CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Hillary Kwiatek is from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. But where do you live currently?

Hillary: No, I live in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Alex: And you have an organic garden...

Hillary: That's right.

Alex: Right in the heart of town.

Hillary: That's right, right in my urban backyard. I started with a little plot after a storm took our apple tree down and gave me all this full sun, and in the last few years, I've quadrupled it in size, and I feed my family all summer.

Alex: Good for you. That's great.




Alex: Parth Sheth from Atlanta, Georgia --medical student who did a research internship for NASA. What was that all about?

Parth: That's correct. The summer after my junior year of high school, I was out here working at JPL in Pasadena. I was working on the stereo mission.

Alex: Which is...?

Parth: And that's a --NASA launched two satellites essentially to take pictures of the Sun to combine them and get 3-D images. So, I worked on some of the software to combine those images into 3-D pictures.

Alex: Good for you.




Alex: Jared Hall is our champion. He's a recent college graduate. He has been very successful in earning money on our program, but he's earned money on television before --when you were, what, 2 years old?

Jared: Yeah, I was infant/toddler-aged. My mother was and still is a working actress, doing stage and commercial work, and one time, she went to a commercial shoot. She brought me along. The young child who was there wasn't cooperating, so they decided to put me in front of the camera, and I was in a grocery-store commercial back when I was about 2 years old, so I made some money off that.

Alex: Show biz is your life. [Laughter]

Jared: I guess so.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
FEMALE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNERS $1000: Rigoberta Menchu kept her Nobel Prize in Mexico while in exile from her homeland, this Central American neighbor

THAT'S THE STORY $800: Though its name harks back to medieval times, this genre of mystery & terror thrived from 1790 to 1820

THAT'S THE STORY $1000: This adjective follows "penny" in a term for a cheap lurid novel of 19th century England

WORDPLAY $600: "You don't know? Come on, take a dot in the shark" is an example of this
(Alex: Instead of "a shot in the dark," "a dot in the shark." That's a [*].)

WORDPLAY $1000: (Kelly of the Clue Crew delivers the clue.) A word that contains the letters for a synonym within it, like OBSERVE, which includes the word SEE, is this beastly type of word
(Alex: It's called a [*] word. Has a pouch.)

JAMES BOND THEMES $400: "One life for yourself, & one for your dreams"

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Jared: $6,000
Parth: $2,800
Hillary: $1,400

Jared Hall maintains a stellar winnings total through his sixth win. In fact, he's well within range of eclipsing Joon Pahk's seven-day total with another win tomorrow, which would be an extraordinary accomplishment. A win of $18,000 or more would do it. He'll have to average nearly $30,000 a win for two more games to match or exceed Tom Nissley's eight-day total, though. Good luck on Friday, Jared! :-)

Wanting to see if the judges could help with this one. STORY, $200, "Whodunnit" was given, would "Mystery" suffice?

I don't think even the judges could help in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOS $2000. Did *anyone* know the answer to that? I wouldn't be surprised if even AP & Schliemann were stumped there ...

That 2K National Geographic clue was brutal. It was quite the difficulty jump in that category from the insultingly easy "Here's a picture (of a tornado), what is it?" first clue.

Well, they accept Alice In Wonderland and Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. If the expected response had been the Beatles' 1968 double album, I am sure they would have accepted "The White Album". When you say "Sgt. Pepper", especially in the context of a classic album, everybody knows to which you refer.

ETA: That's not to say I wasn't suprised it was accepted.

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

Wiki cites Sgt. Pepper as a commonly shortened version, but I'm surprised it was taken too.

It really would have been bad if Jared had only written down "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hea" when time ran out and got negged.

I figured it had to have been a Beatles album and was torn between Pepper and White. I wrote down the correct one first, figuring it would be much easier to change to the White album later in the 30 seconds, but stuck with it.

Why did Alex drag out the word "on"? Is it done that way in the song?

4 straight instagets for FJ.
Agree on that final NatGeo clue. Major WTF?? there.

I love anagrams. I love State Capitals. I always blow through those categories effortlessly.
Well, guess I left my anagramming state capital brain in my other pants, because I got NONE of those. On the last one I even paused the DVR so the contestant couldn't spoil me, but still no joy after way more time than even a DD timer would've allowed.

Picked up some nice LachTrash though: albatross ("wandering" TOM), Sonny Bono, Dean Martin, sever. Didn't know either of the DDs in DJ, but gotta love Parth's wager! In a category he loves, so take advantage.

In the interest of your general music education, you are REQUIRED to go listen to A Day in the Life. I'll wait right here while you do it. [starts tapping foot impatiently]

Of course, if Alex did it like it is in the song, I'd at least expect him to hit THE CHORD (an E major, BTW) and then keep babbling.

I missed albatross because of some reception problems, but I got the other three.

I'm tempted to ask Mark to put that in the poll, but I don't want to deprive myself it my fellow boardies of a potential 8/8. (Well, I can't get 8/8, but you know what I mean).

Mark can poll it in other ways besides a "did you get it?" question.

OMG, how could I forget? "Kangaroo word"! We just had a side thread here on those last week.
Of course here we talked about the "see" in "observe," the joey word. All the same species.

Judges: Muslim for the Islam clue (Female Nobel for $200)? I always get that mixed up.

They just won't let me have 5/5s even in categories I like. I've never seen a Mercedes Benz commercial, and NHO kangaroo word.

Lach Trash on Spoonerism and Gothic (total WAG on the latter).

Raleigh was my only miss in State Capital Anagrams, and Billy the Kid my only miss in New York.

Mom suggested Beatles when FJ! came up, so that got the wheels spinning, but not enough to get to Sgt. Pepper's.

Exciting game--Parth gave Jared a run for his money but couldn't connect the dots from the FJ clue to A Day in the Life to SPLHCB.

Got some Lach Trash today, though not quite as much as yesterday--Gothic, spoonerism, You Only Live Twice, Sonny Bono, Raleigh, divided. (Also got Trenton, but couldn't pull out Carson City nor Olympia. I don't think they got to the fifth one.)

Now I'm curious if I've seen Jared's mom in anything.
