    Jody Kelly, a contestant on The Amazing Race 16 who competed with her granddaughter, died "suddenly but peacefully" on September 5th. Picked in the DDP last year, but it doesn't look like she has a QO yet. She is the 9th racer from the US edition of The Amazing Race to die, and the oldest woman to compete on any edition of the show.

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    I just want to say thank you to all of the organizers and to all of the other players. This was my first year entering the DDP after following it since 2020, and I had a great time participating. I'm proud that I managed to end my first year well into the top 100 (currently tied for 79th, let's see if that stands), and I'm excited to track the pool next year.

    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    Sorry, this was me. I should've specified on the sheet, his Wikipedia page isn't even named "Alan Jones" but rather "Alan Jones (racing driver)", so I should've realized I needed to specify the racing driver. Something to keep in mind when I send in my teams for next year, I suppose. Just checking but if Alan Jones (racing driver) were to die would I still get points?

    Here's a QO for Dan Lembo.
  16. Nick


    That's the 4th player gone this year, kind of crazy to think we've reached the point where we're losing multiple players a year. Also surprised that both Roger and Dan were each dead for over a month before anyone noticed, I imagine Dan will get a QO shortly.

    The Popes' Pool

    I think Benedict will go first, at his age he could die basically any time and it wouldn't be a surprise. Francis will probably die within a few years but I feel like Benedict could die tomorrow. Even though I'm not 100% convinced Francis will die next year I think he'd be a great choice for the main list, since he's very frail and he'd be a huge miss.

    Nightbirde (who I entered as Jane Marczewski) has died. https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/21/entertainment/nightbirde-dead/index.html I think that should count as a QO, if it doesn't let me know and I'll try to find something else.
