Yeah, a $1000 question is supposed to be more obscure than a lower value question, that says something.
The first guy answered Romney, how very very wrong.
If you are a Ron Paul supporter you will probably know the answer to this question, and you can pat yourself on the back and feel smart about yourself since none of the other three contestants were able to give the correct response. Interesting that this was the Final Jeopardy on the very next episode after a question about Ron Paul.
Seriously - 1979 - shah - anyone?
the answer. These Jeopardy contestants are usually super geniuses and it was so obvious to me I thought it had to be some kind of trick question or something. So I was shocked when I was the only person who was able to give the correct answer, that has never happened for me before, rare enough that I ever get Final Jeopardy right, lol.
Super geniuses, I don't know about that, more like super book smart. Book smarts and street smarts are very different. I knew the answer to that one even though I was born in '81 and have no idea who the guy named is.
When a person that has great book smarts can't figure out something simple, street smarts wise, that is when you tell them they are the dumbest smart person you know, lol.

Who is Mitt Romney?
I love my country
I am appalled by my government
And just as important.. What's a "Mitt"?
Who is Mitt Romney? Derrrrrrr
This guy was first with what he was sure was the right response, and FAILED Big Time, eh? The lady who correctly replied, "Who is Ron Paul?", seemed a bit hesitant to say so, or do you think not?
She was SO right on at least two levels. First, she knew to connect the ONLY consistent Republican bold enough to have a firm opinion on the subject, with balls enough to write a book centered on that focus, and titled that plainly.
That guy didn't know what Mitt Romney was, is, or will be.
She, on the other hand, might have barely paid enough attention to get her facts straight, and win the money; only to lose the contest in the end to him :(
Who is Ron Paul? The right reply might be a plain-spoken Husband, Father, Brother, Friend, Neighbor, Public-Steward and Statesman, who simply does justly towards everyone, everywhere, as equally as he knows how; loves mercy as a holy pardon, not a compromise of what is right; and walks humbly in the presence of a God who knows us all so intimately that He weighs our very heart's and mind's intent, and wants more for us than we can even imagine!
Happy Father's Day, Ron Paul! May your fine example help ignite brush-fires in the next generation, as you've faithfully passed the torch on to all of us in this one.
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
"Who is Mitt Romney" Darren ended up winning. :(
