|Jeff Smith, a music educator from San Diego, California
|Kate Kohn, a communications manager from Washington, D.C.
|Sri Kompella, a corporate strategy professional from Frisco, Texas (1-day total: $30,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: In what is going to be Mayim Bialik’s last game of this 35-game host stint, Sri Kompella is returning champion, winning yesterday after the rare move of not covering second place’s doubled score in Final Jeopardy. An astute challenger at this point would adjust their strategy to betting everything in Final Jeopardy in order to force Sri to cover, which could prove to make things more interesting 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 G.I. Joe Adventure Team—which included Air Adventurer, Land Adventurer, Sea Adventurer, Adventurer, and Adventure Team Commander, among others—were introduced by Hasbro in 1970 as anti-Vietnam sentiment in the late 1960s had caused sales of the original G.I. Joe action figure to fall significantly in 1968. The line was a big hit, with 1972 seeing the biggest sales.
