  Andrew takes the first lectern to play against...
Andrew Lee

West Hollywood, CA
aspiring TV writer
Jay Johnson
Henderson, TN
Lexie Gagliardi
New York City
digital fashion editor

JEOPARDY! ROUND: First Ladies, 1990s Movie Quotes, General Knowledge; US City Seals, Recent Fiction, 1-Consonant Words

Andrew starts with $200 1990s Movie Quotes, and at the first TV timeout, the champ leads wiht $2800 to $1600 for Jay and his beard and $1000 for Lexie and her glasses.

Andrew finds the Daily Double under $800 US City Seals. He fronts $3000 on this: in 1874 Philadelphia added the phrase "Philadelphia maneto", which means "let" this 2-word phrase "continue". "What is brotherly love?" Would've been right, but "brotherhood" drops to $3000, where he ends the round to Jay at the same total. Lexie at $2600 will pick first in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: From A To Almost Z, Highways & Byways, Butterflies, Japanese History; Gloria, Gloria; Hallelujah!

... with $400 Butterflies. Andrew finds the first Daily Double under $800 Japanese History. He fronts $3000 on this: beginning the Edo period of Japanese history, Tokugawa Ieyasu took this leadership title in 1603. "What's shogun?" RIGHT for $11,200! Last Daily Double is under Hallelujah!. Lexie finds it under $1600. She bets $4000. in "Mississippi Squirrel Revival", Ray Stevens rhymes "hallelujah" with this city that's in the state. She blanks on Pascagoula, dropping her to $3800 to end the round against Jay's $7000. Andrew again in position to control Final with $11,600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Food History": in 1525 Spanish New World official Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo wrote, "The flesh of these peacocks is very good". Correct response: what is turkey?

This is one of those rare moments when you have to consider when your show is airing. The players knew they were playing on Thanksgiving, and Andrew wins another $14,001, giving him $40,002.

  Jaymi Horne (Indianapolis, IN) continues her game from yesterday; she has $30,000, but she has no lifelines left.

With an emotional struggle, she does get her $50,000 question right! That is followed by this...

Lewis Carroll wrote "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" for a real-life girl named Alice what?
A: Liddell
B: Ashdown
C: Dewhurst
D: Pendry

Jaymi has no clue. Since it's a free guess, she decides to go with D... but it's A! Well, at least she won $50,000!

On to LINQ Hotel and Casino, where we find...

Kenneth Garson (Brooklyn, NY)
He had been auditioning for the show for over 10 years.

He gets through to $5,000 before time runs out for today; Kenneth will return tomorrow!
