CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Kate Wilson's students from Montgomery, Alabama. In 2009, it says here, you were the only English classroom teacher chosen for what?

Kate: For a summer seminar conducted by the National Endowment of the Humanities entirely in French, and it took place in Avignon. Most of my classmates were, uh, French teachers, and we got to experience the French Theater Festival in Avignon. It was incredible.

Alex: So, I take it you're fluent in French, of course.

Kate: Yes. [Laughs]

Alex: Okay. Well, that's good to know.

Kate: Oui.




Alex: Drew Joanides from Miami, Florida, teaches at his high school alma mater, and recently you were inducted into...

Drew: The Florida bar.

Alex: The bar?

Drew: Yes, sir.

Alex: How--why go for the bar now, and how long did it take?

Drew: Well, I'd graduated from law school 14 years before taking the bar, and I decided that it was time to put the period at the end of that sentence, so I went for it.

Alex: Well, good for you. But you're still gonna continue teaching.

Drew: Absolutely. No plans to change careers.

Alex: All right. Good for you.




Alex: Whitney Collins from New York, a 3rd grade teacher at the Browning School. That's an all-boys school, right?

Whitney: It is, yes.

Alex: And they learn chess in kindergarten?

Whitney: They do. It's one of the hallmark programs of our school. Every boy takes it from kindergarten through to 2nd grade, and then a lot of them take it after school, as well. In 3rd, a lot of them continue with it, even though it's not part of the curriculum. But a lot of them go on to national championships.

Alex: Are they all geniuses at this school?

Whitney: They could beat me. I can tell you that. [Laughs]

Alex: Yeah? They could probably beat me very easily, too.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Drew found the Daily Double on the 27th clue. Whitney had $3,000, Drew had $2,600, and Kate was at $3,400. Drew wagered $800.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
F.H. $800: Linda Hunt won an Oscar for playing a man in 1983 & this actress was nominated for playing a man in 2005

ROBOTS & CYBORGS $400: Seven of Nine, a female Borg, turns up on this TV spin-off

(Whitney: What is Star Trek: Deep Space Nine?)

20th CENTURY LITERATURE $800: His "The Long Goodbye" won an Edgar Award for best novel
(Drew: Who is Philip Roth?)

Double Jeopardy! Round Potential Lach Trash: $4,400



FIRST DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Kate snagged the next Daily Double on the 10th clue. Whitney had $7,200, Drew had $5,400, and Kate was at $7,600. Kate wagered $2,000.

NAME THAT BIBLE BOOK $1600: It says, "Salute Andronicus" & "Salute Asyncritus"
(Kate: What is Corinthians |?)

SECOND DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
It was Drew who snatched up the last Daily Double of the game on the 27th clue. Whitney had $7,600, Drew had $13,400, and Kate was at $11,600. Drew wagered $1,400.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND
NAME THAT BIBLE BOOK $1200: It has a 3-letter title in the King James version

TEACHER'S PET $1200: ...is a Flemish giant one of these furry mammals that weighs almost 20 pounds

TEACHER'S PET $2000: ...is a pair of these large blue-eyed cats, Ann & Andy, who go limp & floppy when you pick them up

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Drew: $16,400
Kate: $11,600
Whitney: $9,600

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
BORN & DIED

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
First equals second plus half of third. Stratton's Dilemma.
Drew: Wager $6,800--wagering any more risks falling behind Whitney's wager of $0.
Kate: Risk all $11,600 for the win or tie if you give the correct response (and provided Drew doesn't wager to cover by $1). You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $7,600 (to shut out Whitney) or less than $2,000 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Whitney). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Drew.
Whitney: Anticipating that Drew will wager for the tie rather than to cover by $1, and that Kate will wager everything, you should bet nothing, and you will tie for the win on the Triple Stumper.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
He was born in 1728 in Yorkshire, England & died in a skirmish February 14, 1779 in Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii

FINAL SCORES
Whitney: $9,600 + $2,001 = $11,601 (Who was Captain J. Cook?) (3rd place: $5,000 if eliminated)
Kate: $11,600 + $7,601 = $19,201 (Who is Capt. J. Cook?) (2nd place: $5,000 if eliminated)
Drew: $16,400 + $6,801 = $23,201 (Who is Cook?) (Automatic semifinalist)
(Alex: And here are the other semifinalists.)
(Colby: Colby Burnett, Fenwick High School.)
(John: John Hines, Todd Beamer High School.)
(Marion: Marion Penning, Roland Park Country School.)
(Brenton: Brenton Montie, Centennial Middle School.)
(Alex: Now, as you all know, ladies and gentlemen, there are four wildcard spots for the high scorers among non-winners, and here they are.)
(Marcia: Marcia Edmundson, Prince George High School.)
(Michael: Michael Farabaugh, Monticello High School.)
(Alex: Oh, and there are two others, and they happen to be on stage with us right now--Whitney Collins and Kate Wilson. Come on over, ladies. Each of you gets to be a semifinalist.)

Whitney sounded like she would rather be anywhere else.

0/5 in Year. For some reason, I keep thinking Lincoln died in 1865 instead of 1863, and I just couldn't piece the rest together. Thought I'd go 0/5 in Literature as well, but I recognized Metamorphosis because it was referenced in FoxTrot. Also, Terminator was my only get in Robot; no idea whatsoever on the rest.

Got only Matthew in Bible. Seriously overthought the Job clue — why would it have a 3 letter name in the KJV and not elsewhere? Had no idea how to suss out the DD. Forgot about Joshua Judges Ruth (ohai, Lyle Lovett) being in the OT. I actually knew Joel was the minor prophet, but clammed because whenever they do an "Of X, Y, or Z" clue, I ALWAYS pick the wrong one. (Also, I hate those clues in the first place. Jeopardy! is not supposed to be multiple choice.)

Clammed on Betta fish to keep me at 4/5 in Teacher's Pet. Coincidentally, I actually have both a labradoodle and a ragdoll cat.

Didn't even venture a guess on FJ! All the TOMs in the world are useless when you don't know a freaking thing about the person.

Has a semifinals game ever ended with one finalist and two wild cards before?

My shoutout (well, the loudest one at any rate) of the day: Voyager.

Interesting to see the FJ category match up with the Jeopardy calendar category for today. Cook came to mind right away, and I stuck with him, but I wasn't completely confident about it as I felt I was forgetting someone else who might fit.

Leaving off the G in waiting did leave DIana out of the semi-finals. A normal regular game wager by the leader would have kept them out of the SF and DIana in if wrong.

All three players from a tourney QF game have made the semis before, yes.

For some reason, I keep thinking the same thing.

This is getting a little scary. 3 shows in a row where I have known FJ instantly, almost as soon as the clue was revealed, and no other possible answer ever even entered my mind. I actually got all 5 of the Finals in the quarterfinals, though the first two were pretty much lucky guesses.

Now that I think about it, I didn't really know that today's was Captain Cook, but that was the only remotely possible response that I could have given, and given the relative difficulty level of the past couple of FJs, I was fairly confident that it was going to be correct.

Not to mention, Kate's geeky enough to go for the robots category, yet can't get Voyager after TNG and DS9 are eliminated for her? sigh.

My best J! board of the Teacher's tourney ($15,000), but my second worst overall total ($36,200).

Well, isn't that odd! I too have always thought he died in 1865! I wonder why that is?

I wish this had been a M-F tourney, I went 5-0 in FJs for the quarterfinals. I knew Cook died in Hawaii, wasn't sure of the years but went with him. If you don't know, just guess him or Drake for a British explorers clue.

I figured Isaiah had to be major and Joel won the coin flip for me.

Glad to see the lady from Montgomery advance, but I've never heard of her school.

Count me with those who thought Lincoln died in 1865, I need to find a way keep that straight.

This needs to be a poll choice, Mark, 'cause I thought he died in 1865, too.

Hammer: Have you caught on yet or do I really need to honor the poll request?

The Bible category got me on Job because somehow I processed KJV as New Testament. 3 letter book? Act? That's not right. Job? Oh, Old Testament was in play. Silly me. I'm glad the Romans DD was not a clue for FJ. I couldn't figure it out in DD time and I'm not sure 15 more seconds would have got me there. It made perfect sense after the correct book was named. Ruth for $2000 was much easier.

I had fun guessing and losing money tonight. Gerbil? No I guessed guinea pig. Ragdoll cat? No I guessed Persian blue. DS9? No it's Voyager. Flat head screwdriver? Yeah, I might be the only that did it, but I blurted "Fillips Head." Even as I was saying it I was thinking, "And I always thought the guy was Phillips." :oops:

I know another name for witness stand:



The FJ clue took me two seconds instead of one half since I went with Captain James to go along with Cook. Plug 1779 into the archive and look at the FJ hits. There was no other name I was going to consider.

**********
It looked like the make up person had some extra work to do on Kate. Scar, birthmark, shiner? It's not polite to ask but I have no chance at an answer staying silent. I'm hopeful it's something like a recent clumsy story with a humorous side to it.
