Jeopardy! tweeted video of Julia’s chat segment where Alex offered to invest in her future lunch truck business. She will primarily serve dumplings (mmmmmm!) and call it The Dump Truck:

Meghan talked about her unusual middle name. Her parents made it up from the first names of her grandmothers: Dorothy (Happy Birthday!) and Florence. Whenever Meghan complained about it, her parents would say “It could have been Florothy.”

Ken related how he helped pass legislation to protect manatees while working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife agency. He was the primary author of the regulations that created low speed or “no wake zones” in Florida to help avoid manatee-boat collisions. Alex Trebek said the manatee was one of his favorite animals. (Remember his favorite favorite is the musk ox).

    Thanks for adding the chat notes, VJ. Julia is very sweet, glad that she won, although I do admire Ken for his work in helping to protect the manatees.
    Also, you made an interesting point about Juliet “Capulet”. and being married to Romeo at the end of the play.

      You’re welcome. I liked Meghan’s chat story too. Her portmanteau middle name came up during the same week we had a portmanteau in FJ
