Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Films of the 2000s) for Wednesday, January 19, 2022 (Season 38, Game 93):
One of the screenwriters of this 2001 film described it as “‘Clueless’ meets ‘The Paper Chase'”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Dimitri Apessos, an 8th grade math teacher from New Orleans, Louisiana
|Ashley Chow, a corporate lawyer from Santa Clara, California
|Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California (35-day total: $1,164,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy is now on 35 victories; however, she’s only been able to get 2 of the last 7 Final Jeopardy! clues correct; her average earnings over those 7 days has only been just over $20,000.
Today is the third 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 Films of the 2000s) 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. This is just a fan site; I have no way of troubleshooting any potential issues that may arise. One thing, though: you have to enter the category before 11:59 PM Pacific Time each day.
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.

A 2021 oral history published in The New York Times was the origin of this specific quote, from screenwriter Kirsten Smith. Legally Blonde was originally a much raunchier script, in the vein of American Pie, but it underwent a transformation before it became the movie we’re more familiar with, with Reese Witherspoon portraying Harvard Law student Elle Woods.
