Her Relationship With Troy Began Started Online

As mentioned in New York Times, by early 2009, Genevieve had joined an invitation for an only online fan site. She called it like-minded addicts.

One of those addicts, Troy, noticed her and treasured her knowledge for its own sake. He tried to recruit her to an even more dorky site for Jeopardy fans. 

She accepted it as she was going to practice before going on the show. And, in July, they played their first online game which she won. Soon after, they started exchanging messages and often communicated when playing. 

Both had no intentions of dating or falling in love since the site attracted older people. Meyer even thought that she was 55 years old. But, as they continued exchanging messages and texting for many hours, they became part of each other's lives.

Troy developed special feelings for her, but she was in a relationship then. By that time, she was already a contestant on Jeopardy, and it was the first time Troy saw her. 

She did not make it to the end but left a deep impression on Troy. She had already broken up from her previous relationship because of her growing interest in Troy. 

She had seen Troy only in some blurred online images, and they felt they needed to meet each other. Thus, Troy traveled to Boston, and they spent the weekend walking around hand in hand. Within the first 24 hours, they wanted to be together. 

After a month, he moved to Boston, and they started to live together.

Genevieve Was A Contestant In 2009

Genevieve joined Jeopardy as a child. She applied to take part in Junior Jeopardy at the young age of 12. However, she did not succeed at that time.

She had not given up on joining the contest. In 2009, when she was 25 years old, she took part once again. But, she lost after being ahead twice and correctly answering a Daily Double.

However, it was not a loss for her, but rather a win as she had won her now-husband Meyer through this show. It was the first time where Troy had seen her face and became mesmerized by her.
