Jeopardy Greatest Of All Time Episode 3 Results - Ken Jennings Wins

Jeopardy Greatest Of All Time Episode 3 Results - Ken Jennings Wins

Holzhauer is also still making jokes about himself, especially after Rutter got back-to-back Daily Doubles correct during Thursday's episode. That put him ahead of the pack once again, and at the first commercial break Holzhauer was ahead at 7,600 points.

In Game 2, Holzhauer shot out to a 5,000-point lead when he found the Daily Double. The answer: "This 1832-33 crisis ended when SC backed down from its efforts to void federal law". So far, Jennings has won two and Holzhauer has won one. Still, there was little drama as he risked only $1,200 on a category that revealed a unifying gap among the "Jeopardy!" champions, which may provide a measure of justification for those who don't pay attention to the Oscars.

"These two now-defunct parties each gave the US four presidents in the 19th century", read the clue. All three guessed correctly with "What are Whigs and Democratic Republicans?" Jennings ended the night's first game with 51,200 points, followed by Holzhauer with 27,200 and Rutter with 17,600. The tournament, which pits the show's three biggest champions against one another, concludes when one contestant wins three matches. The correct answer was "garnets". Either way, the second game was beginning to look like a Jennings-versus-Holzhauer situation, with Rutter merely looking on from the best seat in the house.

Post-break, Rutter found a Daily Double and correctly answered "The Grand Coulee Dam" to "The 1935 bill authorizing this gigantic concrete dam mentions the Columbia basin compound", doubling his score. All three also bet it all and doubled their scores. With the category of 21st Century Oscar Winners, the answer was "These two foreign-born directors have each won two best director Oscars, but none of their films has won Best Picture".

Rutter, who first appeared on the trivia show in 2000, is now the top victor on any TV game show with $4.69 million in "Jeopardy!" play.

"I hope I have been an influence on the benefits of emphasizing the importance of knowledge", said Trebek, 79. He bet only $908 and finished with 33,692 points for both games.

Rutter bid 4133 points, and wrote "Who is Knes El Hombre-Eagles Super Bowl LII Champs".


"I don't foresee that moment coming up in the near future", he said.

The answer stumped all three contestants: "Who are Ang Lee and Alfonso Cuaron?" In Game 2, Holzhauer missed a chance to catch up and Jennings was able to cruise to the match victory. Holzhauer came in second with a total of 33,692 and Rutter was in third with 23,467.

Who is the victor of "Jeopardy!". But he did make a comeback in the "Double Jeopardy!" portion of the second game.

Jeopardy's! all time earning record is still held by Brad Rutter, who, during his five-day winning streak in 2000, won $55,102 as well as two cars.

"Jeopardy! Greatest of All-Time" will be a multi-part event that will run until one contestant wins three games. Rutter has never lost to a human opponent during regular play, though he did lose to the IBM computer Watson in a special episode.
