A Hawthorne man lived out one of his dreams by competing on "Jeopardy!"
Pasquale Palumbo made his "Jeopardy!" debut Thursday night.
He was set to be on the show last year with late "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek, but his appearance was delayed because of the pandemic.
While he never got to meet Trebek, Palumbo sure did make Westchester County proud by winning a total of $6,799, which means he gets to live out his dream all over again on Friday night.
All three of the contestants got the final question wrong, which was to name two of the three national capitals in South America whose metro areas have more than 10 million people.
