    As a geography master, I knew this one right away. Too bad Rob couldn’t pull off win #5. Hopefully we’ll see him in the ToC.

    • Andy Saunders | March 6, 2017 at 4:19 pm |

      As you’ll see by the release of my new prediction model, the chances are not good.

      • Frank Smith | March 6, 2017 at 8:39 pm |

        His chances may not be so good, but they’re better than those of Fred Vaughn.

  3. Alex Epstein | March 6, 2017 at 7:41 pm |

    It was kinda of a disappointment of Rob’s loss because now he has low TOC changes and I felt his coryot average was higher. #whydoesfinaljeopardyhavetobesodifficult.

    Alison was a big surprise, with her comeback from a negative score beginning DJ. Her FJ correct response was beautifully written with great assurance!

  5. Scott Anthony | March 7, 2017 at 10:36 pm |

    I really enjoy the Geography questions. I was annoyed the other day when the contestants avoided, and then didn’t have time for, all the questions in the “which country is left of…” category.
