CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Donna Innes is from Kalamazoo, Michigan and like most Jeopardy! players has traveled extensively. Tell me about bus rides in Greece.

[Chuckles]

Donna: It was quite an experience. You really haven't lived until you've been on a bus with the bouzouki music blaring and the drunken sailors returning to their port town with many stops for little fights along the way.

Alex: Did you develop a liking for ouzo?

Donna: [Laughs] One had to.

[Laughter]

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Dilip Rajagopalan from newtown square, Pennsylvania. You are a tennis player.

Dilip: That's right.

Alex: I have a friend of mine who is a tennis player also. He's in his 90s now and he was really disappointed because you have competitions that are age-based, am I right?

Dilip: That's correct. The USTA has age--all different age competitions.

Alex: Yeah, he was disappointed because he won by default. There was nobody else his age to compete with.

Dilip: Yeah, and I --

Alex: How far do you get in these competitions?

Dilip: I--I do all right in those competitions, but I'm--I'm getting to the age where I think soon I might be the only person competing as well.

Alex: [Chuckles] But it's fun. You get the trophy anyway.

Dilip: That's right.




Alex: Julia Collins is our champion. Now, in high school, in your junior yearbook, there was a connection with Jeopardy!, am I right? A prophecy?

Julia: So in my--actually, my junior high school yearbook, yeah. When I was in eighth grade, the prophecy was that I would be a Jeopardy! champion. So...

Alex: But did you apply for our Teen Tournament or our college tournament around that time? Or did you wait until now?

Julia: I waited until now. I don't think there was a Teen Tournament when I was in high school.

[Chuckles]

Julia: So, uh...makes me feel a little old but...

Alex: Shh, shh, shh. Don't--don't say any more. Don't--don't tell.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Dilip found the Daily Double on the 20th clue. Julia had $6,600, Dilip had $800, and Donna was at $1,400. Dilip wagered $500.

I'VE GOT TIME $1000: There are 60 billion of these in a minute
(Dilip: What are quarks?)

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
ON MY HANDS $800: A Japanese variety of this sport called kyudo uses a glove called a yugake with which to draw the string

I'VE GOT TIME $400: Astronomers use sidereal time, based on the Earth's rotation in relation to these

ROBOTICS $1000: This 5-letter prefix comes before "mechanism" to refer to the feedback device that lets robots self-correct
(Alex: Less than a minute.)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Julia: $7,600
Donna: $4,600
Dilip: $1,100

(Alex: Yes, we need both words and you gave them both.)

SOUTH AFRICAN WILDLIFE $400: (Sarah of the Clue Crew sits in an open vehicle in the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa.) Though they rest 20 hours a day, the lion is the top of the African food chain; in Swahili, the word for lion is this

SOUTH AFRICAN WILDLIFE $800: (Kelly of the Clue Crew shows us the landscape and wildlife at the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa.) The wildebeest grazing maintains the grassland & helps keep woods from growing, making the animal a keystone species in this environment around us

Fun FJ! clue and response today. :D

Knowing J!, I wouldn't be surprised if they timed it to honor the centennial this week (tomorrow). Or maybe it was just a happy coincidence.

Three bad guesses: talcum for chalk, tide for star, and error for servo.

Oddly, I got all of the $600s.

Too slow on "Clockwork Orange" to run the book category.

Red Hot Chili Peppers was oddly the only Top 40 debut I outright didn't know. NHO that song. Clammed on Adele, but got the three in between.

What led to "stars" on Time for $400? Nanoseconds was on the tip of my tongue, but I couldn't get there.

Just screwed up royally on $200. "Okay, what's a piece of wood? A plank? That doesn't have D. What's a male pig called? Sow? No, that's not right either. WHAT DO THEY WANT?!" Also went "What is mallard and… mallar? That's not a word" at $400. Got going on the next two, but tripped up again since I don't recognize the word "dearth".

====

That wildlife category was completely beyond my comprehension, which is ultra rare for an animal category.

Presidential Monograms flustered me since I can NEVER EVER get the presidents before Reagan in proper order no matter how hard I try. "WJC? Cleveland?!?… Oh, duh." Nice trap writers. "What president had an H surname? Harrison? No, that doesn't fit. What am I missing?"

Ran Crossword Clues, surprisingly.

"Stole a cork from his lunch"? Bwuh? Don't get it.

The heck does "vine" have to do with any baseball team? Ivy covered?!? :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

As Alex said, the outfield wall at Wrigley Field is famously covered in ivy. Super-instaget.

Another less-than-stellar game. I almost forgot Dilip was there. It was probably just nerves.

Natural selection for 2000!??!

There were 11 non-DD clues that were not answered correctly by anyone.

Picked up Lach trash: "archery", "stars", "servo", "GWB", "salivary", "Bryn Mawr", "cork"

Instaget FJ, very easy for me.

Pre-called On the Whole, I'd Rather be in Philadelphia in the WC Fields category. DOn't know if that would have come up in the three unrevealed clues or not.

Tonight's game didn't seem that bad to me, but neither did last night's. I guess that the stats say otherwise.

When I saw the FJ category I was pretty sure that I would be getting my 9th straight FJ clue, and this one was an instant get. Tomorrow, we'll see if I can tie my personal best streak of correct FJ responses.

A bit of a dream game for me. I want that board if I ever get on the show.

Monograms was good til 2000, pretty big spike there. Fair enough as their middle initials are well known.

Fun game to watch, and I enjoyed most of the categories... though I had to really think hard on the last presidential monograms. Rutherford B. Hayes? Um, o-kay. No surprise, did well on the novel category.

FJ was an Instaget. Though I'm a Red Sox fan, I've always had a soft spot for the Chicago Cubs. I always root for them... and hope that *this* year will be one to break that century-plus curse.

So you don't ring in until the 18th clue of the game and then luck out and hit the DD on the first clue you get to request. With only $800 in front of you, what better amount to bet than $500. I didn't think he'd be around for long after that, especially when he flubbed Nixon's initials just seconds after he heard them.

On the presidents DD, I'm betting it all, regardless of my position. I pull money out of my wallet and throw it on the podium. I invite audience members to throw their money into the pot as well.

If it had been Cleveland, think they'd have taken just GC?

Had I been in Julia's spot, even with a lock, I'd have been tempted to go Cliff Clavin on my bet and write down 18,400 big ones. I suspect others on here would have had the same urge.

My first thought once I saw the FJ answer was to think of some connection to wine and I think this may have been Dilip's line of thought. But then I remembered this...

Image

The anniversary of the opening this week is interesting in relation to the FJ. Philip Wrigley was also in a clue yesterday himself.

Two bleah games in a row to start the week. The lady challenger seemed nice, but never really got it going. It is good Dilip didn't ring in very much, as he took forever to request the next clue.

On FJ, I pre-called Hanseatic League.

Tomorrow will be the 100th anniversary of the first game at Wrigley Field.

Because seven is just such a huge number that suggests "ZOMG, super easy $400 stuff, will almost never be a TS."

I had an easier time with Hanseatic League than this FJ. With more time I probably would have gotten it, but it wasn't coming to me in 30 seconds. I was trying to come up with a link to a team name and the best I could do was vine > hops > Milwaukee Brewers.

I also lived in Chicago for several years :oops: but as a lifelong Yankees fan, paid little attention to the Cubs.

Ugly missed FJ, especially when you're not fan of mentioned team, & never heard of publication either (when I was visiting there in 1993, one of their fans tried to convert me over to their side!) :shock:

BTW, Leander, count me in the Brewers camp also.

People talk about their dream categories. Well, that presidential successor monograms was about as close as you could get for me. True Daily Double on the 2K if there ever was one.
