Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Literary Thrillers) for Wednesday, March 10, 2021 (Season 37, Game 118):
The only Ian Fleming James Bond novel not told in the third person, it’s narrated by one of 007’s paramours
(correct response beneath the contestants)
The Jeopardy! community is mourning the loss of Brayden Smith, who passed away on February 5. The Brayden Smith Memorial Fund has been established, dedicated to furthering the educational aspirations of Southern Nevada students.
|James Fraser, a Naval aviator from Norfolk, Virginia
|Lori White, a fiction & part-time science writer originally from Grangeville, Idaho
|Zach Shrier, a financial advisor from Los Angeles, California (1-day total: $22,801)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Zach defeated a very strong champion in Laura Portwood-Stacer yesterday; if he can continue his strong play on the signalling device (he got in first 21 times yesterday), he should be able to pick up win #2.
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.

Ian Fleming’s The Spy who Loved Me is mostly told from the perspective of a young Canadian, Vivienne Michel. According to what Fleming wrote in the prologue, “According to her story, she appears to have been involved, both perilously and romantically, with the same James Bond whose secret service exploits I myself have written from time to time.” The fictional Michel was given co-author credit for the work. It also shares no general plot points with the 1977 Bond film of the same title.

- Lori seemed to select clues in a more deliberate fashion; I would say that this, coupled with a pair of clues in the Jeopardy! round that saw 2 or 3 incorrect responses, was the cause of us not seeing all 30 clues in the opening round.
