Only ONE of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.


Victorian novelists often used “reader, dear reader and gentle reader” to speak directly to their readers. As for forgiveness, if there’s one character from that time period in sore need of it, it’s Edward Rochester. In Ch. 26 of “Jane Eyre” (1847) by Charlotte Brontë, Jane and Rochester are literally at the altar, about to exchange vows. After the “if anyone knows any reason” part of the ceremony is read, a man reveals that Rochester is already married.

In Ch. 27, Rochester pleads for forgiveness and Jane shares her reaction: “Reader, I forgave him at the moment and on the spot. There was such deep remorse in his eye, such true pity in his tone, such manly energy in his manner; and besides, there was such unchanged love in his whole look and mien–I forgave him all: yet not in words, not outwardly; only at my heart’s core.” That’s far from the end of the story. There are 11 more chapters and Rochester is not the only guy who wants to marry Jane.

Name Jane Eyre’s Rochester: I’ve not only read “Jane Eyre”, I’ve seen quite a few film versions and wrote about them 13 years ago.

Emma got it right, after crossing out Jane Eyre. She bet $6,793 and finished with $13,593.

Jesse came up with Pilgrim. He lost $4,100 and finished with $13,700.

Patrick went with Mr. Darcy. That cost him $13,401 and left him with $8,799. It also made Jesse Matheny a semifinalist.

Reversal: ENDS IN “X” ($800) The little hat worn by French words like hôtel & hôpital is called this – Ken accepted Emma’s French response of circonflexe, but the judges nixed it because it ends in E. The English word circumflex is the one that fits the category.

A triple stumper from each round:

POETRY ($800) “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” is a line from his 1711 “Essay on Criticism”

SAME TITLE, DIFFERENT LYRICS ($1600) In very different musical styles, the Animals, ELO & Sia implored, “Don’t” do this
