Deanna Bolio (Jeopardy) Biography

Deanna Bolio is the third contestant for the semi-final of group 3 in the Champions Wildcard Jeopardy. Jeopardy is giving a second chance to all its old winners because of the WGA strike that ran around for more than five months and affected the writing production of many series or TV shows.
