Jeopardy! Season 39 returned with a model new episode on Monday, April 24, 2023, that includes three opponents. Whereas one was the returning champion, the opposite two had been new gamers. After successful two competitions, Emma Hill Kepron returned to the sport present to defend her third win in opposition to newcomers. As per the format of the Emmy-winning sequence, the highest-scoring participant will advance to the following episode.
The official synopsis of Jeopardy! reads:
“A returning champion and two challengers check their buzzer abilities and their data in a variety of educational and standard classes.”
Within the newest episode, Emma, a librarian from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, performed in opposition to two new contenders — Année Tousseau, an editor from Alameda, California, and Dillon Hupp, a growth director from North Little Rock, Arkansas.
Right now’s Jeopardy! winner is Dillon Hupp
Emma Hill Kepron maintained her successful streak of as much as two video games and will have received her third recreation as properly. Sadly, her luck was not on her aspect within the remaining spherical.
Within the April 24 episode, the classes for the primary spherical included “African Geography, Synonyms & Antonyms, Non-Video Video games, American Lit, That’s An Animal Sound, Beatles ’S’ongs.”
Returning champion Emma didn’t play properly in comparison with her earlier performances. She gave solely 4 appropriate solutions and one incorrect response. New participant Année Tousseau, accurately and incorrectly, answered the identical variety of questions as Emma. Dillon Hupp performed splendidly within the first spherical as he gave 15 appropriate solutions, which included a Every day Double. Though he incorrectly answered two questions, it didn’t have an effect on his scores.
The primary spherical scores had been Dillon at $7,400 Emma at $1,800, and Année at $1,200.
Within the second spherical of the episode hosted by Ken Jennings, the classes had been “Greek Historical past, Y Is The Solely Vowel, The United Nations, Wherefore Artwork, Thou, Native Boy, Made Good.”
Emma didn’t surrender after her first-round efficiency. She crawled again to the highest rank after successful two Every day Doubles. Though she and Dillon’s Double Jeopardy scores had been separated by simply $500, she took the lead and marked the opportunity of successful her third recreation. Whereas Dillon ranked second, Année landed in third place with a fairly low rating.
The scores of the gamers within the second spherical had been Emma at $14,700, Dillon at $14,200, and Année at $3,200.
Within the Remaining Jeopardy spherical, Dillon bagged the win as he was the one participant to reply the remaining spherical accurately. Emma and Année failed to present appropriate solutions.
Therefore, Dillon Hupp received Jeopardy! immediately.
Remaining Jeopardy! outcomes immediately
The ultimate spherical of the April 24 episode got here beneath the class of “U.S. Geography,” and the ultimate query/clue learn:
“Interstate 25 connects these 2 state capitals, 1st & 2nd in elevation, & in between runs by No. 3, Denver.”
The proper reply to the remaining clue was “Santa Fe & Cheyenne.”
Solely Dillon gave the proper reply, whereas Emma wrote “Cheyenne and Salt Lake Ci” and Année guessed “Albany + Boston.” Though Emma’s half-answer was appropriate, she didn’t get any factors for that.
Check out the ultimate outcomes of the April 24 episode:
Dillon Hupp: $14,200 + $7,799 = $21,999 (What are Cheyenne & Santa Fe?) (1-day whole: $21,999)
Emma Hill Kepron: $14,700 – $7,000 = $7,700 (What’s Cheyenne and Salt Lake Ci)
Année Tousseau: $3,200 – $3,199 = $1 (What Albany + Boston)
With immediately’s win, Dillon ended Emma’s successful streak as he turned the one-day champion. Année, however, needed to go house with only one greenback in her pocket.
Dillon will now return to the following recreation to play his second spherical on the competitors sequence. The subsequent episode will air on Tuesday, April 25, 2023.
