CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Abbie Micucci is a stay-at-home mom from Massachusetts who has been on many adventures in her life but considers her greatest adventure having two boys. How old are these guys?

Abbie: They're 8 and 11.

Alex: And why is it such an adventure with them?

Abbie: There are no boys in my family. These were the first boys. My mom has sisters. My dad has sisters. I have a sister, but...

Alex: So these two boys must get an awful lot of loving from the grandparents.

Abbie: They do. They do.

Alex: Yeah, but what's the problem? Is there any kind of a problem? Do they fight?

Abbie: Oh, no, no, they're perfectly well-behaved.

Alex: Yeah, they're gonna get you now.

[Laughter]




Alex: Jeremy Reff, on yesterday's program, we talked about how two of our contestants met their future wives. Now how did you meet your future wife?

Jeremy: Well, I was hiking with some friends, and one of them said he'd gone on a really bad date. I said, "Oh, what was bad about it?" He said, "Well, she was really smart. She was really pretty. She left the date 'cause she wasn't interested in me to go hear a rock show." And I said, well, I wanna meet this woman, and so I did, and now we're married.

Alex: Good for you. All right. It's amazing how things work out.




Alex: Now John Schultz is our champion. Is it true you have a nanny cam not for children but for your pet?

John: That's right. My wife Elizabeth and I--we, uh, we really dote on our dog Hector.

Alex: What kind of dog are we talking about?

John: He's all kinds of dog. He's got a little--he mostly looks like a Welsh corgi mixed with a German shepherd, so he's short but long. He's got a long tail.

[Laughter]

Alex: And? So you got this c--

John: So we got a camera. You know, we have him--right now our--my parents-in-law are watching him, but we took the nanny cam over to their house and plugged it in in the spare bedroom, so we can see what he's doing.

Alex: What are you looking for? I mean, what are you --

John: Just to make sure that he's got--you know, he's feeling good. He's got the right temperament. He's getting enough sleep.

I thought Name That Verb needed an explanation. "Mark" seemed too Sheldon Cooperish without it.

Oddly, I got everything but the first clue in both Verb and "Out, Let". Somehow at $400, I heard "cut of meat" and was thinking cutlet, riblet, etc. and getting nowhere.

Green Giant makes canned vegetables too? I thought they only did frozen.

NHO "full admiral".

Sheepshank and Germany were super overvalued.

No way was I getting FJ!

If I was going to guess, I'd still pick a musical not named after another location.

Besides that, impressive performance by the champ on a pretty tough board.

There is no such rank. It's generally used to differentiate it from Rear and Vice Admiral, as you can refer to any of the three as simply "Admiral Soandso". Kinda like having a Lt. Colonel and "full bird" Colonel (which you've probably never heard of either).

The only thing with the Germany clue was that unless you knew the lake it referenced, it could equally have been Switzerland or Austria. I would have clammed.

I saw an amateur production of "The Music Man" a few months ago, so that was enough of a refresher to make it an insta-get. I think I would have struggled otherwise. "Gary, Indiana" is also in the show, which I think is a more memorable tune.

And don't forget at the time of his promotion, Commodore was a recognized rank, in between Captain and Rear Admiral, which was retired from US Navy although foreign navies still have it.
