    @jacob, I spent many summer weeks of my childhood at my Aunt’s apartment in Beach Haven, Brooklyn. Her landlord was Fred Trump. Later, he built Trump Village nearby. She lived in that apartment from 1958 to 1985!

    I didn’t think trump or Hoffa were good answers. Disney seemed obvious. Trump in particular would not hide his name … too egocentric! And the M. T. Lott pun … too clever. And in the 60s the trumps were not in fla. real estate … the father was building his empire in Brooklyn and queens. As for Hoffa … entrepreneur is not how I’d categorize him!

      @Babs, you are 100% correct. As a NYer I remember Fred Trump Sr. & his developer building in the boroughs. Great man but no way could he purchase 27, 000 acres in Florida if he wanted to in the 1960s. Donald Trump bought the 5 acre Mar-a-Lago in the 1980s in Florida. It was built by the cereal magnate Post family heiress in the 1920s.

      A little math would have helped William. 27, 000 acres require a lot of moolah. Today the Walt Disney company market capitalization has grown to about $150 billion and that includes all of its holdings which includes theme parks, ESPN, etc.

    Glad to see Nathan win…would hate to have seen his reaction if he had lost based upon his disappointment throughout the game when William beat him to the buzzer.

    VJ, all I could envision was your reaction when watching Nathan. Hope he takes a chill pill before tomorrow (I realize the show is taped but geez).

    Brandon? Hoffa? Bad break. This game should have been William’s but his Trump response was way off. Trump was still young when Disney purchased land in Florida.

      Oh okay, now I get it. lol. Trump was even 21 yet. Thanks, Jacob.

      Yes, Nathan could certainly use a chill pill. That wasn’t a good look today and it’s not gonna be tomorrow! And what was up with the way he was clapping?

      PS — That Winston Churchill category reminded me of that Lee Majors “Francis Gary Power” film again. They had actors playing Churchill, De Gaulle, Eisenhower, Khrushchev and Robert Kennedy in it.

        trump was 21 in 1967. Idk that you had to be 21 to buy land then, or if it could have been bought in his name. trump owns land in florida now. All in all, not a bad guess.

        • VJ says:

          True, Eric — the clue said the 1960s. Can’t speak for other places, but I know you had to be 21 for your signature to be legal on most anything where I was in the 60s. My brother got married when he was 20, and he had to get parental consent.

    You know disney was my favorite since I watched many of the films like aladdin, the lion king, bambi, etc. But who would select donald trump as a final jeopardy response? He has no interest in disney world when he already has a bunch of casinos, right VJ? Jimmy hoffa wasn’t a bad guess but trump, no way. I was disappointed that someone from my homestate of connecticut would miss this.
