Correct response: What is Dracula?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Dracula is an 1897 novel, the best-known novel of Bram Stoker. It was published at a time where sensational tales about fantastic creatures (in this case, the vampiric Count Dracula) invading England were very popular with the British reading public. The story essentially popularized innumerable tropes regarding vampires, many of which are still used today.
The difficulty of this clue in-studio may also hinge upon when Alex decides to break out his Dracula impersonation; will it come during the clue, or will it be saved for giving the correct response?
Something to remember as well: even though Bram Stoker was born in Ireland, he spent the majority of his adult life in London, as the business manager of that city’s Lyceum Theatre, and he began writing novels while living and working in London.
Also note that due to college football today, the show may be pre-empted in some areas.

- There always seems to be a stretch of slightly lower scores just after a Tournament of Champions or another supertournament; it seems like clues originally written for the tournament get sprinkled into regular games and make them slightly more difficult for the contestants.
