‘Jeopardy’ Contestant Wins Big After Surprising His Girlfriend With On-Air Proposal

“Jeopardy” contestant Michael Pascuzzi became the real winner of Thursday’s episode after he popped the question to his girlfriend, Maria Shafer, live on-air.

Host Alex Trebek, who appeared on the show minus his much-talked about beard, pretended like he had nothing to say during one segment, as Pascuzzi insisted he could fill in for him.

He then proposed to his other half, who wasted no time at all in saying “Yes.”

“Yes, of course!” Shafer gushed, before remembering the show’s famous format, adding: “That would be, ‘What is yes?!'”

“I was about to say ‘We’ll have the answer to that question right after this commercial break,'” Trebek then joked about Shafer’s speedy reply.

Despite Pascuzzi ending up finishing second during the latest instalment of the show, he still managed to win big.

Trebek told viewers: “Great day for us and a great day for Michael,” at the end of the show.
