Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:

The High School Reunion Tournament is over and we are back to regular episodes; Ken Jennings returns to host through April 28. Also returning is 3-day champion Stephen Webb, who won just over $80,000 in his first three games. While Stephen would have had three weeks off in airing time, today’s episode was taped the day following February 17’s episode. Today’s challengers are Jannette Peterson and Nick Lauber.

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.

Many Protestants in England were very worried about the actions of the Catholic King James II; James had lost popular support when he suspended Parliament in 1685; however, because the heir at the time was his protestant daughter Mary, the worry was considered a short-term issue. However, the birth of a male heir and further anti-Protestant action by James II caused many in England to invite Mary’s husband, William of Orange (William III) to invade England. James, faced with mass desertion in his army, almost immediately capitulated to the invasion and went into exile in France. The installation of William and Mary as monarchs is now known as the Glorious Revolution in English history and also led to the establishment of the supremacy of Parliament in the United Kingdom.

Game Recap:

Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: Let’s Visit Nicaragua; Shopping At The Mall; 20th Century Names; TV Shows In Other Words; Hodgepodge; From Stem To Stern)

Stephen immediately started by running the Nicaragua category. However, Jannette got clue #6 on the rebound after an incorrect response from Stephen—and the Daily Double was clue #7. So, the game was tied after 7 clues. Stephen himself rebounded well, having $4,600 at the first break and $8,200 at the second.

Statistics at the first break (15 clues):

Stephen 10 correct 2 incorrect
Jannette 3 correct 0 incorrect
Nick 2 correct 2 incorrect

Statistics after the Jeopardy round:

Stephen 17 correct 3 incorrect
Jannette 7 correct 2 incorrect
Nick 5 correct 3 incorrect

Double Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: Future Oscar Winners; Biology; Getting Schooled; Tool Talk; National Official Languages; Literary Before & After)

Jannette got to the first Daily Double, but didn’t bet everything; Stephen then got the last one and bet $3,000 on that one. The remainder of Double Jeopardy saw everyone wondering if Stephen would stay above twice Jannette’s score—and he did. Scores going into Final were Stephen at $20,400, Jannette at $9,600, and Nick at $5,400. (Thankfully, Jannette’s not going all in on the second Daily Double did not cost her the runaway.)

Statistics after Double Jeopardy:

Stephen 29 correct 6 incorrect
Jannette 15 correct 3 incorrect
Nick 10 correct 3 incorrect
Total number of unplayed clues this season: 16 (0 today).

Final today was a Triple Stumper—Stephen has won an all-important fourth game though, and has cleared the $100,000 mark! He’ll go for win #5 on Monday!

  1. Now this is a great FJ clue. Something that at least one, but not all three, of the contestants will know. The trap here would be to write down William the Conqueror in haste. You’d be off by six hundred years.

    • Robert Fawkes | March 10, 2023 at 5:03 pm |

      Prescient words, Gregory, two of the three fell into the trap that you warned against. Nice going.

  2. Michael Johnston | March 10, 2023 at 10:15 am |

    Wow, tough one 😮 I knew nothing about that part of Great Britain’s history, and guessed William (the Conqueror) even though I thought it was wrong. I’ll have to start investigating some sources to learn more about the Glorious Revolution.

    Current FJ streak: 1L

  3. DruidOfTheFang | March 10, 2023 at 10:30 am |

    If they’d given a date, I would have said William III but I went with William I (mostly because of his cool royal nickname).

    • Robert Fawkes | March 10, 2023 at 5:12 pm |

      If someone had responded with “Who was William III?” (my choice) they would certainly have accepted that, wouldn’t they?

  4. Yikes! I went with William the Conqueror too! A wild guess! I should have consulted the “time line” in my head!

  5. Marvin Gregory “Greg” Fuller | March 10, 2023 at 11:15 am |

    I’m stupid enough about English history I guessed Napoleon.

  6. Well, my oldest child graduated from William and Mary, so I had an edge here.

    BTW, this is a great site. Very well managed and presented.

  7. If I had gone for william the conquerer I would be off by hundreds of years, William of Orange was proven to be the logical choice here. I have not studied that much about british history so I will have to look into it when I have the time

    Anyway congrats to stephen once again!

  8. I like that Stephen has gotten this far because when I first saw his picture on his first appearance day I thought “he looks like a Jeopardy! champion”.
