Jeopardy! History Wiki

Alan Stuart Franken (b. May 21, 1951) competed on Celebrity Jeopardy! for the show's 15th season; He also competed on Power Players Week for the show's 14th, 20th, and 32nd seasons.


  • In the Season 14 game, he had an uncatchable lead of $7,900, but wagered everything he had in Final Jeopardy and answered incorrectly, allowing Pat Schroeder to overtake him. This makes him one of two contestants ever - Buzz Aldrin being the other - to lose a game where he had a runaway.
