CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex:
Rachel winer is a graduate student from Vermont who stayed awake for how long as part of a sleep study?

Rachel:
Uh, it was 50 hours.

Alex:
Wow.
How do you stay awake for 50 hours?

Rachel:
Well, they actually had someone in the room with me the whole time to make sure I didn't fall asleep.
But, uh, played a lot of games, and listened to some music.

Alex:
And what did they discover in this study?

Rachel:
Honestly, I have no idea.

Alex:
'Cause then you fell asleep and slept for 50 hours.

Rachel:
Exactly.

Alex:
All right.




Alex:
Meg price from Stillwater, Oklahoma.
A professor of medieval literature.

Meg:
That's right.

Alex:
But you're not from Oklahoma, are you?

Meg:
I'm not originally from Oklahoma, No.

Alex:
With an accent like that, I would say No.
Where are you from?

Meg:
I'm from Wales.

Alex:
Wales.
Beautiful country.

Meg:
Yes, it is.

Alex:
The language leaves a lot to be desired in terms of pronouncing it properly and being able to read it.
For guys like me, it's impossible.

Meg:
Mm-hmm.
There's a lot of spitting.

Alex:
But--but I understand that Welsh is becoming more popular now in schools and there is kind of a renaissance--

Meg:
There is.

Alex:
--of the Welsh language.

Meg:
There's a language movement.

Alex:
So do you speak Welsh?

Meg:
I used to be quite fluent, but I'm little rusty now.

Alex:
Yeah, Oklahoma will do that to you.

Meg:
It will.

Alex:
Okay.




Alex:
Jeff amoros is our champion.
Uh, what's this about--you went boogie boarding in Maine in the summer, and you got hypothermia?

Jeff:
Yes, I did.
The water was about 52 degrees, I was in there for a few hours and got hypothermia.
So my legs started seizing up, and I started drowning in about 2 1/2 feet of water.

Alex:
Wow.

Jeff:
Yeah.
My dad sprinted down, picked me up, carried me out. I got to go to the hospital up in Maine to warm me up.

Alex:
How do they warm you up?

Jeff:
Lobster bisque.

Alex:
Of course, of course.
Why can't I get hypothermia?

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Rachel: $12,200
Jeff: $11,000
Meg: $10,000

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
COINS OF THE WORLD

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Rachel: Wager $9,801 to cover Jeff.
Jeff: You ought to wager to cover Meg, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you ought to choose between wagering $0 or maximizing your winnings with a bet of all $11,000. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $9,000 (to shut out Meg) or less than $8,600 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Meg). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Rachel.
Meg: You ought to try wagering between $1,001 and $7,600. This will top a $0 wager by Jeff while still beating Rachel and Jeff on the Triple Stumper (should Rachel wager to cover Jeff's doubled score and Jeff wager to cover your doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
50 Cent pieces issued in 2003 by this country depict Frodo, Gandalf, Gollum, Sauron & Aragorn

FINAL SCORES
Meg: $10,000 + $2,201 = $12,201 (What is New Zealand?) (3rd place: $1,000)
Jeff: $11,000 + $9,001 = $20,001 (What is New Zealand?) (2nd place: $2,000)
Rachel: $12,200 + $10,000 = $22,200 (What is New Zealand?) (New champion: $22,200)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $8,600

Well, that was certainly a close game! The instaget FJ kinda ruined it, though. Love Meg's accent (and handwriting).

Jeff blew his foot off too many times with the two missed DDs and the phrasing error. Take away one of those and he could have won the game.

The FJ clue had to have some viewers with no shot at home as the names would be unknown and the country just about unguessable. For anyone familiar with the characters and any knowledge of movie trivia then the clue was precious.

This board seems to have a familiar set up to the BAM Bored where I've been hanging out, so that's comfortable. Thanks for getting this set up.

I knew she wasn't really from Oklahoma! :mrgreen:

It was a good game. FJ! was an instaget for me (although I thought about "Gondor" or "the Shire" since the category didn't specify which world :mrgreen: ). I was surprised that "I Love Lucy" and "Gilligan's Island" were TS.

Interesting that they reversed "anteater". I wonder if they would have done the same for my answer of aardvark (Afrikaans for "earth pig")?

Seems like I missed the "fun" - took a while for me to figure out what y'all were talking about.

I at least hope that he doesn't surface at all this week. Doing that with adults is creepy. During Kid's Week, 10<sup>googol</sup> fold more.
