Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, now including Jason Zuffranieri and James Holzhauer, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?

More information about Final Jeopardy:

The U.S. state of New Hampshire is named for the English county of Hampshire, which sits in the south of England on the English Channel, southwest of London, directly to the north of the Isle of Wight. Major Hampshire ports include Southampton and Portsmouth; which, interestingly, matches the name of New Hampshire’s major coastal city (Portsmouth, New Hampshire). New Hampshire has the shortest amount of coastline; Delaware has the second-shortest (even though the coastline paradox leaves for ambiguity when it comes to attempting to accurately measure the length of a coastline).

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Kyle is the first defending champion to not make it to Final Jeopardy! since January 24, 2019.
  • Something I’ve noticed: The interviews tend to run longer when there are only two players in Final Jeopardy. This would be by design, as having to reveal only two responses instead of three in Final does take less time, which means that less of the interviews need to end up being cut.

  1. There are weather-related pre-emptions in Alabama today; results will not be posted until the show airs.

  2. I had the strangest feeling yesterday that Kyle might lose today.

  3. Congratulations, Leanne, the 7 champion in as many days. At least everybody of the remaining players got FJ right. The DDs…..well, Kyle dug a hole with his first one and couldn’t get out anymore.

  4. Am I correct in saying that the last champ not to make FJ was Rachel Paterno-Mahler? I don’t know why, but I had a feeling someone would be in the red today.

  5. Sorry that the clues were mean to Kyle.

  6. This is now 7 straight episodes with a new champion & nobody winning back to back

    What’s the longest streak without a back to back winner you can find? Any more then 7?

    As a New Yorker who went to Maine every summer with parents, I got the answer right away. You barely got into New Hampshire before you were in Maine. The long drive afterward was a twisted mess of rocky coastal roads because the big highway moved inland.

  8. Michael Schwartz | March 31, 2020 at 8:11 pm |

    Kyle finished -$2400 tonight. What is the record for the greatest negative total for a defending champion after DJ? For any player?

  9. The DDs were not Kyle’s friend today.

    Leanne was just confidently running circles around those 2 guys. I hope she stays a while.

    A solid effort by J.R. from J.P. (as the Boston neighborhood is commonly known in the area), but it was not to be. Good to see him answer four of the five sports-related clues correctly, though!

  11. Poor Kyle becoming the first returning champ this season to wipe out in Double Jeopardy and not play in Final.

    Speaking of which, When was the last time that a Jeopardy contestant came back as a returning champion only to wipe out before Final J! on their next game?

    Anyone else having problems seeing part or all of Jeopardy? Every time it is suppose to come on it gets pre-emerged. And the. when it is suppose to come back on, the whole episode doesn’t get aired. This happened for the March 31 Tuesday show which aired in Peoria at 12:37 am April 1

  13. Shirley Fleming-Jones | April 1, 2020 at 3:31 pm |

    Follow up comment. Sorry about typos should have been preempted and then word should have been then not the.
