It's been one heck of a match after another this week and all this season on the Celebrity Invitational, but now it's all come down to this. In a moment, Michael McKean, Cheech Marin, or Jane Curtin will have $1 million donated to the charity of their choice in their name.

In this competition, Jeopardy! will have given away $2.5 million, with $1 million going to the charity of the winner. Second place will take another $250,000, while third will take another $100,000.

The box is locked. The board is lit. It is FINALS TIME!

Note on category #6: these are words that were retroactively created, such as "snail mail".

Daily Double #1: $2000 How Low Can You Go?. Jane leads with $8200 to Michael's $6400. Cheech wants her to bet it all. Jane bets $1000 on this: this chemical element has the lowest melting point of any metal & that's why it's liquid at room temperature. "Oh, what is mercury?" Correct for $9200.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Science. Both Michael & Cheech trail by $2400. Michael's going for $2500 on this: it's a substance that conducts current: sodium & potassium are 2 of the ones Gatorade restores to your body. "What's an electrolyte?" Correct for $10,900 and the lead!

At the end of Double Jeopardy!...

Michael Cheech Jane

Okay, now let's talk numbers...

- Cheech... there's no way to say this, but with your total, you're pretty much out of it.
- If Jane doubles up, she'll go to $49,000. Therefore...
- Michael, the magic number here is $5301. That number will lock you into the title.

Final Jeopardy! category: MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES

 

IN 1949 THIS KINGDOM DROPPED THE WORD "TRANS" FROM THE BEGINNING OF ITS NAME

Jane's response: What is ? WRONG. Wager: $9999. Total: $1.
