Jackie Fuchs Talks Being the Reigning “Jeopardy!” Champion


Madison Bloom, writing at Pitchfork:

Jackie Fuchs—who was the bassist for the Runways from 1975 to 1977 under the name Jackie Fox—is the current reigning “Jeopardy!” champion. As of last night, she’s on a four-win streak. Fuchs made her first appearance on Friday, December 14, but it wasn’t until her third appearance, on Tuesday night, when Alex Trebek finally acknowledged her tenure in the band. Fuchs won for the fourth time by correctly answering a question about the poet Dylan Thomas.
