Jeopardy! champs for the week of October 16, 2017

With that $1.00 win on Tuesday, I thought it would be a good time to try out this new format for the weekly recap, showing the daily wins as opposed to the cumulative totals.

Monday’s returning champ, Manny Abell, was a 3x winner by Tuesday with a cumulative total of $42,799 The rest of the week, we had a new champ every day in this order: Joanna Kimmitt, Tom Blake and Kathleen Kosman.

It was highs and lows for Manny. He had the highest payout of the week and the lowest in a long long time. The Top 10 Daily Payouts (on page 2) remained the same, however, because the lowest on there is $28,600.
