    How often in the “Jeopardy!” round that the daily double gets hit as the next to last clue in the round 2 days in a row?

  2. aaaa says:

    Categories, especially in DJ! where all the clues are going to be read by the Clue Crew or a celebrity, should be saved for last, or at least the last clue in the category saved for last. The powers that be want all five clues in such categories revealed. Because that wasn’t done tonight, two clues were left unrevealed in DJ!. Such categories appearing in the first round sometimes means DJ! has several unplayed clues as happened a few shows ago.

      I agree. The Clue Crew and the celebrity clues are annoying to me. They waste time and then Alex wastes more time by talking when the celebrity clues are finished.

        They aren’t going to go away, though. Doesn’t Jeopardy! gets paid to promote new shows and all that?

        It reminds me of something Zsa Zsa’s husband, Von Anhalt told a reporter when asked why they adopted someone just so that person could call himself a prince. He said (paraphrasing) well, someone offers you a million dollars, so you do it. LOL!

    • rhonda says:

      I’m sure you’re right, about that, VJ. That prince cuts right to the chase lol.

    Amanda did pretty good today with that $21K pre-FJ finish. Too bad she got done in by the FJ.

    Interesting final but still though the weakest play from the returning champion and she hasn’t even gotten a single final jeopardy question right. lets just hope for the next multi game champion by friday and then next week before the toc. Also VJ, were Tesla and Edison rivals since they both did electricity? I wonder if they ever had a competition to see which one of their inventions were better?

    • VJ says:

      idk, Lou. My knowledge of science is rather superficial. Why don’t you read up on it and let me know what you find out?

    Roger Craig mis-ID’D Lake Winnipeg as Lake Manitoba on a DD in the finals of the Battle of the Decades.

  6. Jim Meyer says:

    I believe the answer should have been Westinghouse vs Edison. Tesla was the man behind AC but Westinghouse and Edison went toe to toe.

    • VJ says:

      I fixed that text correct thing, Jim, but LOL! Once my daughter asked me to come pick her up at work and bring her boat. It was supposed to say coat but I sure had some fun with that (I sailed right over).

    • Jim Meyer says:

      Jim, I agree totally. Questions was too ambiguous. Could have rightly been Edison and Westinghouse. I guess since we have same name, we think alike. Jim Meyer

    • VJ says:

      the answer could only have been what it was since the clue says it’s a book, though I guess you could argue that it was ambiguous because they failed to point out that the quoted part was actually the subtitle,

      That book cover in the recap is the actual book being referred to.

    Wow, we have yet to have the pre FJ! high scorer to get the Final right.
