him that his 'Double Money' question would be his fifth question. Once Jason made it to his fifth question, he ended up not knowing the answer and used his 'Jump The Question' lifeline. Jason ultimately made it to the sixth question, but unfortunately provided an incorrect answer, which meant that he walked away with $1,000 in winnings."
