MN Woman Caused a Stir on Jeopardy! Now It’s Happening Again
Last summer a woman from Minnesota made an appearance as a contestant on Jeopardy! Anji Nyquist is a social media coordinator from Minneapolis. She caused a stir the first time she was on the show when she revealed the name of her cat.
Her cat's name is Naz Reid, yes - as in the Timberwolves player.
When Anji was on the show this past summer she had a huge comeback win. On the July 5th episode. She had $4,800 but another player, Aubrey, had over $10,000. So when it came to the Final Jeopardy question, Anji bet nearly all of it. She bet $4,000. Aubrey bet $2,601. Anji's answer was correct which moved her to $8,800. Aubrey was incorrect. That made Anji the winner by $201. Now she's back!
I can finally spill the tea about why I was actually in LA! Your girl was lucky enough to be invited back for a play-in game and a chance at a spot in the @Jeopardy Second Chance tournament! No spoilers tho! My game airs tomorrow on the TuneIn app at 8 p.m. ET!
These Wild Card Play-In games feature 9 players vying for one of three spots in Champions Wildcard. That Champions Wildcard will decide who gets to play in the Tournament of Champions. These play-in games are the first official Jeopardy! episodes to be presented exclusively in audio format on Tune-In. You can still enjoy Anji's episode on TuneIn.
No word yet on if Naz Reid is cheering Anji on.
