Jeopardy! Thursday April 25, 2024, Recap, Winner and Final Answer

Who Won Jeopardy!

Jeopardy! featured an exciting contest between three knowledgeable individuals on Thursday, April 25, 2024. The contestants were Justin Brandt, an attorney from West Hills, California; Tyler Jarvis, a researcher and PhD student from Portales, New Mexico; and Amy Hummel, an ER doctor from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who was returning for her second day as champion with winnings of $18,900.

The first round presented a diverse range of categories, including “Gorges Countries,” “Top 10 Baby Names,” and “Reality Show Hosts.” Tyler made an early strategic move by successfully answering the first Daily Double, found in the “Bro-Pourri” category, and doubling his score to $3,600. However, it was Amy who took the lead into the first break with a score of $2,200, followed closely by Tyler with $5,200 and Justin with $600.

As the game progressed into Double Jeopardy!, the contestants navigated through categories such as “Below Deck: Sailing Novel,” “French History,” and “Let’s Rock & Roll!” Amy, who had extended her lead, took a risk on the second Daily Double but unfortunately lost $3,000, allowing Tyler to narrow the gap. However, she quickly regained her momentum by answering the third Daily Double correctly and finished the round with a commanding lead of $18,800, more than double Tyler’s score of $8,600. Justin trailed in third place with $2,000.

The Final Jeopardy! category, “Statues,” and it’s question “The 42-foot-high statue of Athena in this state capital is the tallest indoor statue in the United States,” stumped all three contestants. The correct answer was “What is Nashville?” but Amy’s conservative wager of just $5 ensured her victory, bringing her two-day total winnings to an impressive $37,695. Tyler finished in second place with $4,001, and Justin ended in third with $2,000.

An interesting observation from this game was the contestants’ struggle with the “Let’s Rock & Roll!” category. They only selected three clues from this category and unfortunately couldn’t provide correct responses to any of them, even missing questions about iconic music figures like Chuck Berry and Booker T. & the M.G.’s.
