Warning: This page may contain spoilers for the January 12, 2023 game of Celebrity Jeopardy!, especially for those of you in the Pacific time zone—please do not scroll down if you wish to avoid being spoiled.
Today’s Celebrity Jeopardy! contestants:
|Torrey DeVitto, an actor from Chicago Med and Pretty Little Liars, playing for Planned Parenthood
|Candace Parker, a 2-time WNBA champion and WNBA MVP and an NBA on TNT commentator, playing for the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation
|Patton Oswalt, an actor from The King of Queens and a comedian, playing for Alice’s Kids
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:
Last Thursday, Michael Cera booked his ticket to the semifinals. One of Torrey DeVitto, Candace Parker, and Patton Oswalt will join him tonight.
One important point: Negative thoughts regarding any of the contestants’ charities are 100% unwelcome here; they will be deleted and the commenter will find themselves permanently banned (as per the Site Comment Policy). One point in particular: You do not want to hear my thoughts as a Canadian about the state of American health care funding such that multiple celebrities in this competition have seen fit to play for Planned Parenthood.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they can, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.
