More information about Final Jeopardy:

“Shallow” is the hit Lady Gaga–Bradley Cooper duet from the 2018 version of A Star is Born. Not only has it spent considerable time in the upper echelon of Billboard’s charts (even reaching #1 on the Hot 100 following its Oscar win), but it was also an Oscar winner for “Best Original Song” (this version of A Star is Born‘s only Oscar). It also won two Grammy Awards (Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media), in addition to receiving nominations for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

The 2018 A Star is Born is the fourth version of that film to be released by Hollywood, with the previous three being released in 1937, 1954, and 1976. The 1976 version also won Best Original Song (“Evergreen”), while 1937’s won for Best Writing (Original Song).

Andy’s Thoughts:

    Good job Andrew. Let’s hope this week does not start another one day curse!

  2. Watched this weekend on TV “White Men Can’t Jump”, a 1992 sports/comedy movie that features the lead actress playing on Jeopardy!, with Alex as himself. Thoroughly enjoyed!

    • BTW, wish Andrew luck, but his Coryat of $2200 must be one of the lowest ever by a winner.

  3. Welcome back to our regular episodes; where the player who wins earns less money than the first-round losers in the college championship. Was hoping the break would get Jeopardy out of this rut, but nope. Andrew’s winning coryat was 2,600 though (not 2200).

  4. I hope the remaining 6 weeks of shows recorded won’t ALL be more of the low scoring same old-same-old as before the College Tournament.
    Is it possible they lowered the criteria needed in pre-tesring to qualify to play?

  5. Congrats to a new champ,Andrew! 9 unplayed clues etc….. A game to forget.

  6. Brad (not Rutter) | April 20, 2020 at 5:05 pm |

    Andrew’s final score was less than half of his total after the jeopardy round. Bring back Nibir!

    • Many players final score is less than half of he total after the jeopardy round. That’s what happens when you wager to win and get it wrong in final jeopardy.

  7. With a decent wager Ben would have won the game.

  8. When I see Bob Chang, Jason R., Howard, Sean L., Brad (not Rutter), and Tim Pierre actually ON Jeopardy!, putting their you know whats on the line, I might actually respect their opinions…as I do respect the Bens, Andrews, and Felicitys of this world, you know, the ones who actually “do”, instead of sitting behind a keyboard shouting how it “ should be done”. Jeez, what a bunch of whiny Monday morning quarterbacks.
