DD2 – $800 – RECENT BOOKS – Published in 2020, “The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” by this author is set in Panem (From a close third place, Lawrence lost $5,000 from his total of $9,200 vs. $10,200 for Nick.)

Final Jeopardy!

20th CENTURY PEOPLE – In 1946 she was aboard a train to Darjeeling when she heard what she later described as “the call within a call”

Everyone was correct on FJ. Nick added $12,900 to win with $25,900.

Odds and Ends

Clue selection strategy: With DD2 gone and one untouched category remaining, both Kelsey and Lawrence had control and chose top-row clues. If either had tried to shop for DD3 and found it, it’s likely that player would have won the game.

Triple Stumper of the day: In E.R., no one knew the legendary World War I fighter ace Eddie Rickenbacker.

Correct Qs: DD1 – Who was John Quincy Adams? DD2 – Who is Suzanne Collins? DD3 – Who is Princess Anne? FJ – Who was Mother Teresa?
