Local woman to appear on Jeopardy!

WILL BE ON TV–Lauren Kiehna of Steeleville will be one of the contestants featured on this Friday’s episode of Jeopardy! She is pictured in one of the show’s publicity photos on set with show host Alex Trebek.

This Friday, July 6, local viewers may notice a familiar face when they tune in to watch Jeopardy! as Laruen Kiehna, of Steeleville, will be one of the contestants featured in that episode.

Previously Kiehna had talked with the North County News about her experience on the show, starting with taking the online test last year, going to an audition in Chicago and finally flying out to Los Angeles in March for the show’s taping.

Kiehna had signed a non-disclosure agreement, so until the episode airs, she can’t speak to anyone about what happened during the episode she is in, the clues used on that show or how she did. Not even her family knows yet how she did.

She was able to comment about the experience though. “The whole thing was surreal. It was a great experience overall and everyone was nice.”
