Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Historic Namesakes) for Wednesday, February 10, 2021 (Season 37, Game 98):
This aircraft was named for the second president of the Weimar Republic
(correct response beneath the contestants)
In case you missed it: Jeopardy! announced four more guest hosts this week. Three of those picks are a good idea. The fourth is a nearly unanimously unpopular pick with fans and former contestants alike.
|Jared Wilke, a teacher from Half Moon Bay, California
|Tiffany Seitler, a finance manager originally from Garfield, New Jersey
|John Focht, a software team lead originally from El Paso, Texas (2-day total: $58,800)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: John’s second win yesterday wasn’t quite as dominant as his first win on Monday, but the results counted the same on the scoreboard: he’s got a pair of wins. He’s shown that he can be dominant when he needs to be, though. If we see more play like Monday, the chances are good of John pulling out a win today.
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.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The LZ 129 Hindenburg was a famous German zeppelin in service in 1936 until its very famous fire in New Jersey while attempting to land on May 6, 1937; 36 people died in the accident. The ship was named after Paul von Hindenburg, who was the President of Germany; Hindenburg is infamous today for appointing Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933. Upon Hindenburg’s death in 1934, Hitler announced the dissolution of the office, thereby removing any impediment to Hitler become a totalitarian leader of Germany.
