More information about Final Jeopardy:

These people all were accused of witchcraft in the early 1690s in the Salem witch trials. Giles Corey’s death was especially gruesome, as he was tortured to death by pressing as he refused to enter a plea. In fact, the nature of Corey’s death may have led some Salem residents to rethink their support. Many of the descendants of the wrongfully accused, including Corey’s descendants, received compensation from the 1711 bill.

  1. Way to go, Nathaniel – continued good luck to you!

  2. Probably the nth time that Salem is in J, even as FJ….

  3. Wow! What a turnaround from yesterday. 40K coryat! Nathaniel especially. Definite finalist potential.

    • John McCleary | April 7, 2020 at 12:44 pm |

      Unlike Marshall, I believe that Nathaniel will be a Finalist. With Marshall, I feel like it is too early to call

  4. Great score by Nathaniel! If he had wagered $0 for FJ, It’s likely at least 99.9% that he’d advance to Semifinals.

    • That is, Nathaniel was a virtual lock for semifinals had Kayla wagered enough to surpass $20,000.

  5. John McCleary | April 7, 2020 at 12:43 pm |

    Great win by Nathaniel today! These college students are getting higher totals than the last 2 weeks on Jeopardy. I wasn’t sure yesterday with Marshall if he was for sure Finalist potential. I think Nathaniel is definitely Finalist potential. Also, great Coryat of $40,000! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings.

    • Well, the material was rather easy, still 2 DDs missed. And Salem seems to be the default topic for J.DJ and FJ. I wonder how many ladies/gentlemen will be the 5 winners, if one gender will dominate this time around?

  6. All three were from Florida. I can’t remember a game where all three contestants were from the same state.

    Terrific win for Nathaniel — but don’t sleep on Kayla. Her total was none too shabby, and she showed a little””James play,” going for two $2,000 clues and answering correctly right off the bat. It will take some great play to knock her out of a wild-card berth.

  8. Can somebody explain to me the ruling on Kayla’s Daily Double response in the Double Jeopardy! round? The clue had to do with irregular heartbeats.

    • She mispronounced her response in an unacceptable way. Mispronunciations are acceptable if the mispronunciation would be a plausible way someone might pronounce the correct response phonetically. But her response did not fall into that case.

    • The word was arrhythmia. That should be pronounced with four syllables; a-rrhyth-mi-a. She said ar-rhy-them-i-a; and pronounced the third syllable with a long “e” like in theme. She made the word five syllables. In disallowing it, Alex told her she added a syllable. I wouldn’t be surprised if the taping was paused for a ruling. The good news is Kayla recovered from it, and will almost certainly get a wild card.
