What is Wuthering Heights?



Todd 10000 + 1000 = 11000
Kerstin 10600 + 10001 = 20601
Udit 17800 + 3500 = 21300 (1-day total: $21,300)


Interestingly, the last time the New York Times Clue of the Day matched one of the J!6 categories, it was this game, that had a bit of a noteworthy finish. So, when J!6 and the New York Times Clue Of The Day both had 5-LETTER CAPITALS listed, something seemed a little fishy to me! This time, though, it was because of the visual clue in Final Jeopardy!

Meanwhile, the length of time since a 5-time champion just gets longer!

    Not all three said Wuthering Heights. What was the one wrong answer ?
