Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, March 31, 2022

Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Historic Places) for Thursday, March 31, 2022 (Season 38, Game 144):

Following a raid at this establishment in 1969, protesters confronted police by forming a Rockette-style kickline

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

Christian Souvenir, a senior intelligence analyst from Brooklyn, New York
Christian Souvenir on Jeopardy!
Evan Roberts, a chemistry teacher from Louisville, Kentucky
Evan Roberts on Jeopardy!
Jackie Kelly, a pension calculation developer from Cary, North Carolina (4-day total: $115,100)
Jackie Kelly on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: The very strong Jackie Kelly won her fourth game on yesterday’s show. Her game has been very strategically sound, and with her winnings total, she’s found herself at the top of the list of 4-day champions. Win #5 today will cement a spot in the Tournament of Champions, but Evan and Christian absolutely want to stop her.

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.

On June 28, 1969, the police attempted to raid the Stonewall Inn, a noted LGBTQ establishment in Greenwich Village in New York City. On this night, the raid did not go as planned—a scuffle broke out which turned into a spotaneous demonstration against the police, which included drag queens forming a Rockette-style kick line while staring down police in riot gear. The week-long demonstration galvanized the LGBTQ community and was seen as the start of the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in the United States. The first gay pride parades began a year later to mark the anniversary of Stonewall.

I also suspect that the subject matter of today’s Final Jeopardy is going to make the viewers who are on Twitter every day decrying “woke Jeopardy” uncomfortable. That’s not the show’s fault. This clue is about an important watershed moment in American history; if that makes you uncomfortable, well, some personal introspection might be required.

Game Recap:

Jeopardy! Round categories: Map Quest; In Memoriam 2021; Business Name Origins; Composers; Colleges & Universities; Everything From A to A

This game was very much a two-horse race, with Jackie and Evan both pulling out to a big lead over Christian—Evan being buoyed by picking up $2,000 on the game’s first Daily Double. Jackie performed the strongest after the break, jumping out to a bit of a lead after Single Jeopardy!, with Christian still in the red.

Double Jeopardy! Round categories: The Verb in the Novel Title; Time for Your Medicine; On TV in the Year 2000; Where the Streets Have a Name; She’s Only a Bird; In the Gilded Age

It took a very long time for the Daily Double to reveal themselves today—Jackie nearly had a runaway when she found the first one, but she only went for $2,000. Evan himself found the last one two clues later, and went for a still-conservative $5,000 on his. Both contestants being correct meant that we had a close game going into Final!

Scores going into Final were Jackie at $20,000 with Evan at $17,400 and Christian on the plus side at $1,000.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • A reminder as to why the show prompts for some incomplete responses and outright rules incorrect on others: In general, per the show’s rules, incomplete titles (like “Danube” instead of “Blue Danube”) are outright incorrect.
  • Link to the box score: March 31, 2022 Box Score

Final Jeopardy! betting suggestions:
(Scores: Jackie $20,000 Evan $17,400 Christian $1,000)

Jackie: Standard cover bet today is $14,801.

Evan: Your highest chances of winning today come if you bet between $5,201 (twice the score difference plus $1) and $12,199 (to still win the Double Stumper).

Christian: Assuming Jackie and Evan bet okay, there’s not much you can do. I’d bet $998 here—but whatever you do is fine.

  1. Michael Johnston | March 31, 2022 at 9:53 am |

    It was easier to remember this because of the news about the gathering there in support of the Ukrainian LGBTQ community recently.

    Current FJ streak – 1W

  2. I remember the 50th anniversary commemorations a couple years back – so else may not have remembered as quickly.

  3. I knew this one instantly and hope all three players do as well.

  4. I knew what the clue was referring to but could not bring the name of the establishment to mind


    • That was me for a long time, partly because I would always envision an actual stone wall and would have trouble remembering “Inn” vs “Club” or some such. I had never heard the “Rockette-style kickline” part — that is now going to help me envision it better, though even before today I’d already begun to always remember it is “Inn”.

  5. Michael Johnston | March 31, 2022 at 1:54 pm |

    Dang!😞 That 4-win wall again! 😠

    • When the Second Chance Tournament was announced the second week of Feb, the producers would have known if there were any 5-time champs (automatic TOC qualifiers) in the shows that had already been taped. I felt then there would be no 5-time champs through mid Apr or so. We know at least one spot in the Nov TOC will come from the Second Chance. Of course the show can set the cutoff for the next TOC anytime they want. It’s pure conjecture, but I don’t think there will be a 5-time champ in at least the next week or two. It’s pretty rare anyway, and I’m impressed there have been four 4-time champs in the last 5 weeks.

  6. It would have helped me to consider that this occurred in the age of Nixon. He was also associated with the word “stonewall,” but in a much different context.

  7. Unfortunately, sir, “personal introspection” is an ability sadly lacking in racists, bigots, and book banners.

  8. Robert Fawkes | March 31, 2022 at 7:32 pm |

    Very appropriate FJ today as today is Transgender Visibility Day, in case that didn’t occur to someone.

  9. Robert Fawkes | March 31, 2022 at 8:02 pm |

    Mike, It wasn’t actually an Inn. It was a “private” gay club aka gay bar called Stonewall Inn. The private club designation was to get around certain state laws. Please correct me if I’m wrong about that.

  10. Jim Cardillo | March 31, 2022 at 8:12 pm |

    Same thought here

  11. Karen Aitchison | March 31, 2022 at 8:57 pm |

    And 40-time Jeopardy Winner Amy Schneider was a guest at White House today for Transgender celebration.

  12. I would have written only “Stonewall” as well. I know about the “Stonewall riot” but didn’t remember the Inn part. I imagine it would have been accepted but I’m not sure.

  13. Gregory Bader | March 31, 2022 at 10:52 pm |

    I knew the “basic”answer instantly, but I would’ve answered either “What was Stonewall?” or, “What was the Stonewall Bar?” Andy, since several other commentators here have said the same thing, what do you think?

  14. Naomi Bernstein | March 31, 2022 at 11:13 pm |

    I knew the answer right away because I remembered the incident so well
    I used to go to the gay parades in the city
    The Stonewall inn was definitely a gay club
    As a former New Yorker I resent Gov Desantis passing a ridiculous law that the word gay is unacceptable in schools

  15. Enos Williams | April 1, 2022 at 12:04 am |

    Ok, you say it still requires five wins for the ToC. J! website says all four-time champions will make the ToC. Who’s right?

    • Zach Hicks | April 1, 2022 at 3:06 am |

      It says they are eligible for a future tournament.

      • 5 wins pretty much secures a spot. 4 wins makes you “eligible”, but it isn’t guaranteed. (of course the producers always have final say, and could possibly deny a 5+ game winner, or give a 3-game winner a spot if they really wanted to. but such occurrences are rare)
