"Finals: Vered/Rutter/Jennings - 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.

Jeopardy! categories: American History, US Geography in Song, Alphabetically Last, Compound Words, Guns & Ammo, Haute Couture

Brad sweeps Guns & Ammo, probably a statement saying "I is gon' keel yeew!"

Daily Double: $800 Haute Couture. Ken ($4200 over Brad's $4000 and Jerome's -$1800) fronts $1800. Easy to read as always. The clue: this French designer's "Corolle" collection became famous as 1947's "new look." Ken's question: "What is Chanel?" Correct response, as belted by my fashion-conscious sister: What is Christian Dior? Ken drops to second with $2400.

End of round:
Brad - $4200
Ken - $2400
Jerome - -$1400

Double Jeopardy! categories: Rich-Arts & Rob-Arts, Appropriate Names, British Business, Crossword Clues "T", Isthmus in May, Desperate Houseflies.

Daily Double #1: $600: Rich-Arts & Rob-Arts. Jerome (-$200 to Brad's $4200 and Ken's $2400) goes for broke, $2000. The clue: around 1912 Robert Delaunay brought color to the forefront of this -ism, thereby creating orphism. Jerome's guess: "What is cubism?" Correct for $1800.

Daily Double #2: $1200: Crossword Clues "T". Ken ($3600 to Jerome's $5000 and Brad's $3600) fronts $3400. The clue: prehistoric cave dweller (10). Ken's guess: "What is troglodyte?" Correct for $7000.

End of round:
Brad - $15,000
Ken - $11,000
Jerome - $8200

Remember, this is a three-day affair. Scores from the Monday game, the Tuesday game, and the Wednesday game will be cumulatively added to yield a winner. That person will go home with $2,000,000.

Final Jeopardy! category: Law & Society. The clue: this Hollywood legend who died January 21, 1959 supported placing monuments that have since brought legal challenges. Correct response: Who was Cecil B. deMille?

Jerome's question: Who is Dean? (WRONG) Wager: $5000. Final score: $3200.
Ken's question: Who is Gary Cooper? (WRONG) Wager: $1000. Final score: $10,000.
Brad's question: Who is de Mille? (RIGHT) Wager: $5000. Final score: $20,000.

$16,400 $18,400 $16,000
+  3,200 +20,000 +10,000
$19,600 $38,400 $26,000

After game two, it looks more and more like it's Brad's tournament to lose. But don't count Jerome out and certainly don't count Ken out. Tomorrow promises to be a fight to the bitter end, and these three players will have to remember THESE scores in order for any one of them to clinch the big money.

Big finale tomorrow.. see you then!
