-Colby’s Adam Marshall ’12 had such an insurmountable lead going into Final Jeopardy! that the computer screens short-circuited, the power went out, and Alex Trebek ceased to be. No, but really, by racking up $21,000 in the first two rounds, Adam easily doubled Chris and Polly’s paltry COMBINED score of $8,000, and then some.
A nine-letter word for bad weather on a Daily Double sealed the deal for “Young Adam” (as Trebek could not stop calling him). “Inclement.” You sly dog.
Oh, and because he could, Adam bet $4,000 on Final Jeopardy! anyway. Of course he got it correct.
His two-day total, $51,000 and change. Still not enough for a year of Colby. Rough.
