Hey everyone, wild few days there last month huh? A few weeks ago I got to achieve a 20 year dream and see myself on Jeopardy! I cannot even tell you how unreal that feels. And while I wish I could have given everybody a few more nights in the run (and made it to that sweet sweet Tournament of Champions) I’m *beyond* happy & grateful for how things played out. I’m a 3x Jeopardy! champion with an incredible experience that I’ll have for the rest of my life and which I’m extremely eager to start talking about onstage. (…and yeah $53K is pretty dope too).
More than anything I need to send out a MASSIVE THANKS to *everyone* who wished me luck, shared my story, organized a watch party, reached out to me with kind words, and offered their support and encouragement. I can’t even process the degree to which folks were out there for me night after night. People have told me how cool & collected I seemed on the show but they should see me reading all of the positive shoutouts and messages I’ve received, I haven’t been cool & collected then, I’ve been absolutely floored and overwhelmed. I’m still working on acknowledging & responding to everyone who’s gotten in touch but I just want to say that it’s meant more than you can ever know.
And lastly, while I may not be a 5-day “Super Champion” I do feel confident in my early bid for taking the crown in the Jeopardy! 2018 Jacket Game. #Fresh2Death
