Amelia Hershberger, an Albany native, has beaten Alex Trebek in arm wrestling, won two games of Jeopardy, and will try to win a third tonight!
On Tuesday, Amelia netted $21,200 on the game show, which of course invites the winner back to play again the next day. Last night she won $15,800, bringing her total up to $37,000 so far. She’ll give it another try tonight against a human resource director from Morrisville, PA, and a government and law librarian from Richmond, VA.
(I usually try to avoid librarians when it comes to trivia, but Amelia doesn’t have a choice).
GOOD LUCK Amelia! Albany.com and the rest of the city are rooting for you!
Alex Trebek proves that you need to have strength of mind AND body if you’re going to host Jeopardy! Watch when a contestant challenges him to arm wrestle on today’s J.
