More information about Final Jeopardy:

The Joy Luck Club, the title group of Amy Tan’s 1989 novel, is a set of interlocking stories surrounding four Chinese immigrant mothers and their American-born daughters. Jing-mei Woo’s mother Suyuan Woo founded the Joy Luck Club, which was a group created to play the game of mahjong.

The novel was later adapted into a 1993 feature film.

    Season 34 could have a potential season ending cliffhanger after Suzanne’s win tonight.

  2. Alex wasn’t feeling very generous with the Book of the Month category today. When it was clear the contestants hadn’t figured out each response was to be a month of the year, instead of reminding them, he rescinded his compliment about their brightness…jokingly of course…they never did catch on though!

  3. Alex was a bit rough on the contestants in the early going. . .

  4. Alex is feisty all around tonight.

    Hint: Today’s game is the 20th to last game of the season.

  6. freddie leonard | July 2, 2018 at 9:14 pm |

    Hint: It’s something very unlikely to happen but has potential at least for tonight.

  7. I had never seen the category Male and Female Words before tonight’s show and hope to never again. I found it confounding, as did the contestants seemingly.
