Sports Jeopardy! Recap – January 20, 2016


Remember, you can watch this and other Sports Jeopardy episodes at!

Will Vinny win #13 this week?

This week’s contestants:

Matt Weimar, a warehouse overseer from Orland Park, IL
Brit Johnson, a high school teacher from Yorba Linda, CA
Vinny Varadarajan, an engineering graduate from Fords, NJ (12-day total: $60,000)

Matt got off to a good start, but left a bunch of money on the table on the first Daily Double. Vinny isn’t going to go down by $1,000 bets, folks! Needless to say, Vinny found another gear, and then picked up both Daily Doubles in Double Jeopardy to put the game just out of reach!

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Vinny 20,750
Matt 10,250
Brit 5,500

Final Jeopardy! category: MUHAMMAD ALI

Final Jeopardy! clue: The first fighter to win the World Heavyweight Championship 3 times, Ali beat these 3 opponents to do it
