Ballard man wins Jeopardy, will be back tonight

On Tuesday night, Ballardite Tom Nissley won a round of Jeopardy, and he will be back again this evening.

After winning nearly $25,000 on his first night, Nissley says that while he’s relieved to win Jeopardy, he did have one concern during the 30-minute game show – not being able to think fast enough to answer. “That was my biggest fear, getting a question that I absolutely should know and not answer it,” Nissley says. You can see the entire interview here.

According to, this was the Final Jeopardy clue which all three contestants got right: “In 1988, this country boycotted the Summer Olympics after its demand to co-host the games was refused.” The answer is “What is North Korea?”

Nissley will be back on Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. on channel 4.
