A local man answered in the form of a question to Alex Trebek on Tuesday.
Kevin Moser, 29, is a Covington lawyer who lives in Newport.
Moser applied online to be a contestant on Jeopardy and actually made it onto the show.
"It's a lot of fun. It's also a lot more pressure when you're playing live for real money versus when you're sitting at home thinking you're so smart because you're beating the other contestants", he revealed.
A viewing party was held for him at the Keystone Bar & Grill in Covington on Tuesday evening.
Moser finished second on the show, walking away with $18,200.
In addition, another Tri-State native also appeared on Wheel of Fortune. Shannon Lewis is from Cincinnati, and now lives in Key West, Florida.
Her taping aired on Tuesday night, and she won $14,600 worth of cash and prizes.
