UPDATED: MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee native Gilbert Collins returned to the Jeopardy! podium Wednesday night.

Collins was the returning champion and tried to clinch his 6th win. Collins lost but took home more than $85,000. There's a chance that the Rufus King High School graduate could be invited back for the Tournament of Champions.


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee native is dominating on Jeopardy! and one of his biggest fans is right here in Milwaukee, his sister.

Gilbert Collins won on Tuesday's show, making him a five-time champion.

He's a Rufus King graduate who now lives in New Jersey. His sister Jolie Collins says he was meant for success, he was named most successful after his senior year at Rufus King back in 1992.

"That face is still the same if you guys have seen the show, most likely to succeed, he still does that same face every time that camera's on him," said sister Jolie Collins.

There is a chance Collins could be invited back for the Tournament of Champions with his latest win.
