Too cute to last

The adorable Larissa Kelly of El Cerrito, CA lost today on Jeopardy. She managed to hold on for 6 days and win $222,597. Not too shabby.

Larissa tended to be a cowboy when it came to Daily Doubles and while in the past it catapaulted her scores above her fellow players, in this game the strategy just didn't work. Both times she got Daily Doubles Larissa bet big ($4k in the Jeopardy round and $8k in the Double Jeopardy round) and lost both times. The first time was really sad. The question was so obvious:

It's a member of the lowest rank of the French Legion of Honor: Just ask Maurice

How could you get that wrong??? Of course my love for the movie Gigi might be why I thought it was so easy. Well, no more recording Jeopardy. :-(

Are you questioning Alex Trebek's knowledge, Grasshopper? LOL

The answer didn't pertain to the French Foreign Legion, GG. It was about the honorary awards given for meritory service:

This world-renowned Order is the highest decoration in France and is divided into five various degrees: Chevalier (Knight), Officier (Officer), Commandeur (Commander), Grand Officier (Grand Officer) and Grand-Croix (Grand Cross).
