Andy here with another recap!
I’ve had some conversations with Jeanie this week and I think I’m safe to say that she’s having the time of her life on this brief trip she’s taking! I hope that she continues to have fun!
I’m watching this off my PVR, so no pictures today!
Emily Gadek and Priscilla Emery are the challengers today for Sarah McNitt! Will she become a superchamp?
ENTERTAINMENT BY THE NUMBERS
“C” THE WORLD
& THE FISH WAS THIS BIG!
“C” THE WORLD $1000, the fifth clue played, had the first Daily Double. Priscilla got to play it after the $800 clue, and the scores were:
Priscilla just chose $800. It’s going to be one of those games… Her clue: This former district of South Central Scotland gave its name to a terrier & a breed of draught horse. Priscilla said “Cairn” and fell to $0.
At the first break, the scores were:
In Emily’s interview, she claims to be 3% Neanderthal. Interesting…
Coming out of the break, all 3 players had luck on the buzzer! A lot of Emily’s gets seemed to be on the high valued clues, as well! Scores after 30:

MUSICAL RAP SHEET
Sarah was the only one without a neg early in Double Jeopardy and thus she had a good lead by the time she found the first Daily Double, under BELLA ITALIA $1200. Scores:
She bet $2,000. Her clue: Just a short drive from Milan, this lake in Lombardy is the deepest lake in Italy at 1,350 feet. Sarah added an extra U into her response and it cost her; her score fell to $7,000.
Twitter seemed to be on Jeopardy!’s side here, surprising considering how the court of public opinion has seemed to be recently on this stuff:
Meanwhile, Priscilla decided that it would be better to start POETIC LICENSE from the top, even though there was a Daily Double remaining to play. Thankfully for me in a video category, it went unplayed. Sadly for Priscilla, Sarah got the final $1200 clue to snatch the lead. Maybe Priscilla would have been better off with that betting clue?
Scores going into Final:
FJ! category: INTERNATIONAL SPORTS
FJ! clue: Twice the host country, this nation of 4 1/2 million leads the world in total Winter Olympic medals
Emily 9400 – 9000 = 400
Priscilla 11000 + 7000 = 18000
Sarah 11400 – 302 = 11098
And Sarah’s run comes to an end…I’m sure we’ll see her in a Tournament of Champions soon, though!
I’ll be back tomorrow!
