Tonight, the mystery millionaire will be at Upright Citizens Brigade to give Rowin a check for $1 million with no strings attached. Rowin promises it will be quite a party, with music, comedy, and a free rafflebecause he can totally afford to give away fun prizes now. But will there really be a check for $1 million or is this just a genius publicity stunt? One things for certainif it is true, well never again make fun of people who read The Secret.
