Correct response: Who are the Texas Rangers?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The famed Texas Ranger Division (commonly called the Texas Rangers) dates back to 1823 when Stephen F. Austin employed 10 men as “rangers” to protect newly settled families who had arrived in Texas following the Mexican War of Independence. The group was formally constituted in 1835 and has served in the State of Texas ever since.
Of course, the Major League Baseball team located in the Dallas metro area named themselves the Texas Rangers after the law enforcement squad.

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 140 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 4.1345 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.6842).
An average of 7.37 4+-time champions (standard deviation 2.0671).
An early cutoff took place 8.387% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
Steven Oppenheim qualified 29.087% of the time.
Anneke Garcia qualified 76.020% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 55.325% of the time.
Jonathan Dinerstein qualified 29.481% of the time.
Alex Schmidt qualified 9.715% of the time.
John Presloid qualified 2.342% of the time.
Jackie Fuchs qualified 0.265% of the time.
- Steven wrote his name and had Alex call on him as Steve-O the entire game.
- Has it ever been a bad week for the closed captioners. On REFERENCE GOES DIGITAL $1200, they had Steve-O saying “position” instead of the “physician” which he clearly said.
- Christopher had a very deliberate style of play. It was obviously the way he wanted to play the game, but I fear that the viewing audience isn’t going to be as receptive towards it.
- Effective in first on buzzer percentages: Steve-O 37.25% (19/51), Aaron 33.33% (17/51), Christopher 29.41% (15/51)
