    What was the category the champ ate up at the end to get back in?

      It was Princely Nicknames. Scott had $7,600 when

      Eliza picked the $2000 clue and Scott answered it – This 16th century Dutch scholar & author “Praise of Folly” was known as the “Prince of Humanists”

      Scott then picked $1600 – This 19th c. actor known as the “Prince of Players” was the brother of a presidential assassin. Scott gave the last name but was correct when asked to be more specific.

      Scott went to $1200 – “Cowboy Philosopher” & “Prince of Wit & Wisdom” were nicknames of this 1930s humorist.

      Scott went to $800 – Youthful thievery earned this “White Fang” author the nickname “Prince of the Oyster Pirates”

      The last $400 clue was picked by Scott and answered by Jake: A 1994 biography of this 19th century showman was titled “Prince of Humbugs”

    That’s the exact same Final Jeopardy! response, on January 12th, 2015 and in John Schultz’s 3rd game, that no one got right, and you’ll notice that had Jake gotten it right, he would have lost to Scott by $100. You don’t want to do that!

      I’m glad you pointed out Jake’s wager. Now I don’t feel so bad about his losing after a wonderful performance. What’s up with that bet?

      Congrats, Scott for catching up and winning the game.

    Congrats vj on your correct prediction.

    Wow! What a game.

    Congratulations Scott! Gutsy move.

    • VJ says:

      Thanks, Jacob.

      Yes, that sure was something. Nevermind the TDD jokes, Jake should have bet to put the game away with the last DD. smh

      But good for Scott for catching up after that and getting FJ right.
