ROSEVILLE, Minn. (KMSP) - The winning streak for an Edina man on 'Jeopardy!' has come to end.
Rob Worman gathered his friends and co-workers at Veritas Technologies in Roseville to watch his seventh appearance on 'Jeopardy,' which quickly got off to a rocky start.
In the previous six episodes, Worman of Edina dominated the competition, winning more than $133,000. He credits his self-described "lint-trap mind."
“Just interesting facts are going to stick,” said Worman. “I'm not sure where I parked my car, but at the same time I'm going to remember the brand of camera you have there for the next 10 years.”
A fan of the show alongside his dad since he was 15, Worman didn't make the cut years ago when he tried out for 'Teen Jeopardy.' This time around and sworn to secrecy after taping the show in November, Worman's antics across from Alex Trebek reflect his trivia smarts, sense of humor as well as impromptu dancing and a special talent of singing the alphabet backwards.
While the winning streak came to an end Thursday night, both for Worman and those living vicariously through him, he says he thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
“It's been so fun and everyone has been so wonderful and supportive,” he said.
Worman now qualifies for the Jeopardy Tournament of Champions, in which a quarter of million dollars is at stake. There's no exact timeline for when those episodes will he taped, but Worman says he going to start studying soon.
In the meantime, he says the money he's earned will go toward his daughter’s college fund, a new hammock and maybe a long weekend vacation.
