Jeopardy! recap for Thur., Jan. 18 – Let’s meet today’s contestants:
– Marilyn, a retired legal secretary from Richland, Miss. who teaches the “start, keep going and finish” quilting method;
– Ryan, an account manager from Los Angeles, CA, whose wife is from the South – Austrailia, that is; and
– Lee, a teacher from Raleigh, NC, who hikes the Hadrian’s Wall trail. Lee is a one-day champ with winnings of $22,400.
Ryan and Marilyn both had shots at Lee’s lead in DJ by each hitting a DD, but both missed, resulting in another runaway for Lee at $18,400 vs. $8,000 for both Ryan and Marilyn.
