Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category National Anthems) for Tuesday, May 3, 2022 (Season 38, Game 167):
“Terre de nos aïeux” follows the title in the French version of this anthem
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Enver Casimir, a history teacher from Albany, California
|Angela Kissner, an educational consultant & tutor from Akron, Ohio
|Mattea Roach, a tutor from Toronto, Ontario, Canada (20-day total: $476,985)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Yesterday’s material didn’t seem to fit any of the three contestants, with nobody making more than 30 attempts on the signalling device! Mattea Roach picked up her 20th victory, tying Julia Collins for 5th all-time! She definitely seems vulnerable, though. Both Angela and Enver are more than capable of playing Giant Killer 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.

Before we go any farther: Game material on Jeopardy is selected without regard for who any contestants may be. (In fact, removing material because it might be in the wheelhouse of a contestant would be illegal in and of itself.) On with the actual material now, “Terre de nos aïeux”, the literal translation being “Land of our ancestors”, is the second line of Canada’s national anthem, “O Canada”. A fun fact is that “O Canada” was written in Quebec for the Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day celebrations in 1880, and was only translated to English later. While “O Canada” was a de facto national anthem since 1939, it only became the official national anthem in 1980.
Jeopardy! Round categories: They Named A City for Him; Bible Belts; Let’s Go to the Auto Shop; The Actor Really Saves the Day!; Hidden Anatomy; Mrs., Miss or Mr.
Enver got out to a quick start, picking up 5 of the first 9 clues, including a Daily Double. Unfortunately, he did leave $400 on the table on the betting clue. Mattea also roared back, picking up 5 in a row on her own to take a slim lead going into the interviews. Coming out of the break, both Mattea and Enver continued their strong play; Enver finishing Single Jeopardy! only $1,200 off the lead!
Double Jeopardy! Round categories: History; Fictional Characters; States’ Other Common Languages; Pets; Easy Listening; Free as a Word
Mattea had a very strong Double Jeopardy! round, picking up 17 correct! The final Daily Double took a long time to come out, and it went to Mattea, who made a skillful Daily Double bet on the round’s penultimate clue to cement the runaway. Scores going into Final were Mattea at $24,600, with Enver at $9,800 and Angela $600.
Both Enver and Mattea did get Final Jeopardy! correct; Mattea has hit blackjack with her 21st victory! She’ll go for 22 tomorrow.
