USA TV SHOW PEOPLE MEASUREMENT PAINTERS CLEAN THIS PLACE UP! DOUBLE "T"S

Daily Double: $1000 USA. David has a $200 lead over Stephen, $800 to $600. David bets the maximum of $1000 on this: in Pennsylvania, 2 rivers meet to form this third one that shares its name with a state. "What is the Delaware River?" Nope, it's the Ohio River, leaving him $200 under.

At the end of the Jeopardy! round...

Double Jeopardy! categories:

LITERATURE THE DVD CLUB ANCIENT TIME TOP MODELS SCIENCE STUFF _____ & _____

Daily Double #1: $1200 Literature. Ben is in the middle with $11,600 against David's $19,400 and Stephen's $6800. He wagers $6000 on this: Dickens divided this book into staves instead of chapters; Stave IV is called "The Last of the Spirits." "What is 'Great Expectations'?" Nope, it's "A Christmas Carol." He's left with $5600.

Ben goes hunting and pecking until he finds...

Daily Double #2: $1600 _____ & _____. Ben is tied with Stephen's $6800, while David has owned the board with $20,200. Ben.. "Alright. Let's make it... $5000." The clue: covert operations are sometimes referred to as this pair: one a piece of clothing, the other, a weapon. "What is cloak & ... gun?" Dagger. He's left with $1800.

At the end of the Double Jeopardy! Round...

$10,000 $1,400 $23,400
Stephen Ben David

This has been all David, as Ben proved the old adage true: this is not a good day to have a bad day. Time to do some math.

The best Stephen can hope for is second place, if he bets everything and is right AND if David bets at least $13,263 and misses.

David can win this with a correct response and a wager of $5200.

Ben has to hope that David bets more than $5200... and loses.

Final Jeopardy category: GREEK MYTHOLOGY

 

FITTINGLY, THE NAME OF THIS TITAN MAY BE DERIVED FROM A WORD MEANING "TO BEAR" OR "TO SUPPORT"

Stephen's response: who is Atlas? RIGHT. Wager: $9997. Total: $19,997.
David's response: who is Atlas? RIGHT. Wager: $5300. Total: $28,700.

Mr. A says: it was Ben's tournament to lose... and he lost it. The final scores...
