Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category 19th Century Literature) for Monday, November 29, 2021 (Season 38, Game 56):
Its first line says, “The good people of Paris were awakened by a grand peal from all the bells in the three districts of the city”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Andrea Asauje, a podcast producer from Allston, Massachusetts
|Nishanth Iyengar, a resident physician from Ronkonkoma, New York
|Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California (8-day total: $295,200)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy Schneider comes into a new week of Jeopardy! play with eight victories and nearly $300,000 in winnings. Those numbers will be very intimidating for new players coming in this week; how will Nishanth and Andrea react? Whether they can keep it together may go a long way to determining who wins today.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Correct response: What is The Hunchback of Notre-Dame?
More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is an iconic work of French literature, published in the 1830s (and set in 1480s Paris) by Victor Hugo. It was written specifically to preserve the Gothic architecture, such as Notre-Dame, in Paris at the time. Quasimodo, the protagonist, is a hunchbacked ringer of the famed bells at Notre-Dame. The work has been adapted into film many times, including a 1996 Disney animated film.
Hugo was successful in his efforts in that Notre-Dame de Paris became a national icon in France; it is currently being reconstructed after a fire in 2019 made world headlines.

Andrea is the “mother” of a 3-pound rabbit named Falafel.
Nishanth knows the Korean alphabet because he watched Korean dramas during the pandemic.
Amy was named “Most Likely to Appear on Jeopardy!” in 8th grade.
- Amy passes Arthur Chu for #9 all-time in regular play winnings and moves to #22 in all-time winnings (including tournaments).
- Amy’s score of $47,000 today is tied for 95th all-time in regular play. (taking doubled dollar values into account).
- I can’t help but think that Amy’s propensity to “just wager $4,000” on Daily Doubles is a nod to the 2015 April Fool’s joke that was created as a take-off off “The Final Wager”.
- This is the first game in Amy’s run where she has found all 3 Daily Doubles.
