CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – College students from across the country are competing this week on Jeopardy.
Thursday night, a lot of eyes from the Wilmington area will be watching one contestant in particular – Bill Driscoll of Carolina Beach.
The college senior from our area says when he found out he was going to be a contestant, he almost injured himself.
"I actually started jumping up and down and fell down the stairs when I found out I was going to be on Jeopardy," said Driscoll.
The Stanford college student said he's been practicing for this day with his fiercest competitor – his mom.
"Watching Jeopardy in my house is pretty competitive," said Driscoll.
The college contestants come from universities across the country, and are typically students who ace their exams.
