How To Become A ‘Jeopardy!’ Champ

Moscow resident Mark Runsvold started the process to be on America's favorite quiz show in January 2009 - a decision that has paid off big. The 25-year-old Jeopardy! champion has racked up $124,201 in three episodes, which locally airs on KHQ at 7 p.m. He will appear on the show again tonight. Runsvold, who is originally from Boise, won $21,201 Tuesday to add to his $48,000 and $55,000 totals from his first and second appearances on the show, which aired Friday and Monday, respectively. He isn't allowed to talk about how many episodes he taped while on the show, or how much his total cash winnings are, until his final episode airs/Christina Lords, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.
