Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy picked up her 34th victory in last night’s game; if she finishes the week as champion, she ties Matt Amodio’s win count. I’ve also restarted the toteboard; I now compare Amy with Matt, Ken Jennings, and James Holzhauer.
And, because I know that Mark Barrett over on JBoard enjoys this sort of information: As best as I can tell, Taryn is the first Taryn—spelled with one R or two—to appear on the show.
Today is the second day of the JEOPARDY! Explore Alaska Sweepstakes. Winners will discover iconic, wild Alaska on an expedition aboard one of Lindblad’s 100-guest sister ships, National Geographic Quest or National Geographic Venture, accompanied by a team of naturalists, certified photo instructors, an undersea specialist and a wellness instructor.
To enter the JEOPARDY! Explore Alaska Sweepstakes, viewers are invited to tune-in to JEOPARDY! every weekday and enter the daily Final Jeopardy! category (today’s is Awards Around the World) on the sweepstakes entry webpage, sweepstakes.jeopardy.com. Then, they will be entered for a chance to win an expedition for two exploring authentic Alaskan coastal wilderness from the unique vantage of a small ship. Each winner and their guest will receive round-trip coach-class air transportation from the winner’s closest major gateway airport, $1,000 US spending cash, as well as all shipboard accommodations, meals (excluding alcoholic beverages), and activities for travel valid in 2022 or 2023.
I would also like to remind the readers that the above information is provided in order to be helpful to readers. This is just a fan site; I have no way of troubleshooting any potential issues that may arise. One thing, though: according to the official rules, you have to enter the category before 11:59 PM Pacific Time each day. However, it appears as though there may be a server misconfiguration in that it already thinks it’s tomorrow. Please don’t comment to that effect here; I’m sure the show will attempt to fix it.
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.
