Episode of Jeopardy, Who Won Jeopardy Tonight
In the September 29 episode of Jeopardy, David Sibley, an Episcopal priest from Washington state, was the champion of the show for the fourth time. He played against Moira Smith, an accountant from Washington, D.C., and Sonalee Rau, a life sciences consultant from New York. During the audition, David Sibley completed an online test that required him to answer 50 rapid-fire questions. He was chosen to compete and is now watching the show with his friends.
The final round of Jeopardy was a close race, but David Sibley won by a tiny margin. Sibley started out in the lead and built a lead throughout the show. As a result, he went into the final round as the presumptive winner. In fans’ lingo, this would be considered a “runaway score.” Sibley’s last question came in the final round and he won $6800.
Sibley’s victory was not a surprise, because the Jeopardy show has been a televised show for almost 70 years. This week, he beat the two-day champion Michael Menkhus and the two-day champion Sue Adams. He has won a total of $21,800 on Jeopardy, which is more than double the $8400 that Menkhus won during the final episode of the season.
Sibley’s victory comes after he took third place in the first round. His final total of $83,458 comes from three days of play. He said he’s not as good as James Holzhauer, who won 32 consecutive games on Jeopardy! He is fourth all-time in consecutive games won.
Marianne dos Santos
The show was hosted by Chris Pannullo, who has won the show eleven times in a row. However, he was unable to guess the final Jeopardy question. In the end, Marianne dos Santos won with 17 correct answers and two incorrect ones. The winner was awarded $10,800.
The episode featured two new players, Rhianan Thomas (a hospitality worker from Downey, California) and Marianne dos Santos (an intermediate French teacher in Ottawa). Marianne dos Santos scored a perfect score of 900 in her final game.
Michael Menkhus won Jeopardy tonight, and he has now won the show twice! On September 23, Michael returned to the game show and continued his winning streak. While first-round leader Jenny Dally had a strong showing, Navid Meherjou finished second with thirteen correct answers and only two wrong ones. He also finished third with $3,600.
Michael Menkhus is a data analyst from Kansas City, Missouri, who has worked for Hallmark Cards since November. Before he appeared on the show, he earned a Bachelor of Science from Truman State University. He then went on to attend Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, where he is currently studying Sports Law and Business.
Menkhus shared a personal memory with Ken Jennings when he watched game shows with his grandmother. He went on to win the $48K prize in the final round, and he was congratulated by fans and other Jeopardy players.
Michael Menkhus will be back on Jeopardy in season 39. He will be joining Martha Bath and Lynda Tsuboi for the episode. The show is an excellent source of knowledge, and Michael is a great example of how Jeopardy can help people.
In the history of Jeopardy!, Martha Bath won the show 50 years ago. She won $40 in 1972 with a question on Elvis. Then, she doubled her money on Jeopardy! during the Art Fleming era
