PALMER - A Palmer resident who looks a lot like the Harry Potter character will be the hot-seat contestant on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' on Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27.
Ryan Dickerson, a movie theater manager at Cinemark in Lancaster, will have the chance to become a millionaire on the popular game show hosted by Meredith Vieira. Originally from Red Oak and the son of Sally Dickerson, Dickerson admitted he was at the end of his financial rope. He said he helped to support his mother from his job, drove a beat-up car, had holes in his shoes and his credit cards were maxed out. He could really use some 'Millionaire' money said Dickerson. He promised his mom a new lawn mower if he won big on 'Millionaire,' and would also like to get a new car and motorcycle according to a press release. Dickerson said he looked so much like Potter his co-workers at the movie theater call him Harry Potter.
'I am not even sure if my coworkers know my real name,' said Dickerson
'Millionaire' can be seen on WFAA channel 8, ABC, Monday through Friday at 3 p.m.
