Good morning, and happy Hump Day! $145,680 has been donated to The Bowery Mission through 7 games of Savannah Guthrie hosting—today is episode 8 of her 10-episode hosting stint. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Famous Women) for Wednesday, June 23, 2021 (Season 37, Game 193):
In 1983, 20 years after her famous first, she was honored on a one-ruble coin
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Danielle Linn, a historian & auctioneer from Cincinnati, Ohio
|Joel Simeone, a sports information assistant from Azusa, California
|Sandy Olive, a high school English teacher from St. Louis, Missouri (1-day total: $21,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Sandy won $21,000 yesterday, playing very well without the help of any Daily Doubles. Picking those up—if only to keep her opponents from making a comeback—will be helpful for Sandy being able to continue her run.
Today’s Clue of the Day for the Alexa sweepstakes: IN A BOTTLE: This company says the best way to get ketchup out of its glass bottles is to tap the “57” on the neck
Clue of the Day correct response: What is Heinz?
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.
