Armando Bacot has certainly made the most of his college career.

The UNC basketball star has done plenty of cool things through the NIL (Name, Image & Likeness), as he's earned various sponsorship deals along the way.

On Thursday, the popular game show 'Jeopardy' had a category dedicated to 'Name, Image & Likeness,' as the $1,000 question focused on one of Bacot's coolest ventures.

"I'll take 'Name, Image & Likeness' for $1,000 please."

The question focused on Bacot's brief appearance on the popular Netflix show Outer Banks. Although his television debut was a short one due to his very busy schedule, Bacot was still able to appear on a show that he's stated is one of his favorites.

If you're wondering, the contestant who picked the category and guessed the question answered it correctly!

As his collegiate career is set to finish in a couple of weeks, Armando Bacot can truly say he's made the most out of his time in Chapel Hill. Not only did he put together a tremendous career on the court, but he also took advantage of the opportunities to profit off his brand.

Being a brand ambassador for the likes of Dunkin Donuts, Crocs, Raising Cane's is cool in itself, but now, Armando Bacot can say that he was the focal point of a Jeopardy trivia question.
