Happy Monday! Today is Savannah Guthrie’s first day as guest host. All contestant winnings are being matched and donated to the Bowery Mission. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category 19th Century America) for Monday, June 14, 2021 (Season 37, Game 186):
2-word term for the statement saying U.S. policy is “to leave the parties to themselves, in the hope…other powers will (do) the same”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Caitlin Hackett, a radiologist from Ann Arbor, Michigan
|Jonathan Udoff, a business intelligence analyst from San Diego, California
|Katie Sekelsky, a graphic designer from Kent, Ohio (1-day total: $7,999)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Skillful wagering brought Katie the win on Friday’s game and the chance to meet a different guest host along with it. She also was very strong on the signalling device, being in first 25 times. There’s a possibility of a run here if Katie can keep the incorrect response numbers down. To that end, I wish that more contestants were like Katie in terms of their preparations. It’s not difficult to learn how to bet in Final Jeopardy, and even cursory knowledge would help so many people.
This is also a friendly reminder as well that journalists are supposed to hold a politician’s feet to the fire—it is such a crucial tenet of the job, in fact, that I would hesitate to call someone a journalist if they failed to do so—thus, comments criticizing our current guest host for doing her usual job well will very likely result in a permanent loss of commenting privileges on this website.
Clue of the Day for the Jeopardy! Alexa Giveaway: Christine Daae re-appears in “Love Never Dies”, a not-so-successful sequel to this Andrew Lloyd Webber musical
Correct response to Clue of the Day: What is “The Phantom of the Opera”?
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.

Correct response: What is (the) Monroe Doctrine?
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.)
The Monroe Doctrine has been a centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy since the 19th century. James Monroe proclaimed that the United States was to be the protector of the Western Hemisphere, effectively saying that in exchange for the Americans not intervening in the affairs of European colonial powers, that the European colonial powers should not settle the Americas further. Monroe was concerned that European powers were going to attempt to restore the colonial status of newly-independent Central American, South American, and Caribbean states, and was also concerned about Russian interest in the Pacific Northwest. An early use of the Monroe Doctrine was shortly after the Civil War, where the United States sent troops to the border with Mexico in 1867 to pressure France to withdraw its own puppet kingdom in Mexico. (France withdrew.)
