  It's the last game in DC for a while, and our last three Power Players...
Melissa Harris-Perry
professor & editor-at-large,
playing for Girls for Gender Equity
David Gregory
CNN political analyst & author
playing for Martha's Table
Matthew Weiner
"Mad Men" creator
playing for the Alexandra House Los Angeles

By the end of the show, our Power Players will have earned over $350,000 in charity money.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Not Great, Bob!; Women in Charge; On Cable; It Happened in the Bible; Talking "Point"s; An Eco-Category.

Melissa starts with $200 Women in Charge, to a chorus of cheers. She finds the Daily Double under $800. Another chorus of cheers. She wagers her bank of $400 on this: as CEO of Sam's Club, Rosalind Brewer became the first woman & the first African American to head a unit of this corp. "What is the Walmart Corporation?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $800. She ends up with $3400 and the lead to David & Matthew's $2200 a piece.

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Bridges, Organizations, On the Bookshelf, Mad Men, '90s Music, Echo Category

Closest to Alex gets the first pick. That's David with $400 '90s Music. Matthew finds the first Daily Double under $1600 On the Bookshelf. Tied for the lead, he bets $3000 on this: a line from Ecclesiastes inspired the title of this Hemingway novel about expatriates in France & Spain. "What is 'The Sun Also Rises'?" RIGHT for $8400! He also finds the other under $1600 Organizations. He bets $3000 again on this: the late Julian Bond was its chairman from 1998 to 2010. He blanks on the NAACP, dropping him to $12,600 to end the round. Melissa's soul (or maybe her sole?) is broken at $5000 to $5800, meaning that even with that gaffe, the game is still Matthew's to lose.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "US History", as delivered by the mayor of Washington, DC Muriel Bowser: in 1790, a deal made Washington the nation's capital; the room where it happened was at Jefferson's house & negotiators included Madison & this Cabinet member. Correct response: who is Alexander Hamilton?

Everyone's right, as Matthew wins $50,000 for his charity. David gets $11,600, while Melissa gets $10,000.

  Ty Walker (Camp Hill, PA) begins with $10,000 and 2 lifelines.

He soon sees this...

Which of the following "Bethlehem"s is closest to the one that's mentioned in the Bible?
A: Bethlehem, South Africa
B: Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
C: Bethlehem, Germany
D: Bethlehem, New Zealand

Ty uses the 50:50, which leaves A and C. He thinks Germany is closer, but he isn't sure enough, so he calls on his Plus One, who is his brother-in-law, Mike. After fixing Ty's shirt, Mike says that he was thinking A, but it's just a guess. With that, Ty walks with $20,000! As for the answer, it's C.

George Herz (Boston, MA)
He was named after George Washington.
(+1): His girlfriend, Laurie

He sweeps the first 5, then polls the audience at $7,000. He calls on Laurie at $20,000, then gets to this...

Since light travels at about 186,000 miles per second, when you gaze up at the Moon, you're actually seeing what it looked like when?
A: 1.3 seconds ago
B: 1.3 minutes ago
C: 1.3 hours ago
D: 1.3 days ago

George uses the 50:50, which leaves A and B. At first, he wants to say A, but he then changes his mind and locks in B... but it's A! Ouch. As a result, he leaves with $5,000.
