Margaret Shelton is a homemaker from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She joined the show Jeopardy on March 1, 2022 and is still expanding her appearance on the show to tell everyone a story. With her unique dress style and quirkiness, she managed to catch the attention of Jeopardy fans and they are enjoying their stay on the show very much. As per the social media posts, so many viewers want her to keep winning and work her way up to the Tournament of the Champions round.
Judging by her looks, we can safely assume that Margaret Shelton is in her early 50s. She developed her Southern accent growing up in Drew, Mississippi but now resides in Pittsburgh and is the daughter of Vernon Shelton. If we take a look at her education, she went to North Sunflower Academy, Mississippi and earned Delta Gamma, Phi Beta Kappa honors and finished her degree at Sally McDonald Barksdale Honors College. Professionally she is a housewife and no past can be found about her. Shelton became the winner on day one in fierce competition with others.
She earned the amount of $13,600 and earned a total of $16,600 while giving 21 correct and 4 wrong answers. On the second day, it rose to $41,000 including 26 right and wrong answers. She later played with Ryan Pressman and Louis Dellaperuta on day 3 and won the sum of $17,200 in a single day by getting 15 correct answers and 2 wrong answers. She’s continued her journey throughout the week anyway, and she’s also on the show for day four. With her four consecutive hits, she is still on the show on Friday, March 4, 2022, winning a total series of $79,000.
Margaret Shelton Jeopardy
On the fourth day, she single-handedly earned the amount of $21,500, and despite wrong answers, she led the day with such an amount. On the set of Friday’s show, she lapped up the public with her outstanding balance of $24,000. The only question she gave an incorrect answer to was a character in a book by Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky to which neither she nor her competitors gave the right answer. So she had the chance to erase the “story” with her marks and correct answers.
She showed her impressive performance while beating out some serious contenders, including Adrian Alcalá (a software developer from Great Barrington, Massachusetts) and Caitlin McHale (a college marketing manager from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). On Day Four, March 4, 2022, Shelton revealed her anxiety and admitted it feels a little scary behind the contestant’s podium. She said playing Jeopardy is like getting married a show, you want to do it but you’re scared inside. Upon testimony, host Jenning was quick to respond that “it’s something short-lived.”
