Gatsby the preacher?

It's pretty obvious that the new champ on Jeopardy! never actually read The Great Gatsby. If he had, he still might not have guessed Elmer Gantry, but he'd have known that Jay Gatsby would never have said:

"Do you believe in my innocence, in the fiendishness of my accusers? Reassure me with a Hallelujah!"
