12-year-old Andrew Grace from Apex will be in the spotlight this week, during a special Kids Week edition of "Jeopardy!"
The rising 7th grader at St. Mary Magdalene School said he first got interested in being on "Jeopardy!" when he saw the television commercials last year for Kids Week auditions. After getting permission from his parents, Andrew took a 15-minute timed test online and did well enough to earn an invitation to try out with producers in person.
Andrew and his family, parents Mike and Nancy Grace and sister Abigail, went to Atlanta in November for the tryouts, where he took another timed test, participated in a mock "Jeopardy!" game and went through an interview designed to show a bit of his personality.
