Most recently the category was "German Americans." I managed to guess the answer based on the category alone. Let's see who gets it first.

Quote:teliotOne of the pleasures I get from final Jeopardy is a special challenge of trying to guess the answer based on only knowing the category just as it goes to commercial. I've succeeded three times over the years in guessing the answer without knowing the question.

Trump. (DJT)

My wife guessed "Einstein," which was also the wrong answer given by one of the contestants. We give ourselves partial credit if we get the same wrong answer as a contestant. Again, this is before knowing the question.

If you are referring to the Final a few weeks ago, I would not have guessed it by the category alone, but I did get it with the clue.Quote:teliotOne of the pleasures I get from final Jeopardy is a special challenge of trying to guess the answer based on only knowing the category just as it goes to commercial.

One of my Final Jeopardy pleasures is getting the answer right when the three contestants missed it. I can probably count the times that has happened on one hand.

One of the informal rules for blind guesses on Final Jeopardy is the "too famous"/"too obvious" rule. For that reason, Einstein and Trump could not possibly be the correct answers.

Yes, this was the category just a couple of weeks back.

I also enjoy guessing the answer Of final Jeopardy.

I have only succeeded twice.

Einstein was my guess but knew it was probably wrong due to the too obvious clause.

I so rarely get the final question correct that I consider my answer good enough if one of the contestants guesses it.
