Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Historic Documents) for Tuesday, November 24, 2020 (Season 37, Game 52):

One of the liberties listed in this: “No man shall be forced to perform more service for a knight’s ‘fee’…than is due from it”

(correct response beneath the contestants)

We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next few weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.

Today’s contestants:

Jennifer Rosenberg, a lawyer from Walnut Creek, California
Jennifer Rosenberg on Jeopardy!
Matt McDaniel, a director of programming from Los Angeles, California
Matt McDaniel on Jeopardy!
Henry Baer, a software engineer from Lafayette, California (1-day total: $31,000)
Henry Baer on Jeopardy!

PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to abide by physical distancing guidelines and when you are not able to do so, properly wear a mask. Ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

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 Magna Carta was signed in 1215 between a group of English barons and King John; John had been ruling England essentially by “force and will”, often taking arbitrary decisions. Angry at the constant increase in taxes that King John was fund unsuccessful wars in France, the barons began organizing resistance against the King, and the Magna Carta was the set of demands from the barons which became their peace agreement with King John. It is still seen today as the foundation of much of the common law system used in England and many former British colonies. The agreement was revised many times over the next few decades, with the 1297 version remaining in force today. The clause from today’s clue is from Clause 16 of the Magna Carta.

  1. I swear any time the correct response is a historical document and it’s clearly not an American one, it’s the Magna Carta.

  2. “Knight” and “Historic Documents” should make it a triple solve. But then again….ancient European history….??

    I don’t mean to be rude, but how come you’re not posting each week’s contestants anymore?

  4. I believe Henry is the first since James to win over $30,000 in each of their first two games, so congrats to him! Hopefully, he’ll continue to do well.

    • There was a champ named Ed Condon that won 30K plus 2 games in a row, but he lost game 3. Other than him, I think Henry is the first. Henry certainly seemed more comfortable with the buzzer today. I like him, and hope he makes it to 5 games.

    Given recent history, don’t bet on it Jason.
