A civil servant from Vancouver, Canada...

Barbara-Anne Eddy

Date of first appearance:
February 1988

Total winnings:
$52,000 [plus $1,000 in the 1988 ToC]

Nickname:
It's not specifically due to this performance, but a Canadian newspaper writer who found out about this and my other radio and TV appearances christened me "Canada 's quiz show queen."

Records held:
5-time champion

Favourite anecdote:
I was astonished that Alex Trebek not only remembered my appearance on The $128,000 Question, of which he was the host, but even remembered Fenton, my "good-luck" frog mascot.

Effect on my life:
Enormous! It amazes me how impressed people are with me when they find out that I've been on Jeopardy! ("I could never do that!"); when they discover that I was a five-time champ, they're sometimes rendered speechless. Secondarily, but just as importantly, the money, along with whatever I could earn from part-time work, allowed me to live without full-time work for almost a decade.

What people should know about me:
I love reading, attending theatre, travelling, and singing karaoke (especially tunes of the 80s).
