Here’s Why The New Jeopardy Champ Doesn’t Want to Visit Rockford
The king of Jeopardy James Holzhauer gave up his throne this week to a new champion. Emma Boettcher is a University of Chicago librarian who is the Jeopardy winner in the news right now. The 27-year-old North Side resident earned $25,601 on Wednesday’s episode for a three-day win total of $97,002.
That's a whole lot of travel money! Why do I say that? She told “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek that her travel goal this year is to visit major cities that only have the “o” vowel in their name, including London and Toronto.
When Trebek asked her what others she replied -
Well, Rockford, Illinois, is closest, but perhaps not as glamorous a destination.
Come on Emma!!! Don't do us like that. Rockford is a great destination to visit and you should definitely put us on your "O vowel only city" list.
