Who is Thomas Pusateri?
Pusateri, a Hillsborough teacher for four years, calls himself a "trivia nerd" and records the show daily so he can play along later. When he heard the producers were looking for contestants here locally, he jumped at the chance.
Before long, Pusateri found himself in L.A. buzzing in.
"Getting on Jeopardy! has been a lifelong dream and I am very proud of the accomplishment," the teacher, who also has tried out for a spot on Survivor (remember Jan Gentry?), said in a district news release.
The show airs on July 10 (that's next week). Watch to see if he won.
