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

Correct response: Who is Jimmie Angel?
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.
