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.

The reason why Walt Disney used pseudonyms (like M. T. Lott — a pun on “empty lot”) and shell companies (like Tomahawk Properties) to buy the required land he needed for his Disney World resort was because he thought that if landowners knew that Disney was interested in the land, they would hold out for a much higher price. Some parties, looking back, still view the move as controversial.

    An average of 1.447 5+-time champions (standard deviation 0.93664).
    An average of 2.2963 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.1274).

    An early cutoff took place 1.642% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).

    Nathan Flynn qualified 6.713% of the time.
    Tim Kutz qualified 77.743% of the time.
    Todd Giese qualified 35.023% of the time.
    Rob Liguori qualified 6.279% of the time.
