Finally, Philadelphia is getting recognition for something other than our propensity for frequent and often heinous murders.
Philly native Sarah Bart will appear on Jeopardy! next Thursday at 7 pm, where she will fight for the title of smartest college student during the Jeopardy College Championship Semifinals. Sarah will “duke” it out against two other male college students, one from Duke and one from George Washington University.
She won an astonishing $18,600 on Friday’s show, which earned her one of the four wild-card spots to be in the tournament. After all is said and done, she is guaranteed to win at least $10,000.
The Goucher College student was quoted saying that “if they could somehow combine geography, mascots and beer, that would be perfect for me.”
Good luck, Sarah and don’t you dare embarrass us.
