Jeopardy Encore Presentation Recap – August 10, 2016

This game originally aired on November 18, 2015.

Today’s contestants:

Catherine Hardee, an aspiring teacher from Kinston, NC
Andrew Haringer, a college instructor from Squamish, BC, Canada
Matt Jackson, a paralegal from Washington, DC

Kaya Chua was in the audience for the semifinals and finals. She shared her thoughts back in November for The Jeopardy! Fan.

In the span of three clues (two of which were Daily Doubles — a $4,000 miss from Catherine and an $8,000 get from Matt) this game got turned completely on its ear. But that’s all it takes sometimes, and why the game is so exciting!

The first time around, Matt came under a bit of fire from those who dare to police Jeopardy! contestants regarding his reactions on his own $8,000 Daily Double. To those people I say “Pshaw.” Matt was in one of the toughest games he’d been in, in a stressful situation, and heaven forbid the man actually show some emotion! To be frank, I probably would have reacted rather similarly to Matt in that situation.

Final Jeopardy! category: SPACE EXPLORATION
