What Is Jeopardy?

On what television show will 2008 Gordon graduate Anna Tschetter be featured?

What is Jeopardy?
Anna Tschetter has a lot to be excited about. Mostly because tonight she’ll be tested on topics such as history, literature, the arts, pop culture, science, and sports on the popular quiz show Jeopardy.

"It’s amazing how much more difficult it is to play a game show when you’re actually on the stage in front of TV cameras, a studio audience and the hair and makeup people quietly discussing whether or not you have lipstick on your teeth. Sitting on the couch in your pajamas just doesn’t compare to the experience, said Anna. “After an online trivia test, an interview in Boston with more trivia questions, and seven months of thinking I was utterly forgettable and no one would call me to be on the show, I found myself in California with a dozen other self-proclaimed nerds excited to be on the show.”

The show is hosted by Alex Trebec, who in addition to celebrating 25 years on the air, is also committed to reporting on the efforts of World Vision. Jeopardy, with its unique answer-question format and 12 million daily viewers, airs tonight on CBS at 7:30 p.m. To view Anna’s contestant video-clip for the show, click HERE.
Good Luck Anna!

Anna Tschetter double-majored in English and music and graduated from Gordon College in 2008. She is employed at a law firm north of Boston.
