Who is Beatrix Potter?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

According to this article from the BBC, Beatrix Potter sent the story to her publisher in 1914, but interruptions (World War 1, her marriage, and her illness) got in the way of its completion. It was discovered by a publisher after reading a 1970s Potter biography, was illustrated by Quentin Blake (well-known for his work illustrating Roald Dahl), and was published in 2016 as part of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Potter’s birth.

  2. Did anyone else notice Annie wave ” bye bye” to Todd just before final jeopardy

    • Andy Saunders | March 9, 2017 at 4:16 am |

      That was absolutely, completely, 100%, not a good-bye wave.

      Todd had just congratulated Annie on her victory and Annie was waving a thank-you in reply.

      Todd spoke to this on J! Board.

  3. Dal Higbee | March 8, 2017 at 9:28 pm |

    Todd is the reason why it was an up and down game today.

  4. Bob Timmermann | March 9, 2017 at 2:24 am |

    Not a big deal, but the city John Paul is from is La Verne. They make it a point to use two words in the name.
