Congratulations are in order for Charles. His performance last night was stellar!
I heard an interesting story about last night's show. You may have noticed that Charles let out a significant sigh immediately after he clinched the contest with his answer to Final Jeopardy. It seems the producers cut 20 minutes from the tape while the judges debated Charles' answer. He wrote "What is Dr. Zivago?" The correct spelling is "Zhivago." Charles' relief with the judges' decision was deserved. For the lack of an "h" he might have lost last night's competition.
Keep watching! Charles will be competing tonight and tomorrow night. Third place is guaranteed $25,000; second place, $50,000; and first place, $100,000. Charles and Jeopardy, as you might imagine, are the talk of the village!
