From that one blurry shot I will throw in my predictions of Julia Mancuso, Jared Padalecki, and Terry Gross. The Terry definitely looks female to me, so I think it's not Terry Crews.

Looks to be a Caucasian next to the Terry podium from what I could glean. Don't know if J! would want a host of a competing syndicated show appearing on their celeb week(Pat Sajak has been on Celeb J!, but WOF almost never airs against J! if at all)

Good eyes, you're right it's a Jared for the 2nd spot.

Jared Leto
Jared Padalecki
Wish it was Jared Harris
Jared Allen
Jared S. Gilmore

You're missing the most important Jared, Mr. Fogle:

Each time I watch it and depending on how fast I click pause I see different things at the :09 mark. For Terry it looks like white bare arms, so it could be a woman.

I think we've been fooled as that would be Terry O'Shea. Therefore the Jared is Hall and the Julia is you-know-who from the TOC semis. The one time we want a spoiler from a video, J! won't give us one. Hilarious.

I hadn't really been paying attention to this thread and hadn't watched the video, but I wondered why there was so much speculation going on. Usually the fine eyes around here know exactly who is in what shot.

So, maybe this will help:
Celebrity_Jeopardy!_Teaser (02).jpg
Celebrity_Jeopardy!_Teaser (02).jpg (28.52 KiB) Viewed 2015 times
There were exactly seven frames where the players were visible, but not much better than this.

Edit: Yup. It's a shot from November 17th, 2014. ToC semi-final game 1.

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

With the Celeb week now known to be from 5/11-5/15, I suspect the COllege tourney will be from 4/27-5/8. Doing it 5/18-5/29 puts it during Memorial Day time and largely out of Sweeps.

Thanks, Megan. They have a loose definition of "celebrity."

At the Daytime Emmys last year, Harry Friedman said, "Kathy, consider yourself invited!" to Kathy Griffin, saying she should be on Celebrity Jeopardy! Everyone knows she likes to be on TV as much as possible. She once did Rock and Roll Jeopardy!, if anyone remembers. I wonder if she'll be one of the contestants.

I'm glad they have such high standards in picking people who will be on the show.

Kevin O'Leary will be fun to watch. We'll see if he's as smart as he thinks he is on Shark Tank!

Never heard of the other celebrities so far, other than astronaut Mark Kelly.

Ginger Zee is the meteorologist for Good Morning America. She grew up here in the Grand Rapids area, and got married north of here in Michigan last summer.

Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. He is the reigning NFL MVP and the spokesman for State Farm Insurance. Zachary Quinto is an actor who, among other roles, played the villain Sylar on Heroes and Spock in the most recent set of Star Trek movies.
Sprinkles are for winners.
