CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Elliot Yates is an opera producer from New York. Elliot, I want you to tell me about the roommate that almost got you into trouble.

Elliot: Well, my second roommate is the top half of a mannequin named Kipper, and when we were moving to New York, my human roommate, Sarah, and I--she rode in the front seat with us, of course--and somehow, our truck got on the Grand Central Parkway--trucks are not allowed on that--and the bridges kept having a lower and lower clearance. We got to one that was 10'5", and our truck was 10'6", so I pulled to the middle of the road, didn't stop, went underneath it, didn't scrape, but we did scream the whole time, and immediately got pulled over by a cop. And he was like, "You're--you're gonna kill somebody," and we're like, "We probably are." And he was very nice. He was gonna come to our--our truck and give us directions, and I jogged ahead of him and said, "Sarah, put Kipper away." I didn't want him to think we were any weirder than we are. 'Cause we're very weird. And he walked up as my roommate is shoving this humanlike figure down into the floorboard. He pulls his flashlight out and may have twitched for his gun, and I said, "It's just Kipper." [Shrugs]

[Laughter]

Alex: We get all kinds on our show, folks.




Alex: Mike Blaha is an attorney who has produced how many plays?

Mike: Uh, over 50, Alex. Probably at least half of those have been at the Edinburgh French Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. And now I'm one of the founding producers of Sci-Fest L.A., which is a, uh, festival of science-fiction one-act plays here in Los Angeles.

Alex: Oh, that's getting to be really popular.

Mike: Yes, we did very well last year, so we're doing it again this year.

Alex: Good luck to you there.

Mike: Thank you.




Alex: Now, our champion is Vaughn Winchell. He's married. We've established that. And after you've been married for a while, you and your wife get to be on the same page with a lot of things. Tell us about Valentine's Day.

Vaughn: We'd been married 15 years or more when one February, my wife and I exchanged cards and found that we had bought each other the same Valentine.

Alex: That's it, folks.

Vaughn: Yes. We figured that meant we had won the game and now we don't have to buy each other cards anymore.

Alex: Ever--ever again.

I'm guessing this Final was gettable if you knew who the person was who played Brice. Me, I had a Hammer-esque "well, it could be anything!" moment and (un-Hammer-like) WAGged "breast augmentation".

+1 for breast augmentation.

Well done Vaughn, five solid wins and a valiant showing today. See you at the ToC.

Two games in a row with a BC clue - wicked. Love that place, have some good friends in Victoria.

Congratulations on your great run, Vaughn.

Elliot Yates was on WWTBAM in March last year and won $58,500 http://wwtbambored.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=47200, and was on Wheel of Fortune in 2011 and won $48,360. Poor Mike didn't have a chance between these experienced guys.

I'm a little curious as to what the rules are about time between game shows now for Jeopardy. When I tried out in 2010 Maggie told me they wouldn't even call me until it had been a full year after my episode aired on WWTBAM.

Lach Trash: Taylor Swift, North Carolina, Only Girl

I recognized the name Fanny Brice but I couldn't remember where I recognized it from, so I WAGed sex change. I felt pretty stupid when the right answer came up.

Congrats on your run, Vaughn! See you in the ToC.

Congrats to DC Metro resident Vaughn on his run.

Lach Trash: Woodrow Wilson, Taylor Swift

Instaget FJ. I'm sure that rhinoplasty would be accepted as well, because that is the medical term. Took me back to the previous Streisand related FJ that aired in October.

Suggestion for the Weekly poll: "I said 'toothbrush' for that Oral-B clue."

Judges question: Would "drought" have been accepted for the "opposite of a surplus" clue? I thought deficit was a better response after it was given, but looking at definitions for drought and surplus in the dictionary, I'm having a hard time finding any reason why drought would be wrong...

No idea on that final. I kind of misinterpreted the part about rejection and went with heart transplant.

And congrats on a good run Vaughn. :)

Just for what it's worth, we don't put holy water in cruets. (I'm Catholic, we use a font to hold holy water.) Of course, 'font' doesn't have five letters.

My first thought was abortion, but then I thought about Babs and made the right connection. Plus abortion is probably too dicey for J!.

YES!!! I also said; "Boob Job!" The wife was like, "HUH? AS IF!?" Lol that's my story and I'm stickin to it. Call me "Wrong-Way." Or Politically Incorrect!

Bah never even thought of Streisand's nose in Funny Girl it just didn't click, wife said 'same' although in retrospectometer, she knew the story.

Good game regardless with 42 correct responses and Lach Trash on Anasazi, Stiptic, Yorkshire, Woodrow Wilson.
Big Negbait on Tim McGraw TOM led me to Faith Hill.... closer read clicks for Taylor Swift debut single titled; "Tim McGraw" grrrrrr....

NHO CRUET; new word! Priests mark these 'A' for Agua and 'V' for Vino...

Instagets: Marshall plan, Don't Fear the Reaper (BOC) Bonfire of the Vanities (Sherman McCoy played by Tom Hanks with Melanie Griffith, by Tom Wolfe);
"Broadway Joe Namath", Minos >Crete; Toltecs > Mexico, the TOM gives half the response! (Rabbit) Angstrom > John Updike's Rabbit series
4/5 in Latin words with Australis = south, somniferent = sleep, Muralis = wall, fetidus = stinky >Smell/nose; NHO 'Dwarf Iris,' sigh.
Transylvania > Hungary region occupied/divided WWII; Alexandria VA (OMG, the Drive! THE DRIVE! NO MORE! LMAO)
"Regal" Capital >Victoria, BC (Also Regina, Saskatchewan, not supported by TOM); Black Beauty > Anna Sewell Novel
2011 film = War Horse (Joey, the Horse); Roy Rogers' horse = Trigger; Clam on Roddy Mcdowell in My Friend Flicka, 1943.
Cabinets for GW Bush, Reagan (AL Haig, James Watt), Nixon (John Conally - Sec TReas, George Romney Sec HUD!), Wilson (Wm Jennings Bryan, - SecState, Thomas R Marshall - VP).
INstagets on Rebar, Levee (American Pie, Don McLean), Ivory, Priors, Backup, Deadly Force, Last Known Address 'LKA', Vice (Squad).

Goodbye for now Vaughn, good solid run, glad you made it 5 games and looks likely you'll be at TOC! Gosh, if we don't get 14 more 5-day winners you will be playing 2-, 3- & 4- day champs!

So bye-bye, Miss American Pie

I think that was probably the most likely path. I spent about 10 seconds thinking, "what procedures would they have been doing in 1923?" and thinking I was just going to WAG something, and was leaning towards face lift. But then I decided to think about the actress who played Brice--> "Funny Girl"--> Streisand--> rhinoplasty with about 7 seconds left.

Nice run Vaughn!

That's what they are, but the priest uses no holy water in preparation of the Eucharist.

The Penn Pals clue with Broadway Joe was just way too easy. Were they expecting average age contestants to confuse Namath with Joe Montana? Montana being a PA native is much less common knowledge than Joe Namath's iconic nickname.

Good game by Elliot. Crossword clues seemed to be in his wheelhouse, so I would have liked to see him wager more on the DD.

I reasoned out "Nose-Job" about 20 seconds into the think music. Boob-job or sex-change (much less a clue about it) in 1923..... I don't think so.

Lach trash on 'Glean' and 'Left Behind'.
