Final Jeopardy: 7-28-14 to 8-1-14
Here are the Final Jeopardy questions and answers for the week of July 28, 2014, with links to the full recaps. This was the last week of the 2014 Teen Tournament and the last week of Season 30.
This week, there were no triple stumpers in FJ and two triple solves, one on the last day of the semi-finals and the other in the second final match.
Jeff Xie and Alan Koolik finished in a tie at $54,200 and a tiebreaker clue was correctly answered by Jeff. He won the $75,000 top prize. “I knew that I had to get the Final Jeopardy! clue right, and when Alan also gave the correct answer, my jaw dropped because I knew we were tied,” Jeff said. “When the tiebreaker category – The Civil War – was announced, I was excited because history is a strength of mine. When I saw “Shiloh,” I knew the answer, and the rest, quite fittingly, was history.”
Alan won $54,200, more than double the guaranteed second prize of $25,000; and Cooper won $31,200, more than double the guaranteed third prize of $15,000.
