More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The “William Tell Overture” is the famous 12-minute overture from the Rossini opera William Tell. “March of the Swiss Soldiers” is the final part of the piece and the part that most listeners are familiar with. It’s this part that was used most famously as the theme song to The Lone Ranger; however, the tune is ubiquitous in American popular culture. Interestingly, the overture shares very little thematic elements with the opera itself; pressed for time before the opera’s opening, Rossini took the overture from Elizabeth, Queen of England and re-used it for William Tell.

- Poor Carlos; the Internet is going to have a field day. LET IT ROLL $600 read ‘Alexa, play “Never Gonna Give You Up” by him; he sang it with Foo Fighters in 2017 & you’ve been him-rolled!’; unfortunately, Carlos responded with “Who is Dave Grohl?”
- On the flip side of this, props to Carlos for his knowing that an $800 Daily Double in Double Jeopardy was probably going to be easier and taking full advantage of the situation.
