As I recall the previous time I beat Final Jeopardy based on the category alone, the Final Jeopardy category was Astronomical Oddities. Take a guess then look at the Spoiler.

Kudos to you guys for even being willing to appear on Jeopardy! I'd be mortified if I gave an incorrect answer (well, question) on national TV...so I'd pretty much be guaranteed to lose by virtue of only buzzing in if I was 100% absolutely sure of my question.

I would be the opposite. I would try to buzz first on every question and would probably have the largest negative total ever.

Reminder that today, Jan 8, is the last episode with Alex.

In Las Vegas, it is on at 7:00 PM on channel 8.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I find it odd how the Jeopardy air time varies from market to market. In Chicago it's on at 3:30 in the afternoon.

Trebek didn't allow encyclopedias on his shows as cheat sheets.

Here’s a fun little video about a YouTuber that lives in downtown Las Vegas. She appeared on Jeopardy in 2003. This is the same lady who did that video I posted about a couple weeks ago on the Carole Lombard crash site on Mount Potosi.

Trebekless Jeopardy was a bit strange to watch tonight.
Final Jeopardy:
The name of this title song from a 1964 movie can be translated from Spanish as “Long Live the Meadows”
What is "Viva Las Vegas"!

I'm guessing Trebek's 'will' put that question/answer there.
