  1. Or a two day total of $44,600

  2. I feel great today, getting a final correct that stumped all 3 players on the show. Thankful I watched the movie Cleopatra.

    • me, too….but I never watched Cleopatra. It was just the first famous notable person I could think of that died by stab wounds. made me also think of Murder on the Orient Express, but that wasn’t real and was less stab wounds

    Guessing Zach’s FJ reply of Bram Stoker was meant as a humorous reference to Dracula 😊. If no more taping of shows for this season, and producers decide to determine TOC based on current top 15, Zach would seem to qualify, but if not winning tomorrow and after the break likely necessary to seal the deal.

  4. Tough Final as we got a triple stumper.

  5. I was a little perplexed by Jennifer’s FJ bet. It cost her $1,000. She had second place money in the bag. I guess she wanted to try to get closer to Zach’s total in case he made a really bold or incredibly bad bet in Final. Just seems like, strategically, she might have wanted to make sure not to go lower than $2401, which would have ensured she stayed in second place. Anyway, congrats to Zach on another dominating performance.

    Dazzling game play! I got 8 of the 16 Triple Stumpers, a Daily Double, and a Triple Stumper Final. I hope Zach thanked his opponents . . .
