Bluffton native looks to compete for big bucks

A former Bluffton resident is all set to once again audition for his chance to play on Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Former Bluffton resident and Rimbey graduate is all set to once again audition for his chance to play on this fall’s series of Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Dennis Harrish was invited by the Disney ABC television network to audition for competition.

Harrish has entered the competition four times before with no avail. “I’m very excited, hope I get in this time.”

“It is tremendous competition and it’s fun,” he added.

The audition process for the show starts hopefuls off with a quiz and only those who answer enough questions correctly move onto the screen tests.

Auditionees who pass the screen test are then invited to compete in a live taping of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, in front of an audience.

Harrish will have the opportunity to audition for two tapings this summer in New York, NY: July 30 and 31.

Harrish grew up southwest of Bluffton and attended the Bluffton School before transitioning to Rimbey. He graduated as valedictorian of the class of 1969.

He began his career in the oil field before moving to the United States to design and manage executive compensation and investment plans for a series of Fortune 500 companies; allowing him to consult in England, Switzerland and most recently, across the Middle East.

Harrish provides consultation services to public companies in the area of executive plan design and related filings to the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. He is also the founder and chief in- vestment officer of the ZillionZTM Fund, a pri- vate U.S. investment fund based in suburban Atlanta, Georgia.
