As I said in my recent editorial, if you’re going to express an opinion about one host or another, I ask that you make thoughtful, reasoned arguments. A lot of your opinions on one host over another are going to be a matter of personal taste. Please also remember that a permanent host will not be named until the start of Season 38.
|Stephanie Thompson, a PR specialist from San Diego, California
|Robert Ortega Jr., a civilian investigator from Alhambra, California
|Brian Chang, an attorney from Chicago, Illinois (2-day total: $34,202)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Brian has had two strong performances thus far. Fatigue may start to set in, though, as it always does for champs going into their third or fourth games of a day. Will Robert or Stephanie be up to the task?
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to abide by physical distancing guidelines and when you are not able to do so, properly wear a mask. Ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

In December 1926, famed mystery writer Agatha Christie disappeared. While she was found 11 days after her December 3 disappearance, the intervening period was a sensational time for the English press, as the country made every effort to find her. In all of the hubbub, noted author (and occultist) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the famed author of the Sherlock Holmes stories) took one of Christie’s gloves to a medium in an attempt to help find her. Christie’s autobiography makes no mention of this disappearance and many of its circumstances remain a mystery to this day.
