Daily analysis, October 15 – preempted by a pointless debate

October 15, 2013

Thanks to the New York City mayoral debate for pushing Jeopardy! back to 1:37 a.m. What’s the point, with Bill de Blasio leading by 44 points?

We nerds can never catch a fair break.

I might put something on YouTube tomorrow, after some sleep.

We’ve got a tight one going into Final. Stuart had a Daily Double on what turned out to be the last clue of Double Jeopardy!, although there were four other clues left, so I don’t fault him for an improper wager.

The scores:

Chris Gaiman: 8,000
Emily Horne:
8,400
Stuart Anderson: 9,200

It’s situations like this where the second-place player gets stuffed: she needs to wager big, get it right, and hope first misses. In any event, I’m not sure what Emily was doing with that wager.

The Final Jeopardy! clue for October 15, 2013:

NOVELS
CHAPTER 1 OF THIS 1952 BOOK ENDS, “THIS IS ABOUT THE WAY THE SALINAS VALLEY WAS WHEN MY GRANDFATHER…SETTLED IN THE FOOTHILLS”

Correct response: What is East of Eden?
