Inside how two Jeopardy! contestants found love on the show and married 9 years later

THESE Jeopardy! contestants went from competitors to lovers after meeting on the show and then marrying nine years later.

The two met during the 2012 Jeopardy! College Championship before serendipitously reconnecting years later in Washington DC.

The trivia show posted Sarah Bauer and Greer Mackebee's romance on their website alongside other alumni stories.

"Greer Mackebee and I met as participants in the 2012 Jeopardy! College Championship," Bauer wrote on the site.

"We were even in the same Jeopardy! audition months before getting the call to be in the tournament."

Bauer said they fulfilled a lifelong dream that day as both their families are avid watchers of the program.

"Greer beat me in our first round match, but I've managed to forgive him," she slyly recounted.

Bauer represented Indiana University in the game while Mackebee represented Duke University.

Mackebee went on to be a semifinalist in the 2012 College Championship, winning a prize of $10,000.

"When we both found ourselves working at attorneys in Washington DC several years after our tournament aired, we naturally put a trivia team together," Bauer continued.

"Eventually, we went on our first date over six years after Jeopardy! first brought us together, and we're still happily together today. And, of course, we still watch Jeopardy! together every chance we get!"

The sharp-witted couple married in 2021 on the beach in Longboat Key, Your Observer reported.

This comes as the US Sun revealed clues about who will permanently host Jeopardy! as Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik battle to replace Alex Trebek.

While both hosts have had their share of on-screen blunders, fans have made it very clear which host they prefer.
