If you’re like me and you watch ‘Jeopardy!’ religiously, then you might’ve noticed a lady by the name of Jackie Fuchs absolutely tearing it up for days on end. However, during her first appearance on the show while host Alex Trebek was making the rounds with each contestant, she revealed quite the interesting little tidbit about herself. It turns out that she played bass for The Runaways!
