Every Time Jeopardy! Asked a Question About the Tri-States
I'm not a big Jeopardy! fan, it's a love/hate relationship, but in doing some research I found a few clues that have been asked on the trivia show. Let's test your skills.
The category is U.S Tourism and the clue...You can reach this town's convention & visitors bureau by calling 1-TOMANDHUCK...do you know the answer? If you answered, what is Hannibal, Missouri you are correct. The Tri-States' has been featured on Jeopardy! a few times, but Hannibal more than Quincy (no surprise). Hannibal has a lot more pop culture, history, and famous people from the area.
When I do watch the game show, and it's not often, I don't feel that smart at all. Except if there are categories related to music, pop culture, some history, or entertainment than I'm golden. I would never be able to make it on that show unless they had a team's version. However, there have been a few local constantans that have made it on the show in the past.
- Lucas Bergman from Quincy was a 1998 College Championship Quarterfinalist: $2,500 - he appeared on show #3165 which aired on May 8, 1998.
- Omar Mahmood was on season 14 show #3082 which aired on January 13, 1998 he lost all of his earnings on Final Jeopardy!
- Jason Washington from Quincy was on season 31 show #6913 which aired on October 08, 2014 and won $200.
- Bob Winthrop from Hannibal was a part of the 1988 Senior Tournament Quarterfinalist show #863 which aired on May 5, 1988 and he earned $1.000.
There have also been clues about the states (Illinois & Missouri) on the show. Stacker.com put together a list of clues from each state, let's see how good you are.
