That’s how much Homer’s Justin Vossler won during his six-day stint on Jeopardy.
Vossler teaches history in Moravia.
He can finally discuss his adventure with students now that the shows have aired. They were recorded in April.
Vossler was outmaneuvered during wagering on Final Jeopardy, betting more than another contestant who went from third to first. (All contestants were wrong.)
The Final Jeopardy category was The Oscars: “This Brit is the only actor to get Oscar nominations for playing two real-life U.S. presidents, both for 1990s films.” The correct response was Anthony Hopkins.
Congratulations Justin Vossler!
