Dara Lost It All On Jeopardy
Now I can figure out why Dara Lind, a Yale junior from Symmes Township, never called me back to talk about her experience on the "Jeopardy!" college championship.
Lind, 20, a 2005 Sycamore High Schgool graduate, lost it all on "Jeopardy!" tonight.
She finished last with no money in the first round.
Lind incorrectly guessed that John Quincy Adams – not Theodore Roosevelt – was the youngest U.S. president to leave the White House in final Jeopardy.
The daughter of Joel and Sherry Lind of Symmes Township was in third place most of the night behind eventual winner Joey Beachum, 22, of Mississippi State University, and Andrew Chung, 20, of Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif.
In the first round, Lind missed four of 10 questions to finish with negative $100. By the end of the second round she was up to $11,900 – but that was $7,900 behind Beachum. The two-week tourney ends May 16.
