Last Night on Jeopardy!: After Slow Start, FNC’s Chris Wallace Crushes The Competition

Last night was night three of “Jeopardy!” “Power Players” week, which features powerful Washington political types, celebrities and TV news personalities playing on the show for their favorite charities. The contestants last night were syndicated talk show host and cardiac surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz, “Fox News Sunday” moderator Chris Wallace and “BBC World News America” anchor Katty Kay.

As in the last few games, the “Jeopardy!” writers threw in some categories based on who was playing, including “Fair and Balanced” (which was about things that were either balanced, or fair, not a certain cable news channel), “You Call Yourself a Doctor?” (about, well, doctors), and “The British Are Coming!” (about battles and skirmishes between the U.S. and Great Britain in the early days of the nation).

Despite a slow start, this game was all Wallace. He dominated Double Jeopardy!, and went into Final Jeopardy! with no chance of being caught. Even as all three got Final right, Wallace ended up with far more than both Kay and Oz combined, winning his charity $50,000.
