Little Rock radiologist Shane Whitlock, who won the 1996 Jeopardy! college championship, has won a return appearance on the show thanks to the votes of fans. He'll compete against 45 other former Jeopardy champions who have won big since 1984. The winner will claim $1 million.

Whitlock was chosen by fans over four other Jeopardy winners from the 1990s. He will compete in the tournament’s "90s Week," which will air in Little Rock on KATV Channel 7 from March 3 through 7, 2014. In addition to his win in the 1996 college championship, Whitlock was a semifinalist in the 2005 Ultimate Tournament of Champions, winning $55,000.
