|Susan McMillan, an Arabic translator from Portland, Maine
|Lisa O’Brien, a stay-at-home mom & community volunteer from Edina, Minnesota (1-day total: $16,100)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Lisa led most of the way yesterday, but was pipped just before Final Jeopardy. She did have the signalling device figured out yesterday — if that continues, her chances are good that she’ll successfully defend her title.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get vaccinated as soon as it becomes available to you. Additionally, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Another Final Jeopardy! where you can get further reading from the Smithsonian Magazine. (I get the sense that one of the writers went down a rabbit hole on that site.) After being so moved by the beauty of the Yosemite area in California, John Muir moved to Yosemite in the late 1860s, lived there full time for a few years, and began dedicating his life to protecting the area’s beauty. Yosemite National Park was created in 1890 (Muir helped to demarcate the area bounded by the Park), and the Sierra Club was founded in 1892, in part to protect the area.
