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

After 50 years, contestant Martha Bath returned to Jeopardy! return. In 1972 the show was hosted by Art Fleming and the awards weren't quite as big.
"I won $40 and a bunch of encyclopedias, and I still have them," Bath said. Which seems to be a consolation prize from that time.
Martha got off to a flying start when she managed to find and answer two Daily Doubles correctly on her way to a massive Final Jeopardy! Bet. She bet her full $15,400 to win a total of $30,800.

It's very rare for players to have multiple appearances, and the fact that their two were 50 years apart made it an even better story.
"Martha Bath, this is much more than a series of encyclopedias," said host Ken Jennings. "You are a danger! Champion with $30,800. Or if we count 1972, $30,840.”
