Our very own Amy Swanson King recently competed on Jeopardy, and Searvi members will be glued to our screens when her episode airs. Join us! In the PNW, the show is aired on KOMO. (Check your local listings.)
For our international readers, Jeopardy is a game show (created by Merv Griffin and hosted by iCanadian-born Alex Trebec) in which 3 contestants match wits for 3 rounds. For the first 2 rounds, they must select a question from the board, and the one that pushes their buzzer the fastest may answer the question. If they answer correctly, they win the $$ attached to that question. (Much-parodied is the twist that each question is given in the form of an answer, and each response must be in the form of a question!)
In the last round, the contestants secretly answer a final question. They may wager as much money as they have accumulated throughout the show, and the person with the most money at the end of the final round wins. But of course, all go home winners, for having survived the selection process and the show. Amy, you rock!
(Who wants to bet she’ll sneak in a mention of Sápmi?)
