Matt Sojot

Aloha Hawaii, I'm Matt Sojot from Mililani. Watch me on Jeopardy! on KGMB9.

Season 23 player (2007-04-13).
Season 22 player (2006-05-24).

Last name pronounced like "SO-ho".

According to the official Jeopardy! web site, Matt was from Ewa Beach, Hawaii.

Matt was brought back to the show after his appearance on show #5008, aired 2006-05-24. In that game, Matt had the lead going into Final Jeopardy! but both he and 2nd-place contestant Karla Sortland responded incorrectly, allowing Tricia Barreiro to win her second game. According to Kate Zimmermann, Matt wrote to the contestant coordinators, protesting that his first Final Jeopardy! clue in the category PORT CITIES was ambiguous enough to make his response of "Kiev" potentially correct, and The Powers That Be opted to return him to the show. Karla was also given a return appearance about two months after Matt.

Matt appeared in the following archived game:
#5008, aired 2006-05-24 Tricia Barreiro vs. Matt Sojot vs. Karla Sortland
Matt would later appear on Jeopardy! as Matt Sojot in the following archived game:
