Win or lose, Henegar said he’s “having the time of his life” and “living out his childhood dream once more.”

“After being on Jeopardy! last year, I went into the TOC thinking of it as a bonus, and I’m just enjoying the moment and playing as hard as I can,” Henegar said.

He once again likened the TOC to playing on an All-Star team with the MVPs.

“I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity and to be playing with contestants of this caliber; it’s an amazing and humbling experience,” Henegar said.

He said he’s still finding it hard to believe that it’s all happened to him.

“If you had told me that I could’ve done something like this when I was a little kid, I would’ve thought you were crazy!” Henegar said.

Tune in on WBIR Channel 10 TV at 7:30pm to catch Henegar’s next competition as he takes on his “new friends” Luigi de Guzman and Troy Meyer. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/11/2024-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF BRIAN HENEGAR)
