Jeopardy! Recap, Winner & Today’s Final, Monday April 2, 2024



Who Won Jeopardy!

In this exciting episode of the ongoing Jeopardy! Invitational Tournament, three formidable contestants go head-to-head in a battle of wits and knowledge. Sam Buttrey, from Pacific Grove, California, goes up against Colby Burnett, a Chicago-based high school counselor, and Lilly Chin, a robotics professor originating from Decatur, Georgia.

The categories include Tailor’s Version, Current Events, Reptiles & Amphibians, International Sports, Authors at War, and Same Last 3/First 3 Letters.

As the game unfolds, Sam and Colby showcase their prowess in the initial rounds, setting the stage for an intense contest. The contestants’ strategies come to light, with Sam’s aggressive approach paying dividends. Meanwhile, Lilly faces some difficulties but manages to remain in contention.

Entering the Double Jeopardy! round, the contestants face more intricate and challenging categories, such as The 14th Century, In My Feelings, Art & Crime, and Long Words. Sam’s bold play continues to benefit him, as he locates the Daily Double and doubles his score, solidifying his lead over Colby and Lilly.


The final scores before Final Jeopardy! see Sam in a comfortable position with 24,400 points, followed by Colby at 14,800 and Lilly with a resilient 3,000. The final clue falls under the Novel Title Objects category, posing the question, “A girl in a 1950 novel walks into this & ‘got in among the coats and rubbed her face against them.’”

Sam’s correct response, What is wardrobe?, valuing his expertise and quick thinking, wins him the game with an impressive 29,601 points. Colby and Lilly exhibit gracious sportsmanship, even in defeat.

The episode offers a well-rounded view of the contestants’ abilities, keeping the audience engaged with a fine balance of strategy and knowledge.

Categories covered in this episode also include the challenging You Named Your Band What? and “G”oing Places. Fans of the show will certainly relish these exciting gameplay elements.


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!
