More information about Final Jeopardy:
An appropriate clue for this Shrove Tuesday! Lou Groen, the franchise owner in Cincinnati, created the sandwich because his restaurant’s hamburger sales fell precipitously on Fridays during Lent. Groen’s sandwich creation was introduced nationwide after it won hands down in a sales competition over Ray Kroc’s Hula Burger (a grilled pineapple with cheese sandwich).
And as an interesting aside: A nearly identical clue to this was part of the J!6 set on February 11th (in the FOOD category that day.)
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, nearly $500 has been raised.)

- Daily Doubles play much easier than Final Jeopardy! clues do and I think that more contestants are starting to realize this. MacKenzie’s average Daily Double bet is over $5,000; she’s been able to turn an otherwise average Coryat score into dominating runaways because of this. (Sam Kavanaugh did the same in July).
