OPENING REMARKS
Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to our show. Well, our champion Adam must feel as if he's in the Garden of Eden, having won over $36,000 in two appearances. But, there's a price for that. You have to defend. You have to play again. And today he faces Diane and Brad. Look how serious and determined they appear to be.

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Diane Mezzanotte is from Laurel, Maryland, and she may be in trouble with her coworkers because they kinda blame you for something very serious. What?

Diane: Yes, something that happened many years ago. Our workplace cafeteria used to have beer machines next to the soda machines.

Alex: Really?

Diane: Yes, and one day I saw, um, some high school work-study students loading up their duffel bags in preparation for a weekend party.

Alex: Ah.

Diane: I thought there was a problem with that, and I wrote to upper management, and two weeks later the beer machines disappeared. I don't think it was just because of me, but my coworkers will never let me forget that.

Alex: I think it was because of you, and I think in that circumstance you did the right thing.




Alex: Brad Tytel from Brooklyn, New York. A global health consultant who works to do what, exactly?

Brad: Well, so what I do is I work with organizations, foundations, nonprofits, or companies that are doing, uh, working on health issues in very poor countries.

Alex: Are we talking about NGOs, non-government organizations?

Brad: NGOs, companies, I mean any group that's doing things that are helping improve health in poor countries. Sort of specializing in that particular subject area.

Alex: Okay, are we concentrating in any one country right now, or any one area of the world?

Brad: I mean, it's mainly Africa and South Asia.

Alex: There's a great need in Africa, certainly.

Brad: Yeah.

Alex: I've been there many times. Good for you.




Alex: Adam Holquist is our champion. He is from Erie, Pennsylvania, and like so many people who are winners on Jeopardy!, they start thinking about, "How do I spend the money?" Travel. That's a good thing. Where do you want to go that you haven't been?

Adam: We'd love to go to France. My wife has family in France, an uncle and cousins and stuff, and we've never been over to visit. Ah, I mean she's been over to visit. I have never been over to visit.

Alex: Have you been to Europe at all?

Adam: I have not, so...

Alex: Oh, so this would be a great experience.

Adam: It would be a great place to start.

Alex: Yes, the grand voyage. Alright.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Brad found the Daily Double on the 28th clue. Adam had $6,600, Brad had $3,200, and Diane was at $800. Brad wagered $1,200.

Weather warnings here wiped out the pre-chat portion of the show here, but what a job by Adam.

On FJ, for once I read the entire answer, especially the part about it being on "U.S.territory" and looked for somewhere that wasn't a state.

DVR will probably do it automatically, it did during the NCAA tourney anyway. Throws off my routine though :P

Dionosus??

Anyway, instaget FJ, even though I wasn't as confident as I should've been, since they lowered the difficulty by specifically excluding St. Augustine.

Very impressive win. Not the best pair of challengers (no offense), but Adam might stick around for a while.

And how about Alex's "Be careful" during the "wind screen" clue? What was that about?

I'm guessing "windshield" would have been negged.

My wife was freaking out about that one too. I guess they just figured it wouldn't matter in the results and didn't want to eat up time stripping those dollars.

Just a brutal week for me so far. Better than yesterday, and I was held under 20 right on DJ mostly because time ran out, but only $27,400 and a miss on a geography FJ, which is always irksome. I had Santa Fe as well - it's not actually older than St. Augustine (from a European standpoint) now that I look it up, but I was thinking about it being the oldest capital, I guess. Of course, once Alex said "Caribbean" I immediately recognized my mistake, which in hindsight was obvious. I just couldn't make that leap. So now I'm 0/4 on FJ for the week. This is my sixth week keeping score and it's been by FAR the worst. If I ever get called, hopefully I've gotten this out of my system by then. Blech.

That's what I'm getting from the warning.

Said Santa Fe for FJ!.

Ran the Stock Symbols in J!, and "Wind" in DJ!

4/5 in 3-"D". I have never heard of being "dredged" with flour, and negged with "dusted", which I have heard of with flour.

3/5 in Adam Sandler. I didn't realize Anger Management had Sandler in it, and clammed on Zohan because I wasn't sure if there was a "The" in the title.

0/5 in Monarchs of England, of course.

I swear, every time they have a clue on a Greek god or goddess, it's a totally different TOM. I know I studied the Greek gods in 6th grade, but none of that sounded familiar.

Also 0/5 on Ball. I thought the $800 was so bizarrely worded that I couldn't figure out what they were even trying to say.

Did anyone notice that the first 14 clues picked in DJ! formed π on the board?

Was hoping to finish Cats and Dogs.

No guess on FJ! Even "Caribbean" didn't narrow it down one iota.

I wondered about that too.

"Windscreen" is the British term for windshield, so I agree that windshield would have been ruled wrong.

FJ took me a few seconds, but reading the word "territory" in the clue and knowing Santa Fe wasn't established in the 1500s led me to San Juan.

Way to go, Adam!

I didn't even know one of my best friend's sister Diane was going to be on tonight until I started watching! He had told me months ago that she'd be on in April, but figured he would send me a reminder once he knew the exact date. Good thing I DVR each show. Anyway, Diane did well, but Adam is just too much for anyone to handle right now. Another great win!

Interesting game tonight, and I enjoyed seeing some of my fave categories, including British Monarchs, which I swept.

As a N.H. resident, I apologize in advance for one of our alleged famous hometown boys, Adam Sandler... ick.

FJ was an Instaget... for the missus. I leapt to Santa Fe, and she correctly picked up the key phrase "territory" in the clue, and nailed it with San Juan. Once again, a very, very important lesson on how *every* word in a clue serves some important purpose.

Congrats to Adam. Quite the powerhouse, and looking forward to seeing how far he can go.

I negged on it with "Don't Mess with the Zohan" just as happened on the show. As soon as I said it I corrected myself, but clearly that would have been ruled wrong since my first answer lacked the "You." 4/5 prior to that, though. I found it odd that Happy Gilmore was the 800.
