Jeopardy! welcomed three new contestants on Friday, April 19, 2024, for an exciting and closely contested episode. Molly Fitzpatrick, a writer from Queens, New York, Scott Nations, a financial engineer and option trader from Chicago, Illinois, and returning one day champ Marko Saric, a math professor from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, all brought their unique backgrounds and knowledge to the game. Marko’s winnings so far are $3,799.

The episode began with a diverse range of categories in the Jeopardy! round, including “Anatomy A to Z,” “U.S. Geography,” and the intriguing “Silence!” category. Molly took an early lead, showcasing her knowledge and quick reflexes, and headed into the first break with a strong score of $3,800. However, Marko was close behind with $2,800, followed by Scott with $1,400.

As the game progressed into Double Jeopardy!, the categories took a new turn with “African History,” “Not Your Everyday Words,” and “Poets of Love.” This round proved to be a turning point for Scott, who successfully answered the Daily Double, adding a significant boost to his score. Despite a slight stumble by Marko on the second Daily Double, he maintained his lead with consistent responses.

Heading into Final Jeopardy!, the scores reflected a tight competition, with Marko at $15,900, Scott at $11,400, and Molly still in contention with $4,800. The Final Jeopardy! category, “Comic Book Characters,” featured a clue about a character from a 2020 film, whose name originated from a 16th-century Italian stock character known for diamond-patterned outfits. Both Marko and Molly responded correctly with Who is Harley Quinn?, with Marko’s strategic wager pushing him to a well-deserved victory.

In the end, Marko Saric emerged as the winner with a final score of $22,801, bringing his two-day total to an impressive $26,600. Scott Nations finished in second place with $4,499, while Molly Fitzpatrick, despite her strong start, placed third with $9,598.

The episode once again highlighted the importance of wagering strategy, as proper bets can significantly impact the outcome of the game. Overall, it was an engaging and closely fought contest, with all three contestants displaying their intellect and quick thinking, making it another memorable episode of Jeopardy!.
