More information about Final Jeopardy:

Overall, there have been 27 amendments to the United States Constitution. While the “free speech” part of the 1st Amendment usually gets most of the press, it also prohibits Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise of religion (usually known as the Establishment Clause).

Ratified in 1865, the 13th Amendment abolished slavery and involuntary servitude in the United States (except as punishment for a crime).

Finally, the 21st Amendment (ratified in 1933) repealed the 18th; the 18th had prohibited the manufacturing or sale of alcohol in the United States.

Will there ever be a 28th amendment? Somedays, I feel as though you could not get 38 states to agree on whether or not the sky is blue.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • The Fantasy League Standings crawl in today’s episode showed the incorrect standings, having mixed up Colby’s and Pam’s totals today. Pam should have added 4 entries for a total of 25 (not 10 for 31), and Colby should have added 10 entries for a total of 38 (not 32).
  • Colby’s final wager was deliberately chosen as a Les Miserables reference.

  1. The 1st and 13th are pretty well known amendments. The hardest is going to be remembering which one repealed Prohibition. That’s not one you ever think about, or is ever in the news.

  2. Would anybody have guessed the number based on it being 35 years of Jeopardy? My guess is that the researchers purposely tied that in and if yes nicely done.

  3. Once again Brad wins. He has never lost to any human.

  4. Oddly enough, the phrasing gave me trouble coming up with the number 1. I think I got it in 30 seconds though.

  5. I knew Brad’s team would win.

    • I think Colby did too:) Looked like he was thinking: “$100,000 is a nice number…”
      I guess that has always been his game demeanor, though…

      • Going into the finals Team Colby must have known they were huge underdogs against Team Brad and Team Ken. Judging by their dancing when they scraped into the wild card game you would have thought they had won the tournament.

  6. Team brad played great very happy for Larissa who was one of my all time favorite players.

  7. Larissa was the MVP of the tournament.

  8. If the ratings for this tournament have been high enough, might we see the Jeopardy! All-Star Games Summer Tour? Coming to an arena or stadium near you… 🙂

  9. If they had a MVP award for the tournament it would have to go to Larissa…………she performed brilliantly

    • Brad knew what he was doing when he drafted her sixth saying that she flew some what under the radar. Steal of the draft. Other teams underestimated what a great player she is.

    Well done for Brad(again!) I have to say though, I was a bit disappointed that Buzzy’s team didn’t make the final round of competition…I really wanted to see Alex Jacob face off against Ken and Brad. He did face Brad in the preliminary round and held his own.

    • I saw Alex as a plus 1 on who Wants To Be A Millionaire a few years ago and was surprised and delighted to see him on that show. He knew the answer. Plus 1 replaced phone a friend & has to be in the audience.

  11. Usually watch on DVR…watching live right now….boy did Brad put this away quick in DJ!. You can hear Ken laugh when Brad hit that second Daily Double…he knew it was over.

  12. Brad Rutter seems like he would be a good replacement for Alex Trebek when he finally decides to hang it up. Brad moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and TV work.

  13. Andy any chance you can get everyone together and do a podcast about the whole tourney ?

  14. It was kind of a gimmicky FJ with the correct response of 35 corresponding to the season number (as Trebek and Karthik noted above). There’s also an opportunity for some confusion about whether they are using “state” to mean the government or the (currently) 50 states, which might require the 14th Amendment to apply the Establishment Clause to the states (there is some disagreement on this).

    Assuming it wouldn’t violate any laws or the rules of the show, I had the thought that perhaps they had two FJ clues ready to go and went with the gimmicky one when the scores were such that the positions of the teams were locked in.

    • Assuming it wouldn’t violate any laws or the rules of the show, I had the thought that perhaps they had two FJ clues ready to go and went with the gimmicky one when the scores were such that the positions of the teams were locked in.

      That would likely be a violation.

  15. They probably didn’t bother with a video of the strategy going into final because the placings were already determined. It was thoughtful of Larissa and Matt to go for the answer and not a shout out despite betting zero because this would affect fantasy standings. Jennifer did a shout out in game one. She may not have known the answer anyway.

  16. Don’t know if this has been mentioned yet, but according to CNN, Matt Jackson on Ken’s team is the son of Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is the judge presiding over the trial of Roger Stone! What a small world… might come up as an answer/question eventually!

    Wish Ken and crew would have won, but the Daily Doubles did them in.

  17. Looking at the fantasy totals, Alex Jacob is in 2nd and he didn’t even play in the finals. GOAT. No doubt in my mind 🙂

    • Alex Jacob played in 4 games (Team Buzzy) as he was in the wild card. Points are given the same way in every game. Team Ken and Team Brad also played in four games as they went to the finals after winning their first matches. Team Austin played in four games as they lost in the wild card the same as Team Buzzy. Team Julia played in only two games as they finished 6th in the first round. Team Colby lost their first match and then went to the wild card. They won it and ended up playing 6 games which is the most games played by a team.

  18. A detail I just noted upon watching this game again: the giant “35” next to Johnny was not present as Alex walked out on stage; it was there in the first game of the final. I wonder if any of the players noticed that and were tipped off.

    I think that with the show knowing this Final was in the wings, the proper thing to do would’ve been to remove the numerals either for the entire second taping day, or for the entirety of the tournament.
