In a highly competitive game two of the Jeopardy! Invitational Tournament final, Victoria Groce, a writer and television personality from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, showcased her knowledge and strategic skills to claim victory. The episode featured three talented contestants: Groce, Amy Schneider, a writer from Oakland, California, and Andrew He, a stay-at-home dad from Concord, California. Schneider had previously won the first game of the final.

The categories in the Jeopardy! round included “A” to “A” Countries, Parenting, Aches & Pains, Working Hard, Hardly Working, Pop Culture is Springing Out All Over, and Slanguage. Schneider gained an early lead by responding correctly to the Daily Double in the category Working Hard, Hardly Working. She doubled her score to 8,800 by identifying the term “salaryman” as referring to Japan’s hard-laboring male office workers. At the first break, Schneider and Groce were tied at 3,800, with He close behind at 1,800.

Entering Double Jeopardy!, Schneider maintained her lead with 8,800, followed by Groce with 6,800 and He with 3,000. The categories in this round were Novel Title Characters, Colleges & Universities, Consonant-Vowel x3, A Secret Chord, David Played, and It Pleased the Lord. Groce demonstrated her knowledge by correctly answering the first Daily Double, doubling her score to 22,400. She identified Moll Flanders, the title character of a Defoe novel, as an old word for a prostitute. Schneider struck back with another correct Daily Double response in the category Consonant-Vowel x3, doubling her score again to 24,000 with the answer “novena,” a Catholic prayer said for nine consecutive days. Despite Groce’s impressive performance, Schneider’s strategic wagering kept the game close.

Heading into Final Jeopardy!, Groce had a substantial lead with 37,600, followed by Schneider with 26,000 and He with 8,600. The category for Final Jeopardy! was Mythology, and all three contestants provided the correct response to the clue about an intricate problem created by a peasant who became the King of Phrygia. The answer was the “Gordian Knot.” Groce’s smart wagering paid off as she finished with a score of 52,001, surpassing Schneider’s total of 37,601. He finished in third place with a score of 16,600.

This exciting game showcased the quick thinking and knowledge of all three contestants, but it was Groce’s consistent performance and strategic wagering that ultimately secured her victory in game two of the final. With one win each, Schneider and Groce will face off in the next episode to determine the ultimate champion of the Jeopardy! Invitational Tournament.
