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).

- 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.
