Quick Recap & Today’s Final Jeopardy – November 16, 2016

Here’s tonight’s Final Jeopardy answer and question for Wednesday, November 16, 2016:


Final Jeopardy! clue/answer: In a British novel this young character’s last words are, “Which is better–to have rules & agree, or to hunt & kill?”

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

Lily Allingham, a sophomore from Wilmington, Delaware
Lucia Geng, a junior from Great Neck, New York
Sharath Narayan, a sophomore from Madison, Alabama

Click/Tap Here for Correct Response/Question

Who is Piggy? (from “Lord of the Flies”)


Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.


Shortly after Piggy utters these words in William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, Roger shoves a rock down the mountainside. The boulder strikes Piggy, shatters the famous conch from the novel, and knocks him off the mountain to his death. The tribe of children descends into chaos.

I have a feeling that someone somewhere is going to make the comparison between Lord of the Flies and Trump’s America.

    Andy, Are you not showing the boards with the clues, etc. anymore?

    • Andy Saunders | November 16, 2016 at 6:14 pm |

      Hi, Sheryl!

      Sometimes I will post categories here if I think there’s something noteworthy or fun that gets played. Was there anything you’d like to see featured from this episode?

      If you mean the full board sets, do you mean the other project I contribute to occasionally, J! Archive? I’ve never put full boards here on TJF 🙂

      (And I did notice that J! Archive got derailed slightly by election coverage. I’m sure we’ll catch up soon!)

  3. Do you know if we see this year’s Teen Tournament winner be in the next Tournament of Champions?

    • Andy Saunders | November 16, 2016 at 7:56 pm |

      Anything’s possible, I guess, but the Teen champion hasn’t been invited to the Tournament of Champions in many years. I know Keith has been stumping for it over on The Final Wager, so I’d put the chances at greater than zero, but I’m also not going to put the champ on the ToC Tracker unless Jeopardy! does on its own site.

    Lucia answered one of her questions wrong during the episode. She answered Mary Antoinette, should have been : Marie Antoinette. Very surprised it was not caught during the show.

      I disagree with your assertion.

      Supposed mispronunciations (akin in this case to putting the emphasis on the first syllable instead of the second) do not get ruled incorrect if they could feasibly be spelled the same way as the correct response, as per the rules of the show which all contestants are briefed on beforehand. Similarly, misspellings in Final Jeopardy are only ruled incorrect if they change the pronunciation.

      In this specific case, the word “Marie” sounds identical to “Mary” if you emphasize the first syllable instead of the second; thus, they are considered equivalent.
