The Final Jeopardy question (4/8/2013) in the category “Art” was:

One of its principal members said, “One morning one of us, having no black, used blue instead, &” this movement “was born.”

2-day champ Salvo Candela is back for another shot at winning some big money. So far, he’s racked up $47,295. Today he is up against these new opponents: Anne Hardiman from Houston, TX; and Mark Richardson, originally from Staunton, VA.

Anne found the Jeopardy! round Daily Double in “State Quarters.” She was in second place with $2,200, only $200 behind Salvo’s lead, and it was early, before the first break. She bet $600, guessed “Arizona” but that was WRONG.

Mark finished in the lead with $5,400. Salvo was second with $4,600 and Anne was last with $3,400.

Salvo found the first Double Jeopardy Daily Double in “Europe.” He had the lead with $7,000, $3,200 more than Mark in second place. He bet $3,000 and he was RIGHT.

With about 12 million people, this city on the Eastern European plain is the most populous entirely in Europe. show

After sweeping through “Misnamed Animals,” Salvo found the last Daily Double in “Synonyms.” He had a mega-lead with $19,600, $15,000 more than Anne in second place. He bet $1,500, and it sounded like he said “chorale.” Whatever it was, it was WRONG.

This synonym for “chorus’ also means to hold yourself back from doing something.

Salvo finished with another runaway, $20,100 this time. Anne was next with $9,400 and Mark was in third place with $2,200.

Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.

WHAT IS IMPRESSIONISM?

Pierre Auguste Renoir is the artist being quoted, although he did not say it in English with a French accent like Alex Trebek did. He said it in French: “Un matin, l’un de nous manquant de noir, se servit de bleu; l’impressionisme etait né.” See the The Concise Dictionary of Foreign Quotations (Multilingual Edition).

Mark wrote down “Fauvism” which cost him $800. He finished with $1,400.

Anne got it right but didn’t bet anything so she finished with what she started with.

Salvo wrote down “Modernism.” He only bet $1,200 so he still won the game with $18,900. His 3-day total is $66,195.
