Today’s Final Jeopardy – Monday, June 21, 2021

Welcome back to another week of recaps here at The Jeopardy! Fan! Through 5 games, $105,801 has been donated to the Bowery Mission on behalf of Savannah Guthrie. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Reference Books) for Monday, June 21, 2021 (Season 37, Game 191):

Emily Dickinson made frequent use of a work by this family friend & said that for several years, it was “my only companion”

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

Michael Tran, a Ph.D. student from El Monte, California
Michael Tran on Jeopardy!
Jessica Newman, an attorney originally from Irvine, Kentucky
Jessica Newman on Jeopardy!
Emily White, a public relations specialist from Wilmington, Delaware (2-day total: $50,100)
Emily White on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Emily has bet very aggressively over her two victories, much to the delight of the viewers and the Bowery Mission alike. Her chances of victory, though, will likely depend on how well she does on the 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.

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.)

Noah Webster founded Amherst College with Emily Dickinson’s grandfather Samuel Fowler Dickinson; after Dickinson’s family purchased a copy of the 1844 edition of Webster’s dictionary, the American Dictionary of the English Language. Dickinson referred to that dictionary as her “Lexicon”, relying on that dictionary significantly in her work. That 1844 edition was also the final edition that Webster worked on in its entirety. Dickinson scholars, thus, need to be familiar with that 1844 edition in order to best understand her work.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Through 6 days, $121,680 has been donated to the Bowery Mission. $1,816,656 has been donated to all charities.
  • While it’s always disappointing not to see all 61 clues, we’re still on a much better pace than previous seasons, and a combined 15 incorrect responses didn’t help today.

  1. Hopefully, there is going to be a 4-day or 5-day champion. So far, there have been many 3-day champions ever since Ken Jennings’s last episode of hosting.

  2. Brad (not Rutter) | June 21, 2021 at 4:59 pm |

    At this rate we’ll be seeing 2 game champs in the ToC. But well done to Mike.

  3. Guess we’ll never know if it was a lack of situational awareness or what, but Emily made a big tactical error in not ringing in on the last clue, and guessing something. She had $5,800, Michael had $14,000, and it was a $2,000 clue. A quick glance should have told her she had less than half his total, so she had to go for it. The only clue left on the board was a $400.
