Lexington teenager competing in 'Jeopardy!' Teen Tournament

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A Lexington teenager is competing for the title of "Jeopardy!" Teen Tournament champion.

Sixteen-year-old Erin Christopher is a rising junior at Tates Creek High School. She's competing with other teenagers around the country for a $75,000 prize.

The tournament filmed in Los Angeles earlier this year.

"It was exciting and nerve-racking at the same time, because I was terrified," Christopher said. "But it was a really great bunch of kids, which soothed my nerves a little bit, but not much."

You can watch Erin on "Jeopardy!" Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. on WKYT.
