Andy’s Pregame Thoughts:
I’m going to sound like a broken record with this, but with six of them to be found on the Celebrity game boards, Daily Double finding will 100% be the order of the day. And this game will absolutely come down to who finds them and who takes best advantage of them. If he finds them, John Michael Higgins realized just how much fun it was to double his score, while Wil Wheaton found the last four in his quarter-final. Joel Kim Booster took a slightly more traditional approach to winning his game last week—being quickest on the signaling device. Whether that will work for him or not in this semifinal is still to be seen. One thing’s for sure, though: Joel Kim Booster earned a lot of props for venturing into last week’s Reddit game thread to join the discussion!
Who will be joining Ike Barinholtz in the million-dollar final in February? We’ll see at the end of tonight!
For those who don’t know, the next episode of Celebrity Jeopardy! will air on Thursday, January 5.
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 can, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.
