Cameron gave seven correct and three incorrect answers while Eliza answered five questions correctly and five incorrectly.

The final score after the round was Brian at $7000, Cameron at $2,800, and Eliza at $200.

The categories for the Double Jeopardy! Round were State Of The Art Museum, Speeches, Latin Words & Phrases, Be Arthur, Golden Girls, and ‘& Then There’s Mod.’

Brian found both daily doubles in the round and gave 33 answers correctly against just five incorrect responses. Cameron and Eliza tried their best but couldn't get close enough to him in the round. Brian gave 11 correct and three incorrect answers, while Eliza gave eight correct and six incorrect answers.

At the end of the round, the final score was Brian at $30,000, Cameron at $10,000, and Eliza at $2,200.

No one knew the correct response to the final question so Brian took the lead with $25,000 in cash prize.
