Another week where the FJ clue managed to stump at least 1 player, from Tuesday to Thursday. The bookend games (Mon an Fri) had only one solve each. Thursday’s clue seemed the easiest– a first line that says something time, something else time.

Jeopardy! champs for the week of May 1, 2017

Alan Lin returned on Monday as a 5x champ and won his 6th game. That was it for Alan, in regular play anyhow. He was defeated on Tuesday by Liz Fischer. She only got to play one more match when Ragavan Ramsubramani won the next day. Ragavan finished the week as a 3x champ, but we won’t see him again till May 22nd, after two weeks of the Teacher’s Tournament.

On Wheel of Fortune, no one won the Bonus Round on any day, but a couple of players got higher payouts than the Jeopardy! winners without that additional help.
