A North Dakota native went on to win his second day of Jeopardy Tuesday evening.

Kyle Becker, a research scientist at Vanderbilt University, graduated from Bismarck High School in 2005.

Show host Alex Trebek said Becker won "most likely to be on Jeopardy!" in high school.

Becker said he was not the first from BHS to be on the show, Liz Hutchens was on a couple of years ago.

Becker went up against Matthias Clark, a financial software consultant from River Forest, Ill., and Kimberly Kist, a retired teacher from Williamsport, Penn.

While all three players got the final Jeopardy! question wrong, Becker gambled the least amount of money and won Tuesday's game.

Becker's family plan on cheering him on again at Stadium Sports Bar Wednesday.
