LEONIA, N.J. — Jamie Sclafane of Leonia has rarely gone a day without consuming at least one episode of beloved 90's sitcom "Seinfeld" since she was 15 years old.

Even Hulu knows that, which is why the network featured Sclafane and her husband, David Sclafane, in its new documentary, "They’re Real & They’re Spectacular: 'Seinfeld' Super Fans & the Summer of George."

"I would say I've watched each episode at least 100 times," the 37-year mother old told Daily Voice. "My husband and I listen to it as background noise, we watch it before bed — we're obsessed."

The documentary profiles several contestants competing in a 'Seinfeld' trivia tournament in New York City, including the Sclafane's, who would go on to win the tournament.

"It was an amazing experience," said Sclafane, who has been competing in Seinfeld trivia contests since 2009. "We were honored to be part of it."

Sclafane first tuned into Seinfeld during the season 5 episode "The Mango."

"I just remember a scene with Kramer trying to return fruit and he was going on and on about the quality of fruit in the supermarket," she said. "I thought it was hysterical."

The show resonated with her because it was relatable.

"There would always be some ridiculous thing that would happen to these people and I can relate to that in my own life," said Sclafane, an adjunct professor at William Paterson.

The Sclafane's home has a large display case full of "Seinfeld" memorabilia won at trivia contests over the years.

Sclafane said she is raising her three children to be "Seinfeld" watchers, and still catches herself repeating famous lines from the show.

"I use 'Seinfeld' talk in conversation everyday," Sclafane said. "Something will happen and it will make me think of a line from the show and I will just say it."
