**UPDATE** One of our own on Jeopardy tonight!
**UPDATE** (from our web editor): HE WON! Thad made it through Final Jeopardy as a champion and competes again tonight, Monday, March 17. Tune in at 7 p.m. on WFTV-Channel 9 to see Thad banter with Alec and answer some questions with answers in the form of a question.
Thaddeus McCollum, copy editor for Orlando Weekly, will be on Jeopardy tonight at 7 p.m. (EST) on WFTV-Channel 9.
Tune in to watch him womp the competition with his vast knowledge of all things trivial and universally important.
To prepare for the veritable brain bowl of the nation, he said he studied every day for about a month before his appearance on the show.
“You get about 30 days from when they call you to when your taping is, so I spent several hours a day going through past games on j-archive.com,” he said.
He first had to pass an online test, then went to New Orleans – coincidentally on his birthday – for the second round. Luckily, he beat out all the other competition, becoming one of a small handful of Jeopardy contestants who live in Orlando, Fla.
Tune in tonight to find out what he had to say about Orlando, his wedding on doomsday (Dec. 21, 2012), and to see if he wins the game!
We’re all rooting for you, Thad!
