Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Happy Tuesday! Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category U.S. National Parks) for Tuesday, April 27, 2021 (Season 37, Game 152):

This subtropical region is a biosphere reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site &, as of 1947, a National Park.

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

John Prokop, a legal assistant from Uncasville, Connecticut
John Prokop on Jeopardy!
Dana Schumacher-Schmidt, an English professor from Tecumseh, Michigan
Dana Schumacher-Schmidt on Jeopardy!
Kelly Donohue, a bank examiner from Winthrop, Massachusetts (3-day total: $79,601)
Kelly Donohue on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Kelly extended his win streak to 3 games yesterday after another strong game. He’s put three solid games together. To me, he plays a game reminiscent of many of the champs of the 1990s. Unfortunately, that also means he could probably be dethroned by a player that is able to take better advantage of Daily Doubles.

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.

A park in the area of the Florida Everglades was established in 1934 in order to protect the vastly diminishing wetland area; a large portion of the original area had been drained in order to allow for large-scale growth in the South Florida area. The area was dedicated as a National Park by Harry S. Truman in 1947.

  1. Can’t wait to see the play-by-play to maybe figure out what happened to Kelly. He lost 5K in a DD, yes, but after 3 great wins, what caused him to crash and burn when 1 more win of $20,399 would have gotten him to $100K!
    And the revolving door goes round and round…

    • Yes he had 3 wins but his percentage of incorrect responses has been quite high and he needed to bring that down. With a total of 15 incorrect answers and 84 correct its only luck that you continue as champion and this game had 6 incorrect responses which was higher than his other games.

  2. John doesnt know betting strategy. He had less than half of Dana’s total so he had no chance to win. He had more than twice Kelly’s total so he should not have bet more than $4799 to assure second place. If he had missed this FJ, he wouldve lost $1000 that he didn’t have to risk.

    Did Kelly flash the White Power sign when Ingrid????!!! If it wasn’t that, wth was it???

    Dana played a steady game and was particularly good in the latter stages of Double Jeopardy! to pull away for the win. She looks to have the poise to mount a winning streak — would be good to see!

  5. Dana answered with 7 words when she said “I am the king of the world.” Cooper said the answer had 6 words and I believe it is “I am king of the world.” Checkers didn’t catch the goof.

  6. My bad. I think the correct answer is “I’m the king of the world.” Dana may well have said that, and it is 6 words. Moral: check before commenting.
