Jeopardy! recap for Fri., Dec. 22 – Donna was well behind champ Johnny when she found DD2, then showed the world how this game should be played.
Without hesitation, Donna bet her entire $9,800 and was correct to take the lead, kept moving forward and picked DD3 with $22,800. She boldly wagered $11,400 and was right again, but couldn’t quite get a runaway with $32,600 vs. $17,400 for Johnny and $5,400 for Zach.
DD1 – THE DECADE IN THE 20TH CENTURY – For bathing beauties, bikinis are introduced (Johnny won $2,000)
DD2 – CHARGING BULL – This city has a sharp right turn from Mercaderes street onto Estafeta; easy for a man, less for a running bull (Donna won $9,800)
DD3 – FEARLESS GIRL – A young woman from Chile moves to Calif. during the Gold Rush in “Daughter of Fortune” by this author (Donna won $11,400)
FJ – RECORD LABELS – This label, home to U2 and Bob Marley, was created, fittingly, in Jamaica with an investment of 1,000 pounds sterling
Donna was the only player correct on FJ and made another strong wager of $13,000 to win with $45,600.
Triple Stumper of the day: Apparently the players have never heard of a frantic person referred to as having their hair on fire.
One more thing: The category about TV shows that went from black-and-white to color included The Andy Griffith Show, which is the point that many fans of the show agree it started to go sharply downhill.
Correct Qs: DD1 – What is the 1940s? DD2 – What is Pamplona? DD3 – Who is Isabel Allende? FJ – What is Island?
