The Final Jeopardy question (10/23/2015) in the category “Flowers” was:
The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left
It’s the third match for 2x champ Dennis Golin. His winnings now total $59,099. Can he keep it going today? His opponents are: Sean Anderson, from Champaign, IL; and Becky Sullivan, from Kansas City, MO.
Round 1: Becky found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Black & White” under the $1,000 clue. She was in second place with $1,200, $3,000 less than Sean’s lead. She bet it all and thought it was a black-footed ferret. That was WRONG.
Sean finished in the lead with $5,600. Dennis was second with $2,200 and Becky was last with $1,200.
Round 2: Sean found the first Daily Double in “European History” under the $1,600 clue. He was in the lead with $8,400 and had $4,600 more than Dennis in second place. He bet $2,000 and thought it was an earthquake. That was WRONG.
Because of this natural event in Southern Italy, London replaced Rome as the host of the 1908 Olympic Games. show
Dennis found the last Daily Double in “High Tension Lines” under the $1,600 clue (asking for the name of the film, per Alex). Despite an earlier $2K setback, he was in second place with $11,000, only $1,000 behind Sean’s lead. He boldly made it a true Daily Double and thought it was “The Apartment”. That was WRONG.
“What am I supposed to do? You won’t answer my calls. You change your number… I’m not gonna be ignored.”. show
Sean finished in the lead with a runaway $15,600. Becky was next with $6,000. Dennis was in the hole for $400 and out of the game. He only picked one clue after that “Go Big or Go Home” strategy failed and he missed that too.
Only ONE out of the two left got Final Jeopardy! right.
Garden Guides.com has “The History of the Bleeding Heart Plant,” a perennial native to Japan” that “hangs like a drop from the red petals and its shape suggests the bleeding heart image. Gardeners often tell stories and legends about this plant’s meaning. Most center on a tender or bleeding heart.
Tom Paine’s Ghost.com suggests that the origin of bleeding heart liberal may be from “a semi-religious medieval organization called the ‘Order of the Bleeding Heart.'”
Becky thought it was a pansy. Before her response was even shown, Alex said “I have a feeling that you may have found a way to insult liberals in this country,” confirming once and for all that he can see those answers before they are revealed.
She bet and lost it all but everyone had a good laugh, including Becky.
Sean got it right. He added $3,599 and became the new Jeopardy! champ with $19,199.
