Final Jeopardy: 11-9-15 to 11-13-15

Here are the Final Jeopardy questions and answers for the week of November 9 through November 13, 2015.

Mon, Nov 9 – Correct answers: 1
He was the first to have both fiction and nonfiction number one New York Times Best Sellers; the latter featured his beloved poodle. show

Tue, Nov 10 – Correct answers: 1

Fri, Nov 13 – Correct answers: 0
Famous mother of Pyrrha, who survived the great flood and with her husband repopulated the earth. show

There were mixed feelings about this week’s final questions during the first week of the 2015 TOC that left some of us fuming. Some thought that Wednesday’s clue was poorly worded and that the category was inaccurate. Thursday’s too-easy clue was just a jaw-dropper. How could they use that for a TOC final? There were a couple of other very easy picture clues (Reagan, Stalin) but at least they weren’t DDs or FJs.

In order of winnings, here is a repeat of the semi-finalist and wild card list of winners from Friday’s recap. We believe it means that Alex, Matt and Kerry will be in separate semi-final matches.

SEMI FINALISTS
$26,657 Alex Jacob
$24,898 Matt Jackson
$22,000 Kerry Greene
$18,000 Brennan Bushee
$17,600 Catherine Hardee
WILD CARDS
$19,400 Andrew Haringer
$16,599 Vaughn Winchell
$15,000 John Schultz
$14,000 Dan Feitel

What’s wild about those wild cards is that Vaughn and Dan were both in Monday’s game so we were already seeing half the wild card list when Catherine Hardee won that match. She was not the one who got FJ right though — that was Dan.

    I tried to watch the tournament of champions but Fri., Nov. 20, they showed sports instead. I would like to know who won 2015 tournament of champions.

    A little factoid I picked up browsing the Internet. Alex Jacob and Matt Jackson are Yale grads. Knowing Yale I’m sure its bragging about having 2 alumni in the semis of the TOC. Alex class of 2006 and Matt class of 2014.

    I’m really going to have fun watching these two in the semis knowing this.

    Thanks, Leena, I didn’t know that. Wow! Sorry I missed that tournament, but I was on vacation overseas, so it was worth it. :)

    Being that Catherine, Vaughn and Dan were already featured in one game, y’know what would be funny? If they were separated in the semi-finals, each won their games, and were re-united again for the finals. That would truly be a TOC to remember. :)
