Who is Nostradamus?

Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

Famous Frenchman Nostradamus has become best known today for his famous collections of prophecies. So, in a way, while he was not physically immortal, as he died in 1566, his prophecies certainly have led to his immortality after his death.

If you’ve ever been curious about how much the average contestant wins on Jeopardy!, I recently did the math to find out, looking at data dating back to October 2004!

    With a projected 53 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 250,000 simulations, our model shows:
    An average of 1.9562 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.0886).
    An average of 3.1826 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.3299).

    An early cutoff took place 7.898% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).

    Tucker Dunn qualified 13.854% of the time.
    Tim Kutz qualified 54.915% of the time.
    Todd Giese qualified 17.044% of the time.
    Rob Liguori qualified 2.375% of the time.

  2. Andy, where are you. I hope you’re okay.

      looks like some computer glitch and that Tucker has won,m since it says “Tucker to win 4 games 32.32%”so it looks like he won his third game, though on top he is still listed with 2 wins and the total for 2 wins.
      Also hope that you are alright,Andy and that just the internet is acting up. I don’t think you were preempted for sports reasons (NBA and NHL are over). Maybe another VERY important tweet (by Donald Duck, ehhr, Donald Trump) and therefore “braking news”…..?????

    • “Breaking news” caused various headaches this afternoon and I wasn’t able to get all of my stats compiled until now.

      I appreciate your concern, though!

    Can’t find the Jeopardy Live round table discussion from last night.

  4. Tucker’s not playing what you would call a “shell game”. Here, Tucker had a strong game, but after his next two games, they were pretty low. I’m not sure if Tucker doesn’t see a situation that he’s looking to a possible chance for a spot at the ToC, given the fact he’s won less than $40,000 to this point in his three games. Having to rely on his challengers to be incorrect isn’t always an effective move. In this case, it did, albeit with 2 wrong answers. However, if he moves on tomorrow, he’s gotta change moves. Rob’s got over $80,000 on him in 4 games, and Tucker has half of that. Meaning, he’s got to win another 2 games to get his chances better. An unlikeable scenario for him, but he needs to hope and pray that he gets lucky, like Andrew Haringer did.
