(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Max Nupen, a tutor from Irvine, California
|Ellen Clarke, an attorney from Atlanta, Georgia
|Mike Nelson, an actor originally from Chesterton, Indiana (2-day total: $37,400)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Mike won yesterday from second place after a Triple Stumper Final Jeopardy; he faltered a bit in Double Jeopardy as Logan found buzzer mojo. Mike will need to regain momentum in order to have a better chance of winning Game #3.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

By the time that General Motors closed down the Oldsmobile brand in 2004, it was the oldest automotive brand in the United States. The marque was founded in 1897 by Ransome E. Olds (by 1908 it was part of General Motors); it was best known for its luxury models, such as the Cutlass Supreme and the Eighty Eight. Its final car was an Alero GLS 4-door sedan.
