CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Joel Stjernholm is from, uh, Minnesota. You started distance running. Uh, why?

Joel: Mainly because I love Eggs Benedict and huevos rancheros, and I wanted to eat guilt--brunch guilt-free. So, I took up distance running and actually just did my second marathon yesterday.

Alex: Good for you.

Joel: Thank you.

Alex: That's wonderful. What was your time?

Joel: Uh, 3:25:07.

Alex: That's pretty good.

Joel: And ate very well before and after.

Alex: [Laughs] All righty.




Alex: Aggie Lee is an attorney from Los Angeles. Now, it's always fun to travel and run into celebrities. You and your mom ran into somebody rather well-known, but somebody that your mom related to more than yourself.

Aggie: Yes. I don't know whether he would be an actual celebrity, but to her, it was. We were in a cab in Korea. And we were driving by a park. And she used to tell me that when she was in high school, she would go listen to this band play. It was a folk band. And the cab driver was like, "Well, what was the name of the band?" And she told him. He said, "I was the drummer in that band." So, it was a small world.

Alex: So, the cab driver was one of her heroes.

Aggie: Yes. Yes.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Mariusz Galczynski is a university lecturer who is now the man from Montreal, teaching multi-cultural education, which means what? I'm a little confused about that.

Mariusz: Well, it's all about recognizing the various differences of students and making classrooms inclusive spaces for all kinds of needs.

Alex: Now, do you deal with, uh, different religions, uh, different backgrounds? What do you focus on?

Mariusz: Everything. It encompasses a very broad definition from ethnic background to gender, sexuality, uh, physical and mental ability.

Alex: And the goal, of course, is to make--

Mariusz: Create a safe space where all students can achieve.

Alex: Okay. Good.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE

Aggie: $4,800
Mariusz: $3,000

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
20th CENTURY NOVELS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Crush for first place.
Joel: Wager $601 to cover Aggie, but no more than $5,799 so as not to fall behind Mariusz's doubled score.
Aggie: You have the hope of surpassing Joel if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $7,401 to force Joel to wager to win while also protecting your position from being usurped by Mariusz.
Mariusz: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
In 1940 House Representative from Oklahoma Lyle Boren denounced it as a "dirty, lying, filthy manuscript"

FINAL SCORES
Mariusz: $4,800 + $4,800 = $9,600 (What is The Grapes of Wrath?) (3rd place)
Aggie: $8,000 + $7,800 = $15,800 (What is the Grapes of Wrath?) (New champion: $15,800)
Joel: $15,400 - $601 = $14,799 (What is In Cold Blood?) (2nd place)

A VISIT TO TESLA $200: (Sarah of the Clue Crew reports from behind the wheel of a Tesla at Tesla Motors in Fremont, CA.)

A VISIT TO TESLA $400: (Jimmy of the Clue Crew reports from Tesla Motors in Fremont, CA.) The body of each car begins with a giant 20,000-lb. coil of this metal, atomic #13, which will be stretched, bent, punched, painted & more before it's done

A VISIT TO TESLA $600: (Jimmy of the Clue Crew reports from Tesla Motors in Fremont, CA.) As the body of a Tesla comes together, several joining methods are used, including adhesive, cold metal transfer, self-piercing rivets & the resistance type of this metallurgic technique

A VISIT TO TESLA $800: (Jimmy of the Clue Crew reports from Tesla Motors in Fremont, CA.) In 2013, 9 years ahead of schedule, Tesla Motors paid back $465 million in loans from this U.S. government department that's rightly interested in Tesla's advanced technology

COLORFUL GEOGRAPHY $1600: This colorful range is known for its beautiful scenery, especially along the Skyline Drive in Virginia

Another fun game, although it seemed pretty pop-culture heavy. Surprised that there were four clues left hidden, it didn't feel like play was that slow. Poor Joel will be cursing himself for taking five seconds instead of four on that daily double, holy cow. Fine margins indeed.

I gobble up geography categories like baby carrots but couldn't come up with Burgundy in time. I was thinking "white alps" or some such nonsense. I did get Orange river though.

Surprised they put the DD in three-letter words, those categories are usually pretty easy. Props to Aggie for getting it, she was quite assured all the way through, save for her Tarantino slip-up. Can she break the one-day champion streak? I wouldn't bet against it.

I couldn't come up with anything in FJ, i was trying to think of something with an anti-religious slant or something. If Joel wrote down In Cold Blood just to have something, fair enough but it did make me wince a little bit. 1940? A wee bit early for that one... Shame since he seemed like a total buzzer boss. And if he's not careful, that smile of his could melt the polar ice caps.

P.S. i always watch J! as soon as I get home from work and then I want to post here immediately after. Hope nobody minds the perky newcomer always piping up at the top of the thread.

Good game. Tight in the middle. I was cheering for the Swede, but he lost his near-runaway by not knowing FJ. How often does that happen? FJ was an instaget for me (as I imagine it was for most who read this board) but it sure seems like we've had a disproportionate number of literature FJs lately.

I didn't even need to hear the notes to know the film whose "5-note sequence" was popular.

LTaM sounds, you have a small-ish lead...and you're heading for the bottom of the board? Why? The DDs are gon...oh, OK, you stretched that lead out nicely! Maybe you had a strategy in mind after all; now all you have to do is get the 1600/2000 clue in Hi/Low and wrap this sucker u...wait, NOW you go for the 800 clue?!? See ya.

Instaget FJ.

This was an interesting game, with Aggie winning because Joel didn't get FJ. I got 35 clues correct including Buster Brown, Orange River, Jumbo the Elephant, and FJ.

This was another very enjoyable board. Television is one of my worst categories but the television category that came up in the J! round was an easy run. And I once again lost out on a 50 50 90 guess between Nome and Barrow; I can never keep those two straight.

FJ was an instant get. I wasn't completely confident from the clue, but the category name left little doubt.

Funny thing was I was watching a YouTube video about C.S. Lewis before watching this game. After a spell of slim pickings on Lach Trash, this game worked for me.

Lach Trash: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Buster Brown; Orange River; All-American; Nome; Jumbo

Instaget FJ. Too bad that the leader didn't risk more on the Help! DD, he just missed the lock. That FJ is the kind you have to get if you don't have the lock.

I keep forgetting that my sister's DVR fast forwards a lot faster than mine.

Lach Trash: Buster Brown.

Ran Americana ad TV Title Pair, got all but Salieri in Dinner/Broadway.

Got only H2G2 in Second Book. I thought $400 was very undervalued there.

Overall, a very good J! round with 19.

I got the Close Encounters of the Third Kind clue entirely from a previous FJ!

Can we poll Melissa and Doug? I'm curious as to how many knew that.

Where did all the time go in DJ?! LTAM with 10 clues left?!?

I got everything but geochronology in Ology, but had only 6 other gets in all of DJ!

"Blah blah blah Oklahoma". Gotta be Grapes of Wrath. Two easy literature categories in a row.

Not an instaget FJ but tweaked it out after recognizing has to be a 1940 novel about Oklahoma... Willa Cather... no, O! Pioneers doesn't really fit... Trail of Tears? Faulkner, Mitchell both from Georgia although Gone with the Wind was filmed in 1939, don't see how it was 'filthy';... hmmm Okies from Muskogee... Dust Bowl... THe JOADS! Doh lol thereyago. Went down to the J-shelf where I keep all the most commonly queried novels and on page XL of an XLIV page introduction in my 1992 Penguin Classics Edition, I found the exact quote about Lyle Boren reproduced verbatim, with other examples, and the conclusion that of all these detractors, "None of them had one iota of impact."

Overall 39 correct responses including FJ with one miss; I gave "Pulp Fiction" for "Reservoir Dogs" for a 1992 Quetin Tarantino production, bah. Probably a common mis-take. Sorry to see Mariusz go, he was really quite a good player and made a bold true DD on "Burgundy" in colorful geography for a French state formerly partly in Switzerland. Likewise, "Orange" river and state are both found in South Africa, as is Transvaal, meaning "across the Vaal" all good southern African names to know. The Red Sea comes up often in colorful category and is bordered by Eritrea and Arabia. Blue Ridge MTNs = instaget for Virginians and was sorry to see Mz missed it with 'Blue Mtns'; instaget Green Acres with Hungarian-born Eva Gabor (sister of Zsa-zsa!) and Eddie Albert, and also CEOTTK Tones.

4/5 in 'ology' category with hits on astrology / cardiology / pharmacology / Marine Biology but NHO "Geochronology" GTK! Clam on Nome, AK port but instaget Amalthea = 5th discovered moon of Jupiter, by Barnard (Galileo discovered the four principal moons in 1610). IMHO pretty tough get for anyone not into astronomy. Amalthea was the she-goat who suckled Zeus when Rhea (also a flightless bird of S. America) was hiding him from Chronos, until he was old enough to commit patricide. Amalthea gave the ultimate for her foster 'son' when he slew her for her coat, which became his Aegis, another fav. The minor moons always make great DDs and tend to be a weak spot for many players. I love these moons, gimme more cowbells! My other fav: Galatea, 6th moon of Uranus. From Pygmalion... Geo. Bernard Shaw, plagiarized freely from the Greeks. Pygmalion crafted Galatea, and so loved her that she became a real woman (shades of the Velveteen Rabbit!)

Clam on "I would Die 4 U" from Purple Rain, the Artist not formerly known as Prince anymore. Rollicking great fun singing out; "Look on the Bright siiiiii-de of Life!" (Life of Brian ROFL). Clam on Help! 1965, "Crying out for it" pretty good TOM I just fail the get. PT Barnum: Jumbo = Pavlov. Got Sherwin-Wms paint and this is twice now that Melissa and Doug Toys have been a TS! Yes TPH, we love these toys and the house is full of 'em. Easyget Prego tomato / pasta sauce.

Instaget Amadeus (1984 best picture) with Ian McKellen as Who's Salieri?! Easygets on spiny lobster, 'hub' (odd coincidence just talking about hubs with wife today, she asked; "what's that thingy in the middle of the bicycle wheel called? LOL' Also; Boston = 'Hub of the universe'; Hostess twinkies invented by Jim Dewar, conestoga wagon (another unfortunate mis-take for Mz, meh); Everglades, Hem & Haw, Tux = Penguin suit, mug = cup/face 'shot'; but clam on 'Yen' = 'craving (from opium addiction).

Loved the Tesla category, missed a run on DOE, my guess: DOT; but instaget 'electromagnetic induction (TS) as well as Al (#13), giant rolls pictured, resistance welding and rotor>acceleration.

I was strongest on literature by sequels category, getting 'Fellowship of the Ring' (DO NOT confuse with Lord of The RIngs, plural! There was just one fellowship, get it!?) for The Two Towers; Guns of Navarone / Force Ten Navarone; Divergent / Insurgent; Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy / The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe / Prince Caspian (TS); in movies took Sex & the City (E-Z!) The Bold and the Beautiful, Freaks & Geeks but clam Eastbound & Down. NHO Tige, Buster Brown's dog LOL; induction failure on Miss (Teen) USA, ROFL.

Pretty darn good game IMHO they played well and surprise ending with an upset! I feel that Mariusz knew more, but played with a language handicap, apparently he's an ESL speaker, but gosh kudos to the man for coming to play in spite of it! Someone posted Swedish, but his name is Polish, did I miss a tell? He translated a Polish opera, so I reckon he's a native Polish speaker. Hope this chick can clear the board tomorrow... pretty please, with sugar on top?! Uncover all the clues for us already! good game in spite of that, congrats!

First time in a while I've gotten FJ two days in a row, getting Grapes of Wrath.

Lach Trash: Lion, Witch and The Wardrobe. All-American (Would judges have accepted if I just said All-American, instead of "All-American Team"?)

I also got Blue Ridge Mountains, but only after Mariusz said the Blue Mountains.

Could we please have a multi-day champion? Has there even been a 5-day champ since Julia?

The Tesla increase in velocity is instantaneous? Which means acceleration is infinite? :D I need to get out the physics books.

Sure. It will be interesting to see if econgator got it this time. From the 2/23/12 thread a post by econgator:

Trying to remember what the other responses were for that one, but I, too, got Angry Birds and I know I had never heard of Melissa & Doug.

I had a strange sandwich in COLORFUL GEOGRAPHY getting the two above and two below the DD. With the mix of players today I could not yell when they did not get Jumbo or Buster Brown. The first C.S. Lewis book or Orange River were more the type I would think someone would get on any J! program.

I'm not crazy enough to name the act although it is guessable for anyone who has paid enough attention to my posts. Less than 30 minutes before watching the show I listened to a version of "Help!"

Joel lost the game multiple times tonight. $2000 only on the MUSIC & MOVIES Daily Double, not getting to more clues and not solving a gift FJ! clue for any leader. I'm sure Aggie would have figured it out anyway, but assist to Alex for spelling out that Joel did not have a runaway and that Aggie could catch him.

Even worse for Joel with all of the above negatives was his FJ! miss was on a clue everyone in his circle would know as well. He played well while missing the chance to close out the victory.

My thoughts were that the extra time was actually taken up during the J! round because of the Tesla category, but that was the last category in the round and they were probably contractually obligated to reveal all its clues, leaving less time for DJ!
