At the time of publication, he had won 12 straight games on the show that streams every Wednesday on the Crackle digital-only network. “I’ve always found sports facts easy to remember and usually was the go-to guy during pub trivia nights (including while at NJIT),” Varadarajan said.

Varadarajan completed his bachelor’s degree at NJIT in civil engineering where he was an Albert Dorman Honors College scholar and active with the NJ Beta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi. He then went on to attend graduate school at Purdue University and complete his master’s in transportation engineering last year. He is now employed as a transportation engineer in Washington, D.C.
