More information about Final Jeopardy:

Founded in 1882 to serve as the seat of government for Canada’s North-West Territories on a site then known as “Pile-of-Bones”, it was named Regina by Princess Louise in honour of Queen Victoria. In honour of this, Victoria Avenue is the main east-west street of Regina and Albert Street is the main north-south street. City Hall sits on Victoria about a block and a half east of the intersection with Albert, and the Saskatchewan Legislative Building is a number of blocks south on the beautiful Wascana Lake (created just after Regina’s founding by damming Wascana Creek).


Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $370 has been raised.)

Tournament of Champions projections:
With a projected 65 regular-play games to go prior to the Tournament of Champions cutoff, after 500,000 simulations, our model shows:
An average of 2.0158 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.1665).
An average of 3.5717 4+-time champions (standard deviation 1.4172).

An early cutoff took place 0.267% of the time (or a 5-game winner will be left out).

Brendan Roach qualified 40.185% of the time.
Eric R. Backes qualified 87.393% of the time.
Anneke Garcia qualified 63.279% of the time.
Lindsey Shultz qualified 28.814% of the time.
Dave Leffler qualified 6.169% of the time.


Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Steven’s bet of $4133 in Final Jeopardy is likely a reference to the Philadelphia Eagles beating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII.

  1. Very specific and Canadian-friendly FJ today. What’s the name of the bagel shop next door?

    • Not really…Victoria and Albert are pretty strong clues leading to the Canadian capital named for the queen.

  2. @AQndy
    The correct response seems to be REGINA, Saskatchewa. ADRESS:2476 Victoria Ave.
    Victoria’s city hall is at the corner of Pandora Ave. and Douglas Street, official address: 1 Centennial Square.
    Are you sure the right answer is not REGINA??

    Also, as Jim G. said, J won’t put the answer in the clue…??????!!!!!!

    • @Andy
      Never mind, still very early, just got up and saw only that the wrong answer won the game……sorry!!!

  3. Only nine Triple Stumpers.

    • = 15%.

    • I can sympathize with the contestants somewhat. I’m not bright enough to be on the show, but I usually get a lot more in DJ than I did tonight. If you don’t do crossword puzzles very often the “Crossword” category was tough. In the “If They Married” category you not only had to know both people, but also decipher some pretty wordy and convoluted clues in the few seconds contestants are given.

        I’m usually OK with crossword categories, only got one of those five. If they married was also a Tuffy. I got around 3/4 my usual score in DJ, after an average first round. Seems like they’ve been making DJ tough for in the past month or so, and I wonder if that might’ve been in response to James. Will be interesting to see if it eases back up in the next month and a half, before the end of the season.
