CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Many years ago, during tough times here in the United States, a number of young men fled to Canada to avoid military service. Julie Stapel, you're an attorney from Illinois. You fled to Canada to avoid something different.

Julie: Yeah, being in the Junior Miss Pageant.

Alex: Really?

Julie: Yeah. I was nominated to be the representative of the debate team in the Junior Miss Pageant, and I was like, "No." And, uh, the Shakespeare class I was in, uh, was doing a weekend trip to Atratford-on-Av--or Stratford, you know, in Ontario. So I said, "I'm doing that." I joined the generations of dodgers before me and went to Canada.

Alex: Okay. No regrets.

Julie: No!

Alex: All right.




Alex: Damien Martin is a travel adviser from Kansas who likes to think of himself as someone who makes people's dreams come true.

Damien: Yes. And I actually know a lot more about airports than I just let on.

[Laughter]

Damien: But yeah, we like to use the term "travel adviser", not "travel agent", because I'm not just gonna take your order, book your flight, and say goodbye. I'm gonna get to know you so I can plan a customized vacation for you.

Alex: Have you also gotten to know a lot of the places you recommend to the people who come to you for help?

Damien: Yes, yes. I--one of the perks of the job is that you have to know what you're talking about, so you have to go travel to all these places.

Alex: Good job to have.

Damien: Yes, it is.

Alex: I've always wanted to be a travel adviser.




Alex: Nikki Grillos is from New York. And she started a theater company with friends from college.

Nikki: Yes!

Alex: What kind of a theater company are we talking about here?

Nikki: It's-it's really just a group of college friends, and at NYU, we were in a group called Schmutz, believe it or not. We're not of that level group. And it was the only group that offered non-majors theatrical opportunity.

Alex: Mm-hm.

Nikki: So we just kept that going, and we're open to nine-to-fivers, people who don't work in theater.

Alex: So it's amateursville.

Nikki: It can be, but we've also launched several careers.

Alex: Oh, good. And you produce schmutz?

Nikki: Schmutz.

Alex: Okay.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Julie found the Daily Double on the 20th clue. Nikki had $2,600, Damien was in the red with -$1,400, and Julie was at $1,000. Julie made it a True Daily Double, wagering $1,000.

ART $400: It's the Italian term for a mural technique using water-based paint on lime plaster; the Sistine Chapel has examples
(Julie: What's imbroglio?)

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
LET'S GO TO THE AIRPORT $400: On March 23, 1963 JFK dedicated this airport, saying, "There is no other airport in the world which serves so many people"
(Julie: What is Hartsfield, in Atlanta?)
(Damien: What is Idlewild Airport?)
...
(Alex: Julie, it was closer to your home. It's [*].)
(Julie: Oh.)

LET'S GO TO THE AIRPORT $1000: Thanks to FedEx, this city has the USA's largest cargo airport, handling over 4.3 million tons each year
(Julie: What is Nashville?)
(Damien: What is Charlotte?)
...
(Alex: What is [*]? The home of FedEx.)

ART $800: (Jimmy of the Clue Crew presents.) A self-taught late bloomer who only began to paint seriously in his 40s, this French artist earned the admiration of avant-garde artists with what is often called his naive style

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Nikki: $5,800
Julie: $800
Damien: -$1,400

I'm sorry, Damien, but we will have to rule you incorrect on FJ because you did not phrase it in the form of a question.

Julie seemed like a nice lady, but her dress made my eyes hurt. [/Fashion Huns]

Nikki had a near lock, but still kind of a bleah game. Good job by Julie to attack the bottom of the board late to make FJ matter. Both players also made the right bets in FJ, so at least we finished on a high note.

I liked Nikki's interview story. Sounds like a fun group.

I actually got FJ right today. It isn't a country I hear spoken very often, so I wasn't 100% the d was silent and also wasn't sure if it is on the horn of Africa, but it worked out for me.

Good grief. Travel advisor guy gets four negs on the airport category (would he have answered "DiBlasio" on the $200 clue?), spends all game furiously trying to get out of the hole, does, and then hops back in in the most ridiculous way. I feel for him, I really do, but man that is quality television.

Instaget FJ for a political geography fan, but how silent is that letter? Is it not possible that without the D you would pronounce it Zhibouti?

Well shake Djibouti. When I saw Damien introduced, I said, "That's the new champion." That might be my single worst call ever.

I did a lot better than the contestants did in airports. A lot of the categories, actually. TOM on polling didn't help them get Gallup.

Missed DDs: I got fresco, Pecos.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

I rarely travel. Off the top of my head, I think I've been in six airports in my entire life. I consider movies and television a strength.

I went 4 for 5 in Airports and 0 for 5 in Movies By The Numbers. :shock:

This was a pretty painful game to watch, overall. By the end I was yelling at Damien to stop guessing.

Congrats to Nikki on another win. I had 35 correct responses including three triple stumpers: Memphis, Zuni, and Whoville. I also got the missed DD of fresco, and I got FJ.

That wasn't a lockout entirely due to a weak DD wager.

Damien didn't just give wrong answers, he gave stupid answers. Granted, getting the DD on the first pick of the board is dumb luck, but I did a quick Google search after that to see if the all-time worst score was in jeopardy.

Anyway, on that "Ends in -oon" category, could "dragoon" have been considered in place of "platoon" on that clue?

38 R by not guessing wildly and indiscriminately. Sorry Damien, you look like a nice fellow, but gosh, you earned the benchtime. Getting FJ from the audience is worth... "Plenty of nuttin!"! :!:

Instaget FJ; 7 LT: Henri Rousseau (The Football Players); Z is for Zuni; Terry Pratchett's Discworld; ; Gallup NM (Indian Capital of the world, AKA "Native Americans" rather than citizens of India); Three Days of the Condor (All the President's Men zipped thru mind quickly but TOM redirected); Blackhawk War of 1832 (Lincoln's war); Whoville ("A person's a person, no matter how small!").
Got the missed DD on "fresco." Nikki plays well; her greatest talent lies in not guessing when she doesn't know... nicely done champ! :D

And, um, no, to above query on 'dragoon', which is mounted infantry; the specific TOM was 'part of a company' and 'led by lieutenants' which are specific to US Army rank, order and structure.

Football shunted Jeopardy over to the digital sub-channel tonight, but the listings didn't reflect that as opposed to every other Thursday night game this football season, so I missed the first round. I am trying to figure out why the middle guy guessed on that last question. He was probably going to be in a lock for third anyway, so just shut up and make it to FJ. But no.
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

Instaget FJ (heck, by limiting the geographical area in play to the Horn of Africa, there were only 4 countries to choose from).

The less said about the game itself, and Nikki's DD wagering (which is a repeat of her wagering from last night), the better.

In Damien's defense, a couple of the airport clues were a little neg-baity. For example, Hartsfield vs. O'Hare. It's a little misleading to talk about JFK dedicating ORD in 1963, because that facility dates back to the 1940s, and it had actually been renamed O'Hare back in 1949. And Hartsfield and O'Hare are perennial rivals for most passenger traffic among U.S. airports, so I could see how the quote would lead one to Atlanta. Of course, once ATL was negged, someone should have tried for the rebound with ORD.

And I could see thinking "Heathrow only has 2 runways?" Although 73.4 million passengers annually was way too many for Gatwick.

Unrelatedly, I thought that Dole v. Chiquita bananas was neg-baity for the point value.

Since second place pretty much had to go all in and the fact he got it right, he might have gotten second place if he clams on the last clue. (I'd have to check the scores to see if Julie could have protected second while still going for the win in FJ).

I don't have the game handy, so I don't remember what Nikki's DD wager was or why it was bad.

But he was probably able to score a free flight and hotel room on his trip, so Julie probably needed the extra grand, anyway.

Has anyone ever been able to give basically a free ad for their business during the interview?

My thoughts exactly. He at least got to prove he knew FJ. I thought that was a nice touch.

I found it interesting that, while the leader had more than double the combined total of the second and third place players at the end of DJ, it wasn't a lock. That probably doesn't happen too often.

Brian
...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Nikki had a $9,800 to $800 lead over Julie and she wagered $1,200 on an $800-level DD. And then, of course, she proceeded to correctly solve the DD.

This game picked up where yesterday's left off. What a barn burner.

I scratch my head at why anyone in the red would start out the DJ round by shopping for the Daily Double.
Then when Damion finds it on the first selection, after he misses to go another $2000 in the red, he continues to look for the other DD. At which he had four straight stand & stares.
Not surprised Alex suggested he switch to a top row clue. Damion decided to wait until the LTAM to take that advise.

It was predicted in Wednesday's thread that Nikki would be a single win champ but she managed to coast to another win by drawing a weak challenger. Another timid DD bet (on a second row clue) helped keep Julie in contention.
Good gets on high dollar clues by Julie late in the game to prevent FJ from being a boring excercise.
One thing I can say about Nikki is that she does know how to wager properly in Final.
