Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.


Edward I (House of Plantagenet) ruled England from 1272 to 1307. He is most commonly known by the nickname Edward Longshanks, a reference to his height, but Factacular tells us he had many other sobriquets: Hammer of the Scots, Scotland’s Scourge, Father of the Longbow, the Warrior King, the Father of the Mother of Parliaments and, the one in today’s clue– the English Justinian.

Phyllis picked Henry I (nickname: Beauclerc). She lost everything but a dollar.

Chantelle had the same response. She lost her $16,250 bet, leaving her with $250.

Bala got it right. He bet a whopping $16,300 and became the new Jeopardy! champ with the winning total of $33,000.

    If Chantelle had been right and had bet it all, she would have tied Bala. He should have bet $1 more than he did. Actually, Chantelle should have bet just enough to have more than Bala and hope he was wrong. So they both made wager mistakes, but it did not matter since only Bala had correct FJ.

    Chantelle was a bit off her game today but still it was a valiant effort. Congrats to bala on getting the lone solve. I wonder if we would have a repeat big payday tomorrow for Bala just like Hunter Appler did in his games, VJ?

    52/61 here. They completed all the clues despite a Clue Crew category on today’s episode(Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.). Bala wagered for the tie if CHantelle went all in, which didn’t happen as CHantelle didn’t quite go all in but she didn’t get FJ! right anyhow.

    Another big payday today.
