I learned earlier this week that Markus went to high school in the town 20 minutes away from me! Our schools played in Reach For The Top many times; we don’t need to go into details, but I’d say Markus wins because he got onto Jeopardy! first.
Okay, on with the show!
|Christina Pulawski, a fundraising professional & consultant from Chicago, IL
||Markus Kolic, a developer & stay-at-home dad from Dighton, MA
||Chandreyi Ghosh, a housewife from Atlanta, GA (1-day total: $34,401)
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: AMERICAN BUSINESSMEN
Final Jeopardy! clue: Ironically, this man worth tens of millions when he died in 1990 said his parents named him with a socialist logo in mind
Who is Armand Hammer?
Christina 1400 + 1399 = 2799
Chandreyi 7000 + 0 = 7000
Markus 15300 – 0 = 15300
Had it not been for Final Jeopardy in this game in 2007, I still don’t think I would have known of this response! The name kind of sticks with you, though, once you remember it!
