10 Comments on "Today’s Final Jeopardy – July 3, 2018"

  1. Has any Jeopardy! contestant ever offered a response that was off-color, politically incorrect, or offensive? If so, how was this handled by Alex Trebek?

    • Mark Barrett | July 3, 2018 at 7:25 pm |

      Eugene Finerman would try to slip in his brand of humor and on more than one occasion Alex would add a line about “no editorializing” which can be used as a search term in the Archive. It’s happened on more than one occasion and in person I heard the audience reaction to Tom Kavanaugh’s line about who makes Alex’s suits, during the 2000s portion of the BotD.

    • Well, there was that one response by Ken Jennings (“Tool Time” $200 in this game) that brought the house down…

  2. The Final Jeopardy clue was very disrespectful to the contestants resulted a triple stumper.

  3. There seemed like a higher than normal number of scoring changes today, or maybe because the last two were announced right before FJ.

  4. It was very unfair that Alex accepted Suzanne’s answer of “Trenton” after she had already incorrectly answered “New Jersey”. I believe he said “Yes, you got it in in time”.
    It doesn’t matter how quickly you correct a wrong answer, your turn is over once you give that wrong answer.

    • You are completely incorrect.

      Even Jeopardy’s website speaks to this point.

      Point 1 at https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/features/5-rules-every-contestant-should-know specifically says: “Contestants may change their responses as long as neither Alex nor the judges have made a ruling.”

      I went back and listened and she did say Trenton before Alex’s ruling. Thus, she did, in fact, get it in in time.

    • I agree with you, John. Alex clearly said “No” (which, of course, is a ruling) to her response of “What is New Jersey” before she re-answered with “What is Trenton.”

      • Bobby:

        The judges beg to differ, and they’re the ones in charge.

        When Alex says “Oh, you got it in in time”, it’s because the judges off-stage have signalled Alex to tell him to rule in the contestant’s favor — because they have heard the contestant correct make the correction in time.

        Also, I am not particularly interested in re-litigating this, as the judges have the ability to isolate audio. We, on the other hand, do not.
