More information about Final Jeopardy:

The article was written in 2007 by Harriet Rubin to commemmorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Ayn Rand work.

One point made by the article:

“I know from talking to a lot of Fortune 500 C.E.O.’s that ‘Atlas Shrugged’ has had a significant effect on their business decisions, even if they don’t agree with all of Ayn Rand’s ideas,” said John A. Allison, the chief executive of BB&T, one of the largest banks in the United States.

Former Federal Reserve chair Alan Greenspan was also said to be a devotee of Rand.

    Can’t believe Paris played mike teeve on willy wonka and the chocolate factory

    • I was just glad to see that he’s back to normal size. 😜

      • I thought it was odd that it didn’t come up in the Alex chat, so it was enlightening to have just seen Mr. Themmen on TMZ. He explained that contestants are asked to list three facts about themselves that might be interesting to talk about, and he had listed his Willie Wonka connection first, which certainly makes sense. Alex chose to go with the rafting story, which was second on his list.
