Arthur Chu and Julia Collins are waiting in the wings. Who will be receive the third invite to the Final match everyone’s been hoping for?

Be sure to check out my preview.The Final Wager – November 19, 2014

It’ll be eight-time champ Ben Ingram, who unleashed a magnificent display this evening, amassing 29,800 points before Final Jeopardy!.

Ben Ingram: 29,800
Joshua Brakhage: 2,600
Sandie Baker: 5,400

The Final Jeopardy! category: 21st CENTURY BOOKS

Not much to talk about here in terms of wagering. Instead, let’s talk about having fun during these specialty tournaments.

In the video, I discuss (1) mouthing to the camera during the intro, Ingram-style (2) taking silly shots with Alex. I suggest you do these only if you’re invited back.

What actually happened

Ben is now 11/11 on Final Jeopardy! clues – which should explain his celebration over an otherwise meaningless response. Unless he flames out, he’ll see his 13th clue on Friday.

Starting tomorrow, we’ve got Ben, Arthur, and Julia for two days straight. Who’s going to take the $250,000 prize?
