  3. Tonight the answer was ” Banana” and Alex so cutely said ” You are ripe”!

  4. I thought the Japan flag was white and red?

    • Andy Saunders | March 1, 2017 at 9:43 pm |

      Not sure what you’re referring to — Japan didn’t come up in the round tonight.

      • I believe he’s referring to a “Play J!6” from the Jeopardy! website that referred to Switzerland and other flags with red-and-white color schemes. I can’t recall the exact wording, but it may have listed three countries as the only ones besides Switzerland with all red-and-white flags, and the list may have omitted Japan.
