Only one of the contestants got it right. The other two responded with Yellow Submarine.

That's a difficult final jeopardy for most people, Kelley.

I remember when Alex Trebek called someone wrong thusly: 

"What is Mardi Gras?"
"Oh, I'm sorry.  The correct response is "What is Fat Tuesday?"

Pretty stupid for someone who claims he speaks French fluently.  After the commercial, he announced that the judges ruled the contestant correct in his response.

He can be a little pompous at times. He got a bit of comeuppance tonight though. He was attempting to say that one of the contestants was on an all-girl softball team but he accidentally said "All boil softball team". She laughed and said "Oh no...that would be gross!"

He's extremely pompous.  My sister auditioned for the show about 20 years ago.  They flashed fifty responses on a TV monitor and she had ten seconds to write the questions.  My sister gets every one right without even looking at the TV!  That day she scored a 90%.  She was disappointed and the way he consoled her was by saying "When I take these quizzes, I usually score 98%"  My sister replied:  "Oh yeah?  Well you're not so smart.  You have the answers on your little cards during the show."

Maybe 90% woulda been sufficient to get her on the show.  We'll never know.

Good for Sharon! When we watch the show one of us almost always says at some point, "Yeah, sure; you've got the card in front of you." I'm glad to know that someone actually said it to him in person.
