"I have been getting DMs from random men."
A Jeopardy winner has been getting requests to join OnlyFans after being labelled the “hottest ever contestant”.
Anji Nyquist appeared on an episode of the American game show that aired on July 5, 2023, and won $8,800.
Following her appearance, many viewers were in awe of Anji and called her the show’s “hottest ever contestant”.
However, she revealed that “a lot of weirdos” have asked her to join OnlyFans.
During an Instagram Q&A, Anji was asked:
“Would you ever do OnlyFans account?”
Anji replied: “Lol no. And if I did, I don’t think it would be very popular.”
Anji also spoke about the requests on Twitter, writing:
“A lot of weirdos want me on OnlyFans. Not going to do it, but thank you for the confidence boost.”
Recalling the comments, Anji said:
“I mean, that’s not my style, but it was flattering.
“You’re gonna get some nice people, and you’re gonna get some creeps. I have been getting DMs from random men.
“Most of it’s just nice, ‘You’re so beautiful, you’re the hottest contestant ever’, which is so dumb.
“It was flattering, though, because who likes seeing themselves on TV ever? It was not what I was expecting, that’s for sure.”
Despite getting new admirers, Anji has been in a relationship with Trav for several years.
The pair often go to basketball games together and travel.
During her introduction on Jeopardy, fans discovered that the Minnesota native is a huge fan of the NBA’s Timberwolves and has a season ticket.
She has even named her cat Naz Reid, after one of her favourite basketball players on the team.
Her cat regularly watches the games with her on TV. Besides Anji getting attention online, her cat has also gotten more followers.
The Jeopardy contestant has been watching the game show since she was 13 years old.
It has always been entertaining but recently, it became a source of memories for her.
When her father developed dementia, she lived with him and while taking care of him, the two watched the show together.
Her father passed away in December 2021.
As for her career, she previously served as a lease administration analyst at real estate services company JLL.
Before that, she was a mortgage loan processor at Wells Fargo, Military Family Home Loans, and Edward Jones.
Anji graduated from Minnesota State University with a bachelor’s degree in media studies and communication in 2012.
Her Instagram is private and her bio says:
“Jeopardy champ but other than that not much going on around here.”
