INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.--- North Webster’s Luann Kissinger didn't become a "Hoosier Millionaire" at the show's grand finale at the Indiana State Fair yesterday, but she didn't walk away empty-handed either.
She returns home with $11,000, which she plans to save a third of, spend a third and give away a third.
The grand-finale winner was Rick Rhodes of Kokomo, but Kissinger said she had the time of her life and enjoyed every moment of her experience.
The iconic show debuted in 1989, and created an exciting opportunity for people to win a $1 million.
Absent from the air for some time, it returned in celebration of its 25th anniversary.
Kissinger represented the Elkhart region, and lives with her husband and 20-year-old son.
She said having the chance to be on "Hoosier Millionaire" was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
