Quick Recap & Final Jeopardy – December 9, 2015

So, in light of the Internet going gaga over Liz earlier this week, Kerry Greene suggested the following:

I thought it was amusing, but the idea seems to be gaining traction!

Onto the show. Today’s contestants:

Jon Lubbers, a mechanical engineer from Lafayette, CO
Bianca Howard, a waste reduction specialist from Cary, NC
Alex Maggio, a writer from Cincinnati, OH (1-day total: $15,100)

Quote of the day definitely went to Jon, when he decided that “What’s a dead hunchback”? was the best way of responding to this clue instead of “dead ringer”, under WORDS & PHRASES: An exact duplicate, not a deceased Quasimodo, it was a horse switched for another to defraud bookies

I didn’t find a problem with the clue, but others did:

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Alex $19,600
Bianca $12,600
Jon $8,400

Final Jeopardy! category: DOG BREEDS

Final Jeopardy! clue: This small breed is named for a member of the 17th century House of Stuart

Correct Response

What is the King Charles Spaniel



Jon 8400 + 8399 = 16799
Bianca 12600 – 7001 = 5599 (Papillon)
Alex 19600 + 5601 = 25201

(A big fat nope for me today on Final. I went for the Jack Russell Terrier. This may have helped:)
