Did You See Augusta, Maine, Featured on ‘Jeopardy!’? Here Was the Answer
If you blinked you might have missed it, but Augusta, Maine, was featured in a question, errr answer, on the hit TV game show, "Jeopardy!" on Thursday, January 19.
I just happened to catch a post in my Facebook newsfeed from the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce about it and, lo and behold, the answer had everything to do with the local chamber.
The answer on last night's show read,
"The Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce is found in this New England State Capital".
Of course, as we all know, the answer (errrr question) was "What is Augusta?", and yes, the contestant did in fact get the answer right.
Maine has been featured a number of times on the popular game show.
They've ranged from answers like "Maine's Official Dessert" to "This city in Maine is sisters with Shinagawa, Japan, a city of 350,000 inside the borough of Tokyo." The questions, of course, are "What is blueberry pie?" and "What is Portland?"
Think you could get the answers (errrr questions) right when it comes to Maine on the show?
"Jeopardy!" has been around since 1964, according to britannica.com, but it wasn't until the show was relaunched in 1984 Alex Trebek would take on the role of host.
Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik are the show's current hosts.
