In the best case scenario, you’ll get to visit the homes of some former Jeopardy! champions as they come to Los Angeles, and talk about the rare feat they achieved. For the best case scenario, you can snag yourself some early season wins from Hollywood stars.
Those are the objectives of British actress and award-winning author Mayim Bialik and Television Academy® (Television Academy®) Hall of Fame™ inductee Ken Jennings when they take the stage at Paramount Studios on 6 June, and speak in front of an audience of 2,500 about their new book, “Real Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Unlikely Superstars, the Greatest All-Star Team in National TV History”.
They’ll also be discussing some of their favourite Jeopardy! moments and the experience of being on the show during the momentous Celebrity Tournament that aired in May and culminated in a 13-day, game-chasing win-streak that catapulted the grand prize to over $2.5 million.
Also featured in the event are former Jeopardy! Players Aaron Gold, Jamie Baxter, Linda Ortega, Peter MacPhail, Rick Hammon, and Estee Staub and Celebrity Jeopardy! Champion Wendi McLendon-Covey.
