Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category The Midwest) for Monday, February 14, 2022 (Season 38, Game 111):
At about 90,000 it’s the most populous U.S. city on North America’s biggest lake
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Hung Pham, an assistant adjunct professor from Stanton, California
|Carrie Christian, a healthcare administrator from Rockledge, Florida
|Dave Rapp, a writer from Valley Village, California (1-day total: $30,000)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Ken Jennings returns today as host, as Mohawk-sporting champion Dave Rapp takes on Carrie Christian and Hung Pham. Dave had a very strong game on Friday with plenty of correct responses in the bottom two rows of the board; this bodes well for him, especially if his 45 attempts to buzz in from Friday’s game remains representative.
