    USA has an article on Elaine Dreyer about her new book coming out and also about her Jeopardy! appearance (LINK)

    very interesting final. I’ve watched jeopardy for many years and have never seen anything like it. What are the odds of this happening???? It would not, could not happen if they weren’t in it together. Good for them.

    I thought it was widely known that Reading (the city) is pronounced Red-ing.

      ??? she pronounced both words correctly.
      the city reding and reeding (a book).

      • Robert Anderson says:

        but Alex incorrectly “corrected” her. He has done this before, such as with his misplaced accents on SImon Bolivar.

    I think Allison stumbled into a tie.

    • john blahuta says:

      both bets were highly irregular, to put it politely. but like fate would have it, they made the SAME mistake (in terms of the amount wagered)and wound both up winning anyway. what are the chances that both would wager the exact 200 less than they should have (or in allison’s case 201 if she wanted to win it all by herself.
      this calls for a congressional investigation….:):)

      what are the chances that she would get two DDs in a row and bet less than the face amount of each clue both times. If she had at least bet $2K on each clue, she would have had a higher finish. I know she said that she was going to bet $1,600 again on the second one, but she bet $1,800 on the first one.

    are the numbers correct? WEIRD bets. had ryan bet it all= 20.400, allison would have lost. had allison bet the expected 7.801 = 20.401!! both were short by 200 in their bets (allison 200 for a tie of 20.400 or 201 for a win by a buck, 20.401). what are the chances that BOTH make the SAME MISTAKE and up in a tie anyway???? not the must-bet by ryan and he lucked out, a rather dumb bet by allison and she lucked out as well.could have won though all by herself. so 2 ties and 2 runaways so far this week.

    and i was right with my hunch that all 3 would get it (probably because of edward VIII and by chance the other #5, edward V was a lucky bonus) i have not seen the show yet, but i am pretty sure that none of the three had any idea when edward V even was king or lived- some 600 years ago!!!

    this must have been one of the weirdest fj ever! if i wouldn’t know any better, it looked as if this was arranged by ryan and allison before the game. UNBELIEVABLE!!! i couldn’t believe my eyes when i read the recap!! the chances of this happening as it did must be 1 in god knows how many millions! i am curious to see what alex said about edward V.

    just when you think you’ve seen it all!
