Gay Rights Advocate Andrew Kravis Wins $2.6 Million on 'Million Second Quiz': VIDEO


Those of you watching NBC's Million Second Quiz last night saw Andrew Kravis win an astonishing $2.6 million on the game show. What you may not have known is that Kravis is an LGBT rights advocate and Columbia Law School grad who is about to start working at the nation's largest LGBT legal organization:

Andrew_kravisAnd no, he doesn’t work at a hedge fund or private equity firm. He doesn’t even work in Biglaw. He’s a public interest lawyer, about to start a fellowship at Lambda Legal, the nation’s oldest and largest legal organization working for LGBT civil rights. He was honored upon graduating from CLS as one of two students “who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in the furtherance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights.”

No word if Kravis is gay. We congratulate him on his winnings.

  2. Congrats to Andrew.
    Ironically his prize is presented to him by a closeted gay man.

  4. He's def gay. When Ryan Seacrest kissed him, he started acting flustered and waving himself.

  7. Just saw Andrew on CNBC where they mentioned he was going to work for a law firm, but did not say which. Suspect that was deliberate for their audience.

  8. The real question is about Ryan, although he's starting to lose his looks.

  11. Fantastic! and I have a strong feeling he'll donate some to an LGBT cause and LGBT rights.

  12. Congrats! usually I couldn't care who wins these game show contests, but he seems like a wonderful guy. Good for him.

  13. What do heterosexuals do when they win money? Give it to heterosexual groups?

  14. I'm glad he won. As for the show, the noise level is so annoying and distracting it's almost impossible to watch.

  15. He's probably gay. It looked like his boyfriend was on stage at the end to hug him.

    I wish I could have seen this live but I wasn't interested in the show and did read anything about gay contestants.

  16. This "we are the world" approach to homosexuality is getting tired.

  18. Was the audio not working for you? Every word he uttered was "word" that he's gay.

    Good for him, tho. How long would we have to be gay married for me to be entitled to half his net worth?

  19. Y'all just keep your hands off my next husbear.

  20. @TONYC It is a facade.

  21. I'm not sure if being flustered and fanning oneself is a sign. I'm queer, and if Ryan Seacrest were to do that to me without first asking, I'd SLAP him. Having said this, Mr. Kravis is awfully pretty. I don't see it for Mr. Seacrest, but I generally don't understand the beauty myth as to who's attractive (my idea of attractive is Seth Rogen pre-weight loss, or Zach Galifianakis).
