Most of our readers know that Ocracoke High School English teacher, Charles Temple, was the Jeopardy TV program's $100,000 winner of last spring's Teacher's Tournament (see our blog for May 14, 2011).
Just a few weeks ago, at the end of September, Charles flew back to Los Angeles for the taping of Jeopardy's "Tournament of Champions." He was competing in the program's ultimate contest of the minds for the top prize of $250,000.
Be sure to keep the dates open, so you can watch as Charles goes head to head with past winners this coming November 2 - 15.
As usual, Charles keeps a tight poker face. I saw him immediately after he returned home from the taping...and I have no idea how he fared.
