This is currently a placeholder post which will be updated with Final Jeopardy! information and a game recap once it is known. Is this not the game you’re looking for? You can find the recap to the daily syndicated game here, and semifinal #4 here.
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Of the three players in semifinal #3, Emmey was the best on the buzzer (68%), Kristin had 45 attempts, and Liz was the only semifinalist to have 0 incorrect responses. This could make for a very interesting semifinal, especially if Liz isn’t incorrect again.
One other consideration: The bubble spot for the finals is $18,801. Of course, our players have been sequestered—they don’t know what it’ll take to qualify for the finals. All told, I’m very much looking forward to this game!
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.

Emmey learned English country dancing in high school.
Liz holds 4 or 5 different leadership roles at Northeastern.
Kristin is part of the CMU Global Medical Brigades.
- I think it was a bit of a mistake of Emmey not to at least hold back $1, just in case—there’s a nonzero chance of another semifinal zeroing out with this format, and even if you don’t make the final, 4th place is worth an extra $15,000 compared to losing in the semifinals.
