Monday evening’s episode of Jeopardy! on KPAX will have a special Flathead Valley feel as Kalispell’s own Stuart Crane returns to compete on the show.

Born and raised in Montana, Stuart Crane has lived in Kalispell since 2011 with his wife and two kids.

Crane previously appeared on a Jeopardy! episode that aired in February of 2021.

He was invited back to compete in Jeopardy’s Champions wildcard format, which invites back past champions who didn’t qualify for the tournament of champions.

Crane says he was proud to represent the state of Montana on the big stage.

“I did wear an MSU Bobcats necktie, so that will be visible on camera, I don’t know how I snuck that through, but I do feel a sense of pride that I think I am still Montana’s only Jeopardy! Champion and I’m glad to have the opportunity to represent again,” said Crane.

You can watch Crane compete on Jeopardy! at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 13, 2023.
