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.”
