Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Warning: This page contains spoilers for the September 13, 2022 game of Jeopardy! — please do not scroll down if you wish to avoid being spoiled. Please note that the game airs as early as noon Eastern in some U.S. television markets.

Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category The British Royal Family) for Tuesday, September 13, 2022 (Season 39, Game 2):

Prince Philip’s titles included Baron Greenwich & Duke of Edinburgh, but not Prince Consort, last used by this royal

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s Jeopardy! contestants:

Justin Tarbox, a software engineer from Hoover, Alabama
Justin Tarbox on Jeopardy!
April Marquet, a digital production artist from Oakland, California
April Marquet on Jeopardy!
Luigi de Guzman, an attorney from Arlington, Virginia (2-day total: $65,801)
Luigi de Guzman on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:

In yesterday’s game, Luigi de Guzman completely dominated the proceedings, seemingly ringing in at will and picking up over $40,000. That said, viewers should be reminded of the old proverb—one swallow does not make a summer. One great game does not automatically make a super-champ—though I think that a lot of people are curious to see if Luigi can repeat yesterday’s very strong performance. (Though, I’m sure, back in early August when this episode was taped, that April and Justin would prefer that it not repeat.)

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 can, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Important note: Today’s game was taped in early August 2022, well before the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince Albert has been the only Prince Consort in British History, having been given that title after marrying Queen Victoria in 1840. He held that title until his death in 1861; Albert’s death devastated Victoria and she wore black for the remainder of her life and reign.

Justin 8 correct 0 incorrect
Luigi 4 correct 0 incorrect
April 3 correct 2 incorrect

Double Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: Do You Feel A First Draft?; Synonyms; A Chem/Physics/Bio Sampler; Full Of Holes; European Places; 20th Century Song, 21st Century Ad)

April was in a distant third place until midway through Double Jeopardy, when she made this into a very tight 3-way game by picking up $5,000 on a Daily Double! Luigi pulled back into the lead when he got the final Daily Double in the closing stages, but he also didn’t bet enough—April got the final $1600 clue of the round to hold a very slim lead going into Final!

Statistics after Double Jeopardy:

April 15 correct 4 incorrect
Luigi 19 correct 3 incorrect
Justin 18 correct 2 incorrect
Total number of unplayed clues this season: 4 (1 today).

Both Luigi and April got Final correct—April looked very sullen after Luigi’s response and bet were revealed, and that was because she knew she hadn’t bet enough! Luigi wins his third game and is now at $97,200! He’ll go for win #4 tomorrow!

Today’s interviews:

Justin met Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings at quiz bowl tournaments.
April wrote trivia questions that were too difficult for fifth-graders.
Luigi does pro bono immigration work.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • April has reported on Reddit that she had intended to make the cover bet but failed to do so under the pressure of the situation. She then locked in the bet that she did and found herself unable to change it, even though she had wanted to.
  • Obviously, it is incredibly early in Season 39 to say, but it would not surprise me if we saw April in October 2023 in a Second Chance Tournament.
  • Today’s box score: September 13, 2022 Box Score

Final Jeopardy! wagering suggestions:

(Scores: April $16,600 Luigi $15,700 Justin $11,000)

Luigi: Standard cover bet over Justin is $6,301. (Actual bet: $15,699)

April: Standard cover bet over Luigi is $14,801. (Actual bet: $1,801)

Justin: If Luigi bets just to cover you and is incorrect, he falls to $9,399. Limit your bet to $1,599. (Actual bet: $1,500)

  1. It was an easy get for me. Victoria was on Masterpiece “Theatre” (using this spelling as respect) only recently, and I grew up in India near a city where Victoria Memorial is a landmark.

    Interestingly, this category showed up this week – conspiracy theorists need to get into action.

    Prince Albert was the only name I could think of, which makes sense if he was the only one 😅

  3. I was surprised to find that that no one had apparently commented on Ken Jennings being introduced as “The Host of Jeopardy!” rather than as “Hosting Jeopardy!” Does that mean that we won’t be seeing Mayim Bialik this season? I like both of them, and as much as I enjoyed the stability of Alex’s hosting, I find the break between these two hosts quite refreshing.

  4. Luigi mentioned on Twitter that he felt he was doing lousily in the warmup games, so it’s a good thing he’s presumably managed to shake that off!

    I don’t think yesterday’s game was an outlier. Remember, had James Holzhauer not gotten the final Daily Double correct in his second game, he would have lost, but he got it correct, and look where he is now. I think Luigi was just tired after such a monstrous performance yesterday. He clearly knows a lot of stuff, and his being 8-for-8 on the betting clues bodes well for a long run. I think he has the chops to win more than 20 games, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see!

  5. With what you said about April above, I agree with you it is only the second day of Season 39 and both April and Justin were very competitive against champion Luigi so there may be a very good chance that we may see BOTH April and Justin in the October 2023 Second Chance Tournament.

  6. 2 for 2 in Final this season – off to a good start – which will probably come back to haunt me tomorrow

  7. Feel bad for April, but if I were to ever get onto Jeopardy and be leading going into the final, there is no way I’m wagering against myself and not making a cover bet. That being said, it looks like she was guessing that Luigi would wager 901 to pass her should she wager zero, but in doing so, she over over bet by a dollar in that if they’d both gotten wrong (and he’d wagered 901), they would have been tied. But it’s all a moot point. And I’m never getting on Jeopardy.

    • MarkO,
      April posted on the Jeopardy Reddit page about this. When she did her math to see what to bet, she copied the wrong number for her wager instead of the number that would have won the game.

      • Thanks, Brian. Yeah, I figure under the pressure of choosing your strategy, and then doing the math to execute it, isn’t easy. I don’t do reddit, but maybe I should check out the Jeopardy reddit page.

    April’s getting in on the next Second Chance Tournament, I’m calling it.

  9. Certainly not the bet I would have made. You need to cover all your bases. Don’t go in assuming you or someone else will get final incorrect.

  10. April is definitely going to the second chance tournament i can bet on it. This was pretty easy as I remember that joke do you have prince Albert in a can. Luigi seems to have very strong knowledge here. But I just hope he wI’ll keep the win going

  11. I was quite sure there had been no Queen between Victoria and Elizabeth II, so did not even try to think of anyone other than Albert, though I was surprised he was the ONLY one.

  12. I feel sick for April. You can see her actual bet was missing the “4” vs what the cover bet would have been. To go from only $1200 after the Jeopardy round to what should have been $31,401 in winnings would have been very impressive.

  13. Luigi’s bet on the last DD seemed suboptimal, especially with his track record. With Ken hinting that time was about to run out, he could’ve gone $3500 and covered the possibility of April getting the $1600 clue while still being in contention even if he missed and April got the $1600.

    Speaking of time running out, if they’re going to insist on running these video categories, they need to edit the show so they can get to all the clues in a well-played game like this.

    • To be fair, I was actually surprised that we saw the 29th clue; typically, when the Daily Double comes out that late, the Daily Double ends up ending the round.

      • True, but I don’t see a downside to covering against the possibility in any case. The $2500 bet was already big enough to put him below Justin if he missed.

  14. I was sure Luigi would get the final jeopardy even before I saw the clue. I knew that he went to University of Cambridge & LSE for his undergraduate & graduate studies. It was an easy FJ so I thought that all 3 would get it right. Apparently, not ! 😊

  15. you’re telling me that the contestants get SCRATCH PAPER?!?

    Do they also get a calculator?
