|Jay Sullivan, a bartender originally from Salem, MA
||Craig Goldslager, a financial advisor from Boca Raton, FL
||Vinny Varadarajan, an engineering graduate from Fords, NJ (15-day champ: $75,000)
This was the first time in awhile where I felt that someone actually took the game to Vinny a bit. If I were Jay, I might have been much more aggressive on the Daily Doubles, but it worked for him! Craig just got stuck in between two buzz-saws today! Things were much closer to being a lock for Jay before the judges ruled against Jay’s pronunciation of Gabrielle Reece!
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Jay 18,000 (20 right, including 2 DDs; 2 wrong. 16,000 Coryat)
Vinny 12,500 (18 right, including 1 DD; 1 wrong. 11,750 Coryat)
Craig 2,750 (5 right, 2 wrong. 2,750 Coryat)
Final Jeopardy! category: BOXERS
Final Jeopardy! clue: He died aged 99 in 2005 but cheated death at age 31 when he canceled his ticket on the Hindenburg to get to the U.S. quicker
Who is Max Schmelling?
Craig 2750 + 2500 = 5250
Vinny 12500 + 5501 = 18001
Jay 18000 + 7001 = 25001 (1-day champ: $5,000)
Congratulations, Jay, on dethroning Vinny! He’ll be back next week!
