Strategy? Food coma? Maybe a little of both? I’m curious about the approach of one of tonight’s contestants.

Alex really turned up the heat toward the end of Double Jeopardy! – despite missing several clues, including a key one late in the round.

In tonight’s video, I discuss why it might have been good for Alex to risk the lock on that $1,600 clue with one clue left to play and very little time left.

Alex is now 3/3 on Final Jeopardy! clues, while his opponents have gone 1/6. More important, he has now won 3 games and $63,401, and will be on the ToC leaderboard when I update it tomorrow.
