Jeopardy! recap for Wed., Oct. 3 – Please welcome today’s contestants:
– Susan, a retired pathologist from Delaware, had her forehead licked by a jaguar;
– Maggie, a student from Massachusetts, grew up in a crowded house; and
– Doug, a classical singer from Massachusetts, is a counter-tenor, who have few roles for a sensitive reason. Doug is a two-day champ with winnings of $21,999.
Doug played by far his most impressive game to date, doubling up on DD1 and running The Cold War to open DJ. Doug was never challenged after that, leading into FJ with $25,800 vs. $6,200 for Susan and $1,200 for Maggie, who pulled out of the red in the closing stages.
DD1 – COBRA KAI – Dendroaspis, these deadly African members of the cobra family, come in green and black (Doug won $5,200 on a true DD.)
DD2 – ENTERTAINMENT RITUALS – Penned in 1880, this July 4th symphony staple touts a Russian victory, not an American one (Doug won $2,000)
DD3 – AUTHORS’ FICTIONAL PLACES – In the South, Maycomb and Finch’s Landing (Maggie won $2,000)
FJ – CITIES IN HISTORY – The Cathedral of St. Pierre was the center of the Calvinist Reformation in this lakeside city
Doug was correct on FJ to break this week’s losing streak that had Alex upset at the opening of the show. Doug picked up $5,000 to win with $30,800 and a three-day total of $52,799.
Triple Stumpers of the day: No one knew an artificial bird used as a lure by hunters is a decoy, or the “b” term for different products sold as a package deal is “bundling”.
