More information about Final Jeopardy:

Shortly after becoming a kingdom in the early 18th century, Prussia became one of the great military powers, especially under Frederick the Great. By the 19th Century, the fall of Napoleon had increased the influence of the kingdom, and was united as part of a German Empire in 1871 by its Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck. Prussia was dissolved de jure in 1947 in the aftermath of World War II.

  1. Wow! Bizarre matchups for the semi-finals!

    • I don’t think these are bizarre at all?

    • I agree with Jason. The wild card with the highest score, paired with two commanding winners (more commanding than, say, Amanda’s or Meggie’s wins). This looks like the most difficult semifinal matchup.

      • The show has always attempted to create compelling matchups at all stages of tournaments. These matchups are in line with that and are thus not bizarre, in my opinion.

        • It just strikes me as unusual how the ToC & college semi-finals are much easier to predict, while the teachers tournament semi-finals are so different. I said Bavaria too for tonight’s final, so at least Katie isn’t alone.

        • If you have a “compelling” matchup at the first semi, then for the remaining 2 games only lower scores are available…I agree with Daniel and Jason. Imo the semis should be more evenly matched.

  2. The first 2 match-ups I think will be close & “compelling”, but Wednesday has Ben v Sam v Lauren, which is the top score against the two bottom scores, which doesn’t sound like a balanced SF match.

  3. Jason why don’t you just watch and enjoy the games instead of trying to be the big prognosticator of matchups.

    • Tou-she (I don’t know how to spell it). Jeopardy can be strange every now and then, but you’re right that it’s always enjoyable.

    HI – Alex suggest a movie about a stone today. Monday 6/1.
    Does anyone remember which movie he said on the show?

    • Alan Jones | June 1, 2020 at 11:45 pm |

      It was The Moonstone, by Wilkie Collins. I may have to give it a look-see myself.

      • Alan Jones | June 1, 2020 at 11:52 pm |

        BTW, Alex was talking about a book, not a movie. The Moonstone is considered an early example of detective novel.

  5. Andy you do such a fantastic job putting out this site, sorry I have to point out you have Will marked as a Semi-Finalist instead of Finalist.
