Today’s Final Jeopardy – Friday, April 2, 2021

Today is Friday, April 2, 2021 — the final day of Dr. Oz hosting Jeopardy. $236,100 has been raised over 9 days for his charity. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy:

Eponymous Landmarks: In 1960 the ashes of this aviator were spread over the Venezuela natural wonder he famously sighted decades earlier

(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.

Today’s contestants:

Stephanie Chapman, an oncology nurse from Owasso, Oklahoma
Stephanie Chapman on Jeopardy!
Mary Dixon, a bookseller & poet from Lakewood, California
Mary Dixon on Jeopardy!
Scott Shewfelt, a writer originally from Tavistock, Ontario, Canada (1-day total: $17,199)
Scott Shewfelt on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: As someone who grew up in Ontario, I always associated Tavistock with cheese – the Tavistock Cheese brand is now owned by Saputo. That small town of 7,000 just west of Kitchener can now add Scott Shewfelt to things it’s known for. Scott will definitely need to cut back on the incorrect responses (he had 4 in the main game) in order to have a better chance of victory today.

(And, speaking of cheese, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers begins his hosting stint on Monday.)

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.)

Venezuela’s Angel Falls were discovered accidentally in 1933; Jimmie Angel was searching for ore in the region when the Falls were discovered. The falls have a height of 3,212 feet (979 metres) and has an uninterrupted fall of 2,648 feet (807 metres). It is both the tallest waterfall and the largest drop in the world. Upon returning to the falls in 1937 by plane, Angel’s plane got stuck in the marshy ground and his travelling party needed 11 days on foot to return to civilization.

For those newer to Jeopardy: The show definitely likes to use the word “Eponymous”; it generally means “named after a specific person” in this context.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Friendly reminder: Failing to phrase in the form of a question in the Jeopardy! round is a warning offense, not a penalty.
  • Thus far, $268,701 has been donated to Healthcorps, Inc.

    Just read an article on ESPN and apparently Aaron Rodgers did a really good job. Can’t wait for Monday.

    • Social media is saying today that he watched hours and hours of shows to prepare for hosting. Guess it paid out for him.

  2. Congratulations to Scott! He took a chance on his DD wager and it paid off very well for him!
    I can hardly wait until next week when I resume watching the show.
    A warm welcome to Aaron Rodgers – it’s gonna be a fun two weeks!

  3. Looking forward to seeing Aaron Rodgers hosting jeopardy. That will be a great two weeks. Also congrats to Scott on his second win. We will like for him to keep going.

    Solid game from Scott. Never hurt himself. Daily double wager was too risky for my taste, but he got away with it.

  5. Ronnie Gambardella | April 2, 2021 at 10:45 pm |

    I must give the devil his due. Dr Oz came aross as very pleasant and personable. Good host.

    • Yes, he did a good job of actually hosting the show. The vitriol was from how people thought about him personally and not based on his performance on Jeopardy.

      • Ronnie Gambardella | April 3, 2021 at 10:25 pm |

        I had never really heard much of him before he was an annouced as a guest host. With that you may rightfully surmise that current TV shows is my weakest category.

  6. The host’s primary job is to read the clues, and Dr. Oz did the job well.

    • TOD MONROE | April 5, 2021 at 4:26 pm |

      I thought that a couple of times he emphasized the wrong part of a sentence and made a clue seem more confusing that it was but over the course of a couple of weeks, that’s not too bad.
