CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Before I talk to all three players, we have good news for Wilcley Lima. Our judges have decided that American Eagle was sufficient a little while ago in the response you gave, so you're picking up $800. You now have $1,000. Now you spent most of your childhood where? In a foreign country?

Wilcley: I did, yeah. I spent a good chunk of my childhood in Brazil. That's where both my parents are from. So I was born in the U.S. and then moved there as a child. So I got to go to school, learn Portuguese, and spend lots of time with my cousins and everything.

Alex: Now the Olympics are coming up in Brazil. Are you gonna make it back there to enjoy all of that excitement?

Wilcley: Well, I think so. They're still--I still have some family over there, so there might be a chance to make it in there.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Bryna Fischer is an editor from Westlake Village in California. And you, I understand, are very fond of Yiddish curses. Now I'm not familiar with Yiddish curses.

[Bryna chuckles.]

Alex: Give me an example of one.

Bryna: You should grow like an onion with your head in the ground.

[Laughter]

Alex: Put 'em up! [Raises his fists in a fighting stance] That's a good one.




Alex: Erin Delaney is an English professor from North Hills, California. You work with dogs, I understand. Doing what?

Erin: We have--we have a couple family dogs, and so we've done agility with them, which is basically an obstacle course. They run up things, they run down things, they weave in and out of poles. It's lots of fun.

Alex: Is there a competition for this?

Erin: There is. We don't compete them 'cause they're still kinda new, but--but there is.

Alex: Okay.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Wilcley found the Daily Double on the 23rd clue. Erin had $3,800, Bryna had $4,200, and Wilcley was at $2,400. Wilcley made it a True Daily Double, wagering $2,400.

THE CONSTITUTION $600: The 5th Amendment says you can't be jailed "without" this phrase "of law", a protection rooted in Magna Carta

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
NFL TEAM NAMES $1000: This team that entered the AFL in 1960 gets its name from a frontiersman

THE EAGLES $600: Before winging it on their own, Glen Frey, Don Henley & other Eagles bandmates were often her backup group

THE EAGLES $1000: The eagle of this 12th century sultan adorns the coats of arms of Egypt & Iraq

THE CONSTITUTION $800: This future pres. missed only a "fraction of an hour" here or there as he took copious notes of the discussions
(Bryna: Who is Monroe?)
(Erin: Who is Jefferson?)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Wilcley: $5,800
Bryna: $5,200
Erin: $4,200

PREFINAL REMARKS
Alex: When PLAYWRIGHTS was revealed as the category for Final, Bryna looked over at Erin, our champion, who is an English professor, and smiled ruefully.

[Laughter]

Alex: Let's, uh, get to the clue right now...

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
PLAYWRIGHTS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Bryna: Wager $12,001 to cover Erin. Or, you could try out a Shoretegic bet of $4,401.
Erin: Your score is within 4/5ths of Bryna's, so wager between $5,601 (venusian) and $7,199 (martian), beating Bryna's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores while still covering against a doubled score on Wilcley's part.
Wilcley: You just can't cover a rational wager by Erin, nor can you win on a Triple Stumper. Improve your situation by wagering everything but a few bucks--and then getting Final right!

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
An 1892 Punch cartoon depicts him lounging with a cigarette & holding a fan with a name written on it

FINAL SCORES
Wilcley: $3,800 - $0 = $3,800 (Who is ?) (3rd place)
Erin: $14,800 + $14,798 = $29,598 (Who is Oscar Wilde?) (24402-day champion: $29,598)
Bryna: $17,600 - $12,001 = $5,599 (Who was Shaw) (2nd place)
(Alex: [To Erin] Were you thinking of Lady Windermere's Fan?)
(Erin: I was thinking of "lounging".)

Anna Karenina was pretty steep for $200 IMO.

Anyone else join me in saying "Da Bears" on NFL $200?

No idea why they thought to neg just "American Eagle" in the first place.

Lach Trash: Linda Ronstadt, Boris Karloff.

I knew fez = Shriners entirely from "Shriner's Convention".

I actually said "trapeze" out loud but somehow didn't think it fit the clue.

There's a Jezebel in the Bible?!

NHO "opportunity seldom knocks twice".

Blanked on Jay Baruchel even though I love HTTYD, ending up 4/5 there.

Is it just me, or do they use a different TOM to Wilde literally every time he comes up?

Given Count Vronsky, it was exactly where it should have been. You've obviously never heard of him, but that doesn't make any less the gimme.

I got FJ the exact same way the champ did -- lounging? With a cigarette and a fan? How about Wilde. Had no clue as to the significance of that fan.

DAAAAAA BEARS, so you're not alone, TPH.

When dude said "Yuletide", I maaaaaaay have lost my cool for a moment and yelled, "THERE ARE FOUR LETTERS!" at the screen.

Teased out FJ! through stereotyping more than lounging or any particular play.
"Who said anything about a horse?!"

"Also, how the bleep did I forget Russia even exists?!"- TPH

Russian name and killed by a train is what got it for me. Never read the book but learned about the train on Jeopardy.

Glad the old champ took a stab at the last clue.

Got Wilde on a guess as it just sounded like him for some reason. The fan meant nothing.

Congrats to Erin on another win. I had 51 correct responses including these triple stumpers: Buffalo Bills, Linda Ronstadt, James Madison, Primate, Ethiopia, and Boris Karloff. I also got FJ.

When Alex announced a score change, I thought they were going to neg the Browns when they wanted the name of the coach and not the team.

The NFL team names should have been right next to the Eagles category.

Same here. I think they did the right thing on American Eagle. Would've been funny to have Alex say, "We've got some good news and some bad news." Then Wilcley's score goes up by $800 and immediately down by $600.

So, next time they ask for that president that was assassinated in 1963, I hope the contestant responds "What (or Who) are the Kennedys?".

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.

I had Wilde for FJ and felt reasonably confident about it, although a small part of me was worried it was Shaw instead.

What is the term for getting FJ right for a wrong reason? My thoughts were "This sounds like the lifestyle of someone who could be called The Playboy of the Western World, and that play was written by Oscar Wilde", when that play was actually written by John Millington Synge.

Holding a fan with a name on it - Lady Windermere's Fan. Once I made that leap, 5 seconds in, Wilde was obvious.

I can't remember the year in the clue now, but LWF was first staged in 1892.

:D I was expecting "bad news after the ad break" too.

Bryna surprised me with her football gets and buzzer speed. Too bad on FJ.

Headslapper non-gets today - "swift something" DD (given that they had another DD recently) and "The gambia" clue. Game felt easier than normal :|

Instaget on FJ!
Good enough to lose on Jeopardy!
