Charlotte Man Competes In 'Jeopardy!' Tournament

Up for a little quiz? We’ll play Jeopardy-style…

This Charlotte man won the 1991 Jeopardy! Teen Tournament, and he’s heading back to Hollywood to compete for a million dollars in the quiz show’s Battle of the Decades. He earned his spot among the tournament’s 45 contestants by winning an online fan vote.

The correct response: Who is Andrew Westney?

He’s now a reporter with Sports Business Daily. He took this past week off to study for the show, but he spared a few minutes to talk to WFAE's Duncan McFadyen before he left.

Here's the video Andrew created to ask for votes to be a "fan favorite" in the tournament.
