Steven Silverman appeared on ‘Jeopardy’ with host Alex Trebek. The episode airs on June 7.

Birmingham Township's own Steven Silverman of Birmingham Township will be seen as a contestant on “Jeopardy” on Friday, June 7, at 7 p.m. on ABC.  The episode was taped in March, and Silverman is prohibited from saying whether he won, or who his opponents were.

On June 3, champion player James Holzhauer finally lost in his 33rd consecutive game.

Silverman graduated from Unionville High School in 2013, and then from Carnegie Mellon with a degree in math and computer science. His experience with competitive academic teams at both UHS and CMU helped him prepare for his appearance on the show. He is currently living in Virginia and working as a software engineer.
