Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Myths & Legends) for Monday, November 15, 2021 (Season 38, Game 46):
This legendary place has been identified as being in Caerleon, Wales & in Winchester, England
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Jeff Meyers, an accountant from Redondo Beach, California
|Molly Karol, a CPA from Austin, Texas
|Andrew He, a software developer from San Francisco, California (3-day total: $107,101)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Last week, Andrew He won more in his first three games than recent 5-time champion Tyler Rhode won in his victories. Andrew comes back today looking to solidify his Tournament of Champions chances. One thing that Andrew will need to improve on, though, if he wants a lengthy run: He’s only 4-for-7 on Daily Doubles.
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.)
Camelot, the chief home of King Arthur from English mythology, has been placed in a number of locations around the island of Great Britain, including Caerleon in Wales, Cadbury Castle in Somerset, Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, and Winchester in Hampshire, with Caerleon and Winchester holding the most convincing claims. Caerleon’s claims come from a series of Welsh stories named Mabinogion, whereas Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur places Camelot at Winchester Castle.

Jeff went to Disneyland the day before it closed before the pandemic.
Molly attended the opening of the Austin FC stadium.
Andrew had a donkey as an unexpected dinner guest in Croatia.
- Andrew becomes the 9th player to win at least $125,000 over their first 4 wins on the show; $138,202 is the 5th-best 4-day total.
- Today’s is the 8th regular-play game since October 2004 in which all 3 Daily Doubles were responded correctly for the maximum possible wager.
- Viewers are reminded that since November 2014, ties after Final Jeopardy! are settled with a tiebreaker clue. This makes betting $1 the correct bet from the lead. Even with his current statistics on Final Jeopardy, Andrew is definitely more likely to get Final Jeopardy! correct and win the game in Final than his chances of winning would be if he didn’t bet, hoping that Molly would either miss Final, not bet enough, or win a tiebreaker.
