CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: First player we introduce--Danielle Stillman-Diederich from Houston, Texas--who's been an Irish dancer for how long?

Danielle: 15 years now. Um, I started off just kind of as something fun to do, and it became an obsession. And, uh, everybody says, "Oh, I see the red hair. You're Irish." I'm actually more Mexican than anything else.

[Laughter]

Alex: Oh, really?

Danielle: But Irish dance is for everybody.

Alex: Now is Irish dancing primarily a solo activity or... more often in groups?

Danielle: We both do solos and teams.

Alex: Yeah?

Danielle: Yep.

Alex: Which is more fun?

Danielle: I like solos just because it's a challenge. Um, but, uh, teams is really fun as well.

Alex: Yeah. Socializing, too.




Alex: Norine Noonan, university professor from Florida. You do something. You raise and show a breed of dog that I have a great deal of admiration for and yet, I've never owned one--a standard poodle.

Norine: Standard poodle.

Alex: Tell me what's special about them.

Norine: Well, use your noodle, get a poodle.

[Laughter]

Norine: Um, poodles are wonderful. They are very smart, extremely smart. Very biddable, very trainable. And, um, they are not like border collies. They don't need a job every moment of the day. They will also sit on the couch and have a martini with you if you want.

Alex: [Laughs] That's my kind of dog. Way to go. Maybe I oughta get one of those. Thank you.




Alex: Katrina Mundinger from Minneapolis, Minnesota, is our champion. She is a musician who does something else that I'm a big fan of and admirer of--you spin your own yarn.

Katrina: Yes, I do.

Alex: For knitting and whatever else?

Katrina: No, I just make the yarn.

Alex: Oh, you just make--

Katrina: And then I collect--I collect the yarn that I make. I also knit, um, but I rarely make anything out of the yarn that I spin. I mean, I've made a couple of things here and there. A hat for my husband.

Alex: But spinning... now where do you get the wool? From which animals?

Katrina: I--well, usually, I spin out of wool from sheep.

Alex: Have you gotten anything from muskoxen?

Katrina: No, I haven't, but I've had a chance to--to touch it. And it is...

Alex: Delightful, isn't it?

Katrina: It just--oh, the feeling of it is just amazing.

Alex: It's light. It's very--

Katrina: I wish I could afford it. Well, maybe I can afford some of it now.

Alex: Great insulation.

Katrina: [Chuckles] Yes.

Alex: And it's also very expensive.

Katrina: Yeah. Yeah.

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Katrina: $9,600
Danielle: $7,000
Norine: $5,800

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
WORDS & THEIR USE

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Two-thirds for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Katrina: Wager $4,401 to cover Danielle.
Danielle: You ought to wager to cover Norine, 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 $7,000. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $4,600 (to shut out Norine) or less than $1,800 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Norine). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Katrina.
Norine: Consider risking $600, thereby beating Katrina on the Triple Stumper (should Katrina wager to cover Danielle's doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
Originally an electronics word for an output signal returning as input, today it means "criticism" or "evaluation"

FINAL SCORES
Norine: $5,800 - $4,000 = $1,800 (What is backspace?) (3rd place)
Danielle: $7,000 + $5,000 = $12,000 (What is feedback?) (2nd place)
Katrina: $9,600 + $5,000 = $14,600 (What is feedback?) (7401-day champion: $14,600)

Should be quiet today since only third place overwagered in FJ. But I loved her reaction to hitting the DD, so that makes up for it.

I hate word origin FJs and this was no exception. I put down review, which I knew was wrong but better than nothing.

Got FJ! before Alex finished reading it. Helps if you have experience playing in bands. Pretty standard definition of feedback in the clue too.

Oh, and if you ask for a NYC borough in the top box and mention the ferry, and it's not Staten Island, you're a dick.

Poor Danielle. Her descent in DJ was a mixed grill of eating negbait (Brooklyn), not thinking carefully between two plausible alternatives (Emerson), and making wild guesses (Taney).

Didja notice that snarky plug the writers put in for Aleve?

I actually did think of Brooklyn first, but switched to Staten Island when they got to the part about of the ferry.

Exactly. From now on, whenever anyone asked what a neg-bait clue is, this is a prime example.

Danielle garners $1000 of a possible $3000 in the Bible category and Alex tells her good job. Hilarious.

Good luck with those three contestants correctly answering the last event in the decathlon. Just don't see much sports interest from them.

Norine says "holy crap" when finding a precious DD. Definitely not going to see a good wager after that!

Good for Katrina for making it a TDD early in DJ!

Guess I shouldn't be surprised with three round number wagers in FJ, at least Katrina made a cover wager! Can't believe (OK, I can) that after watching yesterday's game that Danielle didn't wager everything in hopes of a repeat. Contestants have all these clues in front of them yet almost never act on them.

Congrats to Katrina on another win. I had 41 correct responses including these triple stumpers: Discovery, 1500-meter, Continental, Czech Republic, San Marino, Miranda Lambert, and Brooklyn. I also got the missed DD of South Sudan, and I got FJ.

Cold-blooded. I mean, sometimes, you just have to know the facts, but come on J! writers, you knew what you were doing, and you knew what would happen..

Instaget FJ before he even got to the part about criticism.

Instaget on the FJ.

Got 41R, 5W ($31,000 Coryat). Got these: 1500m, Philemon, Discovery, Taney, Czech Republic, San Marino (almost went Vatican), Soul, and Miranda Lambert. Also hit all three DD's. Bit hard on the Brooklyn negbait.

You have to figure this was before the Brooklyn Bridge was built, thus a ferry.

Same here. I was expecting a triple get but I guess the electronics part threw off the middle contestant.

I was disappointed in Dannielle for giving a group of people (Philippians) when the clue asked for 'this Apostle'. She seemed to be doing so well in that category.
And what did she answer for the olympic event? 10 kilometers?
Oh well, I wanted Katrina to win anyway.
