  1. The male teacher contestant misspelled the final answer!!!!! He wrote “panarama “!!!!!!! The younger female won that final question!!!

      This comment leads me to believe that you failed to read this post.

      As the post above states:

      (Chris’ spelling of “panarama” was accepted as its misspelling was judged not to alter the pronunciation of the word.)

      This is a standard rule for the program.

        More technically: The second vowel sound in “panorama” is a schwa and thus could be represented by any vowel and still be rendered correct in Final Jeopardy.
