These 9 People from the Rockford Area Once Appeared on Jeopardy!
Do you any of these Jeopardy! champs?
Rockford has more than Michelle Williams and Danica Patrick, we also have a bunch of Jeopardy! players, nine to be exact.
Until yesterday I had no idea that Jeopardy! kept a database of winners. Well, I guess I should have known that, but I didn't know you could search it for whatever, whenever you want.
So I wanted to know all of our previous contestants from the area.
Do any of these names ring a bell?
