More information about Final Jeopardy:

Amadis of Gaul is a literary work dating back to medieval times. The oldest surviving printed work of it dates to 1508. It became a well-loved series of literary works in 16th century Spain, to the point that many Spanish conquistadores used the series as inspirations for place names in the New World (one example being California, which has been said to come from Las sergas de Esplandián.)

The character was parodied by Miguel de Cervantes in 1605’s Don Quixote; Quixote idolizes Amadis.

  1. Congrats to Dhruv! Brown U is singing your praises (in the form of a question, of course).

    Can someone please explain to me why Drhuv won by answering Who That’s all folks! ? Thank you

    • There’s nothing in the rules that forces a player to answer Final Jeopardy correct to win the game.

      Dhruv’s score going into Final was so high that he couldn’t be caught by his nearest opponent. Thus, he chose to bet small and respond with “That’s All, Folks!”

    Andy, thanks! I got it. Thanks again for answering me. Kisses
