Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, July 4, 2023

Warning: This page contains spoilers for the July 4, 2023, 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 Classical Music) for Tuesday, July 4, 2023 (Season 39, Game 212):

Composed around 1720, this group of instrumental works was dedicated to a younger brother of Prussian king Frederick I

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s Jeopardy! contestants:

Chuck Beem, an HRIS analyst from Florissant, Missouri
Chuck Beem on Jeopardy!
Kate Campolieta, a corporate communications specialist from Simsbury, Connecticut
Kate Campolieta on Jeopardy!
Elliott Kim, a television editor from Los Angeles, California (1-day total: $24,400)
Elliott Kim on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:

Happy Fourth of July! Yesterday’s Jeopardy! saw Elliott Kim put in a very strong performance, racking up over $27,000 going into Final. Although Final didn’t completely work out for him, I’d be very surprised if yesterday was his only victory. Today’s challengers are Connecticut’s Kate Campolieta and Missouri’s Chuck Beem.

Chuck was introduced today as an HRIS analyst. What is an HRIS analyst? HRIS stands for “Human Resources information systems” and would generally refer to the databases & computer systems that companies use to manage their HR departments—managing payroll, benefits, performance reviews, training records, etc.

The Brandenburg Concertos are Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous collection of six concertos, presented to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt and younger brother of Prussian king Frederick I. Interestingly, Christian Ludwig apparently lacked the musicians to perform the concertos, as his brother was not a significant patron of the arts. However, all six concertos receive significant play today. (I personally would say that the first movement of Concerto No. 3 in G major, BWV 1048, is the most recognizable overall, at least to me.)

Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: Happy July 4th!; Words That End With Double Letters; Lady “A”; Where’s My Food?; Westminster-Winning Dog Breeds; A Biblical Burial)

Kate got off to a great start, picking off $1,000 clues early off the bottom of the board. Elliott attempted to catch up but his comeback was derailed by a very slightly incorrect response on a Daily Double (it was a 100% correct call from the judges, though.)

Statistics at the first break (15 clues):

Kate 7 correct 1 incorrect
Chuck 2 correct 0 incorrect
Elliott 3 correct 1 incorrect

Today’s interviews:

Chuck is the father of 5 children.
Kate is a very big Pittsburgh Penguins fan.
Elliott lost to a team of Jeopardy! contestants at pub trivia.

Double Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: U.S. Festivals; Science; Let’s Go To The Sports Book; World Rivers; Foreign Words & Phrases; Art”s”)

In a round that saw 8 incorrect responses, 4 of which at the $2,000 level, the scores stayed down. Neither Elliott nor Chuck were able to go into Kate’s lead, and she cruised to a runaway, helped by Chuck getting both Daily Doubles incorrect.

Statistics after Double Jeopardy:

Kate 17 correct 4 incorrect
Chuck 13 correct 6 incorrect
Elliott 11 correct 4 incorrect
Total number of unplayed clues this season: 35 (0 today).

Final Jeopardy! was a Triple Stumper today, but Kate’s runaway means she’s the new champion! She’ll return tomorrow to defend.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • #87 belongs to Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby; clearly, Kate bet Crosby’s uniform number in Final Jeopardy.
  • In case you’re here to ask why Chuck lost $1,600 and not $800 for the judge’s reversal: remember that he was originally given credit for a correct response. Thus, to go from correct (+800) to incorrect (-800), you have to deduct $1,600 from Chuck’s score.
  • Today’s box score: July 4, 2023 Box Score.

Final Jeopardy! wagering suggestions:

(Scores: Kate $11,600 Chuck $1,400 Elliott $1,100)

Elliott: Limit your bet to $499. (Actual bet: $806)

Kate: Limit your bet to $8,799. (Actual bet: $87)

Chuck: Standard cover bet over Elliott is $801. (Actual bet: $1,399)

  1. When I saw the category, I thought “Oh, no, I’m never going to get this one!” But when I read the clue, I realized that I didn’t know what I know. Practically every element in the clue had meaning for me. So I started July 4th off with a bang! Have a great Independence Day, everyone!

    (P.S. Andy, I am still having to re-enter my info with each post. I know you’re extremely busy, and it is a holiday, but I hope you will soon be able to switch to that “page” system you mentioned on Friday.)

    I am not having trouble myself with commenting and have not had to re-enter my information. Using Safari on my iPhone.

  3. Michael Johnston | July 4, 2023 at 10:25 am |

    Yeah. This one pretty much comes down to JS Bach or Handel, and Handel was already in London in 1720.

    • Michael Johnston | July 4, 2023 at 10:41 am |

      Heh, left off in the middle of my line of thought 🙄 Anyway, timeline indicates the Brandenburg Concertos. Alternatively, the scion of Prussian Monarchy could lead you to guess the locale around Berlin which might point to the concertos.

  4. I predict a triple stumper today — unless one of the players happens to be a classical music buff. We shall see.

  5. Not an easy FJ at all, as it requires specialized knowledge.

  6. National anthems, fashion, and classical music… can’t think of a worse trio of Final categories for me as of late. Blarg.

  7. Before my time, but I did get this one.

  8. As a classical music buff myself I pretty much listen to Bach and his concertos. I have a few of them on my electronic keyboard one of which is minuet and the other is Air Suite G

  9. Whee! Just an educated guess. . . but I got it! The Brandenberg Concertos! I love them, and now the central theme is my “earworm” for the day!

  10. Wow. Today’s game was almost as fun and fast-paced as yesterday’s but I was surprised by the number of incorrect answers and unanswered clues. I truly thought that Elliott had the makings of TofC contender but it was not to be. It will be interesting to see if Kate escapes the sophomore jinx.

    • It was fun for me to get 5 of their triple stumpers correct, but they go so fast on many that it is easy to not realize that there were well more than that which one of them got correct but I would not have.

      • For what it’s worth, the Site Comment Policy’s instructions regarding “reading” involves reading the post, not the comments. 😉

  11. I don’t understand when two contestants miss the question the third contestant guesses. The first two lost money, so why does the third guess and lose that advantage?

    • Both the money you get from a correct response and gaining control of the board are particularly compelling reasons to still take a guess in such cases.

  12. Michael Johnston | July 4, 2023 at 8:54 pm |

    Page 2? Is this a intentional change Andy?

    • I think it is part of his changes to get the loading to go faster. At first I thought starting with page 2 was odd, but then assumed that it was so it would be clear that there is a place to make comments.

      However, ‘FIND’s don’t work on pages that are not “up”, so that makes it more work to follow the directive to make sure that a question hasn’t already been answered or observation already made (though, of course, that mostly pertains to statements in the “real” sections, not the comments).

    • Yes; I believe that splitting the comments section into pages will help the loading time.
