None of the FJs totally stumped all the players this week and all of them got Wednesday’s, the game where Trebek thought the leader won but had to quickly correct himself! So that was definitely the easiest clue of the week. Monday’s clue really wasn’t hard for fans of the author or for Jeopardy! fans who recalled prior clues about his scholarly pursuits.
We began the week with 2x champ Jon Groubert. He became a 3x champ that day but lost to Kerry Benn on Tuesday. Joe Nguyen took over on Wednesday and was a 3x champ by Friday. Joe has already surpassed Rob Liguori’s 4-game total, so all he has to do is win next Monday to get that last spot on the ToC list.
