Avi's FJ! clue response with shout out:

Scrooge, E is fine though unusual. For the shout out: To my family, I love you so much <3
Jackson needed a little more money on his 2 DDs to have the necessary lead for the FJ! round. Avi could have added 2800 more on DD3 if needed. As is viewers were treated to a tiebreaker. Too bad the clue was such a gimme. Anyone with inside information want to confirm that was the first tiebreaker the guys saw? If there had been a stumper I would think time would not allow it to be shown and it would be edited out.

Teagan tried to keep up with the guys while their buzzer skills were a hair better.

Off the FJ! category I had Twain or Dickens. The clue went there with one of the typical authors and with "Christmas" in the wording it was destined for 3/3. It was only a matter if Avi or Jackson blinked and they did not.

Question for cheezguyty (mostly because I don't keep tournament data in my spreadsheets):

Other than Holzhauer games, where does today's game rank in terms of "combined final score post-Final Jeopardy"?

Avi indicated on Reddit that it was.

Last time it happened I recall one of the competitors confirming that they would in fact edit out any double stumpers.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Why was Jackson wearing the same sweater/dress shirt combo that I did on Wheel? Is this a sign?

I went 0/5 in the Movies and Broadway categories.

NHO "Vampire Diaries" either.

I'm glad that Lukas Graham wasn't in the "Graham" category, because "7 Years" may very well be my least-favorite song of the 21st century.

Loved the shout-out to Kathy Mattea in 2020s for $1,600.

For some reason I found the words of encouragement category very obtuse.

Instaget FJ! and tiebreaker. Ooh, tiebreaker. Have they ever had that graphic for it before on the screen next to Alex?

What a great game they played tonight! It felt so surreal when I was watching and I was so nervous inside watching (probably because I still remember what it was like :D ) When I saw Avi and Jackson get their answers right I got so excited and while that clue probably should have been harder, I did get to enjoy seeing a tiebreaker question be played.

We need two more for a category to go with previous Academy and Weekend.

It sounded like Jackson buzzed in early, and therefore eliminated himself from being able to answer such an easy question. Poor kid! :oops:

Edit: There was a "ring" sound just after Alex started reading the question which I thought was Jackson buzzing in, but I think this was just a video glitch, and not Jackson buzzing in early.

Now THAT'S how to play the game! I wish I could have been there to shake the hands of all three of these young folks and congratulate them on a game well done. And what a damned shame either of them had to lose, esp. Jackson on the tiebreaker.

As I see the lineup for the finals, I think we are in for an excellent finish.

Tonight's post-FJ combined score of $106,399 is the highest ever for any game outside of James's run, or third highest for Archived games when adjusting for pre-doubled clue values (behind two other Teen Tournament matches: $61,600 for the 1996 TeenT deciding game and $55,000 in the 1994 TeenT closer).

Great game by all three kids! The softball FJ was a little disappointing.

EASILY my favorite post-James game so far! Holy moly, did all THREE contestants play amazingly well in this game! Congrats to Avi for his hard-earned victory here (that came down to a tiebreaker, LOL!), but Teagan and Jackson should also both be very proud of their performances here! (I do kinda feel a little bad for Jackson though, LOL!).
