CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: FeiFei Jiang is originally from Kansas, but she interned at the international atomic energy commission In Vienna?

FeiFei: Yes. That's correct.

Alex: Doing what?

FeiFei: Uh, so I was an intern
in the media and press office,
Uh, during my, uh, the summer during, uh, my junior year. Between my junior and senior years of college. And, um, I was there. While I was there, um,
We, uh, let a documentary film team through a tour of, uh, one of the local nuclear facilities. Um, and, uh, I got to see a lot of cool things.

Alex: Okay. Good for you. I bet --I bet it was exciting.




Alex: Matt Weldy is a logistics coordinator from Texas who cuts his hair
twice a year.

Matt: Once a year most of the time, Alex.

Alex: Oh, really? And --but you don't do it.

Matt: No. We let kids at church camp do it.

Alex: And do they pay
for the privilege? Well, they give an offering.

Alex: Yeah? Do they make a mess of your hair? 'Cause it looks pretty good now. You got a lot of curls in there.

Matt: Well, we --we let 'em cut it just as much as it can go, and it goes really short.

Alex: Yeah? Okay. That sounds like fun, too. Not as much fun as being at the, uh, international nuclear agency in Vienna.
[ chuckles ]




Alex: Julia Collins is our champion. Played ice hockey once, right?

Julia: I did. When I was in grad school, I was recruited to be on a team with my classmates.

Alex: What position?

Julia: Uh, I was a defender.

Alex: Okay.

Julia: Left or right. Didn't matter. Uh, but we were in
the "D" league, so there was an "A," "B," and "C" league.
So we were --we were
not too professional.

Alex: How did your team do?

Julia: We never won a game.
There were several we didn't score any goals.

Alex: Did they have an "E" or "F" league?

Julia: No. We were the bottom of barrel. [ laughter ]

Alex: Okay. Something
to look forward to.

Julia: It was fun, though.

Julia appeared to be on the ropes early but managed to cruise to a lock win. Too many late negs from Matt cost him a win as he had the sole solve on FJ.

I wonder if her misspeak on the first round all in DD made her gun shy in the second round when she bet small? A category where all you have to do is say who was that party's candidate in year X? That is a time when I'm going all in without thinking and take money out of my wallet and throw it on the podium/lectern and ask audience members to throw in their money.

Yesterday on FJ I had no clue but wrote down something and got it right. Today I had no idea and wrote something down and got it wrong. I guessed date.

Congrats to Julia!!!!!!

$21401 and a win tomorrow means guarantees she'll be second all-time in regular game cash winnings, and the second person to win her 20th game.

I haven't been on one side or the other on the champion, but today is a good example of the challengers really struggling. So many triple stumpers that even I thought were way too easy. Kudos to her though for finding all the daily doubles and avoiding losing on a relatively easy FJ. Maybe the categories were just in my wheelhouse today.

The challengers looked scared from the first clue, and it didn't get better from there.

Julia had me worried for a bit in J!

I took the neg on Women for $200 since I knew Bonnie but couldn't pull up "Parker" for the life of me. Only other one I knew was Amy Fisher but I couldn't pull it in time.

Yes, I ran Country Drinking Songs.

"Address" was a stupid miss IMO. I just couldn't think of any mailing word with "ss" in it.

Dewey was too easy at $2000. That whole category was easy after the fact, but I could only get Kerry in time.

Shoshone was my only miss in World Cultures.

Bromelain is in meat tenderizer, which I know comes from pineapple because I saw "from pineapple" once on a packet of fajita seasoning/meat tenderizer. Instaget.

Day of the Dead is actually three days (10/31, 11/1, and 11/2) so no.

Right? Can't remember Babe Ruth, but remembers seeing bromelain once on a packet of meat tenderizer and it sticks with him. ;)

Congrats to Julia on her 19th win!

Julia was behind by quite a bit at first. I think Matt had less money at the end of DJ! than at the first commercial break.

Picked up Lach trash: "Puerto Rico", "address", "Dorothy Parker", "-algia", "World War I"

Didn't get FJ. I guessed "banana" instead.

We've gone over this before. The more fun something is to say, the more likely I am to recall it. :D
