How to Get on Jeopardy & Win: Valuable Information from a Champion

How to Get on Jeopardy & Win: Valuable Information from a Champion Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What does it take to make it onto America's favorite quiz show? What goes on behind the scenes during a typical day of shooting? What is Alex Trebek really like? Mike Dupee, the 1996 Jeopardy Tournament of Champions winner, reveals all this and more in the ultimate guide to being a contestant and winning on Jeopardy.

This book will take fans step by step through the Jeopardy experience, from getting a tryout to winning it all. Readers will learn dozens of secrets about the show that most contestants, including their competition, won't know. They will read behind-the-scenes accounts of Jeopardy champions that will make them feel like they're standing right on the soundstage. They will learn three features of the playing board not seen at home; how to master the picky buzzer (which often keeps the smartest players from answering questions); and the most strategic bets to make on Daily Doubles and Final Jeopardy scenarios.

Additionally, the author reveals the show's most frequently asked facts in its most popular categories, without burdening readers with material that Jeopardy never asks. Readers can quiz themselves with thousands of Jeopardy-style questions covering hundreds of categories. Plus, the book offers tasty bits of trivia about Jeopardy and Alex Trebek.

Every night seventeen million people across America watch Jeopardy, and every year nearly 250,000 people try to become contestants on the show. This book tells them what they need to know, not only to make it onto the show, but also to win. Plus, the author shares his own story of how he overcame jitters, lost luggage, and buzzer problems to become top Jeopardy winner in 1996.
