Dani Johnson's Secret Millionaire episode that aired on ABC last year was so popular that the channel broadcasted the program again on Saturday. The airing is a way to launch the new season of Secret Millionaire which will premiere tomorrow on ABC at 8pm ET.
Originally the Dani Johnson episode was watched by 12.6 million viewers, which surprised producers - and as a result numerous stories of how Johnson helped and changed people's lives emerged.

Some people have come out of debt, others have established successful businesses, and even some have become millionaires themselves.
ABC asked Johnson whether she knew anyone who could take part in the new series this year, and ABC News has reported that she offered a number of names without hesitation.
Dani Johnson herself was once homeless and on welfare. However, she turned her life around and became a wealthy entrepreneur. In the episode, which will be re-aired Saturday, she spends a week among the poor, in search of those who need her help most, ABC has reported.
The episode features Johnson giving away $100,000 of her own money to those changing and making a difference to the lives of those suffering and in hardship around them.
The season premiere of the new series of Secret Millionaire is on June 3.
