It’s the last Final Wager of 2015! Here’s hoping we can end the year on a high note.

We’ve got two returning contestants tonight; Ashley is making the most of her second chance.

Johnny

Saunders

Sandro

Marchegiani

Ashley

Wilson

9,600 10,800 20,600

For what it’s worth, I really liked all three of tonight’s players – all of them were fun in their own ways.

First-order calculations

The category is irrelevant; Sandro needs to go all-in. Johnny, sad to say, is a hair out of contention (he’d need 9,800).

Aw, man! Johnny picked the wrong night to not wager zero.

Congrats to Ashley, who gets to appear on Jeopardy! in two different years. How many people can say that?

Have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.
