This game saw Mandela going way-too-often to top-row clues; meanwhile Vinny ran O’SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS (about journeyman QB J. T. O’Sullivan) and went 3/4 in SUSPENDED! & HITTING FOR THE CYCLE; Mandela went 3/4 in 5 OR MORE OLYMPIC GOLDS. Evan put up a good fight, but an early missed True Daily Double (and issues finding buzzer timing) sunk his chances.

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Vinny 23,500 (24 right, 1 wrong)
Mandela 11,000 (12 right, 1 wrong)
Evan 4,000 (6 right, 1 wrong)
