With a correct answer, Reaves will walk away with $1 million. If her answer is incorrect, she will take home $25,000.

“It’s really exciting to have a contestant make it all the way up to the $1 million question!”, said new host Cedric. “It’s especially heart-pounding because it’s my first time asking the $1 million question,” he added. “Josina is a smart player throughout the game and it’s going to be a real nail-biter for everyone watching at home. I’m consistently impressed by the courage of the contestants to jump in and simply go for it! It keeps the game unpredictable and fun everyday — I’m truly having a great time hosting Millionaire!”
