More information about Final Jeopardy:

Arizona’s first female governor was Rose Mofford, Arizona Secretary of State at the time who succeeded Evan Mecham, who was impeached and removed from office in 1988. Jane Dee Hull (who succeeded Fyfe Symington, who resigned after being convicted of bank fraud, a conviction later overturned), Janet Napolitano (who resigned to become Department of Homeland Security), and Jan Brewer served consecutively between 1997 and 2015.

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.)

  1. Given the date/moon landing anniversary, I am surprised that the FJ wasn’t related in some way to the Apollo landing

    A shoutout to Roey Hader, though bounced off the show yesterday, his 57 correct answers in 2 games is second only to Ken Jennings (61) and Frank Jackson (59) among the Ultra-Champs (10+ wins), even better than James’s 55. I’m guessing his 27 correct are the most in losing. But alas he’s not a Ultra Champ, just one and done, though his buzzer speed showed Ultra Champ potential.

  3. Congrats to yet another champ and have a great and safe weekend everybody!!!

  4. The clues were mean to Kathleen.

  5. Go Jason! He’s tried out nine times to get on Jeopardy and I hope he makes the most of it.
