Jeopardy! Monday May 6, 2024, Recap, Winner and Final Answer



Who Won Jeopardy!

In the May 6, 2024, episode of Jeopardy!, three contestants vied for the top spot: Carrie Klaus, a French professor from Greencastle, Indiana; Matthew Smith, a paramedic from New York; and Weckiai Rannila, an engineer from Albuquerque, New Mexico, seeking to extend her three-day championship streak with total winnings of $35,200.

The game kicked off with a diverse range of categories, including “In the 19th Century,” “State Mottos,” “A Floral Category,” “Embrace the Dark Side,” “Recorded at Abbey Road,” and “Homophones.” Weckiai demonstrated her prowess early on by correctly responding to the first Daily Double, adding $1,000 to her score and solidifying her lead going into the first break.

As the game progressed into Double Jeopardy!, new categories emerged: “Combat Pilots,” “The Plot Sickens,” “Known by Their Initials,” “4-Letter Verbs,” “U.S. Colleges & Universities,” and “Time for Some TV ‘AD’ s.” Weckiai continued to dominate but faced a setback when she lost $2,000 on the second Daily Double, allowing Matthew to move into second place. Despite this, Weckiai maintained her lead going into Final Jeopardy!, with a score of $19,600, followed by Matthew with $13,200 and Carrie with $10,600.

The Final Jeopardy! category, “Historic Groups,” presented a challenge that only Matthew was able to conquer, correctly identifying “What is the Swiss Guard?” His strategic wager of $12,800 secured his victory, bringing his total score to $26,400. Weckiai and Carrie finished in second and third place, respectively.


The episode also highlighted some trivia gaps, as none of the contestants recognized Téa Leoni’s role in the 2010 series “Madam Secretary” or identified Inspector Gadget as the “bumbling animated detective” fighting Dr. Claw.

The game’s clue selection strategy raised eyebrows, with four top-row clues chosen while a Daily Double still loomed. Nonetheless, the contestants showcased their knowledge across various topics, reinforcing the thrill of the game and the unpredictability of each new Jeopardy! episode.

Hey there! I'm Riley, the US TV Previews editor at I may have failed as a musician, but my love for Jeopardy knows no bounds. And let me tell you, The Wire is hands down the greatest TV show ever made. I've been writing about the entertainment biz since (mumble mumble). Stay tuned for all the latest TV news and previews!
