Quick Recap – October 20, 2015

Today’s contestants:

Alison Saunders, an architectural historian from Baton Rouge, LA
Robert Arrowood, a former realtor from Provincetown, MA
Dean Meyer, a scientific editor from Winder, GA (1-day champ, $18,700)

(No, Alison is no relation!)

I thought Dean underbet slightly on her mid-game Daily Double; if she’d gone all-in she would have had the lead going into Final!

Scores going into Final Jeopardy!:
Robert $13,000
Dean $12,000
Alison $7,200

Final Jeopardy! category: 20TH CENTURY NOVELS

Final Jeopardy! clue: A line from this 1995 novel is “the infant glistened a scandalous shade of pale emerald”

Alison 7200 + 7100 = 14300
Dean 12000 + 12000 = 24000
Robert 13000 + 12500 = 25500

I dunno; it feels as though most of the betting was a bit of a head-scratcher to me today!
