Jeopardy Encore Presentation Recap – August 23, 2016

The nine contestants who advance out of this week’s quarterfinals will be competing in the semifinals and finals at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC!

This episode originally aired on May 3, 2016.

Nicole gave an on-air shoutout to Maggie Speak, one of the show’s producers, during this match! From my experiences hosting #JeopardyLivePanel, one constant is that every single person who has been on Jeopardy thinks that Maggie is awesome.

Today’s contestants:

Nicole Throckmorton, an 11th grade English and creative writing teacher from Williamsburg, VA

    As a fairly recent Jeopardy contestant, I can also attest that:
    1. I thought the shout out to Maggie was great! and
    2. Everyone who’s been on the show and spent hours with her, loves the woman (and her mother, too – inside joke!)
    3. The other contestant coordinators – Aimee and Corina- are super folks as well.
