U.S. curler Chris Plys will be treating his parents to a trip to the Vancouver Olympics, thanks to some cash he earned on a new reality show.

Plys received $6,500 to fund his parents' trip to Canada from Duluth, Minn. An alternate on the men's curling team for the 2010 Games starting in February, Plys took part in "Bank of Hollywood" on the E! network and was featured in Monday's episode.

His father, Patrick, has recently overcome brain cancer.
