Neil Uspal on Jeopardy! game show

Uspal, Neil_Jeporady_220x180If you watch Jeopardy! you might have noticed a familiar face on the TV back in January. Neil Uspal, MD, was featured in three episodes. 

How did you end up getting on the TV show?

I actually watch Jeopardy! a lot – it’s the one TV show we all can agree on at home. I thought I’d be OK at it, so when they offered an online test to get on the show I took it. This was in 2014. I then did an in-person audition in Portland, also in 2014. I didn’t hear back until September of 2016, when they invited me on the show!

How many episodes were you on?

I was on three episodes: Jan. 19, 20 and 23.

How’d you do? How much did you win? 

I won two episodes with total winnings of ~$25,000 (before taxes!).

What was your favorite part about it?

The staff at the show did a really nice job making everyone comfortable and making the filming fun. It was also cool to meet my fellow contestants – an interesting group of people from around the U.S. Finally, it was really neat to watch my first episode with some of my work colleagues and talk to them about the experience.
