Collins is a 2005 graduate of Wellesley College and she told her college’s e-newsletter: “I’ve watched the show since I was a little kid, maybe 8 or 9. It was on mid-afternoon when I was growing up, so I could watch after school.”

Collins tried out for the show five years ago and never got a call back but, she tried out again in 2013 and was invited on the show in December.

 

Former “Jeopardy!” champ Ken Jennings holds the longest winning streak for Jeopardy ever, with 74 wins in a row in 2004 and total earnings of $3,196,300.
