The Final Jeopardy question (4/27/2015), in the category “Weddings” was:

In April 2011 he married an heiress to the fortune of a company called Party Pieces.

Current champ Greg Seroka won $60,601 in 2 games last week. Let’s see how he does today when he takes on these two players: Tim Giauque, from Waynesboro, PA; and Ann Marie Senter, from Raleigh, NC

Round 1: Greg found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Isms” under the $400 clue before the first break. He was in third place with $400, $2,000 less than Tim’s lead. He bet the $1,000 allowance and he was RIGHT.

Round 2: Tim found the first Daily Double in “Whip Smart” under the $1,200 clue. He was in the lead with $11,800, $2,600 more than Greg in second place. He bet $2,000 and he was RIGHT.

Greg found the last Daily Double in “Thrilling Millard Fillmore” under the $1,600 clue with one clue remaining. In the lead with $21,600, he had $5,000 more than Tim in second place. He bet $2,600 and he was RIGHT.

Greg finished in the lead with $24,200. Tim was next with $14,600 and Ann Marie was in third place with $800.

Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.


WHO IS PRINCE WILLIAM?

“The prince to marry the pauper? Well, not quite. Although a commoner, Kate Middleton’s finances – or at least those of her family – are what many a middle-class Brit would aspire to. Her parents Carole and Michael have built up a comfortable cash pile from a successful online party business, Party Pieces – established in 1987. It is a mail order business that aims to help parents create ‘magical’ parties for their children at home. Party Pieces is run from a call centre, with eight staff, out of a barn near Reading in Berkshire. It also has a website which attracts around 150,000 potential customers a month…” (The Richest.com)

Ann Marie got it right. She $795 bet and finished with $1,595.

Tim came up with Brad Pitt (He married Angelina Jolie in August 2014). He lost his $5,001 bet and finished with $9,599

Greg though it was Mark Zuckerberg. (He married Priscilla Chan in May 2012). He lost $5,001, the same amount as Tim, but had $19,199 to win his third match with. His 3-day total is $79,800.

FJ Results: 4-27-15

During the chat, Greg told Alex about a high school experience when his best friend almost managed to get him left behind on a school trip.

    Good rapid fire match between Greg and Tim. Greg is real quick.

    Anyone notice how some of the DD’s are beginning to appear at the top of the board?

    You have to love the fj responses by the male players! :D

    • VJ says:

      Yeah, Greg is fierce!! But when he got that Millard Fillmore DD, I was saying “Don’t do it!” thinking he might go big like Friday. He didn’t and you could see he was a little disappointed that he played it safe!

    • jacob ska says:

      @John, you and I were posting at the same time. LOL

    • john blahuta says:

      but then again, we are talking about somebody outside the u.s.

      • john blahuta says:

        william is only the second in line to the throne and probably/hopefully the next king of the u.k., provided charles has the decency to renounce his claim.but decency is a rare commodity these days.
        you will hear from me from time to time when such ,er, strange answers appear. this was too good to pass up.

      • jacob ska says:
