Jeopardy! recap for Fri., Oct. 5 – Today’s contestants are:
– Adam, a dad/lawyer from Georgia, taught in the Marshall Islands;
– Maureen, a high school teacher from California, met “frugal” Cary Grant after he visited the $2 window at the race track; and
– Sara, a communications manager from North Carolina, whose CPR training paid off. Sara is a one-day champ with winnings of $32,700.
Adam hunted for and found DD3 with more than three times the score of his closest opponent.
But he only bet $100, so his strategy was clearly to keep the last DD from his rivals rather than profit on it himself. It all worked out as Adam couldn’t be caught going into FJ with $25,500 vs. $10,200 for both Sara and Maureen.
