The Final Jeopardy question (11/14/2016) in the category “History Repeats” was:

This practice officially began in Pakistan in 1977, 44 years after an amendment ended it in the United States.

WHAT IS PROHIBITION?

Here in the USA in 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution repealed the 18th Amendment, ending Prohibition. Constitution Daily explains how the control of liquor laws was returned to the states.

Matador Network has a handy Guide to Drinking and Buying Alcohol in Pakistan, explaining how “alcohol was readily available until the mid-1970s when the Bhutto government introduced prohibition for Muslim citizens. Since then, Pakistan’s majority Muslim population has been unable to legally buy alcohol, and advertising for alcoholic beverages has been outlawed.” Only Pakistan’s non-Muslim minority are eligible to buy alcohol with a permit, they say, with more details on what that entails.

Connor bet $11,799 bet. He finished with $23,599.

Antonio bet $6,600. That brought him up to $20,000.

Lucia bet $800. She finished with $16,800. That made Connor the 4th semi-finalist and changed the Wild Card list, because both of today’s player now occupy the two top spots.
