Jeopardy! recap for Thur., Jun. 14 – Today’s contestants are:
– Katherine, a verbal identity consultant from New York, who understands how words impact the corporate big picture;
– Adam, a senior sales manager from Colorado, who was a five-year spiteful vegetarian; and
– Diana, a legal records assistant from Massachusetts, who will be a sci-fi convention chair. Diana is a one-day champ with winnings of $24,001.
Pure domination by Diana, who hit all three DDs and was correct every time on her way to a runaway into FJ with $29,600 vs. $10,800 for Katherine and $8,600 for Adam.
DD1 – PEOPLE OF THE WORLD – Afrikaners were once called by this name meaning “farmer” (Diana won $1,200)

FJ – CONSTELLATIONS – This zodiac constellation includes 2 lines (or strings) that terminate in a star called Alrescha, the knot
Everyone missed FJ and Diana pulled a Clavin, betting $9,000, which could have gotten her defeated had Katherine made a big bet and been correct. Diana held on with $20,600 for a two-day total of $44,601.
