Merry Christmas, Jeopardy! fans – I hope everyone got to spend lots of time with who they wanted to and got everything that they wanted!
On this Christmas 2015, I think I am most grateful for the support that I get each and every day from the members of the Jeopardy! fan community and former contestants. I know that The Jeopardy Fan wouldn’t be nearly as strong as it is today without that support and assistance! Y’all are AWESOME!
Onto today’s game! Today’s contestants:
|Dee Daigle, a substitute teacher from Hebron, CT
||Emily Poole, a musician from Hendersonville, NC
||Markus Kolic, a developer & stay-at-home dad from Dighton, MA (1-day total: $15,300)
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: PLAYWRIGHTS
Final Jeopardy! clue: He wrote the line “Our home has been nothing but a playroom”
Who is Henrik Ibsen? (from “A Doll’s House”)
Emily 8800 – 8799 = 1 (Edward Albee)
Dee 10000 + 9001 = 19001
Markus 19000 – 1001 = 17999 (Eugene O’Neill)

I’ve heard of the play that it’s from but I’d never heard of that quote before; thus, I did not get today’s Final Jeopardy. This felt very “you either know it, or you don’t” — and it happened that Dee knew it today! Good for her!
