This isn't the first time a person with C-U ties has been on Jeopardy. In fact, on this episode, Wells' competitor Matt Amodio surpassed the 2nd best winning streak on the show, surpassing U of I alum James Holzhauer. She also joins Pranjal Vachaspati, Seth Wilson, and Anne Lukeman in the "C-U people who've been on Jeopardy" club.
