Rhee Making His Run on 'Jeopardy!' with Four Wins
AAMC doctor continues his win streak, so far winning more than $85,000.
A more relaxed and confident Jay Rhee of Cape St. Claire cruised to a fourth consecutive victory on Jeopardy! Thursday night. Chided by Alex Trebek for his “always serious” expressions, the Anne Arundel Medical Center oncologist had a lot to smile about by the end of the show.
Rhee apparently has big plans for his big earnings and told the host he would be getting a new sump pump (life in Cape St. Clair) and a Chanel bag as a gift for someone. He should be in good shape as his four-day winnings stand at $85,803.
The competition for Thursday night included Andrew Dobbs, a community organizer and writer from Texas, and Pat Connor, a systems analyst from Massachusetts.
The contestants struggled at times with the categories, with incorrect responses and some left unanswered. Dobbs and Connor often erased any gains throughout the game.
By the time of Final Jeopardy, Rhee had an insurmountable lead and did not need to be concerned about missing the final challenge.
In the category of literature, the contestants were asked to identify the sequel novel with two characters that were “exactly mirror identical.”
None were able to correctly answer "What is Through the Looking Glass?" or the sequel to Alice in Wonderland.
Rhee will continue his appearance on Jeopardy! on tonight’s show, 7 p.m. on WMAR, and Patch will keep up with his progress until the end.
