A custodial facilitator from St. Louis, Missouri...

Røb Severson

Hello, St. Louis. I'm Røb Severson. Leave work early to beat I-64 construction traffic to catch me on Jeopardy!

Season 26 player (2009-11-17).

Name pronounced like "ROB SEE-ver-sun".

Røb wore a clashing ensemble of green jacket, blue slacks, yellow shirt, and red tie for his appearance, prompting contestant coordinator Maggie Speak to tease him, "Do you have a more colorful outfit you could wear on the show, then?" in a behind-the-scenes segment produced for Nightline aired 2009-10-30, and for Alex Trebek to remark to co-challenger Magdalen Powers, "obviously, you and I did not get the memo that today's program would be televised in color, not black-and-white" in his opening remarks during Røb's game.

Røb's name appeared with the Scandinavian letter ø in it both as printed on-screen during his introduction, and as he wrote it on his podium.

Røb appeared in the following archived game:
#5792, aired 2009-11-17 Chris Rodrigues vs. Røb Severson vs. Magdalen Powers
