Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Jeopardy.com got its New York Times Clues of the Day mixed up. Clue of the day last Wednesday matched RANKS & TITLES $800 on today’s game, whereas today’s Clue of the Day matched the Daily Double that Brad Rutter played last Wednesday (NOTORIOUS $400).
  • Austin is 14-for-17 lifetime in Final Jeopardy. To have him not playing a Final Jeopardy feels like a poor lineup decision — especially considering Roger is only 8-for-15 lifetime. We’ll see if it works out, but if this first round is any indication, things are going to be much easier for Ken.
  • I was very impressed with how Ben played that round; his 0 incorrect responses (and 2 rebounds) have put Team Julia in a very good position.
  • Things should be very interesting tomorrow with Matt vs. Roger on Double Jeopardy (though Team Julia did not release their lineup for tomorrow on today’s broadcast, or on Jeopardy.com.)

  1. At the top of the show Alex said the top three finishing teams will get $1m, $300k, and $100k respectively. What about the other nine players…are they making anything for just competing?

  2. Stephen Marino | February 25, 2019 at 7:35 pm |

    On tonight’s game, one of the contestants answered what to me sounded like “F A O Schwartz”, however the name of the toy store is “F A O Schwarz” (no “t”) and should be pronounced differently.

    • This comes up every time “Schwarz” vs “Schwartz” happens and Jeopardy! has historically ruled that the “Schwartz” pronunciation is acceptable.

    • I bet that there are even less people that have pronounced it “F A O Schwarzzz” than have pronounced it “Mozzzart”–the “secret” (most apparent specifically in the way most people have correctly become accustomed to pronouncing it “Mo-t-sart”) is that in German the letter “z” is pronounced “ts”–so, F A O Schwart(s)…

  3. Still very confusing with all these teams switching all over the place. It’s fun to see some of the all-time stars again, but the tough questions make me feel dumber and dumber, and they don’t seem worth remembering. Just turned 80 yesterday and “hangin’ in there” gets to be a familiar reply. Is Alex Trebek (78) going to retire soon and wants to have something very special on his watch?

  4. As soon as Austin got in the red, his fate pretty much was sealed. Ken just dominated the first round (Minus a few rough guesses), but still made it competitive with Ben sticking around for tomorrow. But yeah, Matt Jackson and Roger Craig…I can tell that this will be a Jeopardy! duel and determine who makes the right choices on the DDs (And gets them right) and who definitely deserves it more. My only concern is that if Matt Jackson dominates tomorrow, it’ll be a Jeopardy! massacre right there. Roger Craig is about the only best choice to outpace Matt Jackson. Seth? I’m not sure if that could bode well for Julia’s choice. But, based upon the choices the captains picked, I think trying to outduel Ken Jennings is basically a far cry of a chance to success. But holy smokes…this tournament is so complicated in so many levels, it makes the ToC look like a puzzle itself.

  5. Please refresh my memory.
    Was there a clue in re: ARGENTO on tonight’s 2/25 show?
    I appreciate the help.

  6. You are amazing. Thank you. I hate when I can’t pull up a memory of something that just happened.
    I asked because I just read a composer named Dominick Argento died this week.
    I could not remember why Jeopardy brought up an Argento tonight.
    Not the same Argento.

    Thank you again for your help.
