    Has anyone been watching the quirky NYC bartender with the wonderful voice - Austin? As of today, Tues 10/3/17, he has amassed over $257,000. Today his final bet was $1000 shy of his total count. They've got another GOOD one!

    Yes, he annoys me. But he is doing well, good for him.
    Before we begin, what are the parameters of the guessing game? How many guesses do I get? Is there a time limit?

    I just hope he doesn't cost himself a lock game with another unnecessary wager like that. Apparently, this sets the record for the biggest wager (not finishing total, though) in Final Jeopardy.

    Edit; it wasn't unnecessary a risk as I thought; I thought he had a locked game, but he didn't, in other words he did need to get Final Jeopardy right to win. I suppose it didn't matter if he wagered $2k or $34k given that a wrong answer would cost him the game no matter what. He's effectively picked up an extra day's worth of winnings.

    Austin is still going strong. Will anybody beat this guy?
    It was me. I let the dogs out.
