His longhand might be short on clarity, but Baltimore ‘Jeopardy!’ champion’s scrawl is deemed legible enough

September 23, 2022

The Baltimore resident who won three games of “Jeopardy!” raised some eyebrows among the trivia show’s fans for his messy handwriting on Monday’s show. Emmett Stanton, 34, who won Friday, Monday and Tuesday before losing Wednesday, is a freelance writer who lives in Mount Vernon. In response to the clue, “The Governor of Massachusetts wrote, it ‘is a poor document, but a mighty act…wrong in its delay till January, but grand & sublime after all,’” Stanton wrote an answer that host Ken Jennings deemed correct: “what is the Emancipation Proclamation?” Stanton wagered all his money, $8,000, on the Final Jeopardy! question in the category Historic Documents.
