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.

More information about Final Jeopardy:

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.

Interestingly, Jeopardy! itself in the past (’80s & ’90s being “the past” in this case) has failed to note this distinction; a number of games in that era of the show definitely gave Prince Philip the title of “Prince Consort”.

(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 the Final!

Total number of unplayed clues this season: 4 (1 today).

Scores going into Final:

April $16,600
Luigi $15,700
Justin $11,000

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 won his third game and is now at $97,200! (He went on to win 5.)

Tonight’s results:

Justin $11,000 – $1,500 = $9,500 (Who is George V)

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • At the time of this show’s original airing, April 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.
  • It still would not surprise me if we saw April in a future Second Chance Tournament.
  • Today’s box score: September 6, 2023 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)

4 Comments on "Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, September 6, 2023"

  1. As a kid, I always heard Prince Philip referred to as Prince Consort. I suppose the distinction is that Elizabeth II was married prior to becoming Queen, whereas Victoria was already Queen when she took a husband.

  2. I don’t think saying April looked sullen is quite fair to her. May I suggest crestfallen instead? [I really think she was stifling tears in addition to just being mad at herself, especially as it was about a careless mistake rather than a mathematical error or a deliberate choice.]

    • Hi Lisa, Yes, I love the word, “crestfallen.” It’s the perfect description of April’s demeanor at the end of today’s game. 😪

      • Since she realized her mistake quickly, but not quickly enough to fix it, I’m sure that frustration underlay her ultimate demeanor, but that until Luigi’s response was disclosed she was holding out hope he would get it wrong and her bet wouldn’t matter.
