Journo Puts Himself in Serious Jeopardy

On Oct. 17, this Washington Editor will risk everything — his peace of mind, his reputation, his public image and his self-esteem — to appear on this game show.

Answer: Who is Jeff Dufour, Washington Editor of UrbanDaddy and what is Jeopardy!?

Ding. Ding. Ding.

Getting on Jeopardy! was no cake walk. Dufour had to apply, study his ass off, take an online test and go through a tryout at the St. Regis so producers could make sure he wasn’t an idiot.”Yeah, it’s a lot of fun,” he told FishbowlDC the other night. He wouldn’t divulge any other details, such as if he bombed, froze, cussed out Alex Trebek or won the game.

We look forward to watching our favorite UrbanDaddy show off his intelligence and debriefing with him after.
