D.C. Power Players Jeopardy: Our Intern Watches So You Don't Have To (Tuesday)
Henry is sort of slacking off. . .
We join "Jeopardy Power Players" episode #2 in progress.
Final Question: What is element #79?
- Kwesi "Does this [buzzer] work?" Mfume bet $500 of $4,000 in Final Jeopardy. Hence, he closes with $3,500 ($20,000 for his charity).
- Maria Bartiromo--who had to be given $1,000 to qualify for Final Jeopardy--bet $700 and closed with $300 ($20,000). Embarrassing.
- Anderson "I'm an idiot" Cooper bet $1,000 of $12,200 in the final round, but made up his answer. He ended with $11,200, or $50,000 for his charity.
Best line of the night, from Trebek: "Oh, you worked that one, Anderson. You worked that one."
