The answer: After 12 wins in a row on "Jeopardy!", Pound Ridge native Austin Rogers will be appearing on this talk show Thursday night.

The question: What is "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

Rogers, who won his 12th game in a row Wednesday and will be going for his 13th win in a row on Thursday at 7 p.m. on WABC Channel 7 before he sits down to chat with Fallon which will air at 11:34 p.m. on WNBC Channel 4. Rogers, a Fox Lane graduate, has won more than $400,000.

On Wednesday, Rogers again dominated the competition. He entered "Final Jeopardy!" with more than double his competition where the clue was: A Latin word for a sea creature, in photography, it’s a color that conveys nostalgia.

Rogers correctly answered sepia and won $16,300 for a 12-day total of $411,000.

The "Jeopardy!" champion, who grew up on the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, has become a national sensation for his outfits, antics, and hatred of the band, Eagles.
