Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: STATE CAPITALS
Final Jeopardy! clue: A 1957 event led to the creation of a national historic site in this city, signed into law by a president whose library is now there too
What is Little Rock, Arkansas?
Randi 6000 – 6000 = 0 (Springf)
Claudia 13800 – 13800 = 0 (Austin)
Mike 13800 – 13800 = 0 (Atlanta)
Not sure why Randi selected the bet that she did. I once said a similar bet a few years ago was “the worst bet in Jeopardy! history” and I think that quote made it into a book. Not my best moment. But this was a similar choice, for sure. No qualms with Mike or Claudia, though. They had to do what they had to do.
(The event was school desegregation. The law creating the historic site was signed by Bill Clinton, whose presidential library is located there.)
