Chelsea resident and Chelsea High graduate Tracy Syverain was announced this week as a contestant on the popular ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ game show – with her appearance coming today, March 14th.
The show with Syverain will appear on WCVB Boston (ABC) at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14th.
While the details couldn’t be revealed prior to the show about whether or not Syverain actually became a millionaire, the 33-year-old Cottage Street resident shared that if she did become a millionaire on the show, she would give it mostly to her mother.
“My mom is the love of my life,” she said. “She was a single mom, raising my siblings and I, while working two jobs seven days a week. Yet, she was always home in time to help us with our homework. After 30 years of working non-stop, I want to thank my mom by giving her most of my winnings.”
Syverain is a 1997 graduate of CHS and still resides in Chelsea, after having attained a degree in political science from UMass-Amherst.
She said she is well known around Chelsea for riding her hot pink motor scooter – which she has named ‘Cherry Darling’ – whenever she has to run errands in the neighborhood. Additionally, the scooter also brought her true love, as her boyfriend worked at the dealership where she bought the scooter.
In addition, if she happens to strike it rich on TV today, she said she would pay off her student loans and go to law school.
