Small-town Michigan woman continues to tear up Double Jeopardy in Tournament of Champions quarterfinals



One of “Jeopardy’s” biggest contenders never lost her touch as she dominated the Double Jeopardy round en route to her victory in tonight’s Tournament of Champions quarter-finals game.

Jennifer Quail, who is a wine tasting consultant for Dowagiac, won $ 228,800 in her eight games in December 2019, making her the second most successful participant of all time in regular play. Tonight she faced two other former champions.

This year’s tournament started on Monday. The quarter-finals last all week and the semi-finals start on Monday 24. The two-day finals will be held on Thursday and Friday 27 and 28. The winner receives $ 250,000, the second and third win $ 100,000 and 50 $ 000.


Quail got off to a good start and her momentum continued when she landed on the lone Daily Double in the round, giving her an imposing lead. At the end of the Jeopardy round she had $ 5,100, Ryan Hemmel $ 3,600 and Paul Trifiletti was third with $ 2,200.


What a start for Hemmel in this round. He landed on both Daily Doubles back to back. The first, he doubled his score, but lost $ 3,000 on the next. Quail largely dominated the Double Jeopardy round thereafter. In the end, she was in first place with $ 17,900, followed by Hemmel with $ 10,200 and Trifiletti with $ 5,800.

Trifiletti was wrong and bet everything except $ 100. Hemmel got it right and added a modest $ 1,400 to $ 11,600. Quail got it right and added $ 2,750 to $ 20,650, earning him a berth in the semifinals.

Congratulations to Quail who will now play in the semi-finals which start on Monday. The two-day finals will take place next Thursday and Friday.


Two other players out of the 15 participants in this tournament are from Michigan. Ben Henri is a grades 7 to 12 vocal music teacher from St. Clair Shores. He won the “Jeopardy” Teachers Tournament last June, taking home the grand prize of $ 100,000. Their quarterfinal match will take place tomorrow night.

Andy Wood, who is an Ann Arbor comedian, was a four-time “Jeopardy” champion last November, earning $ 91,999. His match is this Friday.

The winners of the quarter-finals, as well as four wild card players with the highest scores, will all advance to the semi-finals. The three players who win the semi-finals will face off in the two-day finals.
