First name only acceptables: Elvis, Oprah and with today's game the dancing talk show host.

COMIC RELIEF had a recent name in the news with the "Full Frontal" clue. Also timely was PRIZE PACKAGES with the crown/scholarship/salary contest clue.

GAMES was wide open and I was optimistic it would be something I've played at some point. The clue greatly narrowed the options to six. My 16.67% chance was a hit as the ones chosen looked enough like other words I've seen. I'm glad the clue was not asking for the languages of those names.

A perfect victory for Michelle with 2/2 on DDs, solving the FJ! clue and making the proper wager.

Rainha (right or wrong) led me to royalty because it seemed to be the similar to the Spanish word Rey (and I guessed Rainha was Portuguese). From there the feminine ending led me to queen. 2/3

What's the record for most fails on a Final Jeopardy clue?

Rouva? I think that means horse. Must be the bishop!

My gawd. :(

You had a 1/6 chance to nail FJ! Malka, Rainha & Rouva all sounded like feminine names. Only chess piece that's feminine? The Queen!

Didn't recognize anything in World History.

Also can't say I recognize Aquaman.

Any reason I should know Pier for $200 was Baltic Sea? For all I know Lithuania is on Mars.

No idea where to even start on this FJ! None of the words sounded like anything to me. How the hell was this a triple get?

Rou- and rai- sound like they mean king, and -a is the feminine ending...let's go with queen. Instaget FJ. Portuguese for rainha seems like a good bet but if they had asked us for the languages, I'd still be staring at the screen.

Three perfectly good comics clues left to die. Enough with running out of time, we know you can fit all of the clues in!!

Malka is Hebrew for queen.

Because all three contestants knew or figured out the right answer?

I'm guessing it will poll in excess of 70% in a few days. Wouldn't surprise me if it went 80%.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

For those who just had to know what language "rouva" is from, there is this:

Turns out it's Finnish. Did anyone actually know that?

Spanish for queen is reina. So good logic.

And French is reine, so that connection is easy.

It took me a while to see the resonance of rainha - I was stuck for a while thinking rouva was close to rook, and I also tried to see a word for horse in there somewhere - but once I did, I had enough time to scribble the right response. I wish I'd been smart enough like others to notice the feminine ending thing!

I have a chess piece tattooed on my arm (not the malka or the reinha) so I wouldn't have forgiven myself for missing this one.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Going off the two r words, I said rook. Then "rainha" sounded like "ranee," which led me to switch to queen. Then, on the principle that one's first impression is probably correct, I switched back to rook.
I'm going to neg myself on the weekly poll.
Teems with quiet fun.

That's how I got it. The clue might as well have said "malka, kween & rouva".

I wish we could have seen the rest of the comics clues.
