CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Jennifer Sterling is from Burbank, California. And on a visit abroad, she did something which, if I remember correctly, requires a great deal of physical dexterity.

Jennifer: Yes, it does.

Alex: You were visiting the British Isles...

Jennifer: Yes.

Alex: And in particular...

Jennifer: Uh, Ireland. Yes.

Alex: Ireland. And...

Jennifer: I kissed the Blarney Stone when I was 10.

Alex: Now is it true you have to bend over backwards and somebody has to hold you so you don't fall through the hole?

Jennifer: Yes. It was a little scary, but...

Alex: Would you do it again?

Jennifer: I would do it again. It brought me enough--enough luck to bring me here, so...

Alex: Oh, it did bring you luck?

Jennifer: Well, I'm lucky enough to be picked for Jeopardy!, so...

Alex: Okay, well, that's a great way to look at it.




Alex: Russell Allen is from Yarmouth, Massachusetts. Manages a website that deals with what particularly?

Russell: I, uh, write reviews for original Lifetime movies.

Alex: Original Lifetime movies.

Russell: That's right.

Alex: Which means what?

Russell: It means, uh, well, starting in health class in high school, they were kind of teen panic movies that were about eating disorders and drug abuse. And I just kept watching them from there and I fell in love with them.

Alex: And you write reviews of this stuff?

Russell: I do. My favorite is, uh--stars Molly Ringwald about a lawyer defending someone who is a bigamist with amnesia. It's very exciting.

[Laughter]

Alex: That would be a good excuse. "I don't remember, your honor. I don't remember. Emily or Betty or Sally, but they're all cute."




Alex: Kyle Webb is our champion. She is a veterinary clinical pathologist. Now we discovered a few days ago that, uh, she has administered eyedrops to alligators, but she is also an expert on shark blood.

Kyle: That's correct.

Alex: What's so special about shark blood?

Kyle: Well, we don't know what their white blood cells do, so I've set out to find out.

Alex: Good for you.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Kyle found the Daily Double on the 27th clue. Kyle had $5,800, Russell had $2,600, and Jennifer was at $2,200. Kyle wagered $1,000.

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Kyle: $12,400
Russell: $8,600
Jennifer: $7,800

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
FAMOUS BRITS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Two-thirds for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Kyle: Wager $4,801 to cover Russell.
Russell: You ought to wager to cover Jennifer, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you should choose between wagering $0 and maximizing your winnings by betting all $8,600. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $7,000 (to shut out Jennifer) or less than $1,000 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Jennifer). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Kyle.
Jennifer: Consider risking $200, thereby beating Kyle on the Triple Stumper (should Kyle wager to cover Russell's doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
Growing up, her favorite literary heroine was Jo March; they shared a name & a hot temper & they both wanted to write

FINAL SCORES
Jennifer: $7,800 - $7,800 = $0 (Who is) (3rd place)
Russell: $8,600 - $5,899 = $2,701 (Who is Abbot) (2nd place)
Kyle: $12,400 + $4,801 = $17,201 (Who is JK Rowling?) (28000-day champion: $17,201)
(Alex: And this famous Brit goes by the nickname "Jo".)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $17,400

Congrats to Kyle. Thought FJ was pretty simple, surprised they had trouble with it.

So what will Keith have to drink tonight?

Thought it was odd in the first round when with ~10 clues left Kyle chose the only one guaranteed not to hold the DD. But the very next clue she went to the middle of an untouched category seemingly DD hunting.

Wonder if any of the In Memoriam clues will be used in the upcoming contestant tests? Think Blue Lion nailed the first two in his test!

Very sad that Kyle made useless wagers on both 2nd row clue DD's. She looks so calm during game play, but upon hitting a DD looks like a deer in headlights. I know she's here and wanted to be aggressive, but am wondering if she considered any DD scenarios before make the trip.

In the end though, very nice solo solve in FJ. Almost made me forget the suicide wager from third. Almost. :D

Congrats to Kyle on her third win. I had 43 correct responses including these triple stumpers: modest, Durango, Lowell, maglev, Boss Tweed, garbology, Remington, and Yellow Sea. I also got the missed Daily Doubles of Muses and globalization, and I got FJ.

Definitely not an instaget for me, and I was sidetracked by the bit about her being hot tempered, but as a super famous writer with first initial J, this was gettable. I vaguely knew her name was Jo, maybe...

I said "Guy Fawkes plot" for "Gunpowder Plot," and wasn't sure if I could maybe have squeaked in?

Nope. He was one of the plotters, but there were many.

I had a couple of smart-ass answers during the Jeopardy round: "velocipede" for bicycle, and "Dog Star" for Sirius. Given the clue for the latter, I'm sure the judges would have negged that; what about the former?

Too bad "South China Sea" was guessed for the Yellow Sea clue instead of "East China Sea." I was compelled to accept the latter as correct when I presented the same clue in TD 254; I would have liked to see whether the judges reached the same conclusion.

I got FJ right but it was terribly unpinned. It could literally be almost any famous British Jo who was born after 1900 or so (giving the novel time to pick up steam). As my boyfriend joked, "It's that famous dental hygenist from Sussex who always wished she'd been an author!" (But he actually got it right, too.)

Yep. I may have used the following example before on these boards, but it's a bit like

"They were the most beloved popular music quartet from Liverpool." -- Not an ideal clue, even though it's intuitively obvious who I mean. Most beloved by who? How do you measure that?

"In February 2014, Entertainment Weekly called them the most beloved popular music quartet from Liverpool." -- Good clue if the citation is correct. Nobody who gets the right answer is getting it because of the mention of Entertainment Weekly, but citing a specific source is a way of ensuring that the clue has only one correct answer.

Technically speaking, tonight's FJ, as written, didn't even require the person to be a published author!

40R, slow get on FJ as TOM suggested to me someone from 19th century... then it dawned on me that a 'famous writer' could have read Alcott a bit LATER ON... LOL.

Jennifer was sweet and bright, but again followed this weeks' contestant form and bet the farm, leaving nothing behind...
she could have taken 2nd place, sparing $100 and still would've had a chance if the other players bombed carry a win or at least to cover her airfare.
WHY do ppl keep betting it ALL!?!

J! rewards peeps that bother to learn the names that authors' initials stand for... like Alan Alexander Milne, Cecil Scott Forester, Clive Staples Lewis, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, William Somerset Maugham, Thomas Stearns Eliot, Elwyn Brooks White, Terence Hanbury White, George Raymond Richard Martin, to name a few... and Joanne Rowling (No Middle Initial; J.K. is purely pseudonym!)

LT: Glyph ('G' words); Tammany hall > Boss Tweed; Frederick Remington, The Cheyenne; also The Scout common ask; Alberto Giacomettiwas featured on LL67 as I recall, his Walking Man is on a Swiss Bank Note; Yellow Sea (twice taken LT on this TS!); Maglev. Other Swiss artist "must know": Paul Klee.
The corridors of my mind are plastered with 3M Post-It notes!

I didn't like the "She" followed by "They" wording in the clue. That flumoxed me for more than half of the think time, trying to figure out if the answer was actually more than one person.
I wasn't going to come up with it anyway, since I care so little about that genre.

As for the wagering, I swear these people must still be thinking they get to keep the money if they get it right.

Edmund Fitzgerald a bottom row clue, when spotted the date, the year, Lake Superior, broken in two pieces, yada, yada.... come on writers.

WLT Beijing at $400?

"Meet the Fluckers" had me laughing so hard that I missed the easy Knox and Boss Tweed clues. I also spaced on Delaware and Bull Run, ending up with only $2,000.

I thought Anthropolo"G" would be tough, but I somehow ran it. Also ran Meaty Words.

Wes Craven, BB King, and James Horner were all on the tip of my tongue but I couldn't get them.

No guess on FJ!

Congrats to Kyle on her third win. Again, she owned that buzzer. And again, it was disappointing to see her wagering so conservatively on DD's, especially second-row ones (although those low wagers ended up helping her).

Not having read any of the Harry Potter books, and not guessing that the author in question would be so recent, and would be someone popularly known by initials, I had no chance on this FJ. (I'm sure I knew what the "J" in her name stood for, but I got nowhere near accessing that information.) I wrote "Josephine Baker" just to say something, and it turns out she's not even a writer! Well, not a published one, anyway; maybe she wrote a novel and just never submitted the manuscript to anyone. :) So now I've clinched my worst non-TOC FJ week of the season (1-3 so far). And I wasted a performance in which I picked up LT with modest, Durango, Percival Lowell, maglev, muses (on the DD), glyph, Boss Tweed, and Remington. On maglev, it helped that just last weekend I had a twitter convo with Jennifer Morrow about high-speed rail, and maglev was specifically mentioned in one of my tweets, after I came across references to 300-plus MPH maglev trains while googling during the course of the convo. :) Not sure if I would have gotten that clue prior to last weekend. Certainly, although I've heard the term before, it wouldn't have been fresh in my mind.

I did lose $2K by wagging garbagology for garbology -- so close! -- although I'd like to think I wouldn't have been so reckless if I'd been in the studio.

ETA: Like one of the posters above, I had "Guy Fawkes plot" for "gunpowder plot," and I'm counting myself correct on that.

Is "cultural globalization" really that well-known a term that it warranted placement as a second-row DD (and yes, I realize we were spotted the first letter of "globalization")? I had NHOI. I've heard the word "globalization" a bazillion times, but never in conjunction with "cultural." Is it just me?

I love a good "Mark Miss."

ON THE MOVE $200: The Draisine, one of the first of these, appeared in 1817 & had to be straddled & walked--there were no pedals

I blurted piano as I went off "pedals" and pictured something out of an old black & white short. :oops:

Fine, the contestants don't know Maglev or James Horner. Boss Tweed and Remington have been used on trivia game shows forever and those are the kind that need someone to get them.

Thank you Russell for getting Ernie Banks as I prefer to keep my J! watching rated G.

The FJ! clue took me a second reading to process it and how to proceed. The light bulb went on and for what seemed like a long two seconds I went to access Harry Potter author and the name was not there. I'm not that much around the bend, so I was not about to blank on that name as I took a breath and then locked in the correct response.

If the next TOC were to happen in November then J! is on pace to have more than one 3x winner in the mix. Kyle could be in even better shape with a win tomorrow to close out the week. 2/3 on FJ! clues, 3/5 on DDs, 1+L+1 and with a 16,067 Coryat avg. is better than some TOC competitors have looked after 3 games.

But only if they're "famous," as per the category name.

Although I suppose you could nitpick that too... :)
