Atkins 2 NOVEMBER 7, 2018 – Rohan Kapileshwari, a senior at Atkins High School, is a recent convert to “Jeopardy!” He started watching the popular game show when he heard about a chance to audition for it earlier this year. But he has quickly taken to the television show.

“I try not to miss any episodes,” said Kapileshwari, 17. “I’m actually a pretty new fan, but they do have a fan for life.”

He is competing in the “Jeopardy!” Teen Tournament, which begins airing today and runs through Nov. 20. Fifteen students, ages 14 to 17, will compete over two weeks with the goal of winning the $100,000 grand prize.

Kapileshwari will compete in the quarterfinals that will air Tuesday, Nov. 13, on WFMY-Channel 2 (CBS).
