Today is Monday, April 5, 2021. It’s Aaron Rodgers’ first day guest-hosting; all of the contestants’ winnings over his two weeks of hosting will be matched and donated to the North Valley Community Foundation. For those who are football-unaware, and there are a few in the Jeopardy! fandom who are, Rodgers is the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, reigning NFL Most Valuable Player, and Celebrity Jeopardy! winner from 2015. You can find Aaron’s guest host interview at Jeopardy!’s YouTube channel. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy:
Daytime TV Personalities: Accepting a Lifetime Achievement Emmy, he said, “Just take… 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are”
(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.

|Brandon Deutsch, a student from Long Beach, California
|Scott Shewfelt, a writer originally from Tavistock, Ontario, Canada (2-day total: $46,800)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Scott won the final two games of the Dr. Oz era, but a new host will mean a new cadence to get used to. It’s been a very long time since someone has won three games. Will Scott be able to break that curse?
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.)
Fred Rogers, the much-beloved host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on PBS, was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997 at the Daytime Emmy Awards.
In his speech, he said, “All of us have special ones who loved us into being. Would you just take, along with me, 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are, those who cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life. 10 seconds, I’ll watch the time. Whomever you’ve been thinking about, how pleased they must be to know the difference you feel they have made.”
The 2018 documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor was made by Morgan Neville about Rogers’ life.
