Pound Ridge native racks up money and wins on 'Jeopardy!'Posted: Updated:
A Pound Ridge native is making headlines for his winning streak on 'Jeopardy!'
Austin Rogers, who grew up on the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, has won more than $306,000 so far.
The somewhat quirky 38-year-old bartender in NYC says he's been watching Jeopardy on TV since he was a kid.
"This is like my natural habitat knowing things and being a wise guy,” said Rogers. “The whole 'Jeopardy!' experience was pretty much sculpted and tailor-made for me."
Rogers will defend his title once again Friday night.
