Jeopardy! Contestant from Chanhassen

Jeopardy!Meredith Johnson, a student at the U originally from Chanhassen, will be competing in the Jeopardy! College Championship. The competition will tape at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in early April.

What I didn’t know was that everyone that makes it to the College Championship takes home a little money. So Meredith is guaranteed at least $5,000 even if she goes out in the first round.

Man, I used to watch Jeopardy! on the daily. These days I’m usually not home or else I’m busy when it’s on. I’m not inclined to just veg in front of the tv for no real reason, either. Jeopardy! is not one of those shows you can just have on in the background. You have to pay attention.

Does anyone else that does not qualify for AARP membership still watch it?

    You’re damn right I do…Meredith is my sister!

    Ok, I don’t. I think it’s on before I come home from work. And frankly, the mustache-less Alex kinda creeps me out. :)

    I was thinking whenever Alex becomes unable to host the show, they need to just end it. I’m sure there’s something else having to do with money that would encourage Sony to keep it up, but look at The Price is Right with Drew Carey. It’s just not the same, ya know?

    My wife and I TiVo Jeopardy! and watch it every night. That’s no lie.

    I hope Meredith has packed a shiny new University of Mn sweatshirt! Also, check out this photo of Trebek!.

    Oh, Greg, you ain’t right.

    "What is Chanhassen?"

    Btw, we seriously do watch it every night. There was someone from Minnetonka on last week or the week before. We tend to fast forward through introductions and small talk.
