    On the full credit roll for this episode is Alex Trebek’s stepdaughter Nicky, from his marriage in the 70s to Elaine Trebek(now Karas). Nicky was a production assistant on the show in the 80s but her name has not been in the credits for 20+ years, but it’s back in the credits. She must be back working on the show after a long hiatus.

    That would have been another runaway for Laura if she went with some bigger DD bets!

    LINK: 10 more clues from this match. I actually had this done 40 mins ago but I got sidetracked trying to download “Green Eggs & Ham” to the Kids Kindle. How that thing works is a mystery to everyone but the kid.

    I love Adele her songs When We Were Young, Rolling in the Deep, Someone Like you and Rumor Has It are my favorite songs. Laura’s second game reminds me of Alan Lin’s second game back in April of 2017 where Meike was dominating for most of the round until she missed final jeopardy. Glad that all three got final right today, VJ. Which one of Adele’s songs shown here won her the record of the year?
