Jeopardy Champs: week of 6-22-15

Our favorite contestant story this week was Kat Cahill’s on Friday. She came in fourth out of about 3,000 entries in a contest for best super heroine. Kat said the publisher liked her creation so much, he published it anyway. Trebek wanted to know if her super heroine might make it to film. After saying she would love that, Kat earnestly looked at camera and said: “Please make Gallant Girl into a motion picture.” She would like Anna Kendrick to play the title character. We hope you at least get an animated series, Kat.
