Correct response: Who is Tinker Bell?

Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, now including Jason Zuffranieri and James Holzhauer, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?

More information about Final Jeopardy:

Tinker Bell is the fairy in J. M. Barrie’s series of works about Peter Pan.

Here at The Jeopardy! Fan, I think this is a great Final Jeopardy! clue. The reference to “mending the pots and kettles” a.k.a. “tinkering” is a perfect tease-out metric to point towards Tinker Bell.

Peter Pan is a favorite topic of the show’s writers as well; back in 2016, the fact that London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital has the rights to Peter Pan was the subject of a Final Jeopardy.

3 Comments on "Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, June 25, 2020"

  1. This has nothing to do with today’s episode, but should be of interest to fans of the show. Hollywood writer Ken Levine (MAS*H, Cheers, Frasier) has posted the first half of a two-part interview with Jennifer Quail on his blog:

    Part two will appear next Thursday. It’s full of lots of behind-the-scenes information about what it’s really like to appear on the show. She even mentions The Jeopardy! Fan at one point. Definitely worth a listen.

  2. In the one letter category, when Alex revealed the question was “What is N”, for the Knight, he said they don’t know how to spell, but he should have said the K was already used for the King.
