Tonight’s video is dedicated to a very special person.The Final Wager – July 22, 2015

That person, of course, is Alex Trebek, who celebrates his 75th birthday today. Watch the video to hear about the first time I ever met him in the flesh! (I still get a chuckle out of it.)

We’ve got an easy situation tonight, and Scott is going to break our drought of three-timers.

One note: why was everyone avoiding the FEMALE NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS category at the end? The Daily Double had to be there – and it was the best way for the trailers to get back into contention.

Were I Kris, I’d wager either everything or nothing; he had the higher score after the first round, so he would have won a tie for second against Brianne. Brianne should have wagered between, say, $10 and $5,590.

Scott, on the other hand, has now won 3 games and $73,401.
