In the U.S. & its territories, this nonprofit whose roots trace to 1980 fulfills a word in its name every 34 minutes
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Andrew Rafner, a set decorator from Thousand Oaks, California
|Brooke Sachs, a user experience designer from Washington, D.C.
|Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California (12-day total: $483,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy Schneider’s win streak on Jeopardy! is now at 12 games and over $480,000 in winnings. $500,000 is very much attainable today for her. If she does win today, she’ll continue her streak on December 20, as the show’s first-ever Professor’s Tournament begins on Monday.
I commend Jeopardy for continuing to experiment with different tournament formats. The show has always tried new things within the confines of the format. A lot of things—like the Teachers Tournament—worked very well. Others, like the team play of the All-Star Games of 2019, were more of a flop with viewers. But I do commend Jeopardy! for continuing to try new things.
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, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please 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.)
In 1980, Phoenix’s Chris Greicius was a 7-year-old battling leukemia and wanting to become a police officer. The Phoenix community banded together to make Chris’ wish come true before his death later in 1980. This inspired the formation of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which was created to grant wishes of critically ill children by 1981, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America was incorporated in 1983. Now, over 15,000 wishes are granted in the U.S. each year.
