An Ann Arbor resident is picking up the buzzer and hoping to become a champ on 'Jeopardy.' Mark Bernstein will appear on the iconic quiz show tonight. (3/17)

Who is Mark Bernstein?

Bernstein is a retired solution architect and is a U of M graduate, earning a Masters in Business Administration in 1996, according to his TV Regular profile.

He's also worked with the Sam Bernstein law firm, the Michigan Civil Rights Commission, Citigroup, and has served as the director of press pool operations during President Bill Clinton's administration.

Bernstein says he's finally getting an opportunity to fulfill a dream he's had for a very long time.

"I had a fantastic time living a dream I've had for literally decades. Beyond that, I can't tell you anything - no spoilers."

Bernstein announced his appearance on his Facebook page earlier this month, sharing a picture of himself with host Ken Jennings.

Stiff Competition

Bernstein will compete against Kelly Barry from Seattle and Longmont, Colorado's Stephen Webb, who has proven to be a 'Jeopardy' heavy-hitter, racking up $184,881 during his impressive eight-day run.

Pre-Empted by Basketball

Bernstein is scheduled to appear on the game show tonight, Friday, March 17. But if you're in the Flint/Saginaw area, you may be disappointed to learn that the show will be pre-empted, as WNEM-TV (Channel 5) is airing the NCAA men's basketball tournament. The show will also be pre-empted in West Michigan on WWMT-TV (Channel 3), and in Northern Michigan on WBKB-TV (Channel 11).

'Jeopardy' is, however, slated to air in its regular time slot on Detroit's WDIV-TV (Channel 4), Lansing's WILX-TV (Channel 10), WPBN-TV (Channel 7) in Traverse City, and WLUC-TV (Channel) 6 in Marquette.
