Final Jeopardy 10 4 21
The Final Jeopardy category is a popular one, especially with fans of the game show. It is an exciting round that usually involves a bit of luck, but in the end the winner of the round is the contestant who gets the answer right. This category has questions such as “Places in American History,” “Jewelry,” and “Star Wars” trivia. Typically, this is the only Jeopardy round the three contestants get to participate in.
Aside from the trivia, this round also provides a unique opportunity for viewers to participate in the game. Several actions are shown during the final commercial break, including producers walking on the set and making wagers. In the past, these were behind-the-scenes activities. However, a new rule makes this a more public activity. Hopefully, this change will encourage more people to play the game.
In the Final Jeopardy, the question that got all the attention was the question that arguably should have been answered by the first two contestants. On Tuesday’s episode, the clue was one that should have been easy to figure out, but was surprisingly difficult to come up with.
The clue, which was actually a bit more complicated than its name would suggest, involved a number of interrelated components. For example, the answer, which referred to Bible books and epistles, had to do with a surprisingly complicated topic. While the aforementioned clue was the only one that was actually correct, the rest of the answer was a big ol’ flop.
Other clues included the one about the smallest dollar amount that had to be moved, as well as the clue about the most expensive car to drive in the United States. These are not necessarily the most important ones, but they are fun to look at.
Aside from the most expensive car, the most complicated clue also had to do with the most obvious thing. However, in this case, the most obvious thing was actually the least important. So, a lot of experts are debating what the “jeopardy” is, since there’s no real stipulation in the rules of the game that a player must win the question.
Of course, it’s a little harder to come up with a better answer than the one that gets the most votes. For example, many people thought that Buttrey’s answer of “Philippiaes” should be the correct answer. If it is, this is the best clue that a contestant has ever seen.
There are a number of other things to be learned from the final clue. But the most important fact is that the smallest possible dollar amount should have been the answer. Whether this is the case or not, we’ll have to wait and see!
Until then, enjoy the game that has been a popular show for decades. And be sure to check your local listings to find out when this year’s contest will air. If you are not able to watch, you can still participate by playing along at home!
