Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Artists) for Wednesday, September 14, 2022 (Season 39, Game 3):

He said, “The Seine! I have painted it all my life, at all hours, in all seasons, from Paris to the sea”

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s Jeopardy! contestants:

Harriet Wagner, a retired lawyer from Houston, Texas Winston Li, a clinical assistant professor from Durham, North Carolina Luigi de Guzman, an attorney from Arlington, Virginia (3-day total: $97,200)

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:

Luigi de Guzman survived a scare in last night’s game after both April and Justin were very strong on the signaling device. If Luigi can regain his buzzer timing—his first three games have seen him make 49, 50, and 50 attempts during the game, as per the box scores—he could be unstoppable. One more win should cement Luigi’s spot in the 31st Tournament of Champions in October and November of 2023. (The field for the 30th Tournament of Champions was locked at the end of Season 38.)

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.

Claude Monet, best known as one of the founders of the Impressionist art movement, was also known for the numerous paintings of the Seine River in France during his career. Giverny, the famous site of Monet’s home and garden, is situated on the east bank of the Seine. Meanwhile, Honfleur, on the south bank of the mouth of the Seine in Western France (Le Havre is on the north bank), was also a frequent setting of Monet’s early paintings.

Game Recap:

Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: Historic Words; Music; Dog Names; Buildings; The Born Identity; “Con”s)

Luigi had the best time on the signaling device, but a pair of $1,000 incorrect responses—both rebounded by Winston—kept the game reasonably close after the Jeopardy! round, even though Winston got the first Daily Double incorrect.

Statistics at the first break (15 clues):

Luigi 8 correct 1 incorrect Harriet 3 correct 0 incorrect Winston 4 correct 0 incorrect

Statistics after the Jeopardy round:

Luigi 13 correct 2 incorrect Harriet 6 correct 0 incorrect Winston 9 correct 1 incorrect

Double Jeopardy! Round:

(Categories: Ends With 2 Vowels; Africa; Priming The Pump; Literary Characters; The Law; Cons)

Luigi was running away with things early on, but losing $6,000 on a Daily Double brought him back to the field. Things were looking very close going into the 30th clue, until Harriet gave the incorrect first name on author LeGuin, only for Luigi to pick up the rebound and cement a runaway game. (It was 100% a correct call, Ken clearly began ruling before Harriet attempted a correction.) Scores going into Final were Luigi at $17,800, with Winston and Harriet tied at $8,600 each.

Statistics after Double Jeopardy:

Luigi 29 correct 4 incorrect Winston 16 correct 3 incorrect Harriet 10 correct 1 incorrect Total number of unplayed clues this season: 4 (0 today).

The game becoming a runaway became a moot point, as all 3 players were correct. Luigi made a small wager and is now a 4-day champion! He’ll go for win #5 tomorrow!

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Today’s box score: September 14, 2022 Box Score

Final Jeopardy! wagering suggestions:

(Scores: Luigi $17,800 Winston $8,600 Harriet $8,600)

Luigi: Bet between $0 and $599 and enjoy win #4! (Actual bet: $200)

Winston: Being that I don’t believe you have advantage for second place here, there’s no real point to going all-in here. I would recommend holding back a token amount in order to take second if Harriet goes all-in. (Actual bet: $8,600)

Harriet: While it’s possible that this rule has changed, under the old rules, you would have advantage for second place based on being ahead $2,000 to $1,800 at the first commercial break. Thus, you should go all-in here to guarantee second place on a correct response. (Actual bet: $8,500)

Note: If the rules have changed without us at home having been informed, whoever has the “advantage” betwen Winston and Harriet should go all-in, and whoever does not should hold a token amount back.
