The Final Jeopardy question (1/4/2013) in the category “Imaginary Characters” was:
For a 1912 play, they were dubbed Blick, Flick, Glick, Snick, Plick, Whick & Quee; 25 years later, they got new names.
Ashok Poozhikunnel is our new champ with a 1-day total of $21,600. He beat two ladies yesterday and he is up against two ladies today: Alison Shapiro, from Santa Monica, CA and Michele Myers Beuerlein, from Cincinnati, OH.
Alison found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “African Cities” right off the bat. It was the third clue uncovered. She was in the lead with $400, $200 more than Ashok. She made it a true Daily Double and she was RIGHT.
The name of this largest Moroccan city combines 2 Spanish words.
Ashok finished in the lead with $8,800. Alison was second with $4,800 and Michele was last with $3,400.
Alison found the first Double Jeopardy Daily Double in “Complete Dome-Nation.” She was in second place with $8,000, but that was only $800 behind Ashok now. She bet $1,000, guessed Milwaukee and that was WRONG.
This Wisconsin city claims to have built the USA’s only granite dome.
Ashok found the last Daily Double in “Let Me Preface That.” He was now in the lead with $14,400, a $4,600 edge over Alison in second place. He bet $3,000, and he was RIGHT.
The tribe was a mighty people, called the ‘Mahicanni.’ Or, more commonly, the ‘Mohicans’.
Ashok finished in the lead with a runaway $24,600. Alison was next with $9,000 and Michele was in third place with $5,000.
TWO of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
The Seven Dwarfs have been renamed many times since 1912. We wonder if Sean Combs knows that Doc was named Diddy in the 1987 “Snow White.” See the complete list of dwarf aliases on wikipedia)
Michele doubled her money, finishing with $10,000.
Alison bet $3,999, finishing with $12,999.
Ashok thought it was the Munchkins. (Wikipedia lists 11 names for them). He bet $6,599 so he ended up with $18,001 and that made him a 2-day champion. Total for both days: $39,601.
