“Celebrity Jeopardy!” Million Dollar Winner, Lisa Ann Walter, checks in with The Preston & Steve Show

From Parent Trap to winning one million dollars for charity on Celebrity Jeopardy!, star of Abbott Elementary, Lisa Ann Walter graced the airwaves this morning.

We flooded the phone line with congratulatory praise, but Lisa was more than excited to tell us about her nerves going into last night’s big show.

Anxiety levels were running high on the night of filming. We learned that while pressing the button early didn’t affect her score, Lisa did admit to sitting out on questions she could confidently answer.

The shining moment of the night came when answering a question about Villanova University. Lisa whipped out the accent she perfected on screen so many years ago and answered/asked, “Wut es Phil-uh-delfia.” Lemme tell ya, that jawn was on point.

If you are not familiar with the format of Celebrity Jeopardy!, the famous contestants faceoff in a series of tournaments, then the top three faceoff in the finals. This year is came down to CBS Sunday Mornings’ correspondent Mo Rocca, sports commentator, Katie Nolan and of course, the inevitable champion.

The million dollar prize is heading to an organization close to Lisa’s heart. She proudly chose the Entertainment Community Fund as the recipient of her prize winnings. The money will be going to actors and writers affected by the Hollywood strike.  

On the big night of the primetime debut of the show, Lisa Ann hosted a watch party with family and friends. Spoiler alert- she already knew she friggin won!

It was a short check before hitting the hair and make-up trailer on set. Oh, yeah, “Abbott Elementary” is back filming. Season 3 debuts February 7th on ABC.
