Celebrity Jeopardy! season 2 quarterfinals 1
- Mark Duplass
- Emily Hampshire
- Utkarsh Ambudkar
The first game of Celebrity Jeopardy! season 2 saw these three actors known for their work in comedies showcase what trivia facts they know. Duplass and Ambudkar swapped the lead back and forth for much of the game, with Ambudkar taking a lead of 21,100 to Duplass’ 15,100 into Final Jeopardy. Hampshire didn’t have her A game, ending the final round of questions in the red; but since this is for charity and good fun, she was given 500 points to stick around for Final Jeopardy.
Unfortunately for Hampshire, her struggles continued in Final Jeopardy as she answered incorrectly. Both Duplass and Ambudkar got the answer right, but despite Duplass wagering just about all of his money, it was not enough to overcome Ambudkar, who wagered just enough to edge Duplass by four points.
Winner: Utkarsh Ambudkar
