  1. Impressed that a financial advisor would know this Final Jeopardy! 👍

    • One of my nieces told me she would have had a much better gpa in high school if she could have just taken science and math subjects. Her bachelor and master degrees were both Industrial Engineering.

      • I prob would’ve too but also thanks to my English teacher, I do love reading! Those books he “made” us read were actually great and give me Jeopardy knowledge!😁

  2. Maybe he just got back from visiting the Statue of Liberty

    What a barn burner, the end of the DJ round really riled up the puppies. Give that man a basket of curds and a boot o’ Moon Man! Cheers bud!

    Alex may pronounce French with a flair, but someone should have coached him on the Norwegian word “regnskog,” meaning “rain forest.” I don’t expect him to use the Norwegian r or the tone 2 as found also in Swedish, but the G disappears in front of the N and a diphthong is formed with the E, between our long A and long I. The O is similar to our long OO as in pool. Norwegian is full of vowels including some with unfamiliar letters. Big contrast with some languages that have only 5. Lots of sneaky consonants, too.

  5. Looks like Lindsay was trying to wager to block out Kimberly in final jeopardy, but did her bet 1 dollar in the wrong way. Turned out to be a moot point.
