Jeopardy! recap for Tue., Dec. 5 – After a dismal first round, champ Kyle went from the red to first place in the opening category of DJ about elements. Kyle extended his lead on DD3 and fell just short of a runaway into FJ with $12,200 vs. $6,200 for Matthias and $5,400 for Kimberly.

DD1 – 9-LETTER WORDS – It’s the branch of astronomy that studies the origin & structure of the universe (Kyle won $1,000)

FJ – 19th CENTURY EUROPE – This 1814-1815 gathering of leaders prompted Beethoven to compose the cantata “The Glorious Moment”

Everyone struck out on FJ and fortunately for Kyle, he didn’t have to bet much, losing only $201 to win with $11,999 for a two-day total of $30,400.

Triple Stumper of the day: No one guessed that a cookbook called “Rice, Noodle, Fish” reflected the food culture of Japan.
