Eric Ahasic said he grew up in Illinois and spent his entire life there alone, applying for the Jeopardy every passing year. He was raised and spent his days watching the show and playing the trivia game at his grandmother’s house. During his school days, he once competed in the Quiz Bowl and gave his best for the Jeopardy in 2004, when Ken Jennings made his record-breaking winning streak of 74 consecutive games. For the past 15 years he appeared for the tests to participate in the show and although he sometimes passed the exams, he still could not pass the whole round of the quiz. In March 2021, Eric made his 15th attempt at making Jeopardy appear. He was selected for another round and was allowed to audition in July. He was later told that he could now appear on national television for the show. Eric said onstage that the making of Jeopardy involves everyone — the participants, coordinators, the cameraman, and the host — all of which help calm the environment or things down and help people have fun together.
