Quick Recap – September 24, 2015


We’re just a few hours now from our Final Panel of the 2015 #JeopardyLivePanel #TournamentOfPanelists!
Our final Panel has: The OG, The Jeopardy! Villain, The Kids Week Alum, The Establishment, The Quest-er, The KJL, The Dark Lord, and The Teacher!

Today’s contestants:

Amanda Fieiras, a registered nurse from Chicago, IL
Kyle Baum, an MBA candidate from Wildwoold, MO
Dylan Parson, a student from Slippery Rock, PA (2-day champ, $24,599)

Amanda spoke of doing the “polar plunge” in Madison, WI — Alex managed to get Amanda to admit that she was “young and dumb” when it happened!

Scores going into Final Jeopardy!:
Amanda $15,200
Dylan $13,200
Kyle $1,300

Final Jeopardy! category: FOREIGN PHRASES

Final Jeopardy! clue: This French phrase refers to part of the Order of the Holy Ghost; its knights became known for serving superb dinners

Kyle 1300 – 1300 = 0
Dylan 13200 – 8000 = 5200
Amanda 15200 – 11201 = 3999

Only one minor quibble on the betting from me. Dylan should have bet $4,000!; Congrats to Dylan for winning his third, though!

I didn’t get this Final – no complaints about it. Great question in my opinion, and I learned something today!
