More information about Final Jeopardy:
The “one country, two systems” principle refers to the People’s Republic of China’s governance of Hong Kong and Macau and was formulated by Deng Xiaoping for the country’s 1982 constitution; the idea is to reiterate by the PRC that there be only one China, but still allow Hong Kong and Macau to retain their capitalist economic systems (with the rest of Mainland China using the Marxist-Leninist system adapted to Chinese socio-economic needs). It came to fruition with Hong Kong becoming part of China in 1997 and Macau in 1999.

- The trivia gods smiled upon Kris by the end; Kris was definitely the more aggressive Daily Double player, and it just goes to show that a sufficiently strong player can overcome a True Daily Double working against them—even in Double Jeopardy—and still win the game.
- To that end, a sufficiently aggressive wager on Daily Double #3 would have ended up giving Sid the runaway that would have been very useful for him today.
