Local makes ‘Jeopardy’ appearance
Who is Kate Hawthorne Jeracki?
Answer: A few wrong responses left Kate in the hole early on. Wagering $1,000 on the Daily Double, and getting it correct, left her down just $600 going into Double Jeopardy.
What happened in the first round?
Answer: Clicker malfunction.
How did she not get the question about the state flower of Colorado?
Answer: Thanks, in part, to Contestant Three missing the Daily Double, Contestant One hitting a cold-streak, and Kate’s frightening knowledge of words that start with “u,” our local favorite headed into Final Jeopardy in second place with $11,400.
What is an amazing comeback?
Answer: Very entertaining because she even managed to correct the show’s host on properly phrasing responses on “Jeopardy.”
How was her chit-chat with Alex Trebek?
“1960s TV Characters” was the Final Jeopardy category. Kate and Contestant Three answered right to end the day with $21,400 (she only wagered $10,000) and $22,000, respectively. Contestant One answered incorrectly and finished with $19,199.
Final Jeopardy question: One of her first spoken lines is translated, ‘You have the face of a wise and fearless caliph.’
