Jeopardy to Feature RV Alex-TrebekRVs will be one of the categories during an upcoming broadcast of “Jeopardy!” CBS’s popular quiz show.

On Dec. 7 long-standing host Alex Trebek will give three
contestants a chance to test their knowledge of one of America’s popular
pastimes.

The “Jeopardy!” Clue Crew visited the RV/MH Hall of Fame in
Elkhart, Ind., in August to film a full set of clues all related to
RVing.

“The show approached us,” Al Hesselbart, historian at the RV/MH Hall of Fame, told RVBUSINESS.com.
“We have been so well promoted this past year as a center for the
celebration for the RV Centennial. We have had a lot of air time for all
kinds of different media.”

The questions were filmed at closing time so there was no need to close the hall of fame to visitors.

“The filming did not interfere with museum operations,” Hesselbart
said. “We have shot a dozen TV-related things in here and have not
needed to close down for any shoots.”

The Clue Crew, including two of its three roving correspondents,
Jimmy McGuire and Kelly Miyahara, took about seven hours to complete the
shoot. Since the Clue Crew’s creation in 2001, the team has recorded
clues in over 200 different cities, spanning 45 states and 33 countries.

“It was really startling to me to observe them,” said Tom McNulty,
hall of fame vice president, who was there to host the crew. “They did a
bang up job. I thought it was really fun and they were very
appreciative of us.”

Neither Hesselbart nor McNulty tipped us off as to any of the answers — or questions.
