On Monday April 15, Jeopardy! fans witnessed another exciting episode as three new contestants took center stage: Adam Sieff, an attorney from Los Angeles; Joshua Beckett, an ethicist from Knoxville, Tennessee; and Alison Betts, a writer and creative executive from San Jose, California, who entered the game with an impressive two-day winning streak and a total of $61,700.

The game kicked off with a diverse range of categories in the Jeopardy! round, including “Historic Americans,” “Boats,” and the intriguing “3-Letter Spelling Bee.” Alison took an early lead, showcasing her knowledge in the “Historic Americans” category by correctly responding to the first Daily Double.

She continued to dominate in the Double Jeopardy! round, where categories such as “Health Observances,” “In the Dictionary,” and “A Love of Books” were unveiled. Alison’s strategy of consistently targeting the higher-value clues paid off, as she successfully answered all three Daily Doubles, further extending her lead.

Heading into Final Jeopardy!, Alison had a comfortable lead with a score of $26,800, followed by Joshua with $8,400 and Adam with $4,800.

The Final Jeopardy! category, “Great Brits,” posed a challenging question about a historical figure. Both Alison and Joshua provided the correct response of Who was Newton?, with Alison adding a substantial $9,000 to her score, ultimately winning the game with a total of $35,800.

Alison’s three-day winning streak has now accumulated a remarkable total of $97,500, positioning her as a strong contender in the tournament. Joshua finished in second place with $9,601, while Adam came in third with $1,800.

It’s worth noting that the contestants struggled with some musical clues, missing questions related to iconic bands such as Madness, The Grateful Dead, and The B-52’s. Nonetheless, the episode showcased the players’ strong suits and highlighted the importance of a well-rounded knowledge base in the quest for the coveted Jeopardy! championship.
