Welcome to the final day of Season 37. It’s the final day of Joe Buck’s guest hosting stint. $129,400 has been donated thus far to Kidsmart. Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category 19th Century American Women) for Friday, August 13, 2021 (Season 37, Game 230):
2 of the 3 women depicted on the first statue of real women in Central Park, unveiled in August 2020
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Rowan Ward, a chart caller and freelance writer from Chicago, Illinois
|Eric Shi, a project manager originally from Houston, Texas
|Matt Amodio, a Ph.D student from New Haven, Connecticut (17-day total: $547,600)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: On this final day of Season 37, whoever wins will return on September 13 to defend their title. One thing to keep an eye out for today: if the winning total is $52,974 or higher, the show will have donated $3 million to charity over the course of the entire guest host stint.
Rowan’s listed their occupation as a chart caller; I think that of all of the guest hosts, Joe Buck is most likely to know what a chart caller is. (A chart caller basically works at a racetrack and watches horse races in detail in order to create the box score, or chart, for each race.)
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.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The statue features three famous American suffragettes, Truth, Anthony, and Stanton, in a statue unveiled August 26, 2020. As an article in Smithsonian Magazine mentioned, though, the statue itself was controversial. The original statue was only originally going to honor Anthony and Stanton, both of whom came under criticism for their failure to support the 15th Amendment, which gave Black men the right to vote. Sojourner Truth was added to the monument in recognition of her work in advancing the cause of Black women in America.
Photographs of the monument, which have Truth, Anthony, and Stanton from left to right, can also be found at the above-linked Smithsonian Magazine article.

Matt Amodio, to win:
19 games: 90.912%
Avg. streak: 28.004 games.
- $159,601 will be donated to Kidsmart; $2,974,227 is the final season total for all charities.
- Matt absolutely made the correct bet in Final Jeopardy – he is more likely to get Final Jeopardy! correct than he is to win a tiebreaker against Rowan—who ran him about as close on the signalling device as anyone has his entire run. Matt’s advantage was only 24-20. And, yes, $1 is the correct bet. While Rowan very likely wouldn’t have, enough challengers historically have failed to make the proper bet from second place to make it very worthwhile to only bet $1.
- This was the first game where Matt did not lead after the Jeopardy! round.
- Counting tournament play, Matt at $574,801 moves to #7 in all-time winnings. Matt Jackson sits #6 at $611.612.
- I like how Joe Buck signed off the way his father Jack Buck used to, “Thanks for your time this time. ‘Til next time, so long”.
