More information about Final Jeopardy:

In a March 2018 piece by Pete Saunders (no relation), it shows that locations where people may choose to move to may not always coincide with the economic path of their destination. Many families are choosing to leave places in the Rust Belt like Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland for places such as Phoenix, Houston, and Tampa. However, as the piece shows, the Rust Belt is experiencing significant post-industrial GDP growth, which is why the Forbes article’s headline finished with “For Now”.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • There are still zero known games where all 3 players bet $0 in Final Jeopardy.
  • This game ends James’ 28-game streak of getting Final Jeopardy! correct.
  • Game 2 of the 2017 College Championship final (Lilly Chin v Gary Tse v Viraj Mehta) also saw the Daily Double picked as the 1st clue in both rounds.
  • James and Emma will be the first regular-season rematch in a Tournament of Champions final since Vik Vaz and Bill MacDonald in 2006 (both lost to Michael Falk).
