More information about Final Jeopardy:

NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, was founded in 1949 by several Western nations to provide collective security against the Soviet Union.

Article 5 with regards to NATO is the principle of collective defense. An attack against one ally is considered an attack against all allies, and it was invoked by NATO after the United States was attacked in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • This episode was taped in December, prior to the producers’ crackdown against shoutouts.
  • Because tomorrow’s scores in the main game can be doubled in Final Jeopardy, Avi’s effective lead over Ryan is $4,100.50 and his effective lead over Lucas is $4,700.

  1. We might see the U.N. as a wrong response. But the last time they really did something was in Korea and that was almost 70 years ago.It would have been today’s players granddads fighting there. Today the U.N. can barely come to a resolution and IF they do the one permanent member of the Security Council vetoes it (us, China or Russia). I’ll predict 1 correct, though the date is a big help.
    That article 5 is a little like the “Iron Pact” between Germany,Italy and Japan in WWII……..

  2. IF J! teen tournament scores were cumulative from last week & this weeks’ semis & day 1 final, Avi would be running away with $88,999 ($25,599 + $39,200 + $24,200), with Lucas far behind with $57,401 ($21,000 + $21,601 + $14,801) and Ryan at $36,899 ($19,301 + $1,599 + $15,999). Semi-finalists Jackson and Teagan would have $60,800 and $53,200 respectively for their two games if so.

  3. Well, Ryan picked the U.N., but because of his small bet he is in second place……Avi seems to be really the strong factor here. Barring a major disaster he will probably win, second is up for grabs. Lucas could have up to 5.600 more if not for that DD miss.

    • P.S.
      The first DD in DJ was a real softball. I can’t even count how often this or related items came up as clues in the last years…I bet Ryan wished afterwards he had wagered way more. But you never know with DDs OR regular categories. The categories can be named one thing and then be about something else entirely, at least 1 or 2 clues in them. Hindsight is always 20/20…

    • I wouldn’t be surprised if Ryan or Lucas suddenly got hot and won on day 2. I believe in last year’s adult TOC, the winner had $0 after day 1 but got hot on day 2 to win handily

      • yes, you never know. Avi seems to be to “heir apparent” right now, but all it takes are 12 categories (or 10) that play right into the hands of Ryan or Lucas, not to mention 1 or 2 substantial and correct DD clues.

    Avi dominated the buzzer through most of the match but Ryan came on very strong about midway in DJ. I think he figured out how to buzz in first and will be a very tough competitor in the final match. All 3 knew most of the answers and you can plainly see Ryan and Lucas frantically trying to buzz in but Avi beat them almost every time until late in the match. This is a great set of contestants but I still believe Ryan will win the tourney. Impressive for an 8th grader!
