‘Jeopardy!’ All-Star Will Feature Princeton Alumni Contestant
A Princeton University Alumni is set to appear on 'Jeopardy!' All-Star.
Apparently one of the best ever contests on 'Jeopardy!' went to school right here at Princeton University. His name is David Madden and of course he would be invited back for the 'Jeopardy!' All-Star tournament.
Legit, he had a 19-game winning streak back in 2005 which earned him a pretty penny too ($432,400 to be exact). Not to mention he scored bragging rights for holding the title as 3rd longest winning streak on the popular game show.
What he did with all the money he scored was even more impressive then his wins. According to patch.com, "Madden took the money he earned from his 2005 appearances and founded International Academic Competitions, which has established several national and international academic competitions, including the National Science Bee, International Geography Bee, and the National History Bee and Bowl."
Alongside Madden will stand some of his long time friends for the tournament finals next week. Yep, two of his teammates Larissa Kelly (who attended Princeton with him) and Brad Rutter (his team caption) are actually good friends of his.
"The hike was a "great adventure and to be able to do it for a great charity make it that much better," Madden said in an interview with "Jeopardy!" officials" via patch.com.
