CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Peyton Brown is involved in something that sounds like a labor of love. You are producing a comedy album, and it's not going to be on CD, it's not going to be on some kind of a technical thing. It's going to be on...?

Peyton: On vinyl.

Alex: Wow.

Peyton: Yeah, with my friend Jared. We figured because there was already very little audience for a long-form narrative comedy album, we would also make it difficult to get and play.

[Laughter]

Alex: I love it, I love it. That's funny in and of itself.

Peyton: Yeah.

Alex: Way to go.




Alex: Harris Stutman, a medical informaticist? What is that?

Harris: I work with electronic, uh, medical records, and hopefully if you find, uh, your doctor is sending prescriptions automatically to the pharmacist, you think that's a great idea, if you think your doctor's spending too much time staring at the computer instead of you, then I'm not doing my job very well.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Laurie MacDougall. I just read something about you here. It says that you saw the first two shows at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. You don't look that old.

[Laughter]

Laurie: The new Shakespeare's Globe, not the old one.

Alex: And what were the two plays you saw?

Laurie: They were Henry V starring Mark Rylance and, um, The Winter's Tale, and I got to be a groundling for The Winter's Tale and get dirt kicked in my face. It was wonderful.

Alex: Sounds like a lot of fun.

Laurie: It was.

Alex: Okay. Good experience.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Harris found the Daily Double on the 27th clue. Laurie had $2,800, Harris had $4,000, and Peyton was at $3,200. Harris wagered $1,000.

HUGE TRACTS "O" LAND $800: The Musgrave Mountain Range is in this region that by some definitions, covers 80% of a continent
(Alex: Harris?)
(Harris: I don't know.)

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
THE CONSCIENCE FUND $800: A religious vet sent $500 for stealing from the military, writing, "I am" one of these, "However, I was not always"
(Peyton: What is a thief?)
(Laurie: What is a coward?)

EDIBLE EXPRESSIONS $400: 4-word expression meaning absolutely everything, illustrated here
(Laurie: What is soup to nuts?)
...
(Alex: Laurie, it's a four-word expression.)

FITNESS & EXERCISE $800: This workout regimen that has trademarked "sport of fitness" calls its gyms "boxes"

FITNESS & EXERCISE $1000: Wood you like to hold this abdominal exercise position for 4 hours & 26 mins. like Mao Weidong did in 2014?
(Alex: Sounds uncomfortable just saying it.)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Laurie: $3,800
Peyton: $3,600
Harris: $3,000

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Harris: $14,600
Laurie: $11,400
Peyton: $800

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
ALLITERATIVE AMERICANS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Three-quarters for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Harris: Wager $8,201 to cover Laurie, but no more than $12,999 so as not to fall behind Peyton's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $6,601.
Laurie: You ought to wager between $3,201 (venusian) and $5,000 (martian), thereby safely covering a $0 bet by Harris.
Peyton: Too bad for you, Peyton, your score is less than Harris's score minus Laurie's score. Unless they both commit an egregious wagering error, you've no hope of moving into first place. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
In 1932 he & several San Francisco colleagues formed Group f/64 to promote greater realism in their art

FINAL SCORES
Peyton: $800 - $799 = $1 (Who Is Jasper Johns) (3rd place)
Laurie: $11,400 - $4,900 = $6,500 (Who) (2nd place)
Harris: $14,600 + $8,400 = $23,000 (Who is Ansel Adams?) (New champion: $23,000)
(Alex: f/64 should have led you to photography.)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $8,200

F/64 finally clicked at about 28 seconds in, so I will assume I would have had enough time to write down Adams. Good clue.

Instaguess FJ based on the category and the time period. "F/64 should've led you to photography"...sure thing Alex.

My precall was "Abigail Adams" so I precalled the last name, but I also got the actual answer once the clue was revealed. We have a poster of a print of his (a moonrise over New Mexico) hanging up in the apartment.

I also said "soup to nuts" and lost points for this, but today was one of my highest Coryats since I've been keeping track of that.

Old champion and new champion were solid, congrats to the new guy.

Congrats to Harris on his win. I had 48 correct responses including these triple stumpers: a Christian, from soup to nuts, the plank, Aaron, Egypt, and Armageddon. I also got the missed Daily Doubles of Saint Bernard and tangerine, and I got FJ.

Naurae29 and I tried to precall the FJ response from just the category. She said Walt Whitman; I said Howard Hughes.

Got the f-stop reference about 15 seconds in, and the category did the rest for me.

The bikini clue reminded me of a classic joke from one of my favorite 'toons from childhood:

Would my response of "Megiddo" have been acceptable for "Armageddon"? I don't think so.

I remember "From soup to nuts" being a triple-stumper Toss-Up on Wheel a few years back. This was back on the old Sony boards, and two of the contestants posted there saying that they had never heard of it.

WLT "Treasury" at $200?

All but "fruit salad" in Edible.

Aaron was negbait for Baal IMO, while Maalox was extremely overvalued.

Can't believe I missed the Leia clue. Somehow I let my mind wander into the Alien franchise even though it clearly didn't fit. I think the "Xenon" category made me think Xenomorphs.

I usually do okay on chemical categories, but I went 0/5 in Xenon.

F/64 meant nothing to me. "Art" had me thinking, you know, actual ARTISTS, and coming up high and dry. As soon as Alex said "photography" I knew who they wanted.

The moment Alex said "photography" I got FJ -- much too late of course. For the first time (I think) I will have to click the Box of Shame on the weekly FJ poll. :cry:
Teems with quiet fun.

Mine was, jokingly, "Amy Adams." When the clue was revealed I did instantly get Ansel, though I did ponder Jasper Johns for a little and not surprised by the neg.

When Alex made his opening DJ! round remarks about a close game to the end I thought the game was going to turn into a runaway. Instead...I think I feel like listening to that vault scene from Die Hard.

My solve on the FJ! clue was in between instaget and Alex done reading. San Francisco was what I spotted in the clue first before the year, so I started to think about Beat guys before noticing I needed to set the time machine back a bit. Even with the F in caps I caught on to f/64 being photography so of course Ansel Adams was the guy to lock in thanks to the category eliminating any chance at detours.

Laurie has 9 players ahead of her on the TOC tote board, so it's wait and see if she makes the field. A victory probably would have wrapped up a spot no matter when the event is held.

Let's play the look-alike game for Harris. I'll go with David Foster.

One of the rare games where I wasn't actually bookkeeping. Probably did about average on Coryat, but got a rare 0/3 mark on DD, just like the contestants. In retrospect, I don't how I missed "Tangiers". Ugh.

Swept the Exercise and Fitness category, including 2 LT, although I would have a really hard time keeping myself from saying "what is CrossShit?" on the $800 clue, or even "What is a killer scam and a chiropractic's wet dream?"

I got "Orkney Islands" only because I spent a couple of hours feverishly refreshing the UK Referendum results yesterday, and there was a nice picture of all the UK regions and how they voted.

Despite living about 25 miles outside of San Francisco, I didn't get Ansel Adams until Alex mentioned "photography". My guess was George Gershwin. Pretty bad, I know, but at least he was alive and producing in 1931!

Congratulations to the new champion. He had some impressive moments, and unlike Laurie, was actively hunting for the DDs.
