Watch ‘Jeopardy!’ tomorrow to see a player from West Seattle

With Alex Trebek in the photo above is one of your neighbors – Laura Schulman! Her friend Jen shares the news that Laura will be on “Jeopardy!” tomorrow night (Thursday, May 23, 7:30 pm, channel 4). Though Laura lives in West Seattle, she works in Kitsap County, where the Kitsap Sun interviewed her before her trip to LA for the show back in March. She told the Sun she’s been a lifelong trivia devotee, including pub trivia here in WS.

    Ah – but did you know that there are at least 3 other West Seattle folks that have been on Jeopardy? And they are all related. And one of them keeps telling me I should try out for it( nope).

        Laura! I’m so pumped to hear this! What an amazing accomplishment just to make it on the show! There will be a unicorn/narwhal watching closely tomorrow and cheering you on!

        I love King James but I will be rooting for you tonight Laura!

    Wishing Laura the best of luck! Unless someone else does it tonight, it would be Awesome to have a West Seattleite unseat which, with another win tonight, would be the 25(?) game champ!—Mike

    Thank you WSB! I’m so excited for it to finally air! And special shoutout to Shadowland and their former weekly trivia night where I trained for many years😉

    Thanks, WSB. I decided to just go from memory instead of looking it up to confirm, out of fear of some spoiler popping up in the search results, not knowing if/where tonight’s episode may have already aired. —Mike.

    And a piece of trivia – the great James Holzhauer let me know at our taping that he has a West Seattle connection. He and his wife bought their engagement rings at Menashe’s Jewelers!

    I watched it last night. Great job, Laura, and thanks for representing WS! That was the closest game yet that I’ve seen since James began his streak. He was actually behind most of the game which is really saying something considering how his games have been going so far.

Sorry, comment time is over.
