A young whiz kid cleaned up on a TV game show, and made for some high drama in the process. Sojas Wagle, 14, from Springdale, Ark., cashed in Tuesday, Nov. 15, on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”

Wagle’s appearance wrapped up on the second episode of Whiz Kids Week. After correctly answering the $250,000 question, Wagle took a hard look at the $500,000 question before opting out.

Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and TV Distribution noted in an announcement that Wagle is only the second solo contestant to make it all the way up to the half-million-dollar question so far this season.

Here’s a look at Wagle in action …
