  1. This must be European history week for Final Jeopardy. Three of the four Finals have been Europe based. The fourth, even though it was in the category “American Firsts” was based on the travels of a British ship. To me today’s clue is by far the toughest Final of the week, which you might expect for the finals. It would be great if they all get it.

  2. A trivia fact about the movie is there were no speaking parts for women.

  3. With scores like this today, tomorrow’s show is NOT TO BE MISSED!!!

    • That was my thought as well! The Coryat score speaks for itself. Maggie must be pretty impressive tonight.

  4. If you’ve seen the movie, it starts with Lawrence crashing his motorcycle and being killed. If you’ve seen the movie its an easy Final J. But the movie, even though a top 10 of all time, is not all that popular and is way older than any of the Finalists….

  5. Brad (not Rutter) | June 4, 2020 at 5:02 pm |

    Amazing that Meggie is in the lead after going all in and missing from 7600, and then missing fj. All 3 of these players are TOC worthy.

  6. Tough FJ as we got a triple stumper.

  7. Traci Werbel | June 4, 2020 at 7:33 pm |

    Meggie Kwai would make a terrific game show host!

  8. TIMOTHEE R PIERRE | June 4, 2020 at 8:41 pm |

    I find it amazing that they all missed this easy Final. Lawrence of Arabia’s death in a 1935 motorcycle accident is a well-known fact. Besides this is not the first time that this clue has appeared in a Final.

    • The easiest final jeopardy clues are the ones that YOU know. kudos you knew it. I didn’t.

  9. Do you have any idea why yesterday’s show (June 3) was rerun in the Denver market tonight instead of the June 4 semifinal? I’m so mad to have missed the competition between Will, Meggie and Ben!!

  10. The fact that nobody got the Final aside, what a great game. Everybody is still in it. One thing the tough Final will probably do is ensure whoever ends up in third place tomorrow will not exceed the guaranteed $25K. I can’t remember the last time somebody won above the minimum in one of these two-week tournaments.

    Few people know Churchill was obsessive about the use of the ampersand . . .

  12. TIMOTHEE R PIERRE | June 5, 2020 at 7:31 am |

    The Final Jeopardy to which I was referring aired of January 12, 2015. It read: ” Dr. Hugh Cairns, who tried but couldn’t save the life of this man in May 1935, became a pioneer in the use of motorcycle helmets.”

  13. Vader47000 | June 5, 2020 at 2:50 pm |

    So ABC7 in L.A., which preempted the June 3 game to cover an earthquake, showed that episode June 4. I suppose the final game might be on Saturday in L.A. unless there are more scheduling shenanigans like a stealth 2 am catch-up game.

  14. Being a movie buff (I write an online movie blog) I knew the answer before I finished reading the tenth word of the clue. I agree with MarkO that, of course, it is always easier when you know the answer. However, I was somewhat shocked that none had not seen what, arguably, is one of the greatest films of all time. If they had, no doubt they would have had the answer as the movie begins in 1935 with Lawrence’s tragic motorcycle crash and completed in flashbacks from there.

    • Gary Kevin Ware | June 5, 2020 at 11:30 pm |

      Just because you know the answer does not mean that it is easy. There are different degrees of complexity for the things that you know; 2+2=4 and the capital of Funafuti is Tuvalu. But as you said, if you know the answer right away, then it is easy for you. Other times, you might know the answer but have to search your memory. Although I generally like historical epics, and David Lean films, I am not a fan of Lawrence of Arabia. A previous comment stating that the movie is much older than any of the contestants is irrelevant. It is like saying that it is impossible to know ancient history because one wasn’t alive at the time. The only difference that age makes is one’s capacity to acquire knowledge. Since these people are on Jeopardy, they should know more than the average person and so for them to all get it wrong, and not even be close, for what I considered an ‘easy’ Final Jeopardy, is not good.
