Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Rivers) for Thursday, July 1, 2021 (Season 37, Game 199):
In “Notes on the State of Virginia”, Thomas Jefferson said the most beautiful river on Earth is this one no longer in Virginia
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Leanne Zobrist, a law clerk from Boyds, Maryland
|Marciano Lopez, a bartender from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
|Courtney Shah, a community college instructor from Portland, Oregon (3-day total: $58,100)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Courtney has been the only player to get Final Jeopardy! three games in a row, now winning from first, second, and third. The prediction model only puts her chances of 35% to break the recent string where we haven’t had any 4-day champions. I’d certainly like to see more Tournament of Champions qualifiers.
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.

In his “Notes on the State of Virginia”, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The Ohio is the most beautiful river on earth. Its current gentle, waters clear, and bosom smooth, and unbroken by rocks and rapids, a single instance only excepted.” Running from Pittsburgh in the northeast to the Mississippi River at Cairo, IL in the southwest, it served as the northwestern border of colonial Virginia; since then, both Kentucky and West Virginia have been carved out of Virginia territory, taking the state’s claim to the Ohio River with it.
