Today’s players: Alysha Rooks and Rex Marzke will do battle against Ryan Pensyl? Will Ryan win his third? He won $32,000 over his first two games!

Alysha had “Rooks” on her contestant podium!

J! round categories:
THE END OF THE BOOK
____ & ____
WEBSITES
THE ART OF RELIGION
NEW YORK IN THE MOVIES
I’LL BE “BACK”

At the end of the 15th clue and the first break, the scores were:

Rex $3,600
Rooks $1,600
Ryan $1,200

It seemed to me that Rooks was using a lot of body movement to ring in!

Meanwhile, it took a long while before we saw the Daily Double! In fact, it was the final clue of the round — the bottom of WEBSITES — that had it!

Rooks played it, with scores at:

Rooks $5,200
Rex $4,000
Ryan $2,600

Rooks bet $2,000. Her clue: This literature-based website was named for a title scrivener. She said Scriven and fell to $3,200 for the end of the round!

DJ! round categories:
GO FOURTH BY NAME
PARKS
THE WALLABY
POP CULTURE RELATIVES?
ANCIENT SCIENCE
THE AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY PAGE 1,001

When calling the dictionary category the first time, Rooks pointed out “The writers were bored”. I got a chuckle out of that. I like her! Apparently Page 1001 has words starting with LE.

PARKS $1600 had the first Daily Double of the round, on the round’s 24th clue! Rooks played this one, too, with scores at:

Rex $10,400
Ryan $9,400
Rooks $8,400

Rooks bet $2,000. Her clue: It took workers months in 1880 to transport this 69-foot shaft from a Staten Island dock to Central Park. Her correct response of “the Obelisk” put her at $10,400!

We didn’t get to the final Daily Double — it was either at $800 or $1200! Scores going into Final:

Rex $10,800
Rooks $10,400
Ryan $7,400

FJ! category: POETRY

FJ! clue: The narrator mistakes the presence of this title creature for the wind & later calls it prophet

Ryan 7400 – 7400 = 0
Rooks 10400 + 8012 = 18412
Rex 10800 – 13 = 10787

So, Alysha Rooks is the new Jeopardy! champion, and she’ll be back to defend tomorrow!
