Jeopardy! recap for Fri., Nov. 24 – Marcus had a solid lead most of the way, but champ Jesse found DD3 with a great opportunity to take a small lead with a double-up of his $6,600.

Marcus and Jennifer were correct on FJ, with Marcus adding $5,801 to win with $20,401. Jesse made a wagering error by betting $4,800, when a wager of less than $1,000 would have protected him from a double-up by Jennifer and given him the win if Marcus missed.
