Who is the winner of Today’s Jeopardy!?
Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of Today’s Jeopardy! is none other than Cris Pannullo. He played a good game in the latest episode of the show. His key strategy to attain high points in the first two rounds has worked yet again in the October 4 episode.
Cris was able to bag the high amounts until the second round. However, even if his final answer would have been incorrect, he would have still won as his total score was too high for the other two contestants to beat.
During the recent episode of the show, the categories for the first round were as follows: “The 50 States, A ‘C’ In Literature, Toying With You, Ships & Boats, Their First U.S. No. 1 Hit, It’s A Mystery.”
Right from the start, Cris knew what he was doing. He was the player who gave the highest number of answers. He gave 25 correct and 4 incorrect responses and banked $12,600. The other two contestants Sean Holloway and Jacqueline Liao did their best to answer as many questions as they could but they couldn’t even touch Pannullo’s round 1 total.
When we talk about the performance of the other two players, Sean’s score was $3,400, on the other hand, Jacqueline banked $2,800. In the second round, the categories were “Central American History, See ‘Em At The Museum, Wait Just A Mineral!, All That Glitters, Films By Characters, The ‘Ize’ Have It.”
Cris got two wrong in second round. With 15 correct answers, his score was $35,300. Jacqueline and Sean scored $7,400 and $800 respectively. The Final Jeopardy! turned unlucky for Jacqueline as she lost all her money. The category for final round was “Asian Country Names.”
The final clue read, “Like the T-U-V in Tuvalu, this landlocked country has 3 consecutive letters in its English name in alphabetic sequence.” The answer to the question was Afghanistan. None of the players could guess the right answer.
With today’s big win, Cris Pannullo has become a three-day champion now. As of right now, his total earnings are $83,458. He will soon be returning to defend his win in the next episode of the show against two new players.
