Final Jeopardy: Business
The Final Jeopardy question (5/12/2015), in the category “Business” was:
These 2 American businessmen are seen here in early 20th century photos.
Game 2 of Celebrity Week features astronaut, Mark Kelly, playing for Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, TX, where they helped his wife, Gabby Giffords (in the audience), recover from the attempt on her life; entrepreneur, Kevin O’Leary, playing for the Martin P. Soloman Medical Education Scholars program; and Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, playing for the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).
Round 1: Mark found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “Forebears” under the $600 clue. He was in the lead with $2,600, $400 more than Aaron in second place. He bet $400, and he was RIGHT.
For the Gagudju & other aboriginals of this country, “the dreaming is the time of their ancestor spirits”. show
Mark finished in the lead with $3,000. Aaron was second with $2,200 and Kevin was last with $1,200.
Round 2: Aaron found the first Daily Double in “5 Bears” under the $1,200 clue. He was in the lead with $11,800, $3,200 more than Mark in second place. He bet $3,000 and thought it was IBM. That was WRONG.
Steve Wozniak left Cal to co-found this computer company but returned in 1981. show
Aaron found the last Daily Double in “Shark Tank” under the $1,600 clue. Still in the lead with $10,800, he now had $2,000 more than Mark in second place. He bet $2,000 and he was RIGHT.
1/3 of shark species are near extinction, partially due to the human appetite for the soup named for this shark part. show
Aaron finished in the lead with $12,800 and Mark was next with $8,600. Kevin was in the hole for $2,800 but was given $1,000 so he could still be in Final Jeopardy!
NONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
Harley-Davidson has quite a photo gallery of early models online. For this recapper, at least, the photos were hard to see and you could see the players leaning in to get a better look. (The photos were one on top of the other on TV, not side by side). Trebek seemed absolutely amazed that the players did not immediately recognize the vehicles as motorcycles.
Kevin thought it was the Wright Brothers. He bet and lost that whole $1,000.
Mark wrote down “Ford and Pontiac.” He lost half his score and finished with $4,300.
Aaron wrote down Ernst & Young and that cost him $4,401. But he had $8,399 left and that was the top score. The MACC Fund will receive the $50,000 prize.
There is a guarantee of $10,000 for the charities of second and third place that didn’t kick in yesterday when all the players exceeded that amount. But it kicked in today for the charities that Mark and Kevin played for.
Hey! They are putting up the post-game chats this week. We put the video from yesterday on that recap and here’s today’s post-game chat.
