WASHINGTON: An Indian-American teenage boy has won $100,000 in a top U.S. quiz show. 



Sharath Narayan, a sophomore from Madison, Alabama, won 'Jeopardy! Teen tournament', the most coveted quiz show of the country by defeating two other finalists Alex Fischthal and Michael Borecki, who came second and third, respectively.



Hosted by long-time host Alex Trebek, "Jeopardy!" attracts 23 million viewers each week and is in its 33rd season. 



Sharath won the game by the slimmest of margins: one dollar, a media release said. 



"I'd still like to go on a trip to Europe with my family (maybe Italy or Germany!), but the majority of it will probably go towards taxes and college tuition," he said after winning the award. 



"I'm definitely more confident now since I won the tournament, and it showed me that I'm able to surprise myself and accomplish things that I never would have thought possible," he said. 



The finals was taped earlier this year, but was broadcast Monday and Tuesday.
