Atomic Cowboy Karl Allis wants to be a millionaire

Watch Karl Allis, restaurant manager at Atomic Cowboy and Fat Sully's and an occasional on-air personality at KKFN (his dream is to have a show called "The Hungus Amongus"), takes a shot at winning a million bucks on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, which airs at 9:30 a.m. today on KMGH/Channel 8.

Allis's three friends: his father, Edward Allis; Dave Plati (associate athletic director for the University of Colorado); and Joe Mills (a library shelver in Denver). But Allis seems well-prepared to win on his own: He started a trivia night five years ago at Atomic Cowboy called "Atomic Trivia," and has written thousands of questions. That game has just one rule: When you win, you have to do a victory lap around the bar.

Here's hoping Allis gets to do a victory lap around Millionaire host Meredith Viera today.
