Wednesday's episode of Jeopardy! will feature questions based on Delta’s heritage and the history of aviation.
The Jeopardy! Clue Crew visited the Delta Flight Museum in April to film segments for the broadcast of the popular quiz show hosted by Alex Trebek.
Clue Crew correspondents Jimmy McGuire and Kelly Miyahara travel the globe to provide contestants and viewers with visual clues through real-life experiences. Since the Clue Crew’s debut in 2001, the roving Jeopardy! ambassadors have recorded clues in 280 different cities, spanning 48 U.S. states and 44 countries worldwide.
McGuire and Miyahara enjoyed the opportunity to tour the museum and film brief clue segments featuring the history of Delta for the show’s signature answer-then-question format.
“This is a thrill for us,” McGuire said. “Learning about aviation history from one of the leading airlines is great.”
Added Miyahara: “It’s fascinating to see the history in person and share it with our viewers. We travel a lot for our jobs. Delta is one of our favorite airlines.”
The team of five, which also included a producer and two camera operators, traveled on Delta from Los Angeles, where Jeopardy! is taped. The daily syndicated version of Jeopardy! has been on the air for more than 30 years.
The Delta Flight Museum team worked closely with the producer to provide access to the exhibits and share history from Delta’s archives.
“This is an exciting and unique opportunity to showcase the museum, the heritage of Delta and the history of aviation,” said John Boatright, President – Delta Flight Museum.
As for the questions and answers the Clue Crew unearthed, well, you'll just have to watch the show.
