Maine Man Competing on Jeopardy Tonight!
Over the years several Mainers, some pretty successfully, have been on the hit show Jeopardy, and tonight, it will happen again. According to WMTW, Mainer Nathan Berger will be on this evening's episode at 7:30. He is described as being a restaurateur and a sommelier.
. A Restaurateur is someone who own, operates or starts up a restaurant- as the name would kind of already imply. A sommelier is a french word for someone who is in charge of a restaurant's wine stock. They create the wine lists and are responsible for rotating the wine on the shelf as need be. Is there a name for someone who does that with bourbon? I want to be one of those!
Taking a look back at other Mainers who have competed on Jeopardy we have, Tiffany Eisenhauer, she was on the show back in April. Tiffany is a physician's assistant from Freeport. A bartender from Old Orchard beach was on in January. His name is Dennis Coffee, and he won more than $50,000 as a three-time champion. More local to us was Jessica Garsed. She was on last October and is from Augusta. She was also a three-time champion and took home more than $50,000 in winnings.
