More information about Final Jeopardy:

Homer only wrote of a single Gorgon, a monster of the underworld; later, Hesiod increased it to three: Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa. Medusa is well-known for her hair of snakes and for being the only mortal Gorgon. when Perseus slew her, her severed head had the power of turning those who looked upon it to stone.

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.)
