Deb Teitelbaum of Sylva, a former public school teacher and longtime show fan, will appear as a contestant on “Jeopardy!” during the program’s upcoming broadcast at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24 on WLOS-TV.
Her advice for other constestants: “It’s all about the buzzer,” Teitelbaum said. “Everybody on the show is knowledgeable. Whoever gets a jump on the buzzer has the advantage. To win one game is difficult, to do what Ken Jennings did and win 74 consecutive games is remarkable.”
