SCORES AT THE FIRST BREAK

Ben: $1,400
Judy: $1,000

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Judy Cole, the first contestant we introduced on the program today, is into word games. In fact, she created two crossword puzzles for the New York Times.
Judy: Yes, I did, about 10 years ago. One of them, in fact, had a game-show theme. I had worked in I've Got a Secret, To Tell The Truth, and You Bet Your Life, but Jeopardy! didn't fit the theme.
Alex: Uh-huh. And what was the other one themed on?
Judy: Movies.
Alex: Movies. Oh, well, that's a popular subject. That would have been fun.
Judy: Yes.
Alex: Do they pay much for crossword puzzles?
Judy: $100. I think they pay a little more these days, but...
Alex: Gosh, third place on our show is $1,000. So, you're doing better here.




Alex: All right, Ben Christenson is an attorney, who, when he informed some judges that he was going to be a contestant on Jeopardy!, what was the reaction?
Ben: One of them audibly gasped.
Judy: [ chuckles ]
Ben: We were sitting in a room where we went around and told a fun fact about each person. And the judges had very interesting fun facts --some of them had taught Turkish judges, some of them had been professional models, and I said, "well, I have aJeopardy!' audition," and that was, I think, perhaps the most impressive thing that anyone in the room said, judging by reaction.
Alex: [ chuckling ] Okay, good for you.




Alex: Andrew Moore, I mentioned on yesterday's program that you've already figured out that you want to set aside some of the money for your kids' college education, but I found out that you also want to build a house with a gourmet kitchen. Why is that?
Andrew: Well, I know my wife wants to build a house with a gourmet kitchen.
Alex: Ah.
Andrew: I think it's one of those things where she has the mental idea of what it looks like, and it's just up to the rest of us to make that happen.
Alex: You could renovate your current home and put in a gourmet kitchen, and it wouldn't cost you as much as going out and buying a new one, you know?
Andrew: But that's not nearly as fun.
Alex: Oh. [ laughter ] Okay, good for you. "Fun" is the important word.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
IT'S GETTING "LATE" $1000: I'm grateful for all the help way back when, but... this Janet Jackson song title

THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S SPORTS HALL OF FAME $200: Althea Gibson
Andrew: What is track?
Judy: What is track and field?

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Andrew: $12,800
Ben: $3,000
Judy: $2,600

FIRST DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE

KING OF THE HILL $2000: Pico Del Teide in the Canary Islands,
since 1975
(Andrew: Who is [*] II?)
(Alex: King Juan Car--No! Just [*]--not the second--so that cost you.)

SECOND DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE

ASIAN RELIGION $1200: (Kelly of the Clue Crew delivers the clue from Banteay Srei Temple in Cambodia.) In a lopsided
and unusual arrangement,
Banteay Srei's
northern sanctuary
was dedicated to Vishnu,
while the central
and southern sanctuaries
were dedicated
to this Hindu deity --
the destroyer

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Andrew: $23,200
Judy: $11,800
Ben: $8,600

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
CARTOON CHARACTERS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Crush for first place.
Andrew: Wager $401 to cover Judy, but no more than $5,999 so as not to fall behind Ben's doubled score.
Judy: You have the hope of surpassing Andrew if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $11,401 to force Andrew to wager to win while also protecting your position from being usurped by Ben.
Ben: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
She first appeared in 1930s "Dizzy Dishes" along with singing cats in flapper outfits

FINAL SCORES
Ben: $8,600 + $2,000 = $10,600 (Who is Betty Boop?) (3rd place: $1,000)
Judy: $11,800 + $11,600 = $23,400 (Who is Betty Boop?) (2nd place: $2,000)
Andrew: $23,200 + $401 = $23,601 (Who is Betty Boop?) (5-day champion: $131,003)

by the Nazis

Alex: Our champ has won every game he's played.

WOW! Really? What are the odds?


Thought Andrew had a difficult wagering decision on the late DD, going for the lock left him vulnerable to losing his lead. (I think, during the action it seemed like it was pretty close)

Anyone else notice that the (new) Myanmar flag was flying outside the temple in Cambodia on the last clue? Or am I the only uber-nerd?

Wouldn't have expected "Bed" to be that tough, but I just couldn't decipher anything other than $200.

"Late hit" seemed a bit rough for $200. Likewise, Althea Gibson, as she was the only TS.

I went 0/5 in the women, having heard of none of them. Also went 0/5 in 70s.

====

Missed $400 in Animal because I couldn't figure out what they wanted, and $800 because I couldn't think of any other sheep-like animal except goat, and "force" had me thinking "buffalo" somehow. (I think it was those Frontier DSL "You can't get BS from a buffalo" ads.)

"Leaving on a Jet Plane" was way overvalued at $2000. I went 3/5 there, missing $400 and $1600. Once again, props to Todd in the Shadows for informing me how awful a song "Like a G6" is.

Getting the first two right in Asian Religion was two more than I thought I'd get.

====

Cartoon Characters? Yeah, no way am I missing this one.

With five wins & $131,003, Andrew moves into second place in the 2013-14 ToC standings.

I have decided that Andrew resembles Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears quarterback.

Judy Cole talked about being a cruciverbalist in her interview, and having them published in the NY Times about 10 years. Turns out that COle constructed the June 3, 2003(Tuesday) and October 22, 2003(Wednesday) NY Times crossword puzzles.

For the most part I liked the clues that were used on this board, but man there were some overvalued ones in the bottom row ("Jenner," "Portland," "Peter, Paul, and Mary").

Literature is usually a good category for me but I went 1/5 in the "Novels from Characters" category. I was thrown by the Gulliver's Travels clue from the fact that Jonathan Swift was mentioned in the J! round.

I got the Zimbabwe clue at $2000 but I thought that it should have had more of a TOM. It helped to remember David Skaar's fourth game.

I had no idea on FJ. I guessed Tweety Bird.

Andrew is undoubtedly good and has a solid knowledge base but he definitely has some holes, too. I feel like he has benefited a good deal from buzzer speed. Not that it really matters in terms of strategy, but I like the poker face that he has on DDs and the FJ clues. I have enjoyed watching him and am looking forward to seeing what he can do in the ToC!

I think they put the easy clues at the bottom because they knew Andrew would start there (instead of everyone else who starts with the easy clues at the top rows) ;)

I wonder if Andrew recognized that getting the final $400 clue correct would still leave him short of the lock? I noticed that, and in fact allowing the others to ring in (hoping for Judy/miss) would've given him a lock tie, then he could opt to go for the lock if he knew it, or accept the l/t if he wasn't sure.
Instaget final. This is like a big ol' albatross on my neck. 51 now. Watch out, Joe D.

Someone on TWoP thinks he looks like Neil Finn of Crowded House fame, and I'd have to agree.

Congratulations again, Andrew!

You're not the only one. How was New York City "named twice"?

(And my apologies to the poster on the Sony board who says I'm wrong to put the question mark outside the quotation marks.You'll have to learn to live with it. Be very glad you don't have mbclev's miserable life.)

...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Adding the II to Juan Carlos nearly cost him the game.

Another big win for Andrew, hoping he becomes a superchamp Monday.

Instaget FJ, though a bit surprised it was a triple get as I don't think I've ever seen a Betty Boop cartoon.

I knew someone would jump all over the NY NY, so I went for a single quick post and was still too late.

Balfour = Kidnapped has me counting 9 hits in the archive and Althea Gibson has 10 - Andrew is going to be a lot better come TOC time by running through games there.

Andrew has found 12/15 DDs. KJ was 8/15 and David Madden was 11/15.

When I saw the FJ clue I wrote Blondie. No sooner was I done that I realized I had the wrong B and switched to Betty Boop. If it had been a regular clue I probably would have messed it up.

Zach: Thanks for the research on Judy's puzzles. I was curious.

Well, her maiden name was Boopadoop.
