Dan Tran… what a story. This is just one of the many reasons why I love watching Jeopardy.
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Jeopardy- especially when it is middle school edition. Those kids never dominate the pop culture categories and I have it basically in the bag. Kevin shared with me this video the other day of a contestant answering a question about a villain from Batman named Bain, but actually took the extra step in impersonating his voice as well. It’s so awkward, but so good at the same time. These contestants are the best.
If you know me at all IRL, then you know that Teen Jeopardy is my absolute favorite! Why is that? Because every episode there’s always a pop culture category and who dominates that category? Me. Seriously, these kids were too busy looking at their textbooks that they couldn’t even read the gossip blogs or turn on the radio. That’s where I come in. Somebody has to, right?
Anyways, the above has nothing to do with this clip. The end of Teen Jeopardy week was last night, but Kevin was nice enough to share this video with me and it is truly an incredible finish. Please watch until the end for the ULTIMATE sass. The kid is a boss basically.
This happened. And it was awesome.
I dominated the entire “Hey, I Just Met You” category.

Just answered “Foster the People” correctly for the 2000pt Jeopardy question when none of the contenders could. I OWN THE POP CULTURE CATEGORY.
During tonight’s episode of Jeopardy, Seattle local Tom Nissley, became the third-highest winning contestant ever on the game show earning $235,405. Tom Nissley is a 43-year-old online books editor from the area who has won his 8th consistent game. Tomorrow, he will take on game nine and become a bit closer to beating out Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings ($2,520,700) and David Madden ($430,400) who are the only two people in the game’s history to have earned more than him thus far.
