Michael Menkhus returned Danger! Season 39 which aired a new episode on Friday September 23, 2022.
Michael is a data analyst from Kansas City, Missouri who defeated daily winner Martha Bath on the September 22 episode. Despite losing her second game on the show, Martha took home $56,900, the amount she made in two days.
Returning Champion Michael’s total winnings from his first game was $31,201. After winning the previous episode’s game, he played against new players once more to defend his victory.
In the last episode, the new contenders were Jenny Dally, an assistant curator from San Francisco, California, and Navid Mehrjou, an attorney from Elmhurst, New York.
Today’s Danger! Winner, Michael Menkhus
Michael returned on the September 23 episode to play his second game on the show. Luckily he managed to continue his winning streak this time too.
In the latest episode, categories for the first round included “Going Home, Take Me To The Pilot, New Harlequin Romances In 2022, Cutting Back On The Brand, So Gallantly Streaming, Tiny 3-Letter Words.”
It was a very close match as the scores of all three players didn’t differ much. Jenny Dally took the lead in round one when she got 12 correct answers and two wrong answers for $4,600. Navid Mehrjou provided 13 correct answers, but a few wrong answers capped his grand total at $4,200. One-Day winner Michael, on the other hand, finished in third place with 15 correct answers and three wrong answers, earning him a $3,600 score.
The second round categories were “American History, Bible Study, It’s Only ‘One’ Country, Infrastructure, Song Snippets, Yiddishism”.
Michael ruled the Double Jeopardy round, providing the highest number of correct answers and taking home $11,400. Navid managed to double his amount and win $8,600 while Jenny’s total saw no change and was still $4,600.
In the Final Jeopardy round, Michael and Navid got the correct answers while Jenny didn’t. The latter tried her best to make a lot by betting an amount close to her total winnings, but she lost the bet. Luckily, even though Navid did the same, he won the bet. However, his total did not exceed Michael’s total earnings as they had a $101 difference.
So Michael Menkhus won Danger! today.
