Alex: Thank you, Johnny Gilbert. Hello, ladies and gentlemen. Good to have you with us again today on Jeopardy! I'm happy to announce that we have, for the first time this season, a champion who has won more than one game. Of course, this is only our fourth show in the new season, so that's not such a great accomplishment.

[Laughter]

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: First player we introduced on the program today, Natalie Lips, is known at work as the Coffee Monster.

[Natalie chuckles.]

Alex: Why?

Natalie: Because I'm always drinking coffee. Everyone at work always gives me crap about, you know, I always have a coffee in my hand, and if I don't have a coffee in my hand, I'm probably the not--not the best person to deal with.

Alex: All right, a lot of people need a cup of coffee in the morning to get them started. Uh, how much coffee do you drink in a day?

Natalie: Probably about four cups, maybe.

Alex: Oh, that's nothing.

[Laughter]

Alex: That's nothing, I don't drink coffee at all, but I don't think four cups of coffee in one day... is... [Alex jitters] is a lot.

[Laughter]




Alex: Bobby O'Neill.

Bobby: Yes.

Alex: Senior fraud investigator from Andover, Massachusetts.

Bobby: Yep.

Alex: Was made fun of by a Secret Service agent.

Bobby: I was.

Alex: What is this inter, uh, inter-rivalry there, or--interagency rivalry?

Bobby: Oh, not at all. Way more boring than that. So, uh, my beautiful girlfriend Caitlin and I were on a tour of the White House, and, uh, on the application form, I, uh, maybe didn't put the right birthday down.

Alex: Ooh.

Bobby: Uh, so she got detained for a minute or so. And I--I asked the Secret Service agent, you know, "Is this going to be a problem?" He said, "Oh, it's not a problem. You just don't know your girlfriend's birthday. That's never been a problem for anyone before."

Alex: Ooh.

Bobby: Yeah.

Alex: She's still your girlfriend?

Bobby: I learned it quick after--she is. She's right over there.

Alex: Yeah. Okay.

Bobby: Yeah.

Alex: So she's not your wife yet?

Bobby: Not yet. [Laughs]

Alex: Yeah, okay. You'd better not forget important dates like that if you guys get married, I'll tell ya.

[Laughter]




Alex: Audrey Watkins-Fox is our champion. Her favorite band is the Rolling Stones. And she also has... what?

Audrey: I have got the, uh, Rolling Stones tongue tattooed. I've got a Rolling Stones tongue tattoo. I just got to see 'em, like, last month. It was great. It was my fourth time. They're great. If you get a chance to see 'em, do it.

Alex: I'm a gracious host. I will not ask you where that tattoo is.

[Laughter]

Audrey: [Laughing] All right.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE

After Glow gives me my first run of the season after having at least one 4/5 in each game prior.

4/5 in name recognition in Actors/Actresses, all but Alison Brie, but I thought the paths to them were obscure. There's Something About Mary? Moneyball? Spanglish? I recognize those titles too, but outside maybe TSAM, they don't strike me as super insta recognizable movies.

First "crap" in a contestant interview?

Champ really struggled. I think that's the first time I've ever seen someone hit a DD, max it out correctly, and still be in the hole.

I wonder if the "Away in a Manger" clue confused any non-Americans? The clue used "Mueller", the melody most Americans use for that carol, but nearly all other countries use "Cradle Song" instead. I had no idea on "Give My Regards to Broadway" or "O Sole Mio".

LTAM with three clues, and they sound the beeps after only one? I smell an edit. It sounded like there was a jump cut when Alex announced the FJ! category, so I wouldn't rule out the last two musicals being stand-and-stares.

I might as well have not played along to FJ!, because no way was I getting anywhere with Biology, Musicals, British Houses, and all that obscure crap in the Nook category. I literally had a $0 net gain in Coryat in that round, thanks in part to two negs.

Spent the entire 30 seconds trying to remember who Matthew Brady was, but once again, the name was just too generic to trigger anything. But as soon as Alex mentioned photography, I knew exactly who they were looking for. Curse you, generic names that don't stick in my head!

Congratulations to Natalie on her win. She did especially well with the pop-culture clues. I had 33 correct responses including four triple stumpers: Alberta, "O sole mio", "Evangeline", and biogenesis (I wonder why my spell checker underlines "biogenesis"). I got FJ, but it took a few seconds.

Yeah that was odd, but I missed her interview and figured it must have come up then.

Couple of bad guesses for FJ there.

I guess we saw Natalie's tattoo because she was closest to the camera and was wearing a skirt that exposed her lower leg. Audrey was in the back and I think she had on pants, though her tattoo may not have been somewhere you could show on TV.

No clue on FJ, guessed Eastman.

I was on automatic pilot ignore mode for the 20 second commercial insert, but when I looked up, I only caught the last 2 seconds of the close-up. It was so out of place, I didn't notice the tattoo until after they switched to the full body shot.
Perhaps somebody could post a screen capture of the tattoo to see if there was any significance..

Audry's crash & burn was pretty bad. When Bobby's score started plummeting, I thought we may have a one person FJ.

Bobby looked as if he was going to be an aggressive player when he jumped to the bottom clues, but he couldn't back up his apparent intentions. Good for Natalie to stay steady while her two opponents were struggling. Glad they both ended on the plus side, at least, and it was fun to see Audrey come up with the solo FJ get.

Usually when Jeopardy is preempted for football, an alternate station carries it, but it had Family Feud today, so I didn't see it.

Looking at the FJ on here, it wasn't instant, but still got it. Usually, I know years of death, but not Daguerre's; well-known photography pioneer and took a guess.

I know that jumping about is a thing, it throws off the others, etc., but I think it ruins clues more often than not. The contestants don't have the feel of the category and miss ones they would have gotten had they run the category, as Natalie did with "After Glow."

I am not confident enough in Biology. I knew them all but didn't ring in. Sigh.

That would have been Audrey's third show in a row, right? She looked exhausted. Natalie had the advantage of drinking caffeine while waiting. :)

Hats off to Audrey for her FJ. It made sense to me once I heard it.

This episode was filmed after lunch, and Audrey fell victim of the adrenaline-crash + turkey sandwich combo. That tryptophan is a bitch.

"E" READER should be mandatory studying for any contestants in the pool.

Whatever Audrey had for lunch it did not work. (Ah, thanks caknuck for insight.)

Natalie was good, but not that many times better as the scoreboard indicated. I was wrong about the Combined Coryat being higher again as once again it was 21600. Of course not seeing 6 clues tonight doesn't help although it was an improvement over the 9 unplayed yesterday.

Tonight's FJ! was a good demonstration why I'm glad I got on the show in my 40s and not my 50s. I wrote Lumier and before I could finish it I stopped, knowing that they were brothers in the movie field later in the century. The clue was indicating one person. I had to do Mathew Brady/photographer multiple times in my head before Daguerre came to me.

While I am happy to get the solve it's discouraging to take almost half the time when it should take less than five seconds to get there.

FJ -- got it, but after a moment or two or waffling (3-1 this season)
TS gets -- barge, Alberta, House of Grey
Misses -- Tudor (York), flare-up (outbreak... acceptable?)

Bobby worked in "my beautiful girlfriend Kaitlyn", partially because Corina coached us to "Say their names; they'll love it!"

I was hoping secretly hoping Bobby had some scandalous ink -- a trampstamp depicting the "Full House" cast or some such -- when they played tattoo show-and-tell.

Crossed out Lumiere and put down Daguerre after ten seconds or so.

Natalie seems like a solid player.

Maybe Natalie consumed her requisite four cups of coffee before this game, my goodness her signaling speed.

I can't tell if that tattoo is a button or a round pretzel.

Hooray, I got FJ for the first time this week, so I won't go 0-for-the-season.
