Quick Recap – November 12, 2015


Since starting #JeopardyLivePanel, I’ve really found that the Tournament of Champions has quickly become my favourite two weeks of the year! I think it’s because we’ve gotten to know these champions much better than some of the other regular contestants, and it makes it that much more exciting to cheer for everybody!

Today’s contestants:
Kerry Greene
Andrew Haringer
Elliot Yates

Some thoughts:

  • There were quite a few negs early on from Andrew and Elliot!
  • In his interview, Elliot got recognized as “a famous person”
  • I felt transfixed by how close the game was in Double Jeopardy!; Elliot seemed like a fish out of water on the buzzer; Kerry and Andrew were just on another level!
  • I’m really glad that Jerie Shaw caught this great moment from the match and shared it on Twitter:

Scores going into Final Jeopardy!:

Kerry 18000
Andrew 17200
Elliot 3600

Final Jeopardy! category: ARTISTS’ SUBJECTS

Final Jeopardy! clue: The woman seen here who was born in North Carolina & died in England in 1881, was the subject of this painting

Elliot 3600 + 3600 = 7200
