People on Reddit yesterday were speculating on his last game all the players should throw Final just to write "we love you Alex" or some tribute to him instead of an answer. Then someone suggested they just add on a "shout-out" ala Holzhauer, but several people attested as a fact that the show created a new rule specifically banning that due to Jame's constant shout-outs. However, a losing contestant wrote one yesterday without any consequence, and Alex even mentioned it was sweet of him to do.

So is there any truth to this being a rule? How would it be enforced and what possible penalty would there be?
