Quick Recap & Final Jeopardy – December 24, 2015


Wondering why Alex Trebek has a cane or why Alex Trebek is doing the interviews from his lectern?

I learned earlier this week that Markus went to high school in the town 20 minutes away from me! Our schools played in Reach For The Top many times; we don’t need to go into details, but I’d say Markus wins because he got onto Jeopardy! first.

Remember that Reach launched its Reach for the Top Foundation earlier this year!

Okay, on with the show!

Today’s contestants:

Christina Pulawski, a fundraising professional & consultant from Chicago, IL
Markus Kolic, a developer & stay-at-home dad from Dighton, MA
Chandreyi Ghosh, a housewife from Atlanta, GA (1-day total: $34,401)

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Markus $15,300
Chandreyi $7,000
Christina $1,400

Final Jeopardy! category: AMERICAN BUSINESSMEN

Final Jeopardy! clue: Ironically, this man worth tens of millions when he died in 1990 said his parents named him with a socialist logo in mind

Had it not been for Final Jeopardy in this game in 2007, I still don’t think I would have known of this response! The name kind of sticks with you, though, once you remember it!
