JCPS Teacher to Appear on “Jeopardy!” Tomorrow

Tomorrow night, a JCPS teacher will appear on the hit trivia competition show “Jeopardy!” — after more than two years of waiting.

Evan Roberts, a science teacher at Fern Creek High School, took the online qualifying test to appear on the show back in January 2020.

Then, of course, the pandemic put much of the entertainment business on hold. Roberts finally got the opportunity to film his episode in January 2022.

It’ll air on WLKY tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m.

In a public Facebook post, Roberts said, “Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me during this process. To say this has been a dream come true is an understatement, and I can’t wait to share this moment with all my friends and family.”
