The answer is: Jeopardy. The question? What television game show has Lisa taken the test for twice (and still hopes to make it on)? If her goal to get on a game show doesn’t pan out, Lisa has other ideas for fun. She loves reality shows, traveling and trying new things (such as sky diving), and heading to Cleveland Browns or Indians games. Lisa and her daughter live in Boardman, Ohio.
