Bob Mesko

Hello Denver, I'm Bob Mesko. Watch me on Jeopardy! to see if I soar for the "Mile High City."

2006 Tournament of Champions wildcard semifinalist: $10,000.
Season 22 5-time champion: $68,599 + $2,000.

A poorly-worded Daily Double that cost Bob his fourth game resulted in his return to the show a few months after his first appearance. He went on to win two more games in Season 22.

Last name pronounced like "MESS-ko".

Bob died at the age of 49 on 2012-11-16, after battling cancer, including two stem-cell transplants for both lymphoma and leukemia.
