Have you ever wondered what it’s like to actually be on a game show? As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago during our Nickelodeon series, the desire to be on a game show as a kid, and really as an adult as well, is something that a lot of people have. It’s sort of a rare thing to be able to say, “I know a guy that was on Jeopardy!“, but good news JUGheads, now YOU can!

This week, our good friend and most frequent guest of the podcast, Dan Marsh returns to the show to talk about his recent appearance on Jeopardy!, America’s favorite quiz show. For those of you that know Dan, you’ll know that his appearance on the show is a fulfillment of a life-long dream.

Dan takes us behind the scenes of the Jeopardy! audition process, mock games, and what it was like to get the call letting him know that he’d be appearing on the Emmy award winning program. Dan reveals what it was like on the set of the show, and gives some insight you probably can’t see from the comfort of your own home.

What’s it like for Dan now that the show has aired? The Jeopardy! subreddit has provided some entertainment since the show aired, for sure.

As we mentioned in the show, and just for a bit of fun, here’s Dan as Edna Turnblad.
