The game show “Jeopardy!” gave viewers a look at St. Paul's zoo life on Friday, highlighting the Como Zoo with its own category.

The category “At the Como Park Zoo” included questions about a snow leopard, a polar bear, a giraffe, an anaconda and a golden frog - all at the zoo. Question values ranged from $200 to $1,000.

Contestant Rob Worman of Edina successfully defended his title and will return to the show on Monday. Worman works as a self titled “computer nerd” at Veritas in Roseville.

When he got to the category, he said he was “hoping for some sort of question about duck, duck grey duck, or something like that. Instead all the questions were about animals, so no Minnesota advantage.”

He said the shows were taped in Los Angeles around Thanksgiving, so he had to keep the secret for a while.
