Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

Brasilia, founded on April 21, 1960 specifically to serve as the capital of Brazil, was planned by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer to move the capital to a more central location from Rio de Janeiro. It is similar to Washington, D.C. and Canberra that it is part of a federal district as opposed to a municipality.

  2. What was the clue for question “em”?
    Thanks

  3. Why did Corey lose $2000 on a question that was worth much less than that?

    • It was worth $1,000. To go from a correct response to an incorrect one, you lose the $1,000 you were given for being correct, and then the $1,000 penalty that you would have received had you originally been ruled incorrect.

      Had he just lost $1,000, it would have turned it into a non-event, which would be patently unfair for the other two competitors.

  4. The correct answer is Brazil “This country’s . . . ” is how it starts, therefore it is asking for the name of the country – right?
