Choyon is 50/50 when it comes to
runaways. Let's see if he can go for the hat trick against...
TWO DAY CHAMPION
graduate student in philosophy
Choyon starts with $200 Portmanteau
Words, finding the Daily Double under $400 Dostoyevsky. He's going
for it on this: a series of his articles in the 1870s attacked
Catholicism & predicted the triumph of this church. "What is the
Orthodox Church?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2400! He ends the round with
$5600 to $4600 for Michael. Amy's out of the red with $2200, but
she'll get the first clue in Double Jeopardy!...
... with $400 Presidents &
Secretaries of State, where Choyon finds the first Daily Double
under $1600. He bets $2000 on this: one of the 2 Presidents Dean
Rusk served. "Who is Nixon?" No, it was either JFK or LBJ, leaving
him with $2400. He'll try again with $1200 ___ of the ___. He
fronts $2400 on this: the Coffin Texts & the Pyramid Texts were
part of this 3500-year-old collection placed in tombs. "What is
The Book of the Dead?" Correct for the lead with $6800! He ends up
with $14,000. With Michael and Amy tied at $6600, it's Choyon's
game to lose.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Hymns": a Christian hymn & a Jewish
holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a 2009
Tony-nominated musical. Correct response: what is "Rock of Ages"?
No one gets this, but we are introduced to the little-known hymn
of "Kinky Boots". Choyon picks up another $14,000, giving him
$56,700 for three!
