After winning three consecutive games, contestant Katie Sekelsky said goodbye to Jeopardy! viewers on Wednesday night when she failed to correctly answer the Final Jeopardy! question. (Buzz Lightyear, anyone?) But before heading back to Ohio, the graphic designer reflected on her time on the beloved quiz show and noticed a strange coincidence that was worth sharing with viewers at home.
It all began when Katie was preparing to step onto the Jeopardy! stage for the first time. To steady her nerves, the future champion started drawing. What she didn't expect is that her drawing would soon become her reality on June 15.
“The night before my first @Jeopardy taping, I was alone in the hotel, trying to calm down and ‘visualizing’ a win. I sketched myself at a podium, with a winning-type dollar amount,” she wrote on Twitter. “And that winning-type dollar amount was $19,201. This is real.”
She continued: “This was not on my mind at all while wagering. I was just betting what I needed to in case [Erin Rion] bet everything and got it right.” Katie also added that she sent her drawing to three different people before the moment happened in real life. “THERE ARE RECEIPTS,” she tweeted.
Jeopardy! fans were astonished and a little freaked out that Katie had correctly predicted her winnings in the sketch. “Spooky!” one person wrote. “Wow!!! This is kind of spooky.....I wonder what else you can manifest? Wow!!!” another added. “Well Katie that’s amazing! You are a visionary 👍👏👏👏👏🙂,” someone else said. “That is SO cool!! Love it” a different follower commented.
In the end, Katie took home a total of $37,899 and made her mark in Jeopardy! history with this artwork. What a cool story Katie will always have to tell about her time on Jeopardy!.
