Binghamton grad wins on Jeopardy


By Kathleen Rubino '13

Alex Trebek and Sergio Llorian '94Sergio Llorian '94 loves to travel and take chances in life. He found himself in an interesting situation when he got the call from the game show Jeopardy! while vacationing in Hawaii.

"I remember checking my phone before I jumped out of the plane to go skydiving," Llorian says. "When I landed, I had a voicemail saying I had passed and was moving on."

Not only did he earn a spot on the show, he won in his first episode, walking away with $30,201.

Llorian had to complete two tests before advancing to live simulations of the game show. He passed each obstacle and made it onto the small screen. He was excited to be on Jeopardy!, but admits he didn't do much prep work before he competed.

"I realized after the show that I could have taken more tests and practiced with the buzzer," Llorian says. "I just went in with the knowledge in my head and that seemed to work out well."

His love for trivia started at a young age and continued into his college years. He recalls spending free nights with his friends at Uncle Tony's trivia night.

"It was the place to be," Llorian says. "You'd get some drinks and hang out with your buddies while answering questions and competing against teams."

During his time as a college student, he was a member of the fraternity Pi Lambda Phi. Llorian studied rhetoric and management with a concentration in finance, and says he gained a lot of basic knowledge. He's production director and general counsel at Ubiqus Reporting, Inc.

He recalls Godspell as his favorite of the four plays he took part in as a student, remembering the great reviews the show received from Pipe Dream. That experience sparked his interest in Broadway, which, he says, contributed to his success with the Broadway questions on Jeopardy!

"To have competed on Jeopardy! is a dream come true," Llorian said. "Win or lose, it's all about having fun."
