The Case Western Reserve University sophomore is a game show veteran who appeared on Jeopardy! Teen Tournament two years ago—walking away with $5,000—and was a $25,000 winner on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire this spring.

Scheeler says he spent a month preparing for his appearance on Millionaire, blaring its familiar tension-building theme song while brushing up on trivia in between homework assignments.

The Sandusky, Ohio, native is studying accounting, economics and history at Case Western Reserve as he waits for the next big game show to come along. After all, it's always good to have a backup plan.
