UPDATE: Gard won again in the shows broadcasts on Monday and Tuesday. That makes him a three-day champion. His total winnings so far: $69,900.
A Jamaica Plain man won big on the quiz show "Jeopardy!" in an episode broadcast on Friday.
David Gard describes himself as a "retail horticulturist" eager to make some green on the popular TV show.
Gard beat a three-day champion and won nearly $30,000.
He joins a line of other JP Jeopardy contestants, including Helen Hoffstetter, who competed last year.
The show airs at 7:30 p.m. on weekdays on WBZ-TV, which is channels 4 or 804 on Comcast cable in JP. The next show is Monday. Tune in and see how our neighborhood's champion does.
