Local contestant hopes to break Jeopardy! record
|Drew Horwood on Jeopardy!|
"I was lucky enough to land a question about Prince," he said in a recent post on the Star Tribune. "I doubt I'd have been let back into the state if I got that one wrong."
Horwood formerly worked as an intern for Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who has been tweeting her support each day.
"Congrats again 2 my fmr intern @DrewHorwood on his 6 day winning streak on @Jeopardy! Will b cheering u on tmrw. Thx 4 shout-out last night," she enthused earlier this week.
Should he win tonight's game, his next marker will be to beat Dave Madden's 19-game winning streak. After that, he might need to quit his job to break the next record: all-time champ (post-1980 reboot) Ken Jennings lasted a mind-boggling 74 days.
This evening's show starts at 4:30 p.m. on KARE-11.
