I missed yesterday’s @jeopardy but here’s the recap. I may miss tonight’s episode as well so look out for that recap over the weekend. Usually I don’t like to recap shows I’ve missed but Returning Champion Josh’s streak is just too impressive not to watch. Yesterday he played against Challengers Kristen and Tom. Kristen led the game through the first round thanks in part to categories about Recent Fiction and French Artists. Tom found the first Daily Double early on and lost but was able to rebound quickly. In Double Jeopardy, Tom and Kristen battled it out while Josh remained on the sidelines. Part way through the round however, he found and won the second Daily Double and followed it up with a string of correct answers. Though he did have some setbacks and missed the last Daily Double, he scooped up enough points in the closing moments of Double Jeopardy to jump into first place. It was impressive. Final Jeopardy was about Geographic Terms. Alex said the judges wouldn’t penalize players for misspelling this answer, how thoughtful. Tom was wrong and lost everything. Kristen nearly doubled her score with a large wager and correct answer. Josh was also correct and also made a large enough wager to cancel put Kristen’s new lead. He won first place and adds a seventh day to his Returning Champion streak. Final Jeopardy’s answer was, “What is an Isthmus?” If you manage to see tonight’s episode before me, no spoilers please!
