More information about Final Jeopardy:

Construction of the Panama Canal took nearly a decade; the original plan was to build a sea-level canal across Panama. However, that was judged to be futile by the project’s second engineer, railroad builder John Frank Stephens. It was then decided to build an inland lake 85 feet above sea level which would be accessed by a series of locks. The canal finally opened to traffic in 1914 and it revolutionized world transportation, as ships no longer needed to go around South America to go between the eastern and western coasts of North America by sea.

  1. Not the most difficult FJ in my opinion, though Hoover Dam was certainly a reasonable guess.

    • I always thought a dam is kind of the opposite of a trench, no? There is usually a lake before the dam and a valley after it, but calling a dam a trench is kind of a reversal imo?

    Shoutout to Marshall for starting off the week with a come from behind win. I can’t say for sure but I think that Emma and Sirad are eliminated. I can’t wait to see the outcome of the next two weeks. I this the biggest gap between tournaments? The last tournament was the ToC which was in November.

  3. Soooo many wrong answers today, & kind of a tough FJ. Sad that after leading the whole game Emma likely won’t advance.

    Yeah, Emma deserved the W. But such is the nature of jeopardy.
