  1. Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
    Doug $12,400
    Hunter $6,200
    Debbi $5,400

    Final Results:
    Debbi $5,400 – $1,601 = $3,799 (Who is Mother Teresa?)
    Hunter $6,200 – $6,200 = $0 (Who is Emily Dickinson?)
    Doug $12,400 + $0 = $12,400 (wrote Emily Dickinson, crossed it off and responded correctly) (1-day total: $12,400)

    FYI: I disagree with Doug’s choice of bet today, but his choice is certainly defensible. Here’s an article I wrote about it last January.
