The first round categories included Capitals & Their Airports, Bunny Lit, Well, That Happened, Time for Some Drugs, Duets with Dads, and Find “Out.” Josh Fry took an early lead by correctly responding to the Daily Double question worth $800 in the category Capitals & Their Airports.

As the game progressed into Double Jeopardy!, the categories shifted to Senate History, The Animal Kingdom, Monuments & Memorials, There’s Gold in Your Future, They Directed Themselves, and Emotions. Adriana Harmeyer demonstrated her knowledge in the category Monuments & Memorials by correctly answering the second Daily Double question worth $1,200, adding $1,500 to her total score.

However, it was Josh Fry who made a strategic move by wagering $1,500 on the third Daily Double question in the category The Animal Kingdom, correctly identifying incisors as the type of teeth that rats must gnaw constantly to control their growth.
