If only had read more books written by Nobel Prize winning female authors...
That's the topic that ultimately ended his magical four-game "Jeopardy!" winning streak, but not before cashing in on a total of $64,001.
Heading into "Final Jeopardy!" Mcshane seemed poised to take home another crown. He had $18,800, a $5,800 lead over his closest opponent, Stephanie Walker, and $7,200 advantage over Brandon Libby.
But with Libby answering the question ("1 of the 2 American women authors nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938") correctly and Dan providing a wrong answer, it was curtains.

Stay tuned for some final McShane social media coverage today.
