A Thornhill, Ont. lawyer says his experience as a litigator prepared him well for his adventure as a contestant on Jeopardy!
After ironically being dubbed “the foreigner” by the popular game show’s Canadian-born host Alex Trebek, Queen’s Law grad Jordan Nussbaum’s fatigue prevented his brain from summoning “New Jersey” to answer which U.S. state is named for a European island. Falling behind after leading the whole game, Nussbaum’s Jeopardy! career concluded after a two-episode campaign.
“It's an experience that most people don’t tend to get,” says Nussbaum.
