Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Famous Americans) for Thursday, February 3, 2022 (Season 38, Game 104):
He was buried in 1969 in one of the World War II uniform jackets named for him
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Zach Gozlan, a data analyst from Washington, DC
|Heather Brice, a retired flight attendant from Brooksville, Florida
|Emma Saltzberg, a consultant from Brooklyn, New York (1-day total: $22,200)
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Emma picked up $22,200 on 2/2/22 yesterday; a number of eagle-eyed viewers picked up on that coincidental piece of numerology yesterday. Heather and Zach take their places today in the hope that they unseat Emma and get to be named Jeopardy! champion themselves. Emma’s chances of defending her title will certainly be helped if she can keep the incorrect responses down; she had five yesterday.
Apropos of nothing: The challenger at the middle lectern hasn’t won since November 8th; the last 7 challengers to win have all come from the rightmost lectern.
Also, the mini-site has been released on the Jeopardy! website about the upcoming prime time college tournament, thus ending my requests for the contestant list and format to be released.
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.)
The “Eisenhower jacket” (“Jacket, Field, Wool, Olive Drab”) was developed in the later stages of World War II and was quickly adopted as a layer of the standard combat uniform. Worn on its own, the jacket was also considered to be the Army’s dress and parade uniform. When the former President died in 1969, he was buried in one of his jackets. Eisenhower is currently interred at the Eisenhower Presidential Center in Abilene, Kansas.
