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
|April Marquet, a digital production artist from Oakland, California
|Luigi de Guzman, an attorney from Arlington, Virginia (2-day total: $65,801)
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.

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!

- 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.
