More information about Final Jeopardy:
On the heels of her 1981 #1 bestseller Jane Fonda’s Workout Book, she released the 1982 VHS video Workout, which sold over 17 million copies (sales levels rivaling those of Disney movies). She later released Jane Fonda’s New Workout in 1986 and Jane Fonda’s Low-Impact Aerobic Workout in 1987.
Fonda was married to media mogul Ted Turner for a time; they divorced in 2001.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to Alex Trebek’s preferred charity. (The de facto alumni association is currently inquiring with the show in order to determine Alex Trebek’s preferred charity; this will be updated when that has been determined. To date, over $240 has been raised.)

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 96 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 2.9604 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.4938).
An average of 4.6353 4+-time champions (standard deviation 2.0605).
An early cutoff took place 4.101% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).
James Holzhauer qualified 100.000% of the time.
Eric R. Backes qualified 83.499% of the time.
Anneke Garcia qualified 58.570% of the time.
Lindsey Shultz qualified 26.619% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 5.818% of the time.

- At $325,877, James is now 21st in all-time winnings on Jeopardy!; he still sits 6th in regular-play winnings. (Vijay Balse is 20th at $337,400.)
- As things currently stand, James is only the 5th player to have a “Net Earned on Daily Doubles” amount over $100,000 (Ken Jennings ($454,399), Matt Jackson ($147,795), Roger Craig ($117,000), and Austin Rogers ($105,700) are the other four).
- With James missing Final Jeopardy, today, Ben Ingram’s record of 12 consecutive correct Final Jeopardy! clues stays intact.
