Dover Native Competing in Jeopardy! College Championship Monday Night

Posted:

NEWARK, Del. (WBOC) - The annual Jeopardy! College Championship starts airing Monday night. And Sarah Stevens, a University of Delaware student from Dover, is competing in it.

The winner of the college tournament takes home $100,000. Stevens is one of 15 students trying to get their hands on that money.

She is a sophomore at UD and a history major.

"I've been watching Jeopardy! since I was a little kid. Playing at home I was always fairly good at it," she said.

Stevens says her mom urged her to take the qualifying test, which eventually led to her becoming a contestant. She went to Los Angeles to shoot the tournament over winter break.

"Being on the show itself was kind of bizarre - to see something I was so used to seeing at home, in my living room. Total dream come true. But I wasn't expecting for all the contestants to become so close. It was instant best friends. That was the most surprising thing."

As for how she did on the show itself -

"I can't say. If you want to find out, you have to watch."

Jeopardy! airs on FOX 21 at 7:30 PM.
