‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant Stuns Fans After Eerie Prediction Comes True

A recent victorious Jeopardy! contestant has freaked out fans of the long-running game show after she proved she predicted her exact winning amount. It was supposed to be just a soothing exercise to calm her nerves before the show, but it turned into so much more. 

Contestant Correctly Predicts Win On ‘Jeopardy!’ Down To The Winning Amount

Jeopardy! fans have come to expect quite a lot from the show’s champions, but clairvoyance wasn’t on the list…until now that is. Katie Sekelsky, the most recent multi-win champion who works as a graphic designer in Kent, Ohio, made an amazing reveal on Twitter. She shared an image of a doodle she’d drawn the night before she taped the show alongside a still of herself from the game show. 

She tweeted, “The night before my first @Jeopardy taping, I was alone in the hotel, trying to calm down and ‘visualizing’ a win. I sketched myself at a podium, with a winning-type dollar amount. And that winning-type dollar amount was $19,201. This is real.” Why is that amount so significant? Well, that just happens to be the actual number Sekelsky earned to walk away as the champion. 

Weirdly enough, she’d totally forgotten that she’d drawn that amount the night before her first taping. The doodle she’d made to help ease her nerves was the last thing on her mind, she insisted. “This was not on my mind at all while wagering. I was just betting what I needed to in case Erin bet everything and got it right,” she wrote in a reply to her original tweet. 

She also listed a few people who could verify that she’d sent them the doodle long before her winning appearance on Jeopardy! in a display of the concept “trust, but verify.” Her friends would likely be more than willing to back up Sekelsky’s claims. She credited her eerily accurate prediction to studying wager strategies for over a year, a skill that came in very handy. 

Unfortunately, Sekelsky’s powers of clairvoyance didn’t help her out during Wednesday’s Final Jeopardy segment. She incorrectly guessed the Pixar-themed clue was Osmosis Jones instead of the correct answer, Buzz Lightyear. That ended her winning streak, but something tells us fans of the hit trivia game show will be thinking of her for a very long time. 

Intense Fans Make For Interesting Takes

Considering the great passion fans have shown in the past towards contestants, it’s not surprising that Sekelsky went to extreme lengths to prove she really did predict her winning amount. Fans of the show are notorious for letting contestants and guest hosts alike know exactly what they think of them. Twitter users were furious with one contestant after he appeared visibly downcast after another contestant pulled off an impressive win.

Yet another contestant divided fans with some loving the quirky, expressive faces she made during her time on the show while others absolutely couldn’t stand her. More recently, fans have expressed largely negative reactions to current guest host anchor Savannah Guthrie. With a fan base as intense as this one, there’s very little they don’t feel strongly about.

Ronnie Coleman Now: Here’s What The Former Mr. Olympia Winner Is Doing In 2021

Considered one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time, Ronnie Coleman won his first professional title back in 1995. He went on to become an eight-time Mr. Olympia winner, a record he holds for most wins alongside fellow champ Lee Haney. But where is Ronnie Coleman now? Is there any truth to the rumors that he can no longer walk? Here’s a look at the life of retired pro bodybuilder Ronnie Coleman in 2021.

Coleman admits that when he first started lifting weights, he didn’t intend for it to become a career. “I just worked out and competed because I was given a free membership to the gym,” the former pro said in a 2019 interview with Bodybuilding.com “It was just a way for me to save money on gym memberships. Because all of my life I have considered weightlifting just a hobby. Even when I got into bodybuilding it was still a hobby, but just on a different level, or in a different form.”

But once Coleman starting winning competitions, he realized it might be his destiny to go pro. In 1995, he won the Canada Pro Cup — his first competition as a professional. He won the title again in 1996, and took home the IFBB Grand Prix Russia title the following year. In 1998, Coleman won his first Mr. Olympia title, which is considered the most prestigious bodybuilding award in the world. He went on to win the title seven more times in a row, for a total of eight consecutive victories, before he was finally defeated by Jay Cutler in 2006.

Ronnie Coleman’s Body Slowly Started To Break Down Over The Years

Of course, all that heavy lifting began taking a toll on Coleman’s body over the years. The champ said he got used to living in pain and continued working out despite suffering serious injuries. Coleman even admits he completely ignored one of his first major injuries, a herniated disc. “There was a loud crunching sound,” he explained on The Joe Rogan Experience in 2020. “I lost a little strength. I heard it, but the athlete in you is like, ‘Let’s go on.’”

While Coleman was able to minimize his ailments at first, there eventually came a time when he could no longer ignore the fact that his body was breaking down.

“The first time you herniate a disc it’s as if you stack a bunch of cans on top of each other and you snap one out,” he told Joe Rogan. “Well after a while the other ones are going to start falling out of place, too.”

Doctors Warned Coleman That He Could Become Paralyzed

Since retiring from pro bodybuilding in 2007, Coleman has had more than a dozen major procedures to correct his issues — including two hip replacements and 10 back surgeries. , he revealed that he’d spent over $2 million on surgeries that had done more harm than good — and was afraid he might never be able to walk again.

“I’ve had too much damage done to my body from all these surgeries,” he admitted. “A lot of it has to do with the way the surgeon performed the surgery. And the surgeon that I’ve had the last three surgeries has been really bad and caused a lot of damage to my body so I don’t know if I’ll be able to walk, but I’m gonna give it my best shot. But I think if that surgeon had to perform these surgeries right, then I would have been walking a long, long time ago.”

What Is Ronnie Coleman Doing Now In 2021?

Luckily, Coleman was not left paralyzed by his surgical procedures. He continues to work out and shares tons of weightlifting content with his 1.1 million YouTube subscribers and 4 million Instagram followers.

Nevertheless, the former Mr. Olympia champ is still paying the price for years of 800 lb. squats and deadlifts. In his 2020 Joe Rogan interview, he admitted that he can only walk a short distance without help. “I can walk, maybe from here to that wall unassisted but after being up for so long, my legs get real weak,” he said.

And while the former pro is still huge, you can tell his body has atrophied and is not as strong as it used to be.

Still, Coleman told Rogan he’s grateful that his condition isn’t worse. The heavyweight also credited stem cell therapy treatments with helping him reduce his pain significantly.

“Every time I get one it gets better and better, so I just gotta keep getting it. I’ve got another one in May. Every time I get one, I feel improvements. I’ve had two so far,” Coleman said of the treatments. “The pain is gone now. I’ve only got a little bit now, not a lot at all. So it’s getting better.”
