Penn State Professor Competes on Jeopardy! Tonight
Tune in to watch Andrea Mikulski on "America's favorite quiz show."
A Penn State professor will put her knowledge to the test tonight, as she competes on Jeopardy!
Ariana Mikulski, an associate professor of Spanish, taped the episode in February, after qualifying through an online test and in-person audition.
Andrea Mikulski, who teaches Spanish at Penn State, competes tonight on Jeopardy!
She says the in-studio experience in Culver City, CA was a whirlwind of excitement.
"Everything happened so fast that it seemed like a blur," Mikulski told The Daily Collegian . "It was interesting to see all of the behind-the-scenes aspects of the show, like the podiums that make the contestants the same height or seeing Alex [Trebek] re-record the audio of a clue because he stumbles over a word."
Mikulski will have tough competition, going up against 3-day returning champion James Holzhauer. Holzhuaer, a professional sports gambler from Las Vegas, NV, comes into tonight's game with an impressive $133,451 in winnings.
Tune in to Jeopardy! at 7 p.m. (check your local listings) to cheer Mikulski on!
