Quick Recap – September 30, 2015

This is going to be a short recap; my baseball team is within outs of clinching a division championship for the first time since I was 10 years old.

Today’s contestants:

Samantha Budesa, a billing co-ordinator from Cookeville, TN
Dennis Lloyd, a publisher from Madison, WI
Matt Jackson, a paralegal from Washington, DC(3-day champ, $81,200)

Dennis had his best shot early on, but momentum switched Matt’s way after Dennis zeroed his score on a J! round Daily Double. You have to take a shot, though!

Scores going into Final Jeopardy!:
Matt $34,800
Samantha $3,400
Dennis $1,800

Final Jeopardy! category: UNITED NATIONS NATIONS

Final Jeopardy! clue: This nation of 55 million is the only one to provide a Secretary-General but never to have a seat on the Security Council

Dennis 1800 – 1601 = 199
Samantha 3400 – 201 = 3199
Matt 34800 – 10000 = 24800 (4-day champ, $106,000)

That’ll move Michael Bilow to the Tournament of Champions bubble!
