A local Astoria woman will have her moment in the spotlight next week.
Chelsea Cohen, a production editor at Simon & Schuster publishing company, will be a guest on Jeopardy next Thursday. The episode will air on ABC at 7 p.m. that evening.
The quiz show, which is in its 33rd season, tests contestants on their knowledge of various categories of questions.
Cohen taped the show on August 31st, and tweeted about practicing for the show in the days leading up to it.
“Coming up with five interesting facts about myself is in fact the hardest part of preparing for Jeopardy,” she tweeted on August 16.
Several days earlier she shared, “My Sunday night: watching old episodes of Jeopardy on YouTube while eating ice cream and using the spoon as a practice buzzer #jeopardyprep.”
On December 1 she tweeted a photo of herself on the show, writing ,“nbd just hanging out with my BFF Alex Trebek @Jeopardy.”
