Yesterday’s game brought forth a number of commenters out of the woodwork. A number of them were against my comment policy and were not approved; some of them made me wonder why I even allow comments in the first place!
Oh well, on with the game!
|Bianca Hegedus, a financial analyst from Huntingdon Valley, PA
||Colin West, a graduate student in physics from Port Jefferson, NY
||Fred Vaughn, an Internet operations technician from Mineral Point, WI (3-day total: $49,600)
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: THE EMMYS
Final Jeopardy! clue: It’s the first show nominated for both Outstanding Comedy Series (2014) & Outstanding Drama Series (2015)
What is “Orange Is The New Black”?
Bianca 7000 + 4201 = 11201
Fred 10600 + 5500 = 16100 (4-day total: $65,700)
Colin 11200 – 10200 = 1000 (Veep)
As it turns out, this change-of-categories was caused by a recent Emmys rules change, limiting Outstanding Comedy Series nominees to being 30 minutes in length or less! Makes it slightly less cool/impressive in my opinion than, say, Ed Asner winning for Lou Grant in a comedy and a drama, but whatever!
In any case, we’ve got our first four-day champion since Matt Jackson! One “streak of futility” is over!
