Danger! Season 39 returns with an all-new episode on Friday, May 5, 2023, featuring a returning champion and new contestants. Two-day winner Hannah Wilson returned to the Alex Trebek stage to play her third match after earning a total of $71,000. The data scientist from Chicago, Illinois, played against two newcomers, according to show rules.

The official description of the game show reads:

“Answers are given first, and contestants submit questions. Three contestants, including the previous show’s champion, compete in six categories and in three rounds (with each round’s ‘answers’ entitlement to more prize money).”

And she continued:

“In the third round, ‘Final Jeopardy,’ contestants can name their own jackpot—as long as it’s within the amount they’ve already won. If a player finishes round two with zero dollars, they’re eliminated (from the final round).”

On the May 5 episode, returning champion Hannah Wilson competed against Ashwin Fadence, an attorney originally from Hillsdale, New Jersey, and Brian Alzoa, a biocompatibility scientist from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

today Danger! The winner is Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson made her Game Show debut on the May 3 episode where she defeated Three Days Winner Kevin Bell. Since then, the data scientist is unstoppable and proves her smarts in the last episode as well.

The first round categories for the May 5 episode were “Take Me to Church, Quick Planets, Everything’s Coming Up, Rose, Slang in Espanyol, It’s a TV Mystery, The Great American Baking Show with Ellie Kemper.”

Hannah Wilson looked calm and composed at the start of today’s match. She didn’t appear as quarrelsome as she did in the previous episodes. However, she managed to take the lead in the first round as newcomers Ashwin Fadness and Brian Alzoa struggled with incorrect answers. While Hannah gave 10 correct and only one wrong answers, Ashwin gave nine correct and five incorrect answers, and Brian gave seven correct and three incorrect answers.

The top ten players in the first round were Hannah at $5,800, Ashwin at $2,600 and Brian at $2,200.

Mayim Bialik Mayim’s bouffant hair tonight (when she wears it, it’s usually on Friday.) I love the colors, but overall I’m not the biggest fan of her when she’s wearing 3 different colors in her jacket/blouse/skirt. I know a lot of people would disagree with me on this though!#Danger

In the second round of the final episode hosted by Mayim Bialik, the categories included “Northern Lands, Stock Symbols, A Musical Bouquet,” “Oh,” Yes!, Dunce, Dunce, Revolution.”

Ashwin and Brian try their best to score the highest points in the Double Jeopardy round. While Ashwin landed in the second position, Brian ranked third. First place went to Hannah who found both daily doubles in this round, however, she could only correctly answer one of them.

The top scorers for the second round were Hannah at $13,900, Ashwin at $9,800, and Brian at $7,400.

The Final Jeopardy round was intense with both Ashwin and Hannah giving the correct answer to the final question. Ashwin played smart and bet enough to match Hannah’s score. Fortunately, the heroine’s final two-day total was only $3 higher than Ashwin’s, thus ranking first on the scoreboard. On the other hand, Brian went home with only $2.

Hence, Hannah Wilson wins Danger! today.

The ultimate danger! Results today

In the final round of the May 5th episode, the category was Team Names, and the clue was this:

“The MLB team got its name in 1902 after some of its players defected to a new crosstown rival, leaving young replacements.”

The correct answer to the last question/clue was “Chicago Cubs”.

Hannah Wilson and Ashwin gave the correct answer, but the latter only wrote “cubs”. Brian’s response was incorrect because he guessed “Dodgers”.

Ashwin Fadnes: I know I love a colorful dress shirt, but sometimes a crisp white shirt is the perfect choice for an edgy look! Nice contrast with the jacket.#Danger

Take a look at the final results for the May 5th episode:

Hannah Wilson: $13,900 + $5,701 = $19,601 (What are the Chicago Cubs?) (3 days total: $90,601)

Ashwin Phadnis: $9,800 + $9,798 = $19,598 (what are the Cubs?)

Brian Alzoa: $7,400 – $7,398 = $2 (what are the Dodgers?)

Hannah became the three-day champion with a win today and advanced to the next match. If she wins the fourth round, she will qualify for the Champions Tournament.

Meanwhile, the next episode of the syndicated game show will air on Monday, May 8, 2023.
