Who is Lawrence Long?

LAWRENCE Long made headlines in February 2022 after he won $23,201 on an episode of Jeopardy!.

He then returned to the stage on February 8, and fans began to wonder who the Jeopardy! champ is.

Who is Lawrence Long?

Long was born in Winston-Salem and is now a resident of East Bend, North Carolina.

Outside of Jeopardy! he is known as a nursing student and is a member of the Bunker Dogs improv comedy group.

He is also reportedly a stay-at-home uncle to his 11-year-old niece.

Prior to his Jeopardy! appearance, Long trained for the trivia-based game show as if it was a professional sport, according to WFMY News.

"Claire McNair who wrote the recent Jeopardy book about it has compared it to a professional sport. And with the trend and all of these long-term champions, it is very much becoming that level of preparation. People are making large sums of monies on each of these games and they're going on extended streaks and that's fantastic," Long told the media outlet.

Outside of his gameshow appearances, not much additional information is available about Long's personal life.

How long is Lawrence Long on Jeopardy!?

Jeopardy! episodes are taped prior to airing and it often remains unclear how long a contestant is on.

The same goes for Long's case as it remains unclear how long his Jeopardy! run will go on.

"There's this space when people talk about something that exists in the past, but it hasn't happened yet on the broadcast stage and you can't talk about it," he said, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

"I do think there's merit to that — the reveal of what happens, the drama of seeing it unfold live, there is something to that," he continued.

How can I watch Jeopardy!?

Jeopardy! was first introduced in March 1964 and has been on-air ever since.

The show can be watched weekdays on your local NBC stations. For an exact channel, it is recommended to check the Jeopardy! website.

As of February 2022, the show is hosted by The Big Bang Theory's neuroscientist Mayim Bialik. She took over the position following the tragic 2020 passing of Alex Trebek, who had hosted the show for 37 seasons.
