Jeopardy! recap for Wed., Jul. 4 – Here are today’s contestants:
– Kate, a mom from Indiana, who has fun home schooling;
– Liz, an assistant analyst from Virginia, is the designated Thanksgiving pie-maker; and
– Suzanne, a museum education manager from New York, who rafted in the Grand Canyon. Suzanne is a two-day champ with winnings of $34,800.
Ultra-competitive contest that saw the players in a three-way tie at the first commercial break, and with only $1,400 separating them at the end of DJ. The scores heading into FJ were Suzanne at $15,800 and Liz tied with Kate at $14,400.
DD1 – 5, 5 – It was established in 1790 as the Revenue Marine Service (Kate won $1,000)
DD2 – PUB MED – Showing the nifty effects of insulin in 1922, Banting & Best published “The Internal Secretion of” this organ (Suzanne won $3,000)
DD3 – GREAT BRITS – This British philosopher & mathematician was the logical choice to win the 1950 Nobel Prize for Literature (Liz lost $2,000)
FJ – CLASSIC ROCK – 25 years after these 3 men played a huge festival, they went back to play again & ended the set with a tune about the 1st show
Everyone was correct on FJ, with Suzanne adding $13,001 to win with $28,801 for a three-day total of $63,601.
For some reason, Kate held back $50 from her FJ wager, which cost her second money when Liz doubled up (Kate had the most money at the end of round one and would have won a tie for second). If Kate wanted to bet less than everything, she should have left herself at least $2,800 in order to win if everybody missed.
Triple Stumper of the day: The players earned $0 when asked to provide the number that completes the title of Syfy’s anthology series “Channel Zero”.
DD1 – What is the Coast Guard?
DD2 – What is the pancreas?
DD3 – Who was Bertrand Russell?
