PEKIN, Ill. -- A local man is being featured on a popular game show tonight.

Michael Ritchason is a teacher in Pekin. Monday night, he is being featured on NBC's "Hollywood Game Night" show.

Ritchason was teamed up with celebrities Cheryl Hines, Andy Roddick and Rachel Bilson.

The episode was recorded seven weeks ago and Ritchason is still keeping quiet about if his team wins or loses.

"Before we signed our contracts or as we say signed our lives away we said is there one person that we can kind of share this with and they reluctantly agreed to let both Nicole the other contestant tell our spouses back home," he said.

If his team is the winner, Ritchason has been keeping a $25,000 secret.

The episode airs on Monday at 9 p.m. on WEEK.
