More information about Final Jeopardy:

The honey badger (named as such before its fondness for honey) is not afraid to get into a fight, which is particularly surprising for its small size (adult, about 11″ in height, 26″ in length, and about 35 pounds.)

Here’s a video of two honey badgers taking on six lions.

  1. Emma is the most winnable contestant that Jeopardy has had in years. GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Girl power! I know girls have won the Teen Tournament in the past, but has there ever been an
    all-female final before 2018, Andy? Congratulations to all three, each of whom know so much — and have such poise at such a young age. No matter who wins, be proud, young women!

    • FYI, from above:

      “Miscellaneous: This will be the fifth tournament where the finals is all-woman, after Season 5’s Seniors Tournament and Season 8, 15 and 28’s Teen Tournaments.”
