HISTORY TO BE MADE TONIGHT ON JEOPARDY?

 

 

The Orlando Sentinel reported Thursday that it had received a notice from Jeff Ritter, the senior publicist for Jeopardy!, reading, "This Friday, March 16th, 2007 ... and for the first time in 23 years, Jeopardy! history will be made. I was such a remarkable event we consulted a game-theory expert, and he said it may never happen again!" The newspaper's TV writer, Hal Boedeker, said that Ritter would provide no further details and by this morning (Friday), Sony television, which distributes Jeopardy!, had replaced the announcement with an error message under its own logo reading, "Sorry, the page you requested was not found. The page may have been moved, or the link could be outdated."

 

 

Did someone answer every question right maybe? Is that possible?

it makes sense cause he knew that the best either of his opponents could do was $16,000.

 

if he gets it right, in that scenario, he ties, still gets his money, still gets to come back.

 

 

 

he could have bet the extra dollar to put him at $16,001 if he got it right, but perhaps did not feel confident in the category, and so, did not want to lose the extra dollar if he got it wrong.

But if he misses it, he loses, and losing the extra dollar wouldnt mean anything at that point

 

What would the motive for fixing it be?

Yeah thats the confusing part. The only thing I can think of is maybe he figures since he was beating them by over 5,000 going into Final, that if he fixed so they come back he could just beat them again instead of risking facing 2 new contestants

if he gets it wrong, the extra dollar he didn't bet makes him lose one less dollar, and help his chances by that margin.
