A development officer for a museum from Hoboken, New Jersey...

Janet Wong

Date of original appearance:
February 7, 2000

Total Winnings:

2000 College Champion (the "first" one. There were two College Championships that year. My tournament aired in February and Pam Mueller's aired in the fall).

Favorite anecdote:
After my final game of the College Championship aired, I mouthed hello to one of my high school teachers--which she recognized and claimed prompted her to fall off her couch.

Did being on Jeopardy! have an effect on your life?
Oh, absolutely. It fulfilled a wish I'd had since I was a kid and afforded me a terrific experience. Unfortunately, ever since then people think I know the answer to everything.

Anything else you would like viewers to know about you?
After college graduation, I taught English in Japan (where I tried to teach my middle schoolers--with little success--how to play Jeopardy!).
