posted by Alie Davila -

This. Is. So. Cool. Barry White Jr., a Charlotte-Mecklenburg teacher at Ashley Park Elementary, won $50,000 on Kevin Hart's new show 'TKO' that aired Wednesday night. White Jr. faced a variety of challenges in an obstacle course as other contestants tried to slow him down or knock him off the course. He clocked in the fastest time to take home the cash.

White originally went viral from a video showing creative handshakes with each of his students as they entered the classroom.

Congratulations, Barry!

Last nights premiere of the show @tkocbs reminded me of how great Gods love is. Having the opportunity to be a contestant on the show was an experience that I’ll always cherish. Understanding that I wouldn’t be the man that I am today without my Heavenly Father , family , friends , and supporters , it would be a dishonor to myself to not acknowledge my precious jewels; my students. They’ve taught me so much along my journey of teaching and they deserve to be recognized for being one of my biggest motivations. Major thank you to everyone who tuned in, shared, reposted, commented, called, texted and cheered me on. I wouldn’t be on this platform without your #support and #uplifting spirit! You guys are the #REAL champions. I will never forget or overlook that. I’m pumped and ready to see what God has in store for me and for YOU. @kevinhart4real Ps: If you put a Nupe on TV. He will Shimmy 😂👌🏾♦️🐰 #RelationshipsAreKey #Kevinhart #TKO #Forthepeople #Bythepeople #Barrywhitejr #CBS #ChildrensChampion #Love #blackbojoy #Blackmensmiling #HBCU #Nupes #Shimmy #Humbleandgrateful #GodisGood #Cashout #Culture #Totalknockout
