Growing up in Sioux Falls and attending high school with Joel Stjernholm, it is not any surprise to me that the highly intelligent Stjernholm would be a contestant on Jeopardy.

Joel Stjernholm

The show has already been taped but will air as a new Jeopardy show this week.

You can watch the Sioux Falls native this Wednesday, November 26th at 3pm on KSFY in the Sioux Falls and Mitchell area.

Joel currently resides in Minneapolis, MN.
