Local trivia maven wins $100K...again

A game show contestant from Pleasantville won big on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" last week, which comes on the heels of another major trivia victory.

Linda Hendricks, a self-described trivia maven, got all the way to the $100,000 question, which concerned the slang term used for a famous British meal.

"I thought I knew the answer, and it turns out I didn't, so the second answer I actually guessed," she recalls.

Not knowing the answer to the $250,000 question, Hendricks decided to walk away with $100,000.

It wasn't the first time Hendricks got lucky in trivia. Two years ago, she won $100,000 on the show "Million Dollar Password."
