Another update

Remember my Jeopardy! tryout? How I got my butt kicked by a woman named Rosanne?

Well, not surprisingly, Rosanne-who-kicked-my-butt made the show. I was rooting for her...if she won a few days, it would mean I got beat by a tough won. And she was really good. The competition was strong, but at the end of Double Jeopardy, she had $12,400. Each of her opponents had $9400. All she needs is to risk about $8000 and get Final Jeopardy right. All three contestants got it right (alas, I did not). But Rosanne risked only $2000. WHAT?????? Did she not want the money??????

Still, I'm glad she performed so well. It wasn't her knowledge that beat her down. It was either timidity or really poor math skills.
