Jeopardy! champ Mira Hayward reveals she was on another classic program years before appearing on game show

JEOPARDY!’s Mira Hayward has revealed she was once on a classic PBS program years before winning on the game show. 

While recently speaking to host Ken Jennings, 48, Mira revealed she appeared on the American version of Antiques Roadshow in 2004.

The Antiques Roadshow account then shared snapshots from when Mira was a child star and tweeted: “We remember you fondly too!”

The Jeopardy! contestant reshared the post and jokingly added: “I love you!

“Although my family has never spotted roasting me for ‘Thank. You. For. Telling. Me. About. The. Shoe!”) 

Simeon Lipman, the appraiser on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, also shared throwback photos of his co-star on Instagram and congratulated her on her game show victory.

In a behind-the-scenes photo, the two appeared to be laughing together. 

Simeon captioned the heartwarming post: “Back in 2004, Mira Hayward brought her grandmother’s shoe (which had been signed by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig in 1927) to Roadshow Antiques.

“I was fortunate enough to appraise it and was very impressed with her intelligence and poise.

He concluded: “Nearly 20 years later, she was a contestant on Jeopardy and mentioned her appearance on Roadshow during her interview!”


On Friday’s episode, Mary came from behind as she pulled through on her second straight win.

While down in third place and with $12,400, the female player needed to score major points on The Final Jeopardy! question.

On the subject of European History, Ken read the clue: “Until 1806, some German nobles included among their honors the title of ‘Elector’ for their role in selecting this personage.”

Because Mira was the only one with the correct response, she scored $22,400 and earned a two-day total of $37,000.

Fans also recognized the accomplishment and cheered the champion as the “first multi-day female champion of the season.”

Followers claimed Mira is the first “multi-day female champion since” Season 38 champion Emily Fiasco.


During Thursday’s installment, the ABC star competed against returning champion Dan Wohl and competitor Scott Perry.

Ken asked: “In 1904, wearing a harness, actress Nina Boucicault became the first to play this character onstage.”

Mira Hayward was the only contestant with the correct answer as she said: “Who is Peter Pan?”


Meanwhile, Ken will be hosting the new Jeopardy! Masters spinoff, scheduled to air during the spring in primetime.

Ken and his co-host Mayim Bialik, 47, became the permanent replacements for the late longtime host, Alex Trebek.

After the upcoming High School Reunion tournament and 2023 Tournament of Champions, Mayim will continue to host the regular ABC show, while Ken might be off until next season.
