Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
“Prince Edward and his little brother the Duke of York (often referred to as “the princes”) are the young sons of King Edward IV and Queen Elizabeth. Unfortunately for them, they’re also the nephews of Richard III. Prince Edward (not to be confused with Lady Anne’s first husband, Prince Edward) is the rightful heir to the throne, which makes him a major threat to his uncle Richard, who wants to be king. These two little guys are witty and precocious – especially Edward. He knows it’s a bad idea for him to stay at the Tower of London before his coronation . . . Still, Prince Edward is just a little kid, so he’s no match for his uncle.” (Shmoop: Richard III – The Young Princes)
Travis wrote down “King Lear.” He bet everything but $1.00 so he finished with $1.00.
Kaya came up with “Macbeth.” She bet everything and finished with nothing.
Kerry got it right. She bet $3,600 so she won this match with an even $20,000. Her 6-day total is $146,598.
During the chat, Kerry and Alex talked about traveling some more and trying out the wines of different lands.
