It was a strange week where 3 Final Jeopardy clues ended up being played by only 2 contestants. We had 1 triple stumper and 1 dual stumper, and we had 2 dual solves. The Tuesday and Wednesday FJ’s were the easiest.

Jeopardy! champs for the week of February 27, 2017

Kirstin Cutts won her 4th game on Monday, but she was defeated on Tuesday by Rob Liguori. By the end of the week, Rob’s 4-day total was higher than Kirstin’s so there goes her chance in the next Tournament of Champions.

In Friday’s game, we loved the $400 clue in A SONG OF “YOU”: “Say this alternate title of a 2010 Cee Lo Green hit & you can remain on our stage.” You could hear Alex Trebek laughing after Trish Floyd gave him the right response. But 2010? — geez, it doesn’t seem that long ago!
