On tonight’s video, I explain how the show Archer helped me get no fewer than four clues on Tuesday’s episode.

First, a note of impatience, echoed by my friends at The Jeopardy Fan. As usual, clickbaity websites have gotten hold of an incorrect response made under the pressure of the lights and several million viewers.

It’s here that I need to remind everyone tempted to make fun of Terry for his “Auburn Crimson Tide” that registration for the Jeopardy! online test is now, once again, open. Here, I’ll even link to it!

Here are our scores heading into Final:

Terry

McElhennon

Alex

Lautanen Walker

Steve

Belding

11,200 12,200 18,600

Steve has more than 1.5 times Alex’s score, so the category is irrelevant.

First-order calculations

The trailers need to wager big, so might as well go for broke!

I don’t get Alex’s wager, but as someone said, at least it only cost her $1,000 – and not a victory.

The Final Jeopardy! clue
