Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category 20th Century People) for Thursday, February 10, 2022 (Season 38, Game 109):
In 1946 she was aboard a train to Darjeeling when she heard what she later described as “the call within a call”
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Nick Heise, a technical services engineer from Madison, Wisconsin
|Kelsey Davison, a program manager from Seattle, Washington
|Lawrence Long, a nursing student & stay-at-home uncle from East Bend, North Carolina (3-day total: $74,792)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Lawrence Long, after unseating a 3-day champion himself, has gone to win 3 games of his own. A 4th win is crucial for his Tournament of Champions chances. Lawrence has been a contestant that people on social media have been talking about, though—being introduced as a stay-at-home uncle will do that!
Also, in case you haven’t seen, Jeopardy! announced that a Second Chance Tournament will precede the Tournament of Champions in November. I can’t wait!
Tonight at 8:00pm Eastern/Pacific (7:00pm Mountain/Central), the primetime Jeopardy! National College Championship continues on ABC. This airs separately from the daily syndicated games. If you missed last night, recaps of quarterfinal #3 and quarterfinal #4 can be found here at The Jeopardy! Fan. Separate posts for tonight’s quarterfinals will also be created later.
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.

Correct response: Who is Mother Teresa?
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.)
Mother Teresa was a nun, teaching for the Sisters of Loreto, when on September 10, 1946, she claimed that Christ had spoken to her, telling her to abandon her teaching position to work in the slums of Calcutta. While it took over 15 months of lobbying in order to get permission to leave to pursue this calling, she finally received permission and began the work with what became known as the Missionaries of Charity. She was awarded the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work.

Avg. streak: 1.732 games.
Nick was in the marching band at Notre Dame.
Kelsey was proposed to by K-Pop band Infinite.
Lawrence was a sommelier at a restaurant with 600 types of wine.
- With regard to GIN / RUMMY $800, Kelsey changed her response to an incorrect one (“juniper”) before the ruling on her pronunciation of “sloe” to rhyme with “shoe”. This rule clearly works both ways; thus, I agree with the judges to rule her incorrect on that clue.
