Get your buzzers ready: a Queens man is going to be on “Jeopardy!” next week.

Robert D’Emilio, a writer from Ridgewood, will be competing on an upcoming episode of the long-running, popular quiz show “Jeopardy!”

The episode is set to air on Tuesday, July 4, at 7 p.m. on WABC-TV.

Queens has a history of having its residents compete on “Jeopardy!” Late last year, Chelsea Cohen, a production editor from Astoria, competed on the show and placed second, winning $2,000. Another woman from Astoria competed on “Jeopardy!” in 2014 and went on to win $16,800. Last year, a woman from Rego Park competed in the semifinals of the “Jeopardy!” Teachers Tournament.

“Jeopardy!”, hosted by Alex Trebek, is on its 33rd season of syndication. In its 30+ years on the air, “Jeopardy!” has won several awards and distinctions, including the Guinness World Records record for the most Emmy Awards won by a TV game show, with a total of 33 Emmy Awards.
