The three heroes from the Paris train attack made a stop in Las Vegas over the summer — and took home $250,000.
The trio taped an appearance on the "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" game show in June, and their episodes aired Monday and Tuesday.
Air Force Staff Sgt. Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guard Spc. Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler kicked off the show's "Hometown Heroes Week" on Monday. The friends gained international attention in 2015 when they stopped a suspected terrorist on a Paris-bound train.
Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler made it to the $500,000 question with all of their lifelines used up. The idea of half a million dollars was tempting, but they decided to walk away with $250,000 in winnings.
"I wanted to go for the [$500,000]," Stone told Military Times on Wednesday. "I get too excited when I'm in that environment. Thank God Alek talked some sense into me."
Stone said he had a great experience being on the show with his friends.
"It made it a lot easier to be up there," he said. "It was three minds working together, and they gave us an extra lifeline."
