Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, October 13, 2022

Warning: This page contains spoilers for the October 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 Documentaries) for Thursday, October 13, 2022 (Season 39, Game 24):

In this 1970 film, Max Yasgur says, “I’m a farmer…I don’t know how to speak to 20 people…let alone a crowd like this”

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s Jeopardy! contestants:

Andrew Jiang, an options trader from Brooklyn, New York
Andrew Jiang on Jeopardy!
Zack Russell, a contracting officer from Dayton, Ohio
Zack Russell on Jeopardy!
Cris Pannullo, a customer success operations manager from Ocean City, New Jersey (9-day total: $313,323)
Cris Pannullo on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:

There’s not much else to say about Cris Pannullo at this point—he’s been extremely dominant over nine victories, averaging nearly $35,000 over his first nine victories! (For sake of comparison, Ken Jennings’ 9-day total was $291,158, and Matt Amodio’s was $310,400.) If Cris makes it past Friday, he will get to take a few weeks off (both in real time and in Jeopardy! time) as the Second Chance Tournament begins Monday, followed immediately by the 30th Tournament of Champions, beginning October 31!

One thing that I’ll be on the lookout for in today’s game: 32 total correct responses from Cris will bring him to the magic 300 mark for correct responses.

Today’s challengers are Brooklyn options trader Andrew Jiang and Dayton, Ohio contracting officer Zack Russell.

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.

The 1970 documentary film Woodstock was made to chronicle the massively famous music festival, held on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm in Bethel, New York. Lauded as a hero in countercultural circles for this, Yasgur was made into a pariah by many of his neighbors, who deeply resented the countercultural movement and were upset by the size of the festival.

Other famous farmers in the history of music festivals include Michael Eavis, who has given his farm in Somerset, England for use of the Glastonbury Festival in the UK since 1970.

  • Today’s box score: October 13, 2022 Box Score

Final Jeopardy! wagering suggestions:

(Scores: Cris $20,400 Zack $10,000 Andrew $5,400)

Cris: Bet between $0 and $399 and enjoy win #10! (Actual bet: $0)

Zack: Standard cover bet over Andrew is $801. (Actual bet: $801)

Andrew: If Zack covers you and is incorrect, he falls to $9,199. You must bet at least $4,801. (Actual bet: $5,400)

24 Comments on "Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, October 13, 2022"

  1. Marvin Gregory “Greg” Fuller | October 13, 2022 at 9:05 am |

    One of the most famous farmers in history.

  2. Michael Johnston | October 13, 2022 at 9:15 am |

    Kind of a soft pitch for my generation 😉

  3. Yes, I recognized the farmer’s name and the date and it all added up to “Woodstock.”

    Those were some crazy, hazy, lazy days (my friend).

  4. My brother lived in the Newburg NY, 50 miles from Bethel, and people were parking around there and walking the rest of the way.

  5. Missed and learned something new – did not know whose farm it was and kept thinking it had to be something to do with Vietnam or Civil Rights.

  6. For me the easiest Final Jeopardy question ever.

  7. The first verse of “Woodstock” written by Joni Mitchell:

    “I came upon a child of God
    He was walking along the road
    And I asked him where are you going
    And this he told me
    I’m going on down to Yasgur’s farm *
    I’m going to join in a rock ‘n’ roll band
    I’m going to camp out on the land
    I’m going to try an’ get my soul free”

    • What Neil Young didn’t write that??? I am ruined! 🙂 Oh also, I have a friend who of course was there, and to quote him….”yep I was there, and I even seen Janice Joplin. She stood right beside me watching a show and we chatted.”….:)

      • If you go to Joni Mitchell’s website and to the page where she posts the lyrics for the song, the backstory is there – interesting.

  8. Woodstock was what I came up with. still the woodstock festival came into my mind. It has been very popular since the early years. Happy to see Zack and Cris getting the final right. Once again congrats to cris on winning 10 games. Cris could surpass Arthur chu and Johnathan Fisher in wins. and tie with them before reaching Seth Wilson’s 12 game win.

  9. Debbie Stover | October 13, 2022 at 6:32 pm |

    Ken, Matt, Cris — none of them stacks up well against Amy Schneider, whose nine-day total was $342,200.

    • Robert Fawkes | October 13, 2022 at 6:49 pm |

      So, what was James’ nine-day total? Why didn’t you mention his? Genuinely curious.

      • Debbie Stover | October 13, 2022 at 7:14 pm |

        Sorry, Robert. I took it for granted that James’s total, no matter how many days we looked at, would be far higher than anyone else’s. The one I was interested in comparing was Amy.

        (Somehow this ended up in the wrong place when I posted it a minute ago. Sorry!)

  10. I said “Woodstock” knowing I was referring to the correct event, but I had no idea if that was also the name of the film. Feel a bit lucky to have gotten this one.

  11. Sadly my generation got Woodstock ’99. 😞

  12. There was a question about fish and visitors. He answered smell and was ruled wrong. I still don’t get why. The subject and the question wording would seem to allow that as correct.

    • It didn’t fit the constraints of the category—it was a complete the quotation category, and the quotation wasn’t completed. The full quotation is that “guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days“. Because “after three days” was not given, credit was not given.

  13. Jay Rosenberg | October 13, 2022 at 10:38 pm |

    I lived on the corner of 17-B and Happy Ave in Bethel which was literally around the block from the festival site and was 11 years old at the time. I always say that I didn’t go to Woodstock, Woodstock came to me.

  14. Pizza Face Fred | October 13, 2022 at 11:02 pm |

    I call myself a “leftover hippy” and “time traveler.” I own the “40th Anniversary Utimate Collector’s Edition” of Woodstock on DVD, complete with a box that has a dashiki with a peace sign necklace as artwork and a suede, fringed “jacket” to put it in. If I’m lyin’, I’m dyin’! Still great music. Before the Final clue was revealed, I had convinced myself that Al Gore’s documentary was going to be the correct response, but I couldn’t remember that it was “An Inconvenient Truth” due to brain damage inflicted on me by “friends” who talked me into mind expanding experimentation in those days . . .

  15. Timothy Hinsdale | October 13, 2022 at 11:30 pm |

    Depending upon your age, this was one of the easiest Final Jeopardy questions ever. I am 69 and knew the answer before Ken finished reading it.
    Of course it helped I am a Joni Mitchell fan.
    Cris should have bet $399. He would have still gotten the win, even if he missed the question.

  16. Enos Williams | October 14, 2022 at 12:06 am |

    Re: The Rest as They Say, $800

    Something’s awry in the phrase “The best-laid plans” of these 2 creatures

    I’ll say something is awry, because the line is “The best-laid SCHEMES…” It’s been misquoted so often that apparently even J! accepts it now.
