A Fort Collins man appeared on Jeopardy last night, and he won.  James Kevin Shrum won big Tuesday night, so he will be on again tonight as the returning champion. The episode airs on Fox.

Shrum is a retired professor from Regis University, where he taught business leadership courses. He retired from the Air Force in 1994.

Here is what James had to say about his Jeopardy experience on his Facebook page:

After a two-year selection process, I was invited to be a contestant on Jeopardy. I took the online test in October 2014, and attended an in-person audition in March 2015. On November 7, 2016, I got "THE CALL." Kay, Doug, Allison, and I traveled to L.A. for a taping on December 7, 2016. The episode will air on Tuesday, March 21. I can't say anything about the results of the show, except to say that I will be in a red shirt and finish in the top three!
