Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
In case anyone was wondering, one game in J! Archive had a higher combined total than this one going into Final Jeopardy. It happened on April 7, 1988 – Bob Beers also went wild on the Daily Doubles that day, and on that day became the first person to ever bet $10,000 on a Daily Double.. Beers in that game and Steve Berman in this one are the only two to do the equivalent of what Chris did today — that is, bet $10,000 more than once in the same game on Daily Doubles.

The closest country to Greenland is actually Canada, not Iceland.
The question didn’t quite ask that by my recollection; it revolved around the fact that Greenland was the closest to Iceland, not the fact that Canada is closest to Greenland. Thanks for asking!
The linked game is nowhere near the total in this game. And there appears to be only one $10K DD bet in it
It also came from when the dollar values were half of what they are now. Double the numbers, you have Daily Double bets of $12,000 and $20,000 — and a total of $79,400 going into Final.
Ahh, forgot to adjust for inflation!
