    emily apparently placed her bet hoping-and needing terri to be wrong, so she could have bet it all.
    what surprised me most though is that only 1 player got fj. i was 99% convinced that this would be answered correctly by all 3 player, regardless who terri’s opponents would be.

    so congratulations,emily!

    i have not seen the show yet and don’t know if terri and jason remembered the right character as soon as the solution was revealed, but i am sure that both have either read the novel or at least KNOW about it. a “quixotery” for something that is done without any hope for it to succeed and/or is foolish in the first place is an expression i heard in the states and europe, even in the caribbean.

    i was not very impressed by the numbers going into fj. i’ll be curious to see why they were that low in about 2 1/2 hours.

      The whole game was a bit of a trainwreck. Can’t say I’m sorry Terri lost, though. She started out all gung ho on Monday, but today and yesterday, I thought she just looked disengaged, like she would rather be somewhere else.

        speaking of contestants: somehow i sense a trend to more and more average players, not just in terms of knowledge – not everybody can be a ken jennings- but…..personality and charisma seem to be down from just 1,2 years ago. or is it just me???
