Who is Awesome? We Are Rooting for Gwen From Missoula on Jeopardy
Jeopardy has been around since the dawn of time it seems. It actually has been around since 1964. But, save that for another trivia night at your local pub. Regardless the show has been dishing out some serious quiz questions every weeknight for much of our lives.
Since Jeopardy has been airing its weeknight trivia questions, Montana occasionally gets involved.
These are usually pretty lighthearted quiz questions about the great state of Montana. Typically highlighting famous landmarks, businesses, parks, and towns in the state.
For example, just shortly after the passing of long-time Jeopardy host, Alex Trebek, Montana was featured as a question on the quiz show.
If you answered, "What is a tiki bar?" You are correct.
Back in 2019, Missoula Montana was featured on everyone's favorite "Quiz Show." In case you missed it, the Missoula Osprey snuck into the list of questions about minor league baseball teams around the country.
Now it appears that Missoula's own Gwen Lockman is going to test her wits in the greatest quiz show of all time.
According to KPAX
Lockman's knack for trivia comes from her family's love of Jeopardy, they'd play the show while Gwen was growing up, and her academic background in history. While working on a dissertation for her Ph.D. in Butte, the trivia fanatic would play at the Butte Public Library and at bar trivia in Anaconda. After her time in Butte, Lockman took the test and got on the show.
Gwen will be representing Montana on national television TONIGHT (3/15/23) at 6 pm .
