Welcome to the first Wednesday of 2022! Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category The 1950s) for Wednesday, January 5, 2022 (Season 38, Game 83):
The first TV debate between presidential candidates of the same party involved him & future running mate Estes Kefauver
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Chantal Nguyen, a biophysicist from Boulder, Colorado
|Mike Parks, a software engineer from Golden Valley, Minnesota
|Amy Schneider, an engineering manager from Oakland, California (25-day total: $918,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy Schneider is now a 5-time champion five times over, having won five games on each day of the week. Even though she missed Final Jeopardy! yesterday, I still think that she is very likely to pass the $1 million mark by the end of the week.
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.)
On May 21, 1956, Tennessee senator Estes Kefauver was challenging for the Democratic nomination for President, and debated Adlai Stevenson on television in Florida. Stevenson ended up obtaining the Democratic nomination for the second successive election, and the convention selected Kefauver over John F. Kennedy as Stevenson’s running mate. To me, as long as the players can parse the clue quickly enough to realize that all this clue is truly asking is “Who was the Democratic Presidential candidate in the 1950s”, this should be a relatively simple clue to answer.
