The answer: This "Jeopardy" champion is so dominant, his streak has reached double digits.

The question: Who is Pound Ridge native Austin Rogers.

Rogers, a graduate of Fox Lane High School, won his 11th game in a row on Tuesday night, and his winnings have reached almost $400,000. He goes for 12 in a row on Wednesday at 7 p.m. on WABC Channel 7.

Rogers, who grew up on the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, won Tuesday in dominating fashion. After round one, he led $6,000 to 3,400 to $800 and going into "Final Jeopardy!", he could not be caught, leading $26,300 to $11,200 to $2,200.

The "Final Jeopardy!" clue was: The protagonist of this novel “was fairly sure that his age was 39, and he believed that he had been born in 1944 or 1945."

Rogers correctly answered: what is 1984 and won $29,300 for an 11-day total of $394,700.

His winning streak has even caught the attention of late night TV host James Corden who said he is obsessed with Rogers.

"He's amazing," Corden said. "I'm floored by him. He simultaneously looks like a homeless man trying to dress up like a rich person and a rich person trying to dress up like a homeless man. He looks like a teddy bear at a job interview. He looks like a sommelier at a food truck."

Corden praised Rogers for having both "sass and brains."

"You know how hard it is to be smart and still pull that off?" Corden said.
