If you watched Jeopardy! Monday on KOTA Territory you may have noticed that a man from Sheridan among the contestants. And he won, taking home nearly $24,000.
Patrick Geary put his knowledge of trivia and academics to the test on the popular game show. Geary taped his appearance in Los Angeles in April, and he was able to watch the show's debut with family and friends Monday, just one day shy of his 26th birthday.
Geary says he only felt nervous during the practice rounds right before the show started.
"I was pretty nervous during all that, the anticipation of it. Once the actual show got going, I was, at least, just so zoned in," said Geary.
Unfortunately, he was not able to win two shows in a row. But the lifelong Jeopardy fan called just being on the show a "surreal" experience.
The process started for Geary when he took an online test all the way back in January of last year.
