Alex: Thank you, Johnny Gilbert. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Good news, bad news. The good news is that our champions for the past week and a half on Jeopardy! have been winning a lot of money. The bad news is we've had only one-day champions. Joe is a one-day champ. He'd like to change that today. In order to do that, he'll have to defeat Nancy and Derek. Let's see how that works out. Here we go. The first round of play is the Jeopardy! Round. And these are the categories...

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: I'm torn between two bits of information regarding Derek Arnold. It says here that you get up at what time every day to play basketball?

Derek: 5:00 A.M.

Alex: 5:00 A.M.

Derek: That's right, Alex.

Alex: And you've been doing this for how long?

Derek: Um, about two or three years.

Alex: Okay. Now, the other bit of information, which is intriguing--you had two dates with the same woman on the same day.

Derek: That's right. We went out the first time, had a good time, and some friends and I were going to go out. And we were going out in her neighborhood, so I called her to see if she was still up and asked her to go out again.

Alex: Are you still with this woman?

Derek: Absolutely.

Alex: Good for you. All right.




Alex: Nancy Akerman from Arlington, Virginia--a romantic story here about your husband's proposal of marriage to you. Where did it take place?

Nancy: In a gondola in Venice. So, yeah, he gave me his camera--it was nighttime--and he said, "I want to, you know, have a picture." And I was thinking, "This is not gonna come out. It's dark." But I went to open the camera case, and the ring box fell out.

Alex: Aha.

Nancy: And I looked up, and he asked me to marry him, so...

Alex: And the gondolier?

Nancy: Just continued on with his tour as if nothing had happened. [Laughs]

Alex: They've been there, done that.

Nancy: Yeah.




Alex: Okay. Joe Morse is our champion--performs helicopter maintenance. For civilian helicopters, military helicopters, what are we talking about?

Joe: Military helicopters. The HH-65 Dolphin helicopter for the U.S. Coast Guard out of Mobile, Alabama.

Alex: Yeah, okay. Good work.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Nancy found the Daily Double on the 20th clue. Joe had $4,000, Nancy had $1,600, and Derek was at $3,200. Nancy made it a True Daily Double, wagering $1,600.

MAPS $600: Able to change naturally over time, an ambulatory boundary on a map is formed by one of these

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
FOREST KNOWLEDGE $1000: Forest directed this movie where Sandra Bullock finds love with Harry Connick Jr.

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Nancy: $6,400
Joe: $5,800
Derek: $5,400

Oddly, Ridgemont High and Hope Floats were the only two of those movies I've heard of. Also NHO Forest Whitaker, so I went 0/5.

I could've stared at "GORP" for a month and never come up with "raisins and peanuts". Also couldn't get "sleeping bag" because the clue didn't make any sense. What would cover your head and shoulders when you camp?!?

I thought Insect for $600 was HUGE negbait since "social insect" + "Sting" always leads to bee. Ants can sting?!? Saw no way to get wasp or cockroach.

What do "classics" have to do with Coleman?

Thought I'd run Maps, but I couldn't decipher what $600 was asking and WAGged "dashed line". Also, Mapquest wasn't the slightest bit obvious to me. I have never used Mapquest in my life — I used to use Yahoo! Maps, then went straight to Google Maps.

Clammed on "restless" since I thought they wanted "tense" as in "verb". Also NHO "on tenderhooks".

====

DJ! was mostly pretty easy. I had 19/30.

Oddly, I went 4/5 in three categories in DJ!, missing $1600 each time: Chucks, City Seal, and ZZ. NHO "buzz bomb" or Chuck Liddell.

The heck do bears have to do with Switzerland?

Faith/hope/charity was a good time to be second on the buzzer. I picked it up after the neg on "love".

Gabby Giffords was a bit steep at $400 IMO. Also saw no way to get Haiti/Hispaniola at $800 (anyone wanna explain this?), but got the next three in Nonfiction with ease.

====

Argh. I even thought of Three Stooges briefly, but not long enough to zero in on any of the three.

That's what they're called: Coleman Classic.

I had Hardy, too. I never knew Armstrong was called "Curly" (the only ones I knew of were Autie & Boy General).

I remembered watching the Three Stooges on TV as a very little kid, and therefore never thought of them as a 1930's group. My Pavlov reaction to the FJ clue was the Marx Brothers as the 30's comedy group, but that got me nowhere with a possible answer. Probably would have put down Chico.

Didn't get FJ.

That "Faith, Hope, and [heart]" clue was super negbaity. I wouldn't have rung in originally, because I was torn between love and charity, but would have gotten it on the rebound.

When Chuck Norris came up in the Chuck category, my first thought was, "Hey, two famous fighters with the name Chuck." I didn't expect Lidell to come up, too.

For FJ, I had no idea of the nickname of Custer or Crazy Horse, but went to the three stooges for the comedy group, and figured Curly was more likely of a nickname than Moe or Larry. I wonder if this was a situation of the writers having a clue in their head, then trying to find other examples to flesh it out. Though Crazy Horse is nicknamed Curly, with a quick Google search, I couldn't find any references to Custer as "Curly," even when searching -scout -crow.

Fixed. Mistakes like that show that just like with reading and speaking, you type words, not letters.

I also came up with "dashes."

For FJ! I went with "Dizzy," forgetting that Dizzy Gillespie was not a comedian but a musician.

Had Curly initially, but switched to Groucho at the last second. Who knows? Maybe Custer was grouchy...

Well played game today. This was a tough board for me, though I did get "bear" and "Scientology". All I could come up with for Final were Marx Brothers, I didn't think of the Three Stooges.

Had a 50/50 shot on that last clue about megachurches by either picking Joel Osteen or Rick Warren -- unfortunately made wrong choice. :oops:

Osteen's church in Houston is housed in the building formerly known as The Summit, ex-home of the Houston Rockets.

Otherwise, it was a great game from the fourth podium!

Several problems with tonight's game's clues.

1. Haiti is not an island.
2. 1:2,500 does not mean 1 inch equals 2500 miles.
3. A heart is always used to mean 'love', and "Faith, Hope and Love" is a very common expression (found in a very popular passage in the bible), so HUGE negbait.

I think there were others too.
