Quick Recap – October 12, 2015


Welcome to another week of recaps! I’ve put my stats-man hat on and noticed that Matt had 319 correct responses in his first 11 games, and it’s going to inspire a new feature I’ll be working on!

Today’s contestants:

Julia Novakovics, an archivist from Pittsburgh, PA
Victor Quillen, a career counsellor from Kingsport, TN
Matt Jackson, a paralegal from Washington, DC(11-day champ, $339,411)

Matt turned up the heat today, nailing $10,000 on a late Daily Double! No, I haven’t charted the game yet to add to Matt’s total of 319!

Scores going into Final Jeopardy!:
Matt $39,600
Victor $12,000
Julia $7,000

Final Jeopardy! category: HISTORICAL ARTIFACTS

Final Jeopardy! clue: Its restitchings over the centuries helped perpetuate the story of King Harold II being struck in the eye with an arrow

Julia 7000 + 3002 = 10002
Victor 12000 + 2001 = 14001
Matt 39600 + 11400 = 51000 (12-day champion, $390,411)
