LOS ANGELES — A Millington family ended up walking away with a $20,000 prize in the season premiere of America's Funniest Home Videos Sunday night.
Kathryn Rodgers' family owes their win to a video of their puppy wreaking havoc while chasing balloons.
Kathryn Rodgers, the video owner and shooter, was on the show, along with her 8-year-old niece Naomi, Naomi's dog, Chompy, and another family member, Brandy Rodgers.
America's Funniest Home Videos, which has been on the air for 33 years, is now doubling the weekly prize money to $20,000, $6,000, and $4,000 for first, second and third places respectively.
Rodgers' family is now eligible to compete for $100,000 in January 2023.
