Why did he say that?

After the challengers correctly answered the Final Jeopardy question, they had $10,001 and $11,601. The champion had $13,200. She answered correctly. Alex said: Did she risk enough?

Alex - she couldn't lose if she got it right. There was no "enough". She was ahead with a ZERO wager. (Actually she wagered $8,000, of which Alex said, "That's enough!")


Maybe he was overcome by habit?

Agree that the comment made no sense. However, my understanding is that "Jeopardy!" (like "Wheel") tapes five shows a day for a week, so the Friday game is probably played well into the evening. I'm guessing that Alex, being no spring chicken -- and having had a rough year, what with his major leg injury incurred while chasing a burglar -- was probably just tired and operating slightly on auto-pilot when he said that.
