He said he started preparing to come for Jeopardy about two years ago. After a series of online tests and interviews, he was able to take the stage on February 8, 2023 (Wednesday).
In his first match, he faced Matthew Marcus and Becky Molder. He was a major influence in Matthew Marcus’ victory, who initially had the four-day winning streak. With only $10,000, he differed from the personality of Matthew Marcus, who won four games. Now he will return to defend his win against the other two new champions or candidates – Scott Perry and Mira Hayward.
At the end of the day’s show, Ken Jennings blew his breath by saying that Matthew Marcus is likely to appear in the 2023 Tournament of Champions.
