Meet the Michigan guy who’s gonna be on Jeopardy this week
Grand Rapids resident Brennan Summers has been trying to get on Jeopardy for the last eight years. It's finally going to happen this Thursday (Dec. 14th). After hanging out and playing trivia at the Last Chance Tavern in Grand Rapids every Thursday, Brennan's going to be the star of the bar this week. According to MLive.com, in 2012, he made it to the in-person audition phase, but it wasn't until the audition this July that he got picked to go on the show, which they filmed in August.
He can't reveal how he did on the show, only to say that, "It was probably one of the coolest things I've ever done."
I'd say "good luck", but I'm about four months too late for that.
