This midweek episode of the penultimate week of the 34th season AIN’T gonna be pretty… -__-
-Caitlion O’Neill, a vegan cheesemaker from New Orleans, LA
-Kyle Adams, a communications manager from Monument, CO
Embracing every moment of his second chance: Ryan Fenster (5-day $113,798 (excl. $1K consolation))
For those not familiar w/ him, Ryan Fenster previously went on a 4-day $90,198 run on the show from January 28th to Feburary 2nd earlier in the year. He was then invited back to the show after a technical ruling from judges on a clue that was deemed incorrect due to incorrect wording. Read more about it HERE.
Rebounds/Rebound Attempts: 4/5
Unplayed Clues ($ left on the board): 2 ($1,400)
Coryat Score: a modest $32,000 (-$2,000 vs. yesterday)
Lach Trash: $10,800 from 11 triple stumpers (+$2,200 and +4 TS’s vs. yesterday)
Coryat lost to incorrect responses (less double-correct responses): $9,800 (-$400 vs. yesterday)
Daily Double Correct Answers: 0 (DDS #17)
And that was our 17th and final DD SKUNKING this season. Also, that is the lowest-recorded DD Efficiency score (-291) for regular-play in Andy Saunder’s data table to date (since 10/4/2004). See it HERE.
Oh, and guess what? IT WAS A DQ DUE TO RYAN TRYING TO SAY A CORRECT RESPONSE WHICH IS UNACCEPTABLE THAT SEALED THE FATE FOR THIS SKUNKING.
Pre-FJ! Scores: Kyle: $10,600/Ryan: $6,800/Caitlion: $5,600 (Combined: a pathetic $23K)
Final Jeopardy! Correct Answers: 1
Winner: Ryan ($13,599 (6-day $127,697 (excl. $1K consolation)))
Don’t worry, ladies and gentlemen — Because we would rebound the next day w/ A CLEAN SWEEP (You can see on an old recap of that episode written on Gomez Reviews HERE).
Ryan’s second run would last until the 20th where he departed w/ $130,397 (incl. both the $1K from the first time and $2K from the second time). He would not advance past the quarterfinals of the 2019 Tournament of Champions and took home the $5K elimination prize.

Thanks to Ryan’s mistake, Trebek has stumped the panels on all of our DDs.
