‘Jeopardy!’ contestant makes most of second chance 50 years later

It took contestant Martha Bath just 50 years to get a second chance at a Danger! champion, Wednesday. The retired Seattle CPA originally appeared on: Danger! in 1972, when it was hosted by Art Fleming.

“Generally, Danger! gigs are one for a customer,” said host Ken Jennings.

Fortunately, the show made an exception in Bath’s case. Although she was not a champion in 1972, she still went home with a nice consolation prize.

“I won $40 and a string of encyclopedias,” Bath said. “And I still have them.”

Bath got off to a warm start, Wednesday. She found two Daily Doubles and cashed in on both. She was a little behind when she entered Final Jeopardy, she put in her full $15,400 and it paid off hugely.

“Martha Bath, that’s much more than a series of encyclopedias,” Jennings said. “You are a Danger! champion with $30,800. Or, if we count 1972, $30,840.”

Danger! is a syndicated program; visit jeopardy.com or check your local listings for the TV schedule.
