Who are the Lapps/Sami?


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.

The Sami people, commonly known in English as the Lapps, inhabited the area of the far north of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia’s Kola Peninsula. Much like “Eskimo” among North American arctic indigenous, though, “Lapp” is often seen as a pejorative term amongst the Sami.

  1. Scores going into Final:
    Jon $14,600
    Susan $8,000
    Josh $4,400

    Final results:
    Josh $4,400 – $4,400 = $0 (Who are the Inuit?)
    Susan $8,000 + $7,995 = $15,995 (Who are the Laplanders?) (1-day total: $15,995)
    Jon $14,600 – $1,401 = $13,199 (Who are the Finns/Oulo)

    †”Laplanders” or “Lapplanders” is equivalent to “Lapp” and, thus, Susan’s response was correctly accepted by the judges.

  3. I hope Jon wins tonight. He’s enjoyable to watch 🙂

    Jon Eisenman is the first 5+ time champion since Scott Lord nearly two years ago to lose on their sixth game.

  5. PriceRight89 | July 7, 2017 at 8:06 pm |

    And Rob Liguori is officially out of the running.

  6. Goodbye rob ligouri looks like Todd Giese gets the boubble slot now. Hope Tim kutz can hold on to that last spot he’s looking good but we’ll see. I’d love to have both him and Tim aten so it’s 2 Tim’s

      I hope Jon Eisenman is the last 5 time champion before the Tournament of Champions.
