- Part 2" - May 24
It all comes down to this.
We started with 145 people, all with one goal: $2
million dollars. After some byes, a few stunners, and
some moments of zen, we have our final three... Ken
Jennings, the recordholder. Brad Rutter, the
million-dollar master. Jerome Vered, an early great. One
of them will be the new king of quiz with another $2
million pocketed. Second place is guaranteed half a
million, while third is guaranteed a quarter-mill, but
who will get which check?
The moment three months in
the making is upon us.
