On 'Jeopardy,' a 'What is Florida' answer scored $600 for this clue
What is Florida?
No, it's not a rhetorical question, but rather the $600 answer to a Jeopardy question on the March 20 episode.
The category was "state of the airport" and the clue given on the first question of the night was "Vero Beach Regional (and) Naples Airport."
Vero Beach: From Eastern to Elite to Breeze, here's a short history of a small airport
Flights out of Vero Beach:Breeze Airways inaugurates passenger service with first flight
Poll:Where else would you like Breeze Airways to fly from Vero Beach?
While Florida viewers just get bragging rights for getting it right, contestant Jake Garrett got the $600 cash prize for answering correctly. The Alabama football coach and teacher ended the episode with $2,000, not moving on to Tuesday night's episode.
The Vero Beach Regional Airport in Indian River County offers passenger service via Breeze Airways, a discount airline based in Maine, with three destinations on the East Coast: Norfolk, Virginia; Westchester, New York; and Hartford, Connecticut. The Naples Airport in Collier County doesn't offer any commercial passenger airline service.
Viewers can tune in to see the returning champion Kelly Baker, a marketing communications specialist from Seattle, Washington, as she moves on to the next episode with a cash prize of $24,801.
