On Friday, my brother revealed he had a man-crush on Choyon Manjrekar, our champion. Will that help our champ’s chances after the weekend?

Also included in tonight’s post: lots of bonus material from recent contestants!The Final Wager – May 25, 2015

Hey, maybe Cory retroactively inspired Choyon to lock this one up in advance. Anything is possible, I suppose.

Choyon

Manjrekar

Michael

Buss

Amy

Berg

14,000 6,600 6,600

Tonight’s Final Jeopardy! category is:

HYMNS

…and I imagine the man-crush only got deeper with Choyon’s response (see the spoiler box at bottom).

Choyon Michael Amy
14,000 6,600 6,600
0 6,599 6,599
14,000 1 1
min max
799

That brings Choyon up to $56,700 after 3 wins.

NOTE: Michael takes second because he was in the lead after the first round.

Bonus material

Ok, for some bonus items, we begin with this week’s color. Andrew Haringer had the right to choose the hue, but as he has still yet to tweet, I picked a nice deep red for his Canadian home.

Andrew, if you want, you can pick a future week – just let me know. And in case you’re wondering, yes, he does know of this blog, as evidenced by this fun interview he did today with a Canadian radio station.

Thanks for the shoutouts, Andrew! (start at 8:15 and again at 10:40)

Second, Michael Buss kept a blog as he prepared for his show. It’s a really fascinating look at what goes on behind the scenes – particularly mentally – as a player gets ready.

The Final Jeopardy! clue

HYMNS
A CHRISTIAN HYMN AND A JEWISH HOLIDAY HYMN ARE BOTH TITLED THIS, ALSO THE NAME OF A 2009 TONY-NOMINATED MUSICAL
Correct response: Show
