Why did Asim get negged so quickly on the 9 to 5 clue? He still had lights showing and hadn't given any wrong info.

The only other possible response was Bigfoot, but as long as you have the slightest clue where the Daily Mail is at, this is unmissable.

I wonder if Tim has ever been mistaken for a young Bill Gates.

Surprised to see "anemia" a TS for 3 strong contestants.

Tim wins with a score of tree-fiddy (x10,000) on the Loch Ness Monster clue.

Well, all those damn ads for the Carole King musical were finally good for something.

I don't think they could've described anemia any better than that, and it was still a TS. Also surprised none of them got Manzanar.

FJ wasn't instaget, but Daily Mail made it pretty obvious.

Those DD wagers were _________. Feel free to fill in the blank.

He first stated Tomlin, and then Alex restated that there were two of them, and I think that when Asim then said Lily Tomlin that Alex was expecting to hear Jane Fonda and just negged him. It's only speculation, though.

It seemed like he was about to add someone else and Alex shut him down.

Which means you-know-who missed it. I spent part of the time wondering what was so special about the year but then noticed the part about the Daily Mail and was home free.

I wouldn't be able to tell you where the Daily Mail is in less than three guesses, but I reasoned out the Loch Ness Monster after about 10 seconds.

I NHO the name of the musical/book they were going for but I knew it had to be about Carole King.

I would definitely pay to see a musical version of The Miracle Worker with Helen Keller singing "I Feel the Earth Move".

Locally, it's the ads for The Lion King that I now see nightly. No matter the musical playing in town (or coming soon) the ads get a lot of air time. Beautiful was one that was not cheated in promo time and it was either LL or Tuesday Trivia that it came in handy for as well.

**********
I'm glad I did not know a couple in the Pachelbel category so that I did not have to look back at colony (penguins & termites) costing me a perfecto for the round.

Ryan played for second place. Mission accomplished. Tim played like someone who expected to win (or was at least confident he'd do well) and the game seemed like just another walk in the park. He must have some other kind of trivia competitions on his resume.

I did not miss the FJ! clue, but I did take my best stab at blowing it. Daily Mail got me overseas and I wrote Jack the Ripper. He's real, so that can't be right. Legend? I thought about changing to Robin Hood. Legend! Oh! Duh! I felt like an idiot as I locked in the correct response. In all it was done in under 10 seconds, but of course about 8 seconds should have been shaved off the solve time.

I ran Pachelbel but did not know colony. I don't know how I can face the... group back home.

Probably too niche for a poll question, but who else knew the Pachelbel piece before it was a cliche? Who else had a vinyl copy from the Musical Heritage Society--the record that also had pieces by Johann Friedrich Fasch with Maurice André playing the trumpet parts?

I was left trying to figure out why Dolly Parton was excluded from the two they were looking for. What was the category/clue?

Alex should not have prompted him when "both women, please" was in the clue - a pause is all right, but not the prompting. At the top of a category if there's some ambiguity about what's required, sure...I don't think he was going to get it anyway, at least not before his light went out...
No clue is unmissable. I know Daily Mail was the TOM, but I'm quite sure British papers could run American photographs in the 1930s as easy as Scottish ones...That's my excuse for Bigfoot, anyway. Loch Ness did not enter my head. The only other response that occurred to me was "fairies," because of the famous fairy photographs. They were about 20 years before, but at least they were in England. I realized that fit the clue even less well than Bigfoot, though...

Parton is not in "Grace and Frankie" - the Netflix series the other two star in.

First, I knew they were looking for the Carole King musical but could not pull out the title in time.

Anemia. Yeah, I got that. (The response, not the disease.) I don't recall the precise game situation but at some point risk aversion sets in.

Manzanar was brought out of deep memory this last weekend when the LA Times had an article which mentioned the Tule Lake internment camp in extreme northern California. Yes, it's 90 miles east of Fresno as the crow flies, but driving there, no. Google Maps takes you south to Bakersfield and then north again for a trip of a couple hundred miles.

FJ! was an instaget too.

Those DD wagers were
__________.
(Adjective)

Several possibilities here. I normally don't analyze Daily Double wagers.

I can't speak to trivia, but he's a former professional Magic: The Gathering competitor (think Ross Merriam from Pranjal Vachaspati's run). From a young age he's been accustomed to playing games for thousands of dollars; Jeopardy! was just a different game from his usual.

http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/Tim_Aten is a bit out of date but a reasonable introduction to the man.
