More information about Final Jeopardy:

The practice of placing one’s “I Voted” sticker on Susan B. Anthony’s headstone became well-known in the 2016 election when thousands of Americans showed up at her gravesite on Election Day to pay gratitude to the American woman’s suffrage icon. Anthony was arrested on November 5, 1872, for illegally voting in that year’s presidential election. The 19th Amendment was passed nearly 50 years later.

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!

  1. I got it right but was really nervous about Elizabeth Cady Stanton, given that she is from upstate New York herself. I just figured they wouldn’t be that tricky outside of ToC play, though.

  2. John large $5k wager in the J! round DD helped make the game an early runaway.

    Good to see him promoting a good cause and seeing someone from my same County (San Diego) win!

  3. they like susan b anthony as a FJ answer…….. low stress question for me as i didn’t have many other names to offer as an answer. someone who actually knows about women’s history would have had more choices

    Glad all 3 got it; it’s sad when all 3 miss it. But I see that there were leftover questions, which usually means that contestants used up extra time not coming up with the right answer.

    • Frank Smith | January 23, 2020 at 4:42 pm |

      The leftover clues have been too frequent this week especially. Would it kill them to edit out down time during stop and stare Triple Stumpers?

    • And in addition we had 10 TSs by my count as well.And sometimes the first to ring in got it wrong, so the second one got it, also takes extra time, plus a couple of video clues. That all eats up time.
      Since it was a runaway – nice game John!- it did not matter, but often leftover clues could change the outcome in FJ!.

  5. Usually Alex is outstanding with pronunciations—but boy, did he ever butcher “Waupaca” today. It should be “waw-PACK-uh”, not the “WAW-puh-cuh” he said…

  6. I’m surprised John didn’t get a score correction after his answer of “Lisabeth Salander.” It should have been “Lisbeth.” Re Alex’s pronunciation, he ALWAYS mispronounces “Nabokov,” and it’s remarkable how often the name comes up.

    • I’ve been sitting here struggling to pronounce “Lisbeth” without a schwa between the S and the B, so I’m guessing the judges did a very similar thing in-studio and elected to accept the response.

      • Sam Kavanaugh | January 23, 2020 at 10:10 pm |

        It should come a little easier if you say it right after saying “Lisbon.” it’s likely that your brain is just so used to the name Elizabeth that it can’t not drop the schwa in there.
