TWO of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
Written just before the outbreak of the First World War, Beatrix Potter’s “24th Tale” was discovered by Jo Hanks, a Penguin Random House Children’s Books publisher, in the Victoria & Albert Museum archives. It did not come with any illustrations by its author, so Quentin Blake was invited to illustrate the story, which features an appearance by a much older version of Potter’s most beloved character, Peter Rabbit. Read an extract on The Telegraph.
Todd got it right. He bet it all and finished with $2,000.
John Paul picked P.L. Travers. He didn’t bet anything though, so he remained at $3,600.
Annie also got it. She added $4,400 to her runaway, winning the match with an even $20,000, and she is the new Jeopardy! champ.
