And the beat goes on... Another FJ wager thrown away. This is yesterday's game, Mon Mar 24.

Here are the numbers going into FJ, and the wagers:
Nancy Akerman: $13,200-$10,401=$2,799
Derek Arnold: $11,800-$11,800=$0
Joe Morse: $6,400-$6,400=$0

Derek should have bet $1,400 (or 1401) to cover a Nancy loss. By betting it all, he was giving away the possibility of both of them missing. Which happened.

Typo in the article: it says the show premiered on March 20, 1964. That should be March 30 (a Monday).

I'm sure the judge's would have corrected it.

I would love to see a show that shows his the judges work. Actually would like to see a show how everything on the background works.

I believe I saw this years ago and forgot about it. Trebeck may have even mentioned it once.

If I recall correctly, this PBS documentary shows a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff -- but, as you may notice, it's 25 years old.

Derek should have bet $1,001. Nancy had to bet $10,401 to cover Derek's max bet. If Joe bets everything and is correct, his total is $12,800. Derek's $1,001 bet takes him to $12,801.
