Friday’s Final featured a straightforward situation. Did someone mess it up?

Unfortunately, Anna won’t be around; missing that Daily Double seemed to take the wind out of her sails.

Hunter nearly maxes out his total, and hits the only situation in which he could win with such a large wager: the sole get. Had he missed, he would have thrown away the game.

In any event, that gives him a 3-day total of $71,400.
