Pennington, NJ Woman On Jeopardy! Tuesday Night
You may recognize one of the contestants on tomorrow night's (Tuesday, February 8th) episode of Jeopardy! National College Championship on ABC-TV, and streaming on Hulu.
Mercer Me is reporting that Catherine Zhang from Pennington will be competing. How exciting. I love when local people are on tv and I can say, "Hey, she lives near me." Lol.
Zhang graduated from Hopewell Valley High School in 2018. She's currently a senior at Cornell majoring in Computer Science and Sociology. Her teachers must be so proud....and her family too, obviously.
Zhang told Mercer Me, "I've been watching Jeopardy! since I was young, so learning that I was going to be on the show was unbelievably exciting and surreal. I was definitely pretty nervous going into the filming process, but, the producers made it such a wonderful experience, and I got to meet so many amazing students from around the country. I couldn't be more grateful to have had this opportunity, and I still can't quite believe I got to fulfill a lifelong dream of being on the show."
Zhang is one of thirty-six undergrad college students trying to win the grand prize of $250,000. Wow. The 2nd place prize is $100,000, and the student who comes in 3rd place will win $50,000.
Mayim Bialik is hosting. Check out a picture of Zhang and Bialik here.
Of course, we don't know the outcome yet, and Zhang isn't permitted to reveal how she did yet, so you're going to have to tune in starting tomorrow night to find out.
Good luck, Catherine. Everyone at 94.5 PST is rooting for you.
