A Cumberland County woman who recently appeared on the game show “Jeopardy” spoke out about her experience.

Lara Brenckle Malmont was on the television program in May, finishing in second place. She spoke to residents at the Susquehanna View apartments in Camp Hill about her appearance — and how she was able to go into the game with a calm mindset.

“I was not nervous,” Malmont said. “It was interesting. I felt like I just prepared enough, that whatever they were going to throw at me, I was ready.”

The contestant Malmont lost to, Julia Collins, eventually went on to have the second-longest winning streak in “Jeopardy” history.
