Jeopardy! Masters Wednesday May 1, 2024, Recap, Winner and Final Answer

The second season of Jeopardy! Masters premiered on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, with a lively and competitive spirit in the studio. The tournament features some familiar faces, including James Holzhauer, Victoria Groce, and Amy Schneider.

In Game 1, Groce dominated the competition, showcasing her knowledge and quick reflexes. She maintained a strong lead throughout the game, leaving Matt Amodio and Mattea Roach to compete for second place and one match point. Groce’s confident and accurate responses in the Double Jeopardy round solidified her victory, finishing with a score of $29,867. Despite Roach’s early promise, she was unable to close the gap, ending the game with $7,089. Amodio, meanwhile, trailed far behind with only $800.

The Latin-themed Final Jeopardy clue stumped Groce and Roach, but Amodio provided the correct response, “What is genus?” However, his wager of zero and low final score left him in third place.

Game 2 featured another strong competitor, Yogesh Raut, who went up against Schneider and Holzhauer. Raut took an early lead and never looked back, showcasing his knowledge and strategic wagering. He found both Daily Doubles in the Double Jeopardy round and made wise bets, further extending his lead. Holzhauer, despite his bold declarations, found himself trailing in second place with $10,200, while Schneider finished the round with $7,000.

The Final Jeopardy clue, themed around World Heritage Sites, proved unnecessary for determining the game’s outcome, as all three contestants provided correct responses with minor spelling variations. Holzhauer’s wager of $3,010 secured his second-place finish, while Raut maintained his lead with a final score of $26,395. Schneider finished in third place with $7,000.
