Jeopardy!, a popular quiz show, will have some local flair today (Thursday).

Suzanne Goldlust, a marketing manager from Reston, will compete on the show tonight. The show — which is produced by Sony Pictures Television — is in its 29th season of syndication.

Goldlust said she has enjoyed watching Jeopardy for years and enjoys trivia.

“I have a lot of trivia in my head and was always able to call out a lot of the answers – well, questions – at home,” she said.

Goldlust first tried out in 2013 but did not make it beyond the audition stage.

“I was super nervous beforehand, just trying not to get my hopes up too high or build up expectations. I only told a few friends and family members that I would be playing. Since my taping, I’ve been nervous about accidentally spilling the beans! But I have literally told no one—not even my sister or my kids! And of course I’m nervous about looking like a dork on national TV,” Goldlust told FFXnow.

She says she’s excited for her friends and family to see how she did on the popular quiz show.

The episode featuring Goldlust airs tonight on WJLA (ABC).
