Good morning, and happy Friday! Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Cemeteries & Memorials) for Friday, January 14, 2022 (Season 38, Game 90):
60,000 are at rest in a National Memorial Cemetery opened in 1949 in the crater of an extinct volcano in this state
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Rachel Ostrow, a full-time parent from Arlington, Massachusetts
|Luis Soto, a financial analyst from San Gabriel, California
|Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California (32-day total: $1,101,600)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy Schneider tied James Holzhauer yesterday for #3 on the all-time winning streak list. During yesterday’s game, Amy still held a nearly 3-to-2 advantage in attempts to buzz in (specifically, 47 for her, 32 apiece for Cory and Clark.) I’m still extremely excited about the daily box scores that Jeopardy! will be putting out.
One thing to note, for the viewers who are tuning in because of Amy and generally aren’t fully aware of the show’s general scheduling nuances: New episodes are still scheduled for holidays, and that includes Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday. Moreover, the Rams–Cardinals NFL playoff game is scheduled for ABC and an 8:15 PM ET kickoff on Monday night (with pre-game scheduled for 8:00 PM ET). If you live in TV markets like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, or Portland, make sure to check your local listings.
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 2022 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
Punchbowl Crater in Honolulu, Hawaii is the location for the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, established in 1949 as a memorial for those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Since its establishment, numerous World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans have been interred there, and the location is one of Honolulu’s most-visited tourist locations.
Interestingly, Punchbowl Crater’s first known use was as an altar where the indigenous Hawaiian population offered human sacrifices to their gods. The site had been recommended as a cemetery nearly 50 years prior to the establishment of the National Memorial Cemetery, but it was originally rejected; it was not until during World War II that the Hawaiian territorial government offered the site to the federal government and not until 1948 that construction began, after pressure to find a permanent burial site increased. (Previously, thousands of servicemen had been interred on the island of Guam.)

- Amy passes James Holzhauer for the 3rd-longest win streak in Jeopardy! history.
- With Ken saying “over 1,000 correct responses” and not “1,000 exactly”, it signals to me that the show is counting Final Jeopardy! correct responses in its totals.
- The prediction model currently gives Amy a 1.209% chance of winning 75 games.
- Amy’s strongest days of the week thus far have been Monday and Friday; her weakest are Tuesday and Wednesday.
