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

It only took contestant Martha Bath 50 years to get a second chance to become an A Danger! Champion, Wednesday. The retired CPA from Seattle actually appeared Danger! in 1972, when it was hosted by Art Fleming.

“in general, Danger! The presentation is one for one customer,” said host Ken Jennings.

Fortunately the show made an exception in the case of Bath. While she wasn’t champion in 1972, she still went home with a very nice consolation prize.

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

Bath got off to a hot start, Wednesday. He found two daily doubles and cashed big on both. Trailing slightly as she entered Final Jeopardy, she bet her entire $15,400 and it paid off big.

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