DARIEN, Conn. — The second part of the final round of the "Jeopardy Teen Tournament" will be broadcast on Tuesday evening as Darien High senior Michael Borecki looks to make a comeback.
Borecki lost all his "earnings" in Final Jeopardy on Monday evening. But he returns for Part II of the final round, making a run for the $100,000 grand prize. Part II will be broadcast on Tuesday at 7 p.m. on WABC-TV and WTNH-TV in Connecticut.
Borecki was one of two Connecticut teens to compete in this year's tournament, which lasts for two weeks. The shows were taped earlier this year at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.
According to the Darien Times , Borecki was recently named a National Merit Semifinalist and last year won the National History Bee Connecticut State Championship JV level for the second year. As an eighth-grader, he won the state’s geography bee.
Porter Bowman, a junior at St. Luke’s School in New Canaan, was another of the 15 teen contestants who took part in earlier rounds of the quiz show competition but did not advance.
“The Teen Tournament is my favorite yearly event due to the energy and enthusiasm of our young contestants,” said "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek. “Taping this year’s shows in D.C. only added to that feeling of excitement and also created a sense of occasion that was felt by everyone who participated in it.”
