CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Ben: My dad was in the Navy, stationed there. And the big Elvis Presley live via satellite concert that was broadcast around the world, uh, took place in Honolulu, and we were able to get tickets and sit up in the nosebleeds and watch him. And, um, and even though I don't have any recollection of it, my parents said that we definitely enjoyed it and had a great time.

Alex: I do have a recollection of that. It was directed by a man named Marty Pasetta, who directed the first game show I hosted in the United States.

Ben: Really?

Alex: Yeah.

Ben: Oh, awesome.

Alex: It was a special moment.




Alex: Ellen Huber from Morrisville, Pennsylvania. A big Doctor Who fan--not only the new series, but the old one, as well. A lot of publicity this year about the new series. What is it about that show that's so special?

Ellen: Well, who doesn't like a story about a madman traveling through space and time in a box? Um, it's just a nice, hopeful show. You know, a lot of times, there is always a happy ending. It's not always dystopian, but it's, just, it's fun. It's fun. And anybody can watch it.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: As you were speaking, Amelia hershberger was nodding in agreement. Are you a Doctor Who fan, as well?

Amelia: I am. I, too, am a Whovian.

Alex: A Whov--oh, you refer to yourselves as Whovians.

Amelia: I have als--I have come up with an alternate way of referring to us, which is Doctor Wholigans, but it has not caught on. [Chuckles]

Alex: I like, uh, the other one better.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
I'LL HAVE WHAT SHE'S HAVING $1000: Oo... lamb chunks marinated & served on a skewer or in a pita... this Greek word sounds good to me, as well!
(Ellen: What is slouvaki--or souvaki?)
(Amelia: What's a gyro?)

IF YOU BUILD "IT", HE WILL COME $800: SMU's school motto is this "liberabit vos", or "the truth will make you free"

IF YOU BUILD "IT", HE WILL COME $200: A kid's hand covering in the shape of Michigan's lower peninsula

I'M THE KING OF THE WORLD $1000: Africa's last absolute monarch, King Mswati III of this country has 15 wives but only 13 royal palaces

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME $600: The vandals conquered parts of Italy, Spain & Africa but their first home may have been this Danish peninsula

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME $400: Architect Julia Morgan designed a home with 61 bathrooms for William Randolph Hearst at this Calif. town

Just a weak game all around. I thought that was bold of the writers to do that category consisting of the other category names. It certainly made it easy for the contestant to sweep it, considering he knew what the answer was before he called for the clue. He looked like he was going to be a powerhouse at that point, but no, he wasn't.

For FJ, I knew it was going to be that minor island that was mentioned in a Sinatra song in the 40s but I couldn't remember it in time. I knew that any major island would be incorrect.

Not if you gave me 1000 guesses.

I was hoping to see the first tie under the new rules, though.

This Danish peninsula a TS? Oof.

LOL at the QB of America's team being a bottom row clue. Especially when the $1200 and $1600 clues needed seriously specific sports knowledge. Although I suppose on the $1200 clue since they asked for 1 of the 2 captains you could assume the pair of Magic/Bird. Otherwise MJ and others were major negbait.

Good for Ellen for going for big clues late when absolutely necessary. But unfortunately she then went TPH on us with no answer on FJ in addition to throwing away $1k in winnings.

And after that FJ answer I'm suddenly hungry for Italian food.

Stromboli?

I guessed Etna. Stupidly. Yikes. :oops: I think this was one of the more difficult FJs of the season, and I'm curious to see the polls on this.

I cheered at the end when we had a lock-tie score. I wish we could have had a tie at the end. Oh, well. Baby steps.

I agree this was not a great game The guy ran movie quotes (made easier with knowing what was coming uo though they weren't all that hard) and earned $3,000, which is what he finished with.

Tony Romo was way overvalued at the bottom level. Even casual NFL fans will know his name. I had no idea if he is a team captain, but the quarterback being one seemed a pretty logical guess after all the others were mentioned and he wasn't on the list. I got them all in that category, but Ted Turner should have been at the bottom.

No chance on FJ, guessed Sardinia. I got excited when Alex said S..., but it was not to be. At least he said it was tough.

If I knew Tony Romo, it certainly must have been overvalued! Stromboli, on the other hand... I said Malta for lack of anything better, though it's not exactly "off Sicily." If only they'd asked the setting of the Popeye movie.

Yeah, I was hoping for that as well.

We had Sardinia here. I've read the book and seen the James Mason movie, but had no recollection of what island it was. Maybe if there was an Ingrid Bergman TOM I could have gotten it.

Knowing that the whaleshark is the biggest fish seems like trivia 101.

The movie quotes category was insanely easy, especially since they had been given time to process all of them already.

Congrats to Amelia on her third win. I had 40 correct responses including these triple stumpers: veritas, Jutland, San Simeon, Remembrance of Things Past, common, and Garden of Gethsemane. I also got the missed Daily Doubles of whale shark and ensign. I guessed Sardinia for FJ.

There were a lot of triple stumpers that I was surprised by; off the top of my head: Gulf of Suez/Med. Sea, Remembrance of Things Past, veritas, and leopard seal. Romo as the highest value in a category that included Nicklaus/Ted Turner? Don't understand the reasoning behind that. Also, didn't understand the bearcat clue; Panda translates literally as bearcat in Mandarin but the bearcat isn't a "type" of panda, and bearcat isn't the "nickname" of the U. Cincinnati sports teams, its their actual name. And thought it was a tough FJ, mind wandered to either Sardinia or Lampedusa, so of course it was neither. Never fully read Journey to the Center of the Earth, and not intimately familiar with Italian geography, but I did know there was a third Italian active volcano, just wouldn't have been able to name it/know it had its own namesake island.

I agree with others that this was a tough FJ. I gathered they were probably looking for a volcanic island, and I was pretty sure that Etna was *on* Sicily and was hence incorrect, but I couldn't come up with the right thing. I wrote down "Malta" just to write down something, but I wasn't expecting it to be correct.

"Stromboli" sounded very familiar once I heard it. Congrats to those who came up with it. I imagine it'll poll fairly low.

I also got an above-average number of triple stumpers while watching this game.

WoW! @ TS mania and FIVE unrevealed clues! Win from stand-and-stares and Instaget FJ; the "Lighthouse of the Med" has been a DD in recent memory!

45R of 55 revealed; ~82%, with 15 LT: Souvlaki (correctly spelled * pronounced ;) ); truth = veritas (admittedly confusing clue, as in "WTH are they ASKING?!"); last king of Africa = Swaziland; Jutland = Danish island; Heart Castle in San Simeon; Proust Remembrance of Things Past (Q'est-ce que A la recherche du temps perdue?); common sense; seductive Cleopatra (VII) from "to lead"; Ryder Cup 1983, 87 = Jack Nicklaus; biggest fish = Whale Shark (Neither a whale nor a shark!); Leopard Seal got it's spots eating penguins; an Ensign is both a flag and a rank; Gethsemane Garden is @Mt of Olives; eagle >>> Aquiline, from Aquila the Eagle constellation; Latin >Aquila = Eagle, so "eagle-nosed"; and Gulf of Suez; ZOMG a runaway from Lach trash!
I venture to suggest a quick responder from the 4th Podium might well have revealed the last 5 clues and picked up a few more there as well... :o

All I could picture from FJ was Pat Boone supposedly naked in a tree after the group was thrown out of the volcano, but I had no idea it was on Stromboli. It probably sounds more familiar from the Disney "Pinocchio" movie bad guy than because it's an island off Sicily.

I got FJ in part because when I read the abridged kids version of "Journey" the title of the island reminded me of a villainous Disney character.

Edited to add:

What a neg fest.

During the first segment, I thought sure Ben would control the game by the end of DJ. He was definately superior to Amelia on the buzzer but like another contestant recently, he didn't know how to stay clam. IIRC, Ben's last neg in DJ was on a 2000 clue. If he would have just stayed clam for that clue, it would have left him with $5000 at the end of DJ, and likely allowed him to win on the TS Final Jeopardy.

Too bad he didn't get the FJ correct to force a tie-breaker. I'm sure he would have beat Amelia to the draw but would he have come up with the correct answer?

I was also hoping for Amelia to finish DJ in another second place wagering situation, to further scope her wagering skill (or lack of). She did well to risk $0 but I think most contestants would have gone for the win. Being aware of Ben's fast buzzer reaction would have played into it for me. I would have wagered $1999 unless I hated the category.

Ala slams rule expected Ben to win. As pointed above, Ben ended up with same score as he had after first category run. What a roller coaster it must have been - starting a game with a category run, brutal DJ round and that FJ! At least he wagered all in FJ.

I agree that Tony Romo was way overvalued...I couldn't get earlier cules, negged with MJ for Basketball clue :(
Blurted out Gulf of Sinai :o for Gulf of Suez (are they interchangeable?)

DJ round was tough for me too...man so hard to stay clam.
