Last night, we saw a new force emerge on the Jeopardy! stage. How will The Dark Lord fare in the first defense of his reign?

The Final Wager – June 11, 2015

He’s absolutely crushing it.

Dark Lord

Harris-Fain

Kyle

Stephens

Kathryn

Tesar

30,400 9,000 600

The Dark Lord got all three Daily Doubles, but only netted $5,200 on them, meaning his Coryat score was 25,200 – very, very high. When Arthur Chu won $58,200, his Coryat was 27,200.

Like last night, we have another “double lock” – no player can improve his situation with proper wagering. Fortunately for my blood pressure, there was no late Daily Double.

Our champ can risk up to $12,399 on his knowledge of this category:

MEDITERRANEAN ISLANDS

Given his clear discomfort with another geography category last night, I was surprised he wagered anything here.

What actually happened

Dark Lord Kyle Kathryn
30,400 9,000 600

25,800 9,512 600

12,399 7,800

Our champ has now won 2 games and $47,800 – and he’ll be back tomorrow for a crack at a third victory to wrap up the week.

In the photo at top, that’s my parents’ miniature pinscher-pug mix, Kermit, who does not get as excited about Jeopardy! as we do. (He’s sitting on my father’s lap.)
