Seth Wilson Plays Stock Jeopardy on CNBC

Here is the CNBC “Stock Jeopardy” video that Jacob tipped us off to earlier. Host Melissa Lee talked to 12x Jeopardy! champ Seth Wilson a little bit about what he was planning on doing with the $265,002 that he won on the show. Seth said some of the money was earmarked for research to help him finish his dissertation. He is also planning to make some wise investments.

Seth then participated in a game of Stock Jeopardy with these four Fast Money traders: Pete Najarian, David Seaburg, Dan Nathan and Guy Adami. They had 3 categories with 2 questions each. Here they are in the order that the clues were chosen, showing who got it right:

Reel Money – Adjusted for inflation, this is the highest grossing film of all time (Pete)

Corner Office – This CEO & investor once said “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it.” (Pete)

Reel Money – This film starred Kevin Bacon as an out-of-work broker who later became a bike messenger (Nobody)

Stock Ticker: This company’s ticker is also the term for a knockout in boxing (Guy)

Corner Office: This former WorldCom CEO was convicted of fraud & conspiracy (Dan)

Stock Ticker: Listed alphabetically, this company’s ticker would appear first in the Dow (Seth)
