This Week’s Contestants (December 19-23, 2016)

It’s a new week of Jeopardy!

Her friends and family will also appreciate donations on her behalf to the Cancer Research Institute.

    As a faithful Jeopardy follower i was totally shocked to see her photo with Alex Trebek and read in this morning’s Star about Cindy Stowell and her passing on Dec 5 !! What an incredibly gutsy intelligent and courageous young woman ! I am profoundly saddened but also strangely emboldened by the depth of her inner strength to rise to the top of this challenge she chose to embark on. I haven’t looked at the website before this and am happy that the producers sent her the tapes so she could watch them…. Kudos !
