Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
According to The Disney Wiki, Pocahontas was inspired by Irene Bedard (who also was her voice in the 1995 movie), Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and the real life Pocahontas. Shirley “Little Dove” Custalow McGowan was a consultant on the project who, apparently, was less than happy with the John Smith romance angle.
We also linked to the wiki pages of the wrong answers in case you are interested in the inspirations behind them.
Cindy got it right. Her $799 bet brought her up to $1,599.
Andrew thought it was Belle. He lost his $7,000 bet and ended up with $6,400.
Fritz came up with Ariel. He lost $10,201 so he finished with $6,399 and that made Andrew a 3x winner by a dollar. Andrew’s 3-day total is $45,999.
During the chat, Andrew recounted his experience in New York City when he was paid for several weeks for not tutoring a child.
