Final Jeopardy! category: BOXERS
Final Jeopardy! clue: The only 2 men to win an Olympic gold medal as a heavyweight & and world heavyweight title, they fought each other in 1973
Who are Joe Frazier & George Foreman?
Earl missed the first Daily Double of his career, as he failed to phrase it in the form of a question! Remember, regardless of round, a Daily Double must be correctly phrased! The only question was whether Earl was going to lose $1,000 or $2,000, but unlike back in Season 1, the show got the call right this time around!
Meanwhile, Earl needed the last Daily Double to take the lead for good, but will he get through a tricky Final Jeopardy?
