Happy Tuesday! Welcome to Day 2 of Savannah Guthrie’s hosting stint. Yesterday, $11,699 was raised for the Bowery Mission. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category American Women) for Tuesday, June 15, 2021 (Season 37, Game 187):
During her second marriage, she split her time among homes in New York, New Jersey, Paris & Greece & a yacht
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Erin Rion, a director of clinical services from Napanoch, New York
|Quan Do, a catalyst development engineer originally from Annandale, Virginia
|Katie Sekelsky, a graphic designer from Kent, Ohio (2-day total: $16,698)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Katie has won twice now thanks to savvy wagering in Final Jeopardy! She’s above average on the signalling device, but she’s also already in the double digits in incorrect responses. If she can keep that statistic low, she’s got a better chance of win number three.
Today’s Clue of the Day for the Alexa sweepstakes: HAVING A POSITIVE ALTITUDE: At an altitude of almost 12,000 feet, the world’s highest capital, La Paz, is in this South American country
Clue of the Day correct response: What is Bolivia?
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.
