Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Writers for Children) for Tuesday, February 2, 2021 (Season 37, Game 92):
The Dartmouth alumni magazine gave “rejoice” as a rhyme for the correct pronunciation of his name
(correct response beneath the contestants)
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.
|Henry Michaels, an arts administrator originally from Morganton, North Carolina
|Myrlin Hermes, a novelist from Portland, Oregon
|Steve Crupi, a retired police department information supervisor from Las Vegas, Nevada (1-day total: $10,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Steve Crupi took down superchampion Zach Newkirk in yesterday’s game. The prediction model is bearish on Steve’s chances, but a player will often put forth a better performance in their second game. Let’s see what happens 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.

Correct response: Who is Dr. Seuss?
More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2020 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
While most people pronounce the name of famed children’s author Dr. Seuss to rhyme with “moose”, Seuss’ Dartmouth friend Alexander Liang created the following poem: “You’re wrong as the deuce / And you shouldn’t rejoice / If you’re calling him Seuss. / He pronounces it Soice (or Zoice).” Eventually, because of the advantages to a children’s author having a name that sounds like Mother Geuss, Seuss relented in his later years on the pronunciation.
Also, I’d like to apologize for the delays in getting this Final Jeopardy information up. My Bell internet went down — again. I’m definitely looking into other options; Bell’s service has been struggling a lot more as of late.
