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 for today’s syndicated game here.
Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Of the three players in this final, Raymond was definitely the most dominant (95 attempts, 61.05% buzzer percentage); Jaskaran has had 83 attempts (57.83% buzzer percentage), and Liz has had just 67 (38.81% on the buzzer). If Liz is able to get more of a hang of the signalling device, though, things could get very interesting. (And after all, that’s why they actually play the game and don’t just hand out the title based on paper.)
Today’s final is a two-game total-point affair, with the score from the first half-hour added to the score to the second half-hour to determine the overall champion.
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.

- Congratulations to Jaskaran – he dominated on the signalling device and that led to him finding all six Daily Doubles. It’s hard to beat someone when they find all of the Daily Doubles.
- Kudos to Raymond for going 6-for-6 at the $2000 level in Game 2, but it wasn’t enough.

I got Gallium (thanks to Caesar) AND The Gilded Age (thanks to Mr. Clemens) 🙂
Congratulations Jaskaran! And nice work realizing you didn’t need to risk anything in the last FJ.
I do not understand why Jeopardy continues to send out a host who is unable to pronounce words and names correctly. “Edinburgh” is not complicated or arcane. Neither is “nuptials.” Since this clearly is an area of difficulty for Mayim, the show needs to have someone go over the correct pronunciation of each clue’s words with her before each game.
This is a game about knowledge, about facts, about getting things right. This should not be that difficult.
you mean like Alex Trebek saying the word “genre”?
He did take it very seriously. And although he took some gentle ribbing from time to time — “genre” perhaps being the most famous example — the care he took in practicing his pronunciation of foreign words and phrases showed he understood how important that was to the game.
How can you expect the players to know the answers when the host can’t even read the questions properly?
The word “genre” is French. Alex was French Canadian and spoke French. He was pronouncing the word the way it’s should be pronounced.
Some say tomayto and some say tomahto. Same word just pronounced differently. Do you want to compare IQs with her?
I don’t think your assessment of this situation is as cut-and-dried as you make it out to be, especially as others here appear to have conflicting viewpoints on the matter.
Perhaps you should be comparing Mayim to other current hosts, rather than to the legendary deceased host.
Will Jaskaran play in ToC?
Yes, the show has confirmed that Jaskaran has qualified for the ToC.
Do you know if there will still be Teen Tournaments in the future? I’m interested in taking the test, just for fun 🙂
Possibly? I don’t know. There will be a test in advance if there is one.
Players have gotten SO GOOD that I wish for the ToCs they would create a randomizer that would pick the next clue instead of the prior correct-answer contestant picking one. When it randomly comes up on a Double Jeopardy, let that contestant be the one who gets it or let them all “buzz” for it like any fully-exposed clue. [I recommend the latter.] I just feel like for a panel of REALLY GOOD contestants, I would rather see a game which was being played that way.
OOPS, I meant ‘Daily Doubles’ — Double Jeopardy and “Single” Jeopardy would be played the same way.
It’s called a Daily Double. Double Jeopardy is the round.
I know. I had just accidentally typed Double Jeopardy (in the first, longer comment) instead of saying ‘Daily Double’ and I was correcting myself (over an hour before you did).
