Calling this week “weird” doesn’t do it justice. How will we wrap it up?The Final Wager – January 23, 2015

This week’s color scheme was chosen by John Schultz; I changed tonight’s color in honor of his Friday tradition of wearing a pink shirt.

John Schultz pink

It looks like Will’s luck is about to run out – but he is still in contention by a thread.

Will Anderson Brad Nehring Sarah Boulding
8,000 15,900 7,000

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

RIVERS

Fairly straightforward: Will needs to wager everything (or almost everything), Brad should wager at least 101, and Sarah should leave at least 201 in the bank.

What actually happened

New champ – we’ll see how he does on Monday! Have a great weekend.

    In the last 10 regular games (counting tonight) in which we had three players in Final Jeopardy we have the following result: In 1 case all three got it right = easy. 4 cases of 1 right + 2 cases of 2 right = 6 ok and 3 cases of 0 right = hard. So that’s a “final jeopardy degree of difficulty = just right” score of 60%. The “average degree of difficulty” score (higher is harder) is 1.90.

    No triple stumper today so the “no triple stumper on FJ” streak now stands at 4 days.

    Keith, I think I might have found the record for least totaled incorrect responses, it was 0 incorrect response on June 11, 2014 pitting Molly LaLonde, Darren O’Connor and Sari Laufer. Do you know how common it is for all 3 contestants to never miss a response (excluding final)?

What do you think?
