What is: vote to get a 90's Jeopardy! champ back on the show?

Posted By on Mon, Oct 7, 2013 at 2:12 PM


Little Rock radiologist and former Jeopardy! champ Shane Whitlock  is one of five possible candidates looking to recapture former glory by appearing on the show's upcoming "Battle of the Decades" tournament, with a shot at $1 million clams. To do it, though, he needs your online vote.

Back in 1996, Whitlock won the Jeopardy! College Championship, taking home $32,800 in his first appearance. He's since competed in two other Jeopardy tournaments. BONUS: As seen in the video profile of Whitlock above, Whitlock met his wife after she came asking for advice before trying out for the show and they've since had a kid. Sadly, they didn't name him either "Alex" or "Double Jeopardy." 

Voting for those slots in the Battle of the Decade tournament starts today. If Whitlock gets in, he'll be up against possible-cyborg Ken Jennings — who is clearly the Johnny Lawrence of the gameshow world — but you never know. Whitlock's clearly a smart guy, and might have some kind of form-of-a-question crane-kick stuff up his sleeve.

You can vote for Whitlock to be on the show by visiting this link, or by tweeting #jeopardyvote and "Shane Whitlock."
