More information about Final Jeopardy:
Presented as a “documentary”, Jersey Boys is a jukebox musical dealing with The Four Seasons. In its original Broadway run, Frankie Valli was played by John Lloyd Young, Tommy DeVito by Christian Hoff, Bob Gaudio by Daniel Reichard, and Nick Massi by J. Robert Spencer. It won four Tony Awards including Best Musical.
Fun fact: A young Joe Pesci was involved in introducing the group to Gaudio.

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 144 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 4.7143 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.6898).
An average of 8.049 4+-time champions (standard deviation 2.0582).
An early cutoff took place 30.891% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
John Presloid qualified 74.579% of the time.
Anneke Garcia qualified 42.223% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 19.172% of the time.
Jonathan Dinerstein qualified 4.833% of the time.
Alex Schmidt qualified 0.837% of the time.
Jackie Fuchs qualified 0.000% of the time.
- I’m thinking of changing the “in first on buzzer” stat to a statistic which disregards any stand-and-stare Triple Stumpers in the denominator. Any thoughts?
- If his tweets and/or Reddit posts are any indication, John may have regretted not going True Daily Double before this game in a science category. He got his chance today and took full advantage!
- Speaking of tweets, I suspect that a number of people on Twitter are going to be disappointed that John is spoken for!
- $10,800 is the largest Daily Double bet of the season to date. The previous high was $10,600, by Charbel Barakat on December 24.
