Jeopardy Encore Presentation Recap – August 11, 2016


This game originally aired on November 19, 2015.

Today’s contestants:

Kerry Greene, a volunteer CASA guardian ad litem from Manchester, NH
Alex Jacob, a currency trader from Chicago, IL
Matt Jackson, a paralegal from Washington, DC

Kaya Chua was in the audience for the semifinals and finals; she provided her thoughts back in November to The Jeopardy! Fan.

This is Day 1 of a two-day total point affair: today’s scores are added to tomorrow’s to come up with the tournament champion.

Meanwhile, knowing Alex Jacob’s strategy, we all knew it was going to happen: he was going to go big on the Daily Doubles. But it still doesn’t make things any less dramatic when it actually does happen. Alex put himself into an absolutely commanding position here with a big score! But Matt and Kerry are no slouches; anything could still happen in Game 2 of the final!

      My advice to you, Jim, would be to contact WNEM to express your opinion.

      (I can certainly understand, though, why a television station would elect to show a preseason football game over a Jeopardy! rerun. This is why the show does run six weeks of encore presentations over the summer, because affiliates often pre-empt the show for various reasons — preseason football and the Olympics among the most common ones).
