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.

Jeopardy! champs for the week of May 29, 2017

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.

Hollaback Girl: Jon Groubert got a big kick out of this clue. More clues from this Lyrical Spelling Bee category are over here.

This week, Wheel of Fortune payouts were higher than Jeopardy! every day except Friday!
