CTV NEWS – Who is Diandra D’Alessio? She’s a Montrealer, a technical writer, a history lover — and she’s last Friday night’s Jeopardy winner.
The self-proclaimed trivia buff made it out on top with $3,299 under her belt.
While she and the other contestants failed to answer the Final Jeopardy question correctly (who are the Jutes?), D’Alessio wagered relatively low and emerged victorious.
Will she follow in the footsteps of fellow-Canadian Mattea Roach with a winning streak? We’ll find out Monday night.
“I would say the best way to prepare is to, number one, watch Jeopardy regularly because it gives you an idea of the clues and categories that you’ll see. And also reading a lot is another suggestion,” she said.
D’Alessio, for one, has been watching since she was a pre-teen. Being on the set was a long-time dream come true — and left her with lasting friendships.
“Everybody from the contestants to the crew to the host — in our case, it was Mayim Bialik — were super nice. The contestants I’ve met, we are super close.Even to this day, we talk every day, we have a group chat going on.”
