Today’s Final Jeopardy – Friday, July 16, 2021

Happy Friday! Today is the final day of George Stephanopoulos’ hosting stint. Through 4 days, $126,001 has been donated to Share our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category History) for Friday, July 16, 2021 (Season 37, Game 210):

Completed around 1455, it sometimes gets another name because a famous copy was found in the library of Cardinal Mazarin

(correct response beneath the contestants)

Today’s contestants:

Josh Saak, a traffic engineer from Boise, Idaho
Josh Saak on Jeopardy!
Lois Doll, a retired library clerk from Rosemount, Minnesota
Lois Doll on Jeopardy!
Tyler Vandenberg, a Marine officer from Washington, D.C. (2-day total: $41,400)
Tyler Vandenberg on Jeopardy!

Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Tyler is the kind of player who will find the buzzer timing, and then two minutes later has racked up $10,000 because he’s picked up 8-9 clues in a row. Lois and Josh have their work cut out for themselves today.

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.

The Gutenberg Bible is best known as the first book produced on a printing press in Western culture, a copy of the Bible printed by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-1450s. Nearly two centuries later, a copy was found by bibliographers in the library of Cardinal Mazarin in Paris, explaining why it is also called the Mazarin Bible. About 40 copies are still in existence worldwide, including the U.S. Library of Congress.

8 Comments on "Today’s Final Jeopardy – Friday, July 16, 2021"

  1. I kind of like this clue. You don’t have to have ever heard of the Mazarin Bible. If you combine the date, a religious leader, and the fact that the item was found in a library, you have a lot of information.

  2. I am glad to see George S. complete his week as guest host. Don’t get me wrong- he’s a nice guy and he did okay, but “nice” and “okay” don’t encourage viewership in the long run. There is a lot of competition out there, with qualifications much closer to what Alex brought to the great game of “Jeopardy!”

    • Agreed. He held his own for the week, but there are a lot of better choices.

      • I’m fairly sure George is not really interested in hosting Jeopardy for a full time gig. With GMA and This Week he already has plenty on his plate.

    On the contrary, I’m sad to see George go. Thought he and Gupta were the best since Richards.

    We can post who we liked as guest host but you would think they would look at ratings.

    • Anyone who uses ratings as their sole basis of comparison is acting completely improperly. Pre-emptions for news and sports and seasonal factors affect the ratings and will skew the numbers in favour of (or against) certain hosts. Thus, anyone just looking at the raw numbers has no idea how to actually interpret those numbers.

  5. Presumably they’ll be in reruns during August. Any idea when the new permanent host will be announced?
