NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A college student from New Hanover County will be on the show Jeopardy soon.
Bill Driskoll is a senior at Stanford University, and the Carolina Beach native is competing on the show's college championship later this month.
He went through several rounds to make the final cut.
To prepare for the show, Driskoll practices with a buzzer at home and answers questions in the form of a question.
When it comes down to Final jeopardy, Driskoll is going all in.
"The kick yourself factor would be much higher if you didn't bet high on yourself, knew the answer, and then didn't make it because you didn't bet enough, so I think you have to bet on yourself to win,” he said.
The winner of the College Challenge takes home $100,000.
Driskoll says if he wins, he'll buy a house and a new TV for his mom.
