More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2022 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The Medici family was a famous Florentine family who rose to prominence in the 15th century through the Medici Bank in Florence. The family ended up producing four popes (Leo X, Clement VII, Pius IV, and Leo XI) and two queens of France (Catherine de’ Medici and Marie de’ Medici). Their promotion of the arts, along with other Italian noble families, inspired the Italian Renaissance.

- This was a very interesting Final Jeopardy! betting scenario, one that I don’t think that J! Archive’s wagering calculator gets right. (At least not for third place.)
- Today’s episode was taped December 14, a couple of weeks before Betty White’s death. (I hope that the clue about her in TV DOUBLE TAKES being a Triple Stumper doesn’t go viral—this clue became much easier since taping.)
- Kudos to Lynde’s performance in Double Jeopardy, both for her True Daily Double and her comeback afterwards, picking up $6,000. I wouldn’t be opposed to Lynde returning in the Second Chance tournament.
