Oz in Jeopardy!

Our final post on this topic for 2016 comes from the December 22 show, which didn't have a lot of Oz stuff going for it—until Final Jeopardy! Right before the final commercial break, Alex revealed the category to be:

Promising, but not definitive. Then the clue was revealed:
As this was a video clue, after a few seconds of reading, this image was also revealed:
While playing the famous Jeopardy! "Think" music, both the clue and the picture were displayed on screen. (Presumably, the contestants could see both at all times.) Alex then added, "The White City was an inspiration for another famous city, though not a white one." Then came the reveals. In third place, challenger Amelia, at the center lectern, gave this response:
As Lewis Carroll was not the correct answer, she lost the $6200 she had wagered, ending up with a final score of $0. Next up, Brad, the other challenger, on the right, gave this response:
Carl Sandberg was also incorrect, and he lost the $7800 he had wagered, making his final score also $0. Finally, the response of Sam, the returning champion, was revealed:
Alex helpfully added, "L. Frank Baum, who wrote about the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz." Sam gained his wager of $7801, giving him the win and a final score of $16,801.

And that's all the episodes I have for now. I will see what I can do about getting the rest of this season's episodes up as soon as I can, but if there is a few days' break, be patient.
