Good morning! Today is Wednesday, April 7, 2021. Aaron Rodgers wasn’t trolled yesterday like he was on Monday; the North Valley Community Foundation has received $53,625 through Aaron’s first two games as guest host. Meanwhile, the LeVar Burton petition has gained a second wind — there are going to be a very large number of angry fans if LeVar isn’t given a chance to host (as I said a few months ago). Anyway, here’s today’s Final Jeopardy:
Notorious: In 1897 she was accused of a much lesser crime, shoplifting in Rhode Island
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Sebastián Martínez Valdivia, a public radio reporter from Columbia, Missouri
|Amy Rey, a market researcher from Lawrenceville, New Jersey
|Brandon Deutsch, a student from Long Beach, California (2-day total: $47,625)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Brandon is two wins in, and his wins have been strong. Aaron Rodgers’ hosting (much cleaner in-studio than some of his predecessors) may lead to the so-called “two-game curse” ending. We haven’t had a 3-game champion since early February. Will today be the day that ends?
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 Lizzie Borden?
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.)
Four years after she was acquitted of murdering her father and stepmother, Lizzie Borden was accused of theft at the Tilden-Thurber art gallery in Providence, Rhode Island. The owners of the gallery decided to use the threat of negative publicity to blackmail Borden into confessing to the murders. Details of this were not released until the 1950s.
