Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, July 14, 2021

Happy Wednesday! Today is Day 3 of George Stephanopoulos’ hosting stint; through 2 games, $78,601 has been donated to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Animation) for Wednesday, July 14, 2021 (Season 37, Game 208):

These characters first seen onscreen in a 1938 film are known in Spain as Juanito, Jorgito & Jaimito

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

Angela Gelineau, a project manager consultant from Franklin, Massachusetts
Angela Gelineau on Jeopardy!
Tyler Vandenberg, a Marine officer from Washington, D.C.
Tyler Vandenberg on Jeopardy!
Tim Moon, an attorney originally from Syracuse, New York (2-day total: $72,601)
Tim Moon on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Tim came back incredibly strong, buoyed by a $10,000 Daily Double wager yesterday. Hopefully, that aggression carries over to putting a game away instead of playing catch-up, but Tim has showed that he’s an incredibly strong player that is very capable of qualifying for the Tournament of Champions if the stars align for him.

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.

  1. Knowing Spanish is most helpful with this FJ. The male, diminutive suffix on all 3 names is a pretty big clue. Let’s hope no one spells “Louie” with an “s”.

  2. I thought the opposite about Spanish, i.e. you might be puzzled if you translate the names.

  3. We have friends who lived in Singapore for five years and they had a set of three Chinese figurines named Fu, Shu, and Lu. Our friends called then Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

  4. Another option I thought of was maybe the Jetsons but the rhyming of the words led me to Huey, Dewey and Louie and couldn’t think of who else besides George and Jane Jetson…

  5. I appreciate the fact that in the store there is a shirt that reads “shirt”. Yeah like I couldn’t already see it was a shirt 🙂

  6. With a 2 day win over $72K, and an 80% chance to win a 3rd game, today’s results must be particularly disappointing for Tim.

    Congratulations to Tyler for a healthy win and Thank You, Sir, for your service.

  7. Huey Dewey and Louie were my guesses as well since Donald duck cartoons were my favorites growing up especially with his nephews since spanish names here are very helpful. Congrats to Tyler on his win and we thank him for his service!

    Well, so much for Tim, but Tyler has potential.

  9. Michael R | July 14, 2021 at 5:03 pm |

    Tyler’s uniform seems pretty sparse for an officer. Must be fresh out of the Naval Academy. His bar looks blue in the stillshot, but must be silver, or 1LT. Good luck to him on J! and his military career!

  10. Zach Hicks | July 14, 2021 at 6:01 pm |

    You could feel the energy shift when Tyler hit his stride.

  11. Oorah Tyler! Nice win. Looking forward to see what happens tomorrow.

  12. The last contestant I remember playing in uniform (though I am likely missing somebody) was 3-game winner Manny Abell.

  13. Tyler went right after Canadian Provinces and Territories, getting four of the answers including a daily double. Many contestants stay away from that category.

  14. After watching a very strong player lose after winning two games, my appreciation for Ken Jennings’ accomplishments grows exponentially.

    Good luck to our new champ and thank you for your service.

  15. It would probably have been easier if Universal had done a live action remake of the original in recent years!
