Welcome to a new week of recaps here at The Jeopardy! Fan; today is Robin Roberts’ first day of guest hosting. This week’s winnings are being matched by the show and donated to Be The Match. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category The 50 States) for Monday, July 19, 2021 (Season 37, Game 211):
Both in the Pacific, they are the 50 states’ 2 biggest islands in area; one is about 40 degrees colder in winter than the other

|Meg O’Hare, a product manager from Somerville, Massachusetts
|Allison Pistorius, an actress & college professor from Dallas, Texas
|Josh Saak, a traffic engineer from Boise, Idaho (1-day total: $18,395)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Josh put up a very strong performance on the signalling device on Friday in winning his first game. Will he be able to keep that buzzer timing, though, with a new host? If he can, he’s a good bet to take win #2 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.
