Final Results
Today:
Jill 1600 – 1600 = 0
Kaberi 8800 – 0 = 8800
Jason 20800 – 0 = 20800

2-Day Totals:
Jason 22601 + 20800 = 43401 ($100,000)
Kaberi 4600 + 8800 = 13400 ($50,000)

After McGovern’s death in 2012, TIME republished some photographs of McGovern on the 1972 campaign trail.

Interestingly, the “Dakota Queen” was actually named for McGovern’s wife Eleanor, whom he married in 1943 (they stayed married 64 years until her 2007 death).

Congratulations to Jason! The next #JeopardyLivePanel episode will have all three player’s thoughts on this awesome final!
