CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Quite often, I hear comments from viewers and people here in our studio audience who say we have a lovely set for Jeopardy! but it's not quite as good for Jonathan Kuehnle because you are color-blind?
Jonathan: Yes, I am totally colour-blind. I see nothing but black, white, shades of gray. That's about it.
Alex: You know, I love some of the black-and-white movies from the '40s and '50s, but you have no need for a color television set, then.
Jonathan: Didn't own one until I was 23, And The Wizard of Oz meant nothing to me.
[ laughter ]
Alex: Shh. You're not supposed to say that. That was filmed here.




Alex: Michelle Leppert is from Danvers, Massachusetts, and she admits to having had the worst summer job ever. What were you doing?
Michelle: I spent a summer selling books door-to-door. Straight commission. 3,000 miles from home. We worked 70 to 80 hours a week, and I met the people I came out to Fresno with the week before we came out.
Alex: What kind of books were you selling that made it so bad?
Michelle: Educational books, but the whole idea of door-to-door salespeople, even when I was doing it, people are not really fond of strangers knocking on the door, trying to sell them things.
Alex: Will they slam the door in your face?
Michelle: Slam the door in your face. They'll call you names. They'll sic the dog on you.
Alex: Oh, gosh.
Michelle: Yeah, it was --It seemed like a good idea at the time, though.
Alex: Yeah. A lot of things seemed like a good idea at the time.




Alex: Amy Nienaber is our champion. Tell me about your cat. Your cat's very talented, isn't it?
Amy: Yes. If you point a finger gun at her, she will fall over dead, and then you can tell her to roll over, and she'll roll over.
Alex: How long did it take you to teach her that trick?
Amy: Probably... maybe a couple months.
Alex: A couple months. Well, keep working with her.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
AUTHORS' PLOTS $600: After his death in Samoa, this Scotsman's body was taken to a plot atop Mount Vaea

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Amy: $12,800
Michelle: $12,400
Jonathan: $12,200

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
FOOD & DRINK

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Amy: Wager $12,001 to cover Michelle.
Michelle: You ought to wager to cover Jonathan, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you ought to choose between wagering $0 or maximizing your winnings with a bet of all $12,400. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $12,000 (to shut out Jonathan) or less than $11,600 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Jonathan). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Amy.
Jonathan: You ought to try wagering between $201 and $11,400. This will top a $0 wager by Michelle while still beating Amy and Michelle on the Triple Stumper (should Amy wager to cover Michelle's doubled score and Michelle wager to cover your doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
The corporate website for this product says it leaves its container at .028 miles per hour

So that's what a "stent" is.

NHO Leo Strummer, and The Clash doesn't sound especially familiar either. Also couldn't pull "Les Paul" in time. Still, 3/5 in Guitars isn't bad for a keyboard player.

Ice Cream for $200 confused me since I thought "scoop" only meant "story" in a general sense, so "one paper before others get it" confused the heck out of me.

That "cones" clue was a cruel coincidence with a colorblind contestant on.

I've heard of up, down, strange, charm, top, bottom, if you don't know what a quark is, you still got 'em, but never knew they were called flavors.

Also NHO Manila Bay.

====

Ran Wild and "Com", but my only other gets were $400 in Blue Danube and Theron.

Could "Quotable Quotes" have had any LESS of a TOM on any of those clues? I saw no way to figure out a single one of those.

Leaves its container slowly.…♪Anticipation♪… Gotta be Heinz Ketchup!

Fender a TS? Really?

Also, I said "drizzle" for the "sprinkles" clue. Iffy, granted, but maybe?

The new champ played a pretty solid game, was pleased when she bet the max on the early DD. The guy cost himself 25k by not taking advantage of the DD.

I was looking forward to settling back into regular play...and then Fender was a TS. Yikes. Thankfully, they recovered nicely and made it an interesting game.

FJ took about 25 seconds, some of which was wasted doing math in my head :oops: , then once I pictured someing oozing out of its container at a glacial pace, the right answer came to me instantly.

I'm not worried about the ice cream part of it, but I don't remember the exact wording used to describe the rain.

Wow, this was an awesome game. A nailbiter to the very end, and I think the best (wo)man won. I have a feeling Michelle will be a tough one to take down. This is gonna be a great week.

This was also my first ever game I did a live Coryat for, and I got $12600, which is a lot better than I thought I'd do. Hit both Doubles in DJ. I have a long way to go from the Tournament of Champions, but I'm proud of my performance with barely any precursory knowledge.

I had drizzle too, but looking back on it, it would likely be negged. Drizzle is usually independent of other rain.

I appreciate any Tolkien reference, but this is really how the clue should have read:

A grave marker for J.R.R. Tolkien and his wife Edith bear the name of these two Middle-earth characters.

That's a TOC level clue (or an LL-level clue, even).
