Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: FAMOUS LAST NAMES
Final Jeopardy! clue: The first woman space shuttle pilot shares this surname with a man on the 1st manned lunar landing 26 years earlier
Who is Collins?
Patricia 2600 + 0 = 2600
Ashley 9400 – 9400 = 0 (Aldrin)
Camille 10800 – 8001 = 2799 (Armstrong)
After the promotional consideration though, Alex came back! He said, “Our bad, folks. Today’s Final Jeopardy should have referred to the entire Apollo 11 mission rather than to just the lunar landing part of it. We feel that Ashley might have been disadvantaged and so we have invited her to return to play again later this week.” She’ll be back Thursday!
(Interestingly enough – we would have had two disadvantaged players had Patricia actually bet properly. That’s why you learn betting strategy, folks!)
Finally, I actually got the intended answer to this Final. I stumbled upon this fact yesterday!
