Final Jeopardy: 1-8 to 1-12-18
Here are the Final Jeopardy questions and answers for the week of January 8 through January 12, 2018.
If you missed any of the games, click on the date for the recap with the Daily Doubles and a triple stumper or two. More clues from this week’s games are on Fikkle Fame’s archive.
Wednesday’s FJ clue was voted the hardest of the week and it was the only triple stumper. There was a problem with Thursday’s clue that affected the responses enough to get one player invited back. We think it’s a tossup between Monday and Friday for the easiest clue.
Brandon Brooks returned on Monday and won his second game. He was dethroned on Tuesday by Lindsay Resnick. On Wednesday, Gilbert Collins became the champ and won every game the rest of the week. He’ll be back for his fourth game on Monday.
In a week where no one won close to $20K, Brandon’s $16,600 was the biggest payday. So no one got on the Top 10 Daily Payouts of the season.
Here is a video clip from Friday’s chat that Jeopardy! put up on its twitter channel, showing one of Gilbert’s sons in the audience. What a cutie!
