One of today’s contestants, Cindy Stowell, passed away on December 5; she had competed on the show with stage IV cancer. Her friends and family will also appreciate donations on her behalf to the Cancer Research Institute.
Here’s tonight’s Final Jeopardy answer and question for Tuesday, December 13, 2016:
Final Jeopardy! category: CITY NAMES
Final Jeopardy! clue/answer: Cuba’s second-most populous city & a South American capital share this name that refers to St. James
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Cindy Stowell, a science content developer from Austin, Texas
||Garrett Levenbrook, a food executive from Montclair, New Jersey
||Tim Aten, an editor from Vermilion, Ohio (7-day total: $107,499)
What is Santiago?
Other things, beside the capital city of Chile, that are named after St. James:
- The brewery that produces Guinness Beer;
- The home stadium of Newcastle United F.C.;
- The current theatre home of Something Rotten!on Broadway.
Of course, “Santiago” is the Spanish name for James, Son of Zebedee, one of Jesus’ apostles. Other major Santiago places besides the ones in Chile and Cuba are in the Dominican Republic (known fully as Santiago de los Caballeros) and in the Philippines.
How did I remember all of the “named after St. James” stuff I listed above? It came up in LearnedLeague back in 2014.
Please remember, that if you were touched by Cindy’s Jeopardy! journey and story, that donations in her memory to the Cancer Research Institute would be greatly appreciated by her family.
