Well well well! The correct question was indeed “Who is Orville Gibson?” Born in Chateauguay NY (WAY up on the Canadian border, near the Gibson Brothers’ home!). He formed the Gibson Guitar & Mandolin Co. in 1894 but sold it to investors within a few years and bowed out. What a legacy he has left.
So, sadly, Todd gave an incorrect Question in “Who is Stephen Foster?” and he bet $1001, so he ends up at $4,999, but no prize. Thanks for playing!!
Andy and George each bet everything, so each doubled their score with the correct Question “Who is Orville Gibson?” They each now have $12,000.
We’re going to have a tie breaker Final Jeopardy for George and Andy. George and Andy, consider well how you wager some or all of your $12,000 on this Final Jeopardy Tie Breaker Category.
Once George and Andy reply in the Comment Section with their wagers, we’ll reveal the Final Jeopardy Tie Breaker clue.
Ed.Update: The Wagers are in! Here is the “answer” to the Final Round. Is there such a thing as a Final Final Round?
