Correct response: What is the Brooklyn Bridge?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Emily Roebling was responsible for the majority of the construction on the Brooklyn Bridge, a massive bridge across the East River in New York City. John A. Roebling was the original chief engineer, but died a few days into construction after he contracted tetanus. His son Washington Roebling succeeded his father as chief engineer, but then decompression sickness debilitated him and was essentially an invalid from 1872 onward. Emily became a de facto chief engineer, skillfully managing the interests of all parties involved and the bridge opened to great fanfare in 1883. Emily Roebling was first to cross, carrying her good-luck rooster as a symbol of victory..

Steve Moulds, to win:
2 games: 55.668%
Avg. streak: 2.256 games.
- This is only the third game this season that all 3 players got Final Jeopardy! correct; players now move to 43.93% on Final Jeopardy. (Last season finished at 54.33%.)
- Both Kris and Diana made Final Jeopardy! bets that were not particularly useful for the situation at hand. Kris should have bet at least $6,400 (but, really, everything is the play here) in order to ensure he has a faint hope in Final Jeopardy. Meanwhile, because Kris has such an incentive to bet everything, Diana really needs to make a bet that covers Kris’ doubled score. (Though, again, because she only wins if she’s right and Steve is wrong, she also has incentive to bet nearly everything, in order to maximize winnings if she’s correct).
