Final Jeopardy: 9-21-15 to 9-25-15

Here are the Final Jeopardy questions and answers for the week of September 21, 2015, as we finish up the second week of Season 32.

The players were totally stumped by two clues this week and Wednesday’s game produced the only triple solve. We thought that Monday’s clue was the week’s easiest. Thursday’s was definitely the hardest. Misleading, to boot.

Jeopardy Champs: September 21-25, 2015

2x champ Natalie Lips won her third game on Monday but she was defeated the next day by Dylan Parson. He won two more games and was defeated on Friday by Matt Jackson.

In the meantime, Alex Trebek didn’t let anyone forget about the relatively low winning totals from 2 of Dylan’s games. That’s okay, though. Dylan’s $29,799 plus Friday’s $2K consolation prize average out to almost $8K per match and these games were taped in one day. It may seem like a paltry payday to Trebek, but some of us wouldn’t mind making half of that in one day!

Here is the “Couldn’t Think of a Rhyme” category from Thursday’s game. Someone would have nailed the Beatles question in a Super Jeopardy! match. :-)

    Thursday’s clue was convoluted, at best. There are various ways to get the contestants to arrive at Cordon Bleu. That was not one of them.
