He will return to the show on Friday night to compete in his ninth game and defend his title.
In an interview with Global’s “The Morning Show” last week, he said he applied for the show online during the epidemic because he was “annoyed” and wanted to let it go.
“The worst thing that can happen is I can’t hear back, and the best thing is maybe I’ve come to the show, so there’s literally no bad side to taking the test. Then I got the best possible results, “he said.
That best possible outcome – so far – has allowed him to repay his student loan.
After winning his fifth game, the 23-year-old has also secured a place in the next tournament of the Champions.
