Rockland resident on ‘Millionaire’ on Monday

Jenn Vogel, an English teacher at Ramapo High School, is going to be a contestant on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” on Monday.tjndc5-5mjkyazcmcp1jbd7xbgc_original.jpg

(I didn’t even know the show was still on.)

Vogel, a Suffern High School graduate, shared with the Journal News her experience on the show, which she taped in September.

“The second you sit in the chair, everything you know goes out of your head,” she said. “It’s one thing when you are sitting at home in your kitchen when you’re not losing anything, and another when you are trying to think (on the hot seat). It’s a lot harder to get your concentration. There’s the pressure, the music and flashing lights and there’s a special way you have to sit in the chair so you don’t fall over.”

Pretty interesting way to describe it. See how she does, Monday at 12:30 p.m. on ABC.
