Iowa City man loses after three days on Jeopardy

Posted:

An Iowa City man's winning streak on Jeopardy came to an end Wednesday.  Tim Kresowik's total after three days was $47,800.

The City High alumnus and urology student at the University of Iowa was in Los Angeles for the taping back in December.  The shows were broadcast Monday through Wednesday this week. 

Kresowik's finished third Wednesday with $5,599.  He wagered and lost $12,001 on the final clue, which was: "The only time three men have shared the Nobel Peace Prize -- Yassir Arafat was one of the winners, the other two were prime ministers of Israel."  Kresowik said Begin and Rabin, but the answer was Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin.
