To say Christian Dixie got a jump start on college would be an understatement.

He won more than $65,000, which he plans to use to pay for college.

The contest aired in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak, and a Yahoo.com news article called Christian “precisely what the world needs now.”

“I love it here at Ball State,” he said. “I’ve already done so much as a freshman alone.”
