You Won’t Believe How Many Times ‘Texarkana’ is on This Game Show
If you watch Jeopardy then might already know this but if you don't or aren't a regular watcher, did you know that Texarkana has been mentioned as either the subject of the question or it was the answer?
According to the J-archive website, Texarkana has been mentioned 11 times! The most recent was last year in October and the first time was way back in 1987. Below I have listed the Jeopardy 'answers' because the questions are the answers and the answer is the question. Yeah, you know what I mean. You can click on the highlighted date and it will take you to the archived Jeopardy game board.
