What is Watership Down?



Len 2400 + 2399 = 4799
Amelia 9400 + 6400 = 15800 (2-day total: $37,000)
Megan 12800 – 6001 = 6799 (Rabbit Is Rich)

(My guess was Updike’s first novel. Though I should have known that my own confusion as to the title of Updike’s first work likely would have meant that they would have been less likely to ask about it, and more likely to ask for Updike instead)

Not sure how Keith will react to Amelia’s wager tonight. I don’t think it’ll be a favorable reaction.

Meanwhile, Amelia got into an arm-wrestling match with Alex:

  1. Meghan answered a question without saying ” what is”? Answer was Pan Am.

      Assuming this was the case (a few viewers are posting online, though, that they did hear a “what is”), it took place in the Jeopardy! round; the show traditionally does not penalize for failing to phrase in the form of a question in the first round.

    Wow. I’m probably the biggest Richard Adams fan who has ever been on Jeopardy!. Would have loved this for my FJ. Watership Down was a cool, trippy movie, too.
