Manchester woman wins big on Jeopardy
MANCHESTER - A Queen City woman who won at least $42,000 on the game show Jeopardy said it is not as easy as it seems to use those famous clicking devices.
"There's a staff person whose only job is to set off, basically, let the buzzers be open and they flash a little light on the sides of the board that you can't see in the audience, but you can see when you're right across from it, and that can be the trigger, or you can wait for Alex to start talking and that can be the trigger," Kerry Greene said on Friday afternoon.
Greene was scheduled to appear again on Jeopardy Friday night. She was not able to disclose the amount of her final winnings, but she talked about how she has aspired to be on the show since she watched it with her family before heading to college, where she watched the show with friends.
Many of those college friends have reached out to Greene, saying they remember her watching Jeopardy since her freshman year.
"I've always watched it over the years and once the online test became available, it was so easy. Basically, you didn't have to write to anybody. You didn't have to make any phone calls, just click-click-click," Greene said.
Greene won $23,601 on Thursday night, beating the second-place contestant by just $1.
