More information about Final Jeopardy:

In order to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ 1492 voyage to the Americas, both Genoa (Columbus’ birthplace) and Seville (the port city where his three ships launched from) held expositions. Seville’s exposition was the much larger of the two, seeing over 40 million visitors to its 531-acre exposition site, while Genoa’s mayor ended up resigning over the exposition after attendance and revenue figures were overstated.

  1. It was also the 500th anniversary of the Spanish Inquisition.

  2. Congrats to yet another champ! Kris’ outmaneuvered himself,betting that Andrea would guard against him and getting FJ wrong, but it did not matter in the end. Seems he was going for when the event happened and not the celebration 5 centuries later.

    With only 30 seconds to absorb all the FJ! clues and write down the answer (do they SEE it or only hear Alex read it?), it can be easy to make a mistake. At least the answer was short.

  4. I have a little issue with the $2000 INSURED BY LLOYD’S clue – Lloyd’s set up a signal station on this “canine” Canadian island & it was the first to hear of the Titanic’s sinking – since the island of Newfoundland wasn’t part of Canada until 1949.

    We’ve visited the little Titanic museum they have in St. John’s, although I think we saw a recovered deck chair at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. It’s been a while since we’ve been there, though.

    • It is today. Just one of the sometimes “ambiguous” clues. “…on this “canine” island which is today Canadian….” would have been better. The writers sometimes don’t exercise due diligence , not legally but to be precise. Let’s say they are from time to time a bit less exact than they should be.

  5. Anybody else trying to think what the momentous event could be that took place in 1520? 🙁

  6. I’m curious how many people were like,”Huh??”, when the Mandela Effect category showed up. I only know about it because it’s been mentioned on the overnight radio show, “Coast-2-Coast/am”, which deals with all manner of paranormal, extraterrestrial,…etc. phenomena.
