NKY lawyer buzzes in on Jeopardy show

COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) - A local man answered in the form of a question to Alex Trebek on Tuesday.

Kevin Moser, 29, is a Covington lawyer who lives in Newport.

Moser applied online to be a contestant on Jeopardy and actually made it onto the show.

"It's a lot of fun. It's also a lot more pressure when you're playing live for real money versus when you're sitting at home thinking you're so smart because you're beating the other contestants", he revealed.

A viewing party was held for him at the Keystone Bar & Grill in Covington on Tuesday evening.

Moser finished second on the show, walking away with $18,200.

In addition, another Tri-State native also appeared on Wheel of Fortune. Shannon Lewis is from Cincinnati, and now lives in Key West, Florida.

Her taping aired on Tuesday night, and she won $14,600 worth of cash and prizes.
