Edina man closes in on $100K winnings on Jeopardy!

Rob Worman has won four days in a row.

Jeopardy! has been a treat for Minnesota fans the past few days, as they watch one of their own succeed in a big way.

Rob Worman, of Edina, is an escalation manager for Veritas Technologies in Roseville. He has won four in a row on the NBC show and his wealth is accumulating.

As he attempts his 5th win in the show broadcasting on Tuesday, he stands on $92,298.


– Como Zoo was a category in Jeopardy!

The Star Tribune reports that he's been enjoying watching the shows (which were taped after Thanksgiving) at viewing parties with his colleagues in Roseville.

And he's also proving a fun presence on Twitter, interacting with Jeopardy! fans who sympathized with him having to recite the alphabet backwards before Alex Trebek after revealing it was a skill of his.

You can catch his next “Jeopardy!” appearance at 4:30 p.m. Central Tuesday on KARE 11. 

Worman is no stranger to quiz show winnings. In 2010, he found his way onto Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, walking away with $25,000 as you can see in the video below.
