Plainfield English Teacher Wins on Jeopardy! She’s At It Again Today.

Put one in the bag for Naperville resident and Plainfield East English teacher Erin Portman!

Yesterday, we all witnessed complete and utter domination from Ms. Portman as she racked up $31,201 to become the new Jeopardy! champion, defeating Connecticut real estate analyst Alec Wang and the previous champion, Canadian risk manager Vince Bacani.

Sounds like he didn’t properly manage the risk involved with competing with Ms. Portman, am I right!?

Portman was in control of the game from the very beginning. She was winning going into the Final Jeopardy question, and nailed it for the win.

In 1692 Increase Mather wrote, “It were better that ten suspected” these “escape, than that one innocent person … be condemned”

The answer: What are witches.

Erin takes on two new contestants today on Jeopardy! which airs at 3:30 on ABC.
