I haven’t been able to count negs yet, but I suspect that there were a lot of them! Lots of Triple Stumpers too!
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: ADVENTURE LITERATURE
Final Jeopardy! clue: In Verne’s “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, explorers enter an Icelandic volcano & emerge on this island off Sicily
What is Stromboli?
Ellen 2000 – 2000 = 0 (No answer)
Ben 3000 – 3000 = 0 (Corsica)
Amelia 6000 – 0 = 6000 (Corsica) (3-day total: $43,000)
This was a really difficult Final, too! Interesting that Amelia decided to take her chances on a tiebreaker rather than go for the win outright. We haven’t had a 4-time champion since Matt Jackson; will Amelia be the first tomorrow?
As Keith pointed out in his video last night as well, “Stromboli” came up in LearnedLeague back in August. I didn’t get it then, either.
