BANGOR – This local writer and editor is going to appear on “Jeopardy!”

Who is … me?

Yeah - you’re going to see me on “Jeopardy!”

For real. I, Allen Adams, editor of The Maine Edge, will make my “Jeopardy!” debut on October 30. The syndicated question and answer show – currently in the midst of its 35th anniversary season – airs locally at 7:30 p.m. on WVII.

And I’m going to be on it. I stood in the studio under the lights and rang the buzzer and answered questions and met Alex Trebek. The whole shebang.

That’s really about all I can say about it right now. I’m not at liberty to discuss the results or specific clues or anything like that until after airing. I certainly can’t say whether or not I won. For that, you’ll have to tune in yourself.

For those interested, Orono Brewing Company is hosting a watch party on Oct. 30. That’s where I’ll be, watching the show and drinking a beer or two. It’s open to the public, so if the mood strikes you, come on by and see how I do.

There will be more to come when it’s allowed, obviously, but for now, I can tell you that I’m greatly looking forward to watching. It was an extremely positive experience and I had a wonderful time; I’ll let you know the rest when I can.

Appearing on “Jeopardy!” has been a dream of mine ever since I had any kind of awareness of what the show even was. My family can attest – both to my dream and how generally annoying I was to watch “Jeopardy!” alongside.

Really, I’d like to tell you everything. And I will eventually. And I apologize in advance for any dorkiness – overt or subtle – that comes through. But for now, I just hope that you’ll tune in on Tuesday and cheer me on.
