Happy Wednesday, the day of the GEICO Hump Day commercial, and a very nice Hump Day it is! It’s also Day 8 of Mayim Bialik’s hosting stint. Through 7 days, $136,652 has been donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category 1960s Singers) for Wednesday, June 9, 2021 (Season 37, Game 183):
In 2002 Macon, Ga., where he grew up, unveiled a statue of this man who sits overlooking the water, a nod to his posthumous No. 1 hit
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Mara Davis, a conference events manager from Chicago, Illinois
|Shannon Debus-Horn, an attorney originally from Port Charlotte, Florida
|Tim Lopez, a storytelling coach originally from Los Angeles, California (1-day total: $14,400)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Tim picked up a win yesterday in spite of missing Final Jeopardy. If he can have similar stats to yesterday (36% in first on buzzer, 21 correct, etc., aggressive on the Daily Doubles), he has a good chance of picking up Win #2.
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.

Otis Redding died in a December 1967 plane crash, along with four members of his backing band, the Bar-Kays, when the plane that he was on crashed into Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin in poor weather. Redding and his band was travelling between Cleveland and Madison. Released in January 1968, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” was the first posthumous song to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The statue can be found overlooking the Ocmulgee River in Macon’s Charles H. Jones Gateway Park.

- Shannon was in a very difficult spot in that final Daily Double; I think that a bet between $1,601 and $2,399 would have been better than the $1,000 that she bet, though.
