Hoquiam Featured on Jeopardy!

March 20, 2013

Tuesday night on Jeopardy!, a contestant came across a question that has been a local topic of discussion for years.

Lauren Girard of Los Angeles was on the show and came across the Daily Double in a category named “Music Legends: Born & Died”.

Girard wagered $3000 on the question that read “Born 1967 in Hoquiam, Washington; died 1994 in Seattle.” Anyone local would answer the same as she did, with “Who is Kurt Cobain.”

The question of where Cobain was born has been a topic of discussion since his rise to fame in the late ‘80’s. While Cobain was technically born in Aberdeen at Grays Harbor Community Hospital, he spent his first few months in Hoquiam, just 3 blocks from Myrtle Street.

Girard went on to win the night with $24,400, and will return tonight as the new Jeopardy! champion.
