In Match 3, Ken Jennings - with a gutsy DAILY DOUBLE move in the first game - conquered James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter away to take a 2-1-0 match lead.  If Ken wins tonight (or any other night of the tournament), he'll win another seven-digit paycheck and be crowned JEOPARDY'S GREATEST OF ALL TIME!


Ken is in the lead when he finds the DD in GOOD DOCTOR for 1000.  He bets all 3800 on this: A vizier to Djoser, this Egyptian was one of the few mortals to be completely deified and was worshiped as the God of Medicine.  Ken thinks...and says, "Who is...Imhotep?"  He's right and takes a big lead.


Brad finds the first DD in BRITISH STUFF for 2000.  He's against the ropes so he has to bet all 4800 to catch-up with James.  The answer: One of Britain's greatest minds was this 19th century physicist & author of "A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism".  Without hesitation, Brad says, "Who is Faraday?" was James Clerk Maxwell.  Once again, Brad bet and lost it all.

Under THE ARTS for 1600, Ken finds the other DD.  He has a 2000 lead over James..but he goes all in to get James "off his back".  The answer: In this 1951 play, Serafina's dead husband sports the title ink on his chest.  With a sigh of relief, Ken says, "What is 'The Rose Tattoo'?", putting him in a...well,...a Holzhauer-sized lead.  James DOES catch-up a bit, though.

ANSWER: This area of Greece, home to Pan, is synonymous with a rural paradise; it's a setting for Virgil's Shepherd peoms, the "Eclouges".
CORRECT QUESTION: What is Arcadia?

Brad wrote "What is Bucolia?" (2000)
James wrote "What is Arcadia?" (11381)
Ken wrote "What is Arcadia?" (32800)


Unless James pulls a massive coup in the second game (or Brad shifts out of first gear at last), Ken will be the GOAT before the hour's through.

(Example of MtRNtItN: "1000 + 100 to this 'Wrecking Ball' Singer." 1000+100 -> MC -> M.C. -> Miley Cyrus)

On the third clue, MtRNtItN for 800, Ken finds the DD.  He has 1000 and risks it all on this: (1000/2) - 350 to this rock singer who was also a 1997 Golden Globe nominee.  Ken figures out the "CL" part...but says, "Who is Charles Lindberg?" as time runs out.  The correct question: "Who was Courtney Love?"  Still, plenty of game left...


Under VPs for 200, Ken finds a DD.  He now TRAILS James by 1000 and he wagers 5000 on this: In 1900, three years after leaving the Vice-Presidency, he welcomes a grandson given the same name, later a candidate for President.  Ken thinks for a second and then says, "Who is Adali Stevenson?"  That's correct and puts Ken 4000 ahead.

James went hunting for the other DD and found it under Surprise for 1600.  He HAS to do his all-in gesture and bet 20200 on this:  This big landlocked country was surprised to be added to the USA's 2017 travel ban, but was removed from the list in 2018.  After agonizing over it, James questioningly says, "What is Chad??"  He's RIGHT!  Up to 40400 and a spitting chance at beating Ken!

(It is NOT a runaway like last time; If James bets all and gets it right, he'll beat Ken by a maximum of 10381!)
ANSWER: He has 272 speeches, the most of any non-title character in a Shakespeare tragedy.
CORRECT QUESTION: Who is Iago? (Othello)

Brad wrote "You're the best, Alex!" (0)
Ken wrote "Who is Iago?" (0)
James wrote "Who was Horatio?" (44000)

FINAL MATCH 4 SCORES: JAMES: 34181|KEN: 88600|BRAD: 1400

Ladies and gentlemen, the winner in the fourth round by double knock-out...and JEOPARDY!'S GREATEST OF ALL TIME,...KENNETH WAYNE JENNINGS III!!!!

Brad Rutter has finally lost a Jeopardy! contest to human being!  James Holzhauer has learned that the original $2.5M champ is better than the "upgrade".  Each leave with an extra $250,000 into their coffers.

But Ken Jennings takes the trophy.  He takes the million dollars.  And he takes the bow as the Greatest of All Time!  He is the true king of Jeopardy!!

"Who is Narcissus?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2400! He ends up wiht $7400 to $6600 for Veronica. Alissa's $4200 gives her the board to start...
