Julio Trujillo made his first appearance on this show more than 7 years ago on Episode 42 as part of pub quiz juggernaut team The Slumpbusters. Since then, he’s gone on to be a runner-up on Jeopardy! and a winner of the ABC game show The Chase, while still kicking ass at pub quiz all over the Denver area. He’s taken all that knowledge, along with his substantial winnings from The Chase, and bet on himself with his new entrepreneurial venture Colorado Trivia League.
We talk about all of that – a history of pub quizzing, what it was like filming The Chase against Jeopardy! legend Brad Rutter, how much he owed in taxes from his winnings, entrepreneurship – and a ton more in this week’s breezy, entertaining chat. We talk about the architecture of a good trivia question, and he breaks down a recent round from Colorado Trivia League. We talk about the biggest challenge of entrepreneurship. We talk about his ambitions as a business owner. It’s many of my favorite things crammed into one episode, and I know you’ll love it because Julio is a great guy.
