Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: In the second of two quarterfinals today, we have Carnegie Mellon senior Kristin Donegan taking on a pair of juniors: Duke’s Anna Muthalaly and Yale’s Sebastian Torres. Interestingly, reports from Kristin’s hometown indicate that Kristin’s twin sister Ciara recently taped a regular-play episode, which will be airing in March. The winner of this quarterfinal will be playing next in Friday’s third semifinal against Northeastern’s Liz Feltner and Minnesota’s Emmey Harris.
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.

Kristin is part of a marching band that wears kilts.
Anna finds inspiration from her high school quiz bowl coach in Hoover, Alabama.
Sebastian watches “It’s Always Sunny…” with his roommates.
- Sebastian should have bet no more than $200 in Final Jeopardy; he would have advanced had he done so.
- Regarding Anna: I posit that fans would not have said a peep had it been a white man with her “vibes” on the show tonight. But because it’s not a white man, people see fit to pile on. Jeopardy! “fans” should be 100% ashamed of their behavior tonight. Dave has been crossing his arms all week to absolute crickets on social media, and yet when Anna does it, it’s somehow worthy of pillorying.
