Glendora, Donut Man Lands in Jeopardy Question

Just how famous is Glendora's Donut Man? How about a mention on Jeopardy?

Glendora and The Donut Man enjoyed a little love from Alex Trebek and company when the city and the famed doughnut shop were featured on a $1,000 question on Jeopardy Monday night.

The question:

Sometimes I get my kicks driving to Glendora to visit the acclaimed Donut Man on this route.

Check out the video to watch Glendora's brief Jeopardy spotlight and to find out the answer.

But Glendorans can can feel mighty proud, and maybe a little smarter, knowing the answer to this one.

Today, a $1,000 question on "Jeopardy" for Donut Man...tomorrow, the million dollar question on "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire!" Time to start a petition! :) Meanwhile, I'll have that strawberry filled masterpiece!

Wow GtownGirl! Didn't your mother ever teach you that if you do not have anything nice to say, then do not say anything at all? You must have a ton of class. I am really not surprised that you hide behind a name such as GtownGirl rather than post something so negative under your real name.

I love the Donut man! Man! If the donuts from the donut man suck so bad, People must really like sucky donuts. I believe GtownGirl is expressing the fact that they are juicy and flavorful

I love the Donut Man! Someone brought a box to us yesterday and they were delish. Every once in a while we'll make a Donut Man run for a treat, we're lucky to be right down the street at Art 2 Ink! Kelli and Sherrill, I love your comments and I agree completely. Not sure why people feel the need to post negative comments?

What is this "Donut Man" you all speak of? To me, it will always be Foster's.

Next to Kings Gym on Route 66...across from Peppertree. THE donut place in Glendora. Always busy and been there for decades.

Donut Man is quite literally the most famous donut shop in SoCal. I can't think of another donut shop in LA County and in the other nearby counties that has the same fame and notoriety. They may not be the tastiest donuts to everyone, but the shop itself is undoubtedly _VERY_ famous.

I grew up on the donuts from this shop. I sure do miss them. Hope they stay around.

About a year ago on HGTV they had a show that paid homage to the top 20 iconic best places to eat in So. Calif., not in any particular category, re breakfast, lunch, desserts, etc. & the Donut Man was on this list. I've never been there.
