The first Cabinet-level government official to appear on Jeopardy came in second place to an actor. Secretary Margaret Spellings beat out CSI:NY actor Hill Harper to place second after This Is Spinal Tap actor Michael McKean. It is unclear whether she is going to get a home version of the game (or if Alex Trebek is going to be audited). So Lenny from LaVerne and Shirley beat a Cabinet secretary. I think Fox is going to have a special where Squiggy fights his weight in ferrets to the death.

Spellings says she studied hard and consulted with former contestants in preparation of the show. She noted McKean had an edge having been a contestant before and thinks she made a pretty good showing of herself (she definitely did better than her boss would've, to be sure).
