Berkeley High graduate competes on Jeopardy! game show

Matt Olson, a Berkeley native, competes on Jeopardy! this week.

A former Berkeley High School student is set to appear Tuesday on Jeopardy! College Championship.

Matt Olson, a 20-year-old sophomore at Stanford University, beat out 12,000 other students to compete on the show after multiple failed attempts in past years, Berkeleyside reported.

In a promotional video for the show, Olson claimed studying for finals was more difficult than preparing for the show.
