Bob Blake won a total of $82,501 over the five games he appeared in. In later appearances in tournament games, Blake took home another $115,000. He decided to give back and donated a significant amount of his winnings to New York’s Missionaries of Charity. When asked if he had purchased anything extravagant with his winnings, he replied: “I am a Canadian and an actuary. What do you think?”
After failing to make it into the Teen Tournament, Gilbert Collins made it to regular ol’ Jeopardy! and managed to win big. His 5 game streak earned him $84,201 back in early 2018. This avid traveler has visited over 50 countries throughout his life and can also speak five languages: English, Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German. Quite an impressive guy!
