L.A. Chowhound Jerome won the second of his semi-final matches on the Jeopardy show that aired tonight, taking home $50,000 and earning a slot on the finals next week. Jerome will face a seconed semi-finals winner and Ken Jennings, the all-time highest money winner on Jeopardy in the finals next week. Up for grabs next week is $2,000,000 in prize money.

Jerome answered all of the food questions correctly tonight. WAY TO GO JEROME!

      Yeah, I remember you talking about that in that little segment Alex does with the contestants.

        Congrats and best of luck!

        As a former Jeopardy! contestant (my airdate was
        SF Valley earthquake day) I can attest to the fact
        that it is not as easy as it looks from home!

        Go Jerome...even though as a Utah resident I would
        like to see the state get another chunk of revenue
        thanks to Ken Jennings' prodigious vault o' trivia!

            No, that's not what he really looks like, that is just his TV personna. I have met him, he is 35 years old, is six feet two, weighs 190 pounds, does not have glasses, has a physique like Jack LaLane, and has a bimbo on each arm at all times.

              "....has a physique like Jack LaLane, and has a bimbo on each arm at all times....."

              And I wonder why my life seems out of balance...My bimbo's look like Jack LaLane and my physique is that of a the Goodyear Blimpo....

                I think you're thinking of Jim Leff.

                  No, it's John Lovett from SNL...

                  I LOVE watching this guy...his facial expressions are great! He was so shocked last night when he won. Kudos to Jerome!

                  It's syndicated, so it depends on your local stations.

                  In the SF Bay Area it's on Channel 7 at 7 pm.
