Mama gets on Jeopardy!
3 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Jeopardy recruiters are in Raytown, Iola auditions and misses but Thelma is chosen to be the player from Raytown, the pride of the Tri state region. She gets to play alongside college professors and scholars. While she tries to get the hang of the game, she doesn't seem to be do all so well among the contestants. Unlike Jeopardy itself, she speaks more than she should and suggests that Alex and Iola should hook-up for a date. She also kisses Alex as well. When the episode finally airs even with the final questions, Thelma's final standing in the episode determines her prize. She suggests that she's getting a box of turtle wax or something of the sort. You don't have to be first to get a prize or any prize.
