Despite being the first contestant eliminated on a game show Thursday, Tulsa meteorologist George Flickinger earned $1,000 for the Humane Society of Tulsa.
Flickinger, a meteorologist at KJRH channel 2, appeared on the Thursday broadcast of "Let's Ask America," a syndicated show that features contestants who take part in the game via Skype.
Thursday's show was a special episode featuring four TV meteorologists - from Tulsa, Phoenix, Cleveland and Kansas City - competing to win money for local charities. Flickinger unsuccessfully answered three questions.
"Let's Ask America" airs 2:30 p.m. weekdays on KJRH, Channel 2
