Answer: This Yalie will be on “Jeopardy!” next month. Question: Who is Sam Spaulding ’13?
Spaulding will represent Yale in the show’s “College Championship” Nov. 12.
For this veteran quizbowl player (he’s also on the Yale team), being on the show was more than “super fun.”
The show flew the sophomore to Los Angeles to tape the games in mid-October. And yes, he got to meet the one and only Alex Trebek and hear that crazy-catchy Final Jeopardy tune in person.
“Ever since I started watching the show [in high school], being on Jeopardy has been a dream of mine,” he said.
“Jeopardy!” airs at 7 p.m. on WTNH-TV in the New Haven area.
