Did you ever have that evening where you’re sitting watching Jeopardy and you’re getting every question right?

It’s as if the stars have aligned and all 12 categories are perfect for you – by the time Final Jeopardy comes along, you’ve racked up more money than the rest of the contestants and your head starts to inflate. Especially when you nail three in a row that no one else gets.

You’re excited.

You’re thrilled.

You’re one step ahead of Alex -

Even the Final Jeopardy question is, dare I say it, easy – I mean, who didn’t know Mexico City? (Two of the contestants, actually.)
