Final Jeopardy You will choose one member from your team to represent your team. Only the member you choose can answer the final Jeopardy question. I will reveal the subject. The team will decide how many points they will wager on the question and write it on a piece of paper. I will reveal the answer. The chosen member will have 30 seconds to answer the question on the piece of paper. If you get it right, you will receive the points you wagered, times two If you get it wrong, you will loose the points you wagered.
