Ben Did the Damn Thing
As most of you know, CQ Assistant Editor Ben Raphel was on Jeopardy! last night. Not only did Ben represent Hoosier Nation well, he won the damn game! Ben took an early $1,200 lead when he answered the first question correctly, selected the daily double, wagered $1,000, and nailed it. He trailed slightly heading into the double jeopardy round, but he got rolling on a weird category about actors sharing stage names and used a second daily double (I'm pretty sure he guessed when he proffered "Vietnam" as the answer) to build a lead heading into final jeopardy.
With the category being "Primetime TV Actresses," Ben wagered just enough to win by $1 if his closest contender wagered everything. Then he wrote down "Mariska Hargitay," and walked away with $25,201!
Look how pissed the runner-up was that Ben has watched (or at least heard of) Law & Order: SVU:
Congrats to Ben!
