A Fort Thomas teen will be competing on Jeopardy! Wednesday night as part of the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament.

Eileen Bunch, a sophomore at Villa Madonna Academy, is competing to win the grand prize of $75,000.

Bunch has been on her school's academic teams since fourth grade and she won the spelling bee four years in a row when she attended Saint Thomas School.

Bunch auditioned for the show in New York in November after she was one of 300 applicants selected. She found out in February that she would appear on the show.

Bunch told FOX19 that if she wins the money, it would probably go toward paying for college expenses.

Make sure to watch the episode tonight on FOX19 at 7:30.
