The Bismarck High graduate and native has been trying to appear on the game show for over 10 years, and in 2017, has finally received word that he made it on the popular national game show of knowledge, which coined the phrase, "the answer is".

Becker, who is a former newspaper carrier for the Bismarck Tribune, taped the show in August, and the show will be televised nationally on Monday.

Becker now lives in Tennessee and works as a research assistant at Vanderbilt University.

Even though the contestants time with host Alex Trebek is limited, Becker did say Trebek is a nice guy.
