What are dimples?
Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Cheek dimples are often caused when your zygomaticus major muscle is shorter than normal. The indentations are caused by it pulling on your skin and it forming the indentations in your face. Chin dimples also exist.

I’ve known this FJ! for years. My sister-in-law was teased as a child that she doesn’t have dimples. LOL
I wonder if anybody with dimples will have them removed in order to strengthen their zygomaticus muscles lol.
It seems that in this season, there’s been a trend of attorneys that become champions. Asim Modi, Zoey Orol, John Avila, Emmett Robinson, David Rigsby (SSA Attorney), Liz Fischer, Jon Groubert, Joe Nguyen, Bala Kumar (Not sure if it counts because he’s a lawyer), 5-time champ Jon Eisenman, now Rich Blashka? I’m not sure if it’s a common occupation that seems to bring the brightest people.
6 time champion Hunter Appler was an attorney. We will see Jon Eisenman and him in the Tournament of Champions.
Also, we had only two attorneys in the last Tournament of Champions: 5x champs Dan Feitel and Scott Lord.
I was referencing to this season only. Not on a past season. Hunter Appler was part of last season.
As an attorney, I can say no we are not all bright. lol Unless, I’m the exception that proves the rule
This was a gimme, whether you know the name of that muscle or not. So no surprise that for a change we started with a 3/3 for the week.
Yes it was!
I seem to remember in the pre-show prep for contestants that the producers said the two most common (or was it most successful?) occupations were teachers and lawyers. They’d probably have a Lawyer Tournament if it were a more liked profession.
Holy Triple Stumpers, Zygomaticus!
What was the theme with the “Makes Sense” category? Just that the answer was not tricky?
Show about amnesia -> Samantha Who?
Mike Tyson’s cartoon advisor -> The Marquess of Queensberry (who invented the rules for boxing)
New Girl -> Character named “Coach” is the school coach
I was also a little puzzled about the category during the first couple of clues until a trend developed. I guess the thrust is that if someone doesn’t know the answer, once they hear it their response could be, “Oh. That makes sense.”
