CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Whitney Thompson is from the University of Oklahoma, and this young lady has written a book on something unusual. What was it?

Whitney: Basset hound genetics.

Alex: Of course. Everybody wants to know about that.

Whitney: Oh, yeah.

Alex: Was this for adults or children?

Whitney: Children. Um, I took AP Biology my senior year in high school, and one of things our teacher had us do after the test was write children's books on any biological concept. Now, I have a basset hound who is almost all brown, and apparently that's a really rare phenotype for basset hounds. So, I wrote a book about how she got that way and read it to second graders.

Alex: And the kids were probably fascinated.

Whitney: Oh, yeah. My dog's really cute. Why wouldn't they be?

Alex: Okay, good.




Alex: Sarah Stevens is a major in history, University of Delaware. And this young lady is very superstitious, ladies and gentlemen. She does not believe it's important to wear shoes for special events.

Sarah: It's true. Uh...

Alex: Are you wearing shoes today?

Sarah: I am not.

Alex: You're not?

Sarah: I'm not, at all.

Alex: So, when you graduate and you're gonna have a gown and a cap and you're gonna go up on stage to get your diploma, are you going to be wearing shoes on that day?

Sarah: Absolutely not.

Alex: How did this come about?

Sarah: Uh, it's kind of a funny story. Uh, I'm a singer. And when I was in the seventh grade, I was auditioning for Delaware All-State Choir. And my shoes were just the slightest bit too tight, and I thought that it would be better to be more comfortable barefoot than I would be in too-tight shoes. Took them off and barely squeaked in to All-State by like two or three points and have been superstitious ever since.

Alex: Well, good for you. You know, of course, that you're in the minority because young girls nowadays graduating high school or college all prefer the six-inch spikes.

Sarah: Yeah.

Alex: Am I right?

Sarah: Yep.

Alex: Yeah. Okay.




Alex: James Fulwiler from Baltimore, Maryland, is a junior at temple and a lifeguard during the summer months. And you did a good deed this past summer.

James: I did. I did. Um, one of the campers jumped in off the diving board while I was at the deep end and swallowed some water, so he was thrashing around. We pulled him out and, uh, as I was leaving, a couple of his friends stopped me at the gate and told me they thought I was a hero. And I looked at them and I don't know what came over me, but I said, "I'm not a hero, I'm a lifeguard," and walked away.

Alex: Good for you.

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Whitney: $10,000
James: $9,200
Sarah: $6,200

PREFINAL REMARKS
Alex: Before we move on, a brief change in score to announce, and it goes back to "there's always next term" and a response given by James a little while ago. He did not--our judges have determined--they have reviewed the tape--he did not get his response of "What is class?" in time before time ran out. So he has $9,200. The scores are correct. Islands is the category, players, and here is your Final Jeopardy! clue...

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
ISLANDS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place.
Whitney: Wager $8,401 to cover James.
James: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Sarah, hoping that you give the correct response and Whitney doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $3,201 to cover Sarah's doubled score, but no more than $7,600 if you want to top Whitney on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,999 and win if both Whitney and Sarah miss Final.
Sarah: If you think James is going to wager to cover you, try wagering less than $200 to beat Whitney and James on the Triple Stumper; or, if you think James is going to wager small in hopes of a Triple Stumper, wager between $3,001 (venusian, to top a $0 wager by James) and $6,200 (martian, which may win in some cases but may also risk dropping you from second to third place if you get Final wrong).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
In a satellite photo, volcanic activity can be seen on this 10,000-square-mile island

FINAL SCORES
Sarah: $6,200 - $4,800 = $1,400 (What is Crete Sicily?) (2nd place)
James: $9,200 - $9,200 = $0 (What is Fiji?) (3rd place)
Whitney: $10,000 - $0 = $10,000 (What is Crete?) (Automatic semifinalist)
(Alex: [To Sarah] You took--you had written down [*] and crossed it out and put down Crete instead.)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $13,600

Wow, I thought FJ! would be a triple get, not a triple stumper! Very surprising misses by the contestants throughout the board.

Now, I'm not usually like this but...why was that clue a triple stumper?

I truly get the studio's different than playing along at home, but I don't get how all three missed that. Genuinely I wonder if it was harder to see in studio or something. However, I can only think of one island that looks like it's coming off of a tip in that way. I just am actually really wondering, because that was the last clue I expected to be a triple stumper. I also wonder what made the Delaware woman (I can't remember her name) change her mind.

Whitney's uptalk during the interview? Was really annoying? She sounded like? She kept? Asking? Questions?

Three NHOIs in Bands: Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers (I've at least heard of Ziggy himself), Fitz and the Tantrums, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. I'm surprised the last one wasn't a TS, since they've had absolutely zero hits in the US, and their only hit anywhere was in 2010.

Ran "Aca".

I also negged with amoeba instead of protozoa to stay at 4/5 in Animals.

Got hesitant on College for $600 and wondered whether it might be trapeze artists, lion tamers, or any of the thousands of others of performers at a circus. The clue didn't seem remotely pinned to clowns for me. At least I didn't know cardinal college either, so I didn't end up with four 4/5s in the round.

Anyone wanna explain Cal Tech for $1000, my only miss there? "Optiforce" doesn't sound remotely like a golf club to me, and "high tech" to me suggests something electronic, which would rule out about 99% of sports equipment. How do you get golf club out of that?! (And how was that clue not a TS when "drive" was?)

====

0/5 in Pop Culture. About 99.9% sure that I've NHO Kris Jenner, Melissa McCarthy, Nerdist, or MGMT.

"Rebus" was by far the easiest in Ancient History. Hammurabi was a really rough start IMO.

Me on Famous Homes DD: "Well, it's not John Quincy Adams, who else could it be?" Derp.

My 4/5 in Classical Music (everything but Sabre Dance) accounted for 4 out of my only 6 gets in DJ!

I had three of the D's (all but "dowry" and "Dungarees") but clammed on them, thus giving me an increasingly-common skunk in a word category. Clammed on "Class" and "Tau" as well.

I'm actually kind of ashamed it was a TS. I wrote down "What is Sicily? (And the extra point is good!)" of course, referring to the shape. Interesting wager by the semi-finalist though, as she would've been passed on a get by the gentleman from Temple and relegated to WC status.

Callaway = golf clubs. You know it or you don't.

You've likely heard of Kris Jenner. Before she was married to Bruce Jenner, she was married to Robert Kardashian. You should be able to figure out the rest.

I got the final, but not by the shape. I keyed in on, "small island with a well-known name and a famous volcano," and that led me quickly to Sicily.

Wasn't Callaway in the clue? It's the leading golf equipment manufacturer.

I'm another shocked at the FJ triple stumper. Sounded like Alex thought it would be very easy.

Picked up lots of Lach trash: "The Color Purple", "Bill de Blasio", "drive", "Maurice Ravel", "Sabre Dance", "period"

I got FJ. Like some others have mentioned, I was very surprised that it was a triple stumper. It's too bad that Sarah crossed out "Sicily" and wrote "Crete" instead.

I don't remember the exact wording on that clue, but would "The Mayor of New York [City]" have been acceptable?

This game was good for my ego. Last week, I scored below my usual average for five straight games. Today, I scored above my usual average.

Not surprisingly for a college tournament, my worst category in each of the rounds was the most pop-culturey one ("Backing Bands" in the J round and "Pop Culture" in the DJ round).

I needed the rebound on "golf clubs" and "majority whip". (Seniority of various political positions is something I should memorize, but I grew up in Canada so the US ones aren't burned as firmly in my brain as they could be.)

Regarding FJ, I don't normally like to say things like "How can they not know that?" But, this time, you can add me to the chorus of people shouting "How can they not know that?"

To be fair, everyone has their weak spots, and different people are different. Maybe for some people who aren't visual learners, they think of place names more abstractly, like they're just part of a list or something? I'm somebody who has always loved poring over maps and atlases, and for me, the physical shape of a geographic entity is a huge part of its "personality".

Maybe it was harder in the studio? Subtleties of distance, light, angle, etc.?

I work at the University of Delaware, so it would have been nice to see Sarah get a higher score. (I suppose the contestant on the left was also somewhat local to me -- if he's from Baltimore and attends Temple, he's probably been through Delaware lots of times.)

Sorry to pile it on, but FJ was a triple-stumper... for *college* students who are supposedly bright and able enough to pass the auditions to get there?

Man, I'm gonna sound like an old grouch ("You kids get off my lawn!") but I weep for this generation if its representative of what they know...
