Today’s Final Jeopardy – October 25, 2019


Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category British History) for Friday, October 25, 2019 (Season 36, Episode 35):

In 2018 Parliament Square got its first statue of a woman, Millicent Fawcett, a founding member of the London Society for Women’s this

From October 19th through the 26th, Gamers vs. MS will be doing a 168-hour charity video game marathon in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, with an estimated 1 in every 385 Canadians living with the disease. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) that attacks myelin (the protective covering of the nerves), causing inflammation and damage. With that damage, nerve impulses can be completely disrupted. Currently, there is no cure. I took part in the relay on Wednesday night on my own Twitch channel, with the return of the Complete the List podcast.

Correct response: What is suffrage?


Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, now including Jason Zuffranieri and James Holzhauer, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?


More information about Final Jeopardy:

In contrast to the militant Pankhursts, Millicent Fawcett led a more peaceful approach to obtaining women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom in the early 20th century. While World War I halted the outward movements (with many believing Germany was the greater threat), behind-the-scenes lobbying of politicians took place during the war.

Women who met specific qualifications were granted the franchise in 1918 and was granted universally in 1928 in the United Kingdom (though Northern Ireland took until 1973 to grant universal suffrage locally).

Worldwide, New Zealand granted suffrage in 1893, and Canada extended suffrage to many women during World War I in order to obtain a conscription mandate (granting suffrage to war widows, women serving overseas, and the female relatives of men serving overseas), though Canada did not grant First Nations an unrestricted right to vote until 1960 (prior to that, First Nations were only permitted to vote if they gave up their treaty status).


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 $440 has been raised.)

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Anyone who disagrees with the judges’ ruling today on accepting “sufferage” should to listen closely to the song “Jet” by Paul McCartney & Wings; that song clearly pronounces “suffragette” as “suf-fer-ra-gette”.

  1. And again “foreign” and “politics” of sorts, though this should really be easy. But that’s what we thought yesterday. I hope we won’t set a record in terms of fewest correct FJ answers for 6 playing days in a row for regular FJ today.Especially since we have two female players on today’s show.

  2. Well, we end the week on a positive note.
    Have a great weekend everybody, stay safe and it’s the last weekend of DST. Starting next weekend most people on the mainland get an extra hour of sleep!!

  3. Spring forward, Fall back, but hopefully not for much longer… the time changes have never really made sense to me, but at least I get all my clocks reset to the proper time.

      But time change is not this weekend, but next weekend. It got moved to the first Sunday in November, which also means it still a bit lighter for young kids to go out on Halloween.

      • That’s why Europe is already changing this weekend. Halloween is no big deal there, but Nov. 1, All Saints’ Day is. It’s a federal holiday all over the place, especially very much observed in the catholic countries. Halloween is just slowly also becoming what it is here in Europe, but still very far away from all the tricking and treating. I think they should just settle on either DST or not and leave it that way everywhere. All the changes – especially when it’s not the same weekend on different continents – must be a nightmare for airline scheduling etc. etc…..Here we have the same time all year round, I guess we are just too far south to get any benefits from DST, so we are on standard time all year long.
        Either way, have a good one, everybody!!!

    • In 1973 Illinois stayed on DST until children were going to school in the dark. They went to Standard Time soon after that finding.

  4. Kris made a James-like FJ wager in a runaway. While only time will tell how he’ll do, definitely a good start!

  5. Brutal past 6 FJs, 4/18 for the contestants, although this septuagenarian didn’t think they were that tough, scoring 5/6!

  6. Jamie seems to have been done in by a frantic buzzer technique, pressing multiple times in rapid succession and getting locked out. That seemed to catch up with her as Kris suddenly went on a run in DJ. Looked like she may have beaten him on many of those clues had she calmly pressed the button once.

    • “Calmly pressing the button once” is a surefire way to finish third. There are a number of former contestants here that frequent the comment section who will attest to what instructions are given by the contestant co-ordinators when it comes to buzzer technique.
