- The only other win with a total of $1 was on January 19, 1993: Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Darryl Scott defeated Nancy Melucci and Kate Marciniak.
- Fran gets 2nd place over Carlos due to her having more money after the Jeopardy! round.
- With $1,000, Manny’s Coryat score is the lowest Coryat score of any player who went onto win the game (in my score database).
