It is Wednesday, my friends! Today is Day #3 of LeVar Burton’s hosting stint. Thus far, $52,400 has been donated thus far to Reading is Fundamental; the show passed the $2.5 million mark yesterday in total donations to all charities. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Shakespeare’s Plays) for Wednesday, July 28, 2021 (Season 37, Game 218):
“Let’s all sink with the king” is a line from the opening scene of this play
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Saya Signs, a barista & gardening assistant from Brooklyn, New York
|Amanda Michel, a middle school teacher from Dublin, California
|Matt Amodio, a Ph.D student from New Haven, Connecticut (5-day total: $147,800)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Matt has surpassed the 5-win mark and has picked up nearly $150,000, putting him in the upper echelon of the show’s players. If there’s any weakness at this point in his game, though, it’s still the averaging of more than 4 incorrect responses per game. If he can find a way to keep that number down, his chances of winning will be even higher than the 80% that the prediction model here at The Jeopardy! Fan thinks he has.
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.
