North Attleboro native John Avila has retained his title as "Jeopardy" champion.
Avila, 30, a Bishop Feehan High School graduate, came out on top again in his second appearance on the popular game show Tuesday night.
Avila, a Washington, D.C. attorney who now lives in Arlington, Va., easily defeated Pete Tachibana, a California bartender, and Andrea Keppers, a Denver history teacher who came in second and put up a fairly good challenge.
Avila, who answered many questions correctly and had a large lead, wound up with slightly more than $20,000 despite losing $400 on the final question, which had to do with the Shakespeare play "Othello."
"Another win tonight. Way to go John Avila 05," the Bishop Feehan Twitter Page proclaimed in a tweet minutes after the telecast.
Avila graduated from Bishop Feehan in 2005.
In his debut on the show Monday, Avila staged an impressive comeback after finding himself in third place. He took home $14,001, answering the final question correctly.
Tune in Wednesday night at 7:30 on channels 4 in Boston and 12 in Providence to see if Avila continues his reign.
