Jennifer: $1,200

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Afam Onyema co-founded a foundation which does some very important work in a very dangerous country, Nigeria.

Afam: Yes, yes. I founded the GEANCO Foundation with my family, and we do health and educational work in Nigeria. And in particular, for the past ten years, we've brought American surgeons over to do hip and knee replacements for Nigerians in need. So, to see Nigerians who have been in pain for decades take their first pain-free steps is one of the greatest joys in my life.

[Applause]

Alex: Okay. Good for you.




Alex: Jennifer Lloyd is a baker from Indiana who flunked a driver's test.

Jennifer: That's right, Alex.

Alex: Now, that's happened to a lot of people, but not as quickly as you did.

Jennifer: It did. The car was parallel-parked when the officer got in to give me the test, and he said, "Pull out whenever you're ready." And I pulled right in to the car in front of me. And he was very angry.

Alex: Because it was his car?

Jennifer: Yes!

Alex: Really?

[Laughter]

Jennifer: It was his car.

[Laughter]

Alex: So, how long before you came back and passed the test?

Jennifer: About 5 years later in a different state.

[Laughter]

Alex: Okay. All right. Good for you.




Alex: Harris Stutman is from southern California. And you took up running at age 55?

Harris: 55.

Alex: Yeah. Are we talking about long-distance running?

Harris: I really don't have enough time to do marathon kind of training, where you have to go for the hours, so I limit myself to 5K's and 10K's. I think 6 miles is enough for anybody my age.

Alex: Are you the only one in your family who's into running?

Harris: My son and daughter are also runners. I'm not sure they're quite as dedicated as me, but yes.

Alex: Okay.

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Afam: $8,200
Jennifer: $5,600
Harris: $3,400

AMERICAN INVENTORS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Crush for first place.
Harris: Wager $4,401 to cover Jennifer.
Jennifer: You have the hope of surpassing Harris if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $10,801 to force Harris to wager to win while also protecting your position from being usurped by Afam.
Afam: Your only hope of a win is that you're the only one to give a correct response, so bet $11,198 or so, leaving a few bucks behind in case someone wagers it all.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
Before his death in 1932, he donated over $100 million, including $50 million to the University of Rochester

Afam: $11,200 - $10,000 = $1,200 (Who was Carnegie) (2nd place)
Jennifer: $11,600 - $11,300 = $300 (Who is Mayo?) (3rd place)
Harris: $18,800 + $5,000 = $23,800 (Who is Eastman?) (39701-day champion: $23,800)

Another day, another photography-related FJ where I WAG the right answer without having heard of the intended TOM. Whatever, I'll take it.

for this 1970 graduate of the university of rochester, final jeopardy was as much an instaget as i have ever seen.

one note, alex twice pronounced the name of the city as ra-chest-er, with equal accents on the first two syllables. however. during orientation week, all freshmen at the school are taught that "there is no chest in rochester," and that the name of the city is ra' - chis - ter.

Congrats to Harris on his third win. I had 53 correct responses including these triple stumpers: East Berlin, articulated, Gibbon, Chad, Athens, and Rachel Ward. I also got FJ.

Can we poll "I didn't know which Rochester is the one with the University in it, so that really wasn't much of a $^$^)^#@! clue, Alex"?

Feel free to maybe edit the wording a little. :p

It's right there: Rochester.

Seriously though, I've heard Rochester natives pronounce it that way, but maybe they've just tired of having people correct them.

I'm pretty sure he did.

As a side not, if you answered "MMA fighter" for Jason Day (like I did), you would also be correct: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Day_(fighter)

Both the New York and Minnesota Rochesters have universities. Mayo was a good guess, but he was a doctor, not an inventor.

Although I ran, or almost ran, the 30 years in jail category, I never did figure out what the category meant.

Anybody?

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

One was articulated buses, which have been around since the 1920's and very common since the 1960's.

Rochester = Kodak. Eastman Kodak. Assumes a certain age on the part of the players (my 26-year olds only very dimly remember film).

Since it's up on the archive (that was fast...), the fifth clue was East Berlin, which no longer exists. Given the theme of the rest of the category...no idea what that bus clue was doing there.

Still had photography on the brain after Friday's FJ, I guess. Especially after checking the poll and seeing that, apparently, almost everyone else knew what an f-stop was except me :oops: The date also excluded a bunch of plausible guesses. It was a 0% confidence WAG, fwiw, since the Rochester connection meant nothing at the time.

I just went through a game on J-archive the other day where Rochester was a TOM for Eastman (or maybe it was vice versa). I had never heard the connection before and couldn't recall it in time today. Checking the archive now it looks like this one's pretty popular.

I also WAGed Eastman. Maybe the Rochester link was buried somewhere deep in my memory, but Ford and Edison had already come up this game (and were famously associated with other places), and I wasn't sure they'd consider Tesla American or that he ever had that much money. Eastman was just the only other American inventor I could think of.

I focused on the "died in 1932" which made me think of Thomas Edison, and could not come up with anything better in the remaining seconds. Turns out he died in October, 1931 so at least I was close there.
