Jeopardy to hold Professors Tournament

Hey, Jeopardy! fans, from December 6 to December 17, the show will hold its first-ever Professors Tournament.  The tournament will be hosted by Mayim Byalik.  15 college and university professors from across the United States will test their knowledge for a chance at $100,000. The competition will be styled in a similar fashion to the show's popular Tournament of Champions.  The winner of the Professors rounds will earn a spot in the 2022 Tournament of Champions contest.  

The first match on December 6 will feature Hester Blum, Professor of English at Penn State University in University Park, Pennsylvania,  She will compete against Gautan Hans, associate clinical professor of law at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee and Gary Hollis, professor of chemistry at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia.
