CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Jocelyn Dorfman is from Fairfax, Virginia--a place with a great deal of history. And as a matter of fact, when you were younger you worked at a Colonial farm?

Jocelyn: I did. I got involved because my second-grade teacher, Claire Bonner, brought one of the piglets into class. Um, so after that I got involved with and was a volunteer--apprentice at the farm for about seven years.

Alex: Did you have to wear colonial-type costumes?

Jocelyn: I had to wear the full thing--all hand-sewn, um, authentic shoes as possible. Even in the cold, I had a wool cloak, um, and we tended a tobacco farm.

Alex: Good for you. That must have been a lot of fun.

Jocelyn: It was, thank you.




Alex: Okay, Dennis King is an attorney from Towson, Maryland, and a prankster.

Dennis: I am.

Alex: I would hope you're not a prankster in court.

Dennis: Uh, not so much in court, 'cause that could get you in trouble.

Alex: Yeah.

Dennis: But, uh, to anybody I work with, live with, know as a friend, um, objects tend to disappear right while I'm talking to you. And, uh, my favorite, though...

Alex: Let me stand further away.

Dennis: I was gonna say. I was gonna ask you if you had your watch. Uh, the, uh, best is when you have a hypochondriac, and you can convince them that they have very loathsome disease and have them call their doctor and set up an appointment.

[Laughter]

Alex: Okay.




Alex: Our Ph.D. candidate champion is Seth Wilson who is writing a dissertation about...

Seth: 18th-century actresses and ideas of celebrity in the 18th century.

Alex: Wait a minute. Well, Sarah Bernhardt is not in that group because she's much later.

Seth: Yes.

Alex: Who are some of the 18th-century actresses whose names we might recognize?

Seth: Uh--the, um... another Sarah. A woman named Sarah Siddons.

Alex: That name I remember.

Seth: Yes, and then one of the most fantastic names from theater history, Ann Bracegirdle.

Alex: Is there a lot of scandal involved in that era with actresses?

Seth: A tremendous amount, even if it wasn't true.

Alex: Oh, that's the best kind.

Seth: Of course.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Jocelyn found the Daily Double on the 18th clue. Seth had $4,200, Dennis had $1,200, and Jocelyn was at $2,000. Jocelyn made it a True Daily Double, wagering $2,000.

A CLOUDY CATEGORY $600: Here is the cloud-filled "Empire of Light" by this Belgian surrealist
(Jocelyn: Who is Rubens?)

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
THE PRIOR WORLD LEADER $1000: Before Angela Merkel (& we'll even give you his initials--G.S.)

A CLOUDY CATEGORY $1000: This 19th-century British artist was known for his cloud studies, as seen here

INVENTION & INNOVATION $600: Mixing slaked lime & volcanic ash, the Romans made use of this cement-based building material in monuments & roads

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND

Dennis: $3,000
Jocelyn: $1,000

What was that word in the $400 PAL box? Not one I've ever heard of.

For FJ, I was trying to think of some paper company. No guess.

Insta-Instaget FJ.

Alex was really hoping for a Cliff Clavin there apparently. "Boo hiss"ing a locked game?

I felt like the "pal" category was inverted in difficulty even though I swept it, with the Burt Reynolds category next to it for good measure.

Welcome to the ranks of the superchampions, Seth. There's still 3 or 4 champs I like better for the TOC, but that's 3 really impressive performances in a row and another lock.

I'll never be a clue writer. I wouldn't have given them Gerhard Schroeder's initials, and it would've been in the 400 box, tops. What do I know.

Super-instaget FJ. For some reason IKEA is almost always the first 'international business' that comes to mind, so I didn't even need to think about it.

Palliative. Palliative care means you're not trying to cure the patient, just trying to make him or her comfortable.

Very cool game. Congrats to Seth.
I really loved the Double Jeopardy board. Poetry (+ a bonus poetry clue in last letter - first letter) and Education --- superb categories.

And hats off to Dr. Jill Biden for spotlighting the 'best kept educational secret.' I attended my first two undergrad years at our local one and taught there later until my retirement in 2013.

MY OLD "PAL"S $200: Extreme paleness from sickness or fear

The correct response was pallor. My response was pallidness. Judges? Is my response even a real word?

Dennis was a remind-alike of Bob "Captain Kangaroo" Keeshan.

Credit to a certain Matthew Broderick movie for my getting NORAD.

During Seth's time between taping games he still has not grasped the concept of looking for that last DD to insure the runaway. He found the DD in THE SINGING "B" and then stayed in that category (Dennis was guilty as well) instead of going to LAST LETTER, FIRST LETTER that was guaranteed to have a DD.

As it turns out Seth found the last DD anyway. It was in the 1600 box with only the $2000 clue remaining. Seth led 25200 to 10600. If Dennis gets the $2000 clue that is 12600, so a max of 25200. Seth could put the game away as his $200 wager accomplished, but there was no lowball wager he could make to lock the match.

What Seth should have done earlier was bet more than $2000 in THE SINGING "B". He seems comfortable with pop culture type stuff and the letter hint begs for some extra oomph in the betting department.

The FJ! category had my FJ! streak (6 in a row) ending written all over it. The clue assured that prediction coming true. I got as close as paper when time ran out. From there I tried to picture the brand of paper in a ream I had sitting just above my eye level of my computer. I was thinking Hammerlich. It turned out to be Hammermill. And Hammermill is American. A solid miss all around.

When IKEA by Dennis was revealed my reaction was, "Ohhhhh" knowing that made a lot of sense and was very likely right.

Thank you to the bunker (I have all three bookmarked, so found it soon after the upload) for a pre-dinner viewing of J! which is far superior to the 10 p.m slot. Trump vs. Clinton or Falcons vs. Saints? Viewing choices, viewing choices. :)

I blurted out "Cannonball Run" for the Smokey and the Bandit clue.

This might be the type of mistake most likely to be made by people exactly my age, no older and no younger.

I was alive when those movies came out, but I was too young to see them, so I was vaguely aware of their existence, and I knew that they were both Burt Reynolds movies with large casts that involved vehicles of some kind traveling across the country.

People younger than me might not know either movie, and people older than me might be more likely to keep those two movies distinct in their heads, due to being old enough to pay a bit more attention.

A quick google search finds 'pallidness' in 3 separate dictionaries, defined similarly enough to 'pallor' that I'd say count it.

Easy get, but I remembered it as Stargate Command here. Completely forgot about WarGames.

I have never been in an IKEA store or seen any of their product. I knew they sold some type of furniture you assemble yourself and took a guess and got lucky.

I said pallid.

Were there really people last week saying Seth wasn't a good player on this board? He's looking confident, getting lots of hard questions, and a very tough out right now.

I got final, but I recently looked up TetraPak when I was trying to figure out how these plastic/cardboard containers could possibly be recyclable. Their web page had a statement about moving towards sustainable forestry, and the packages seem to be everywhere. I figured Jeopardy wouldn't ask the question (at least in that way) if TetraPak was the answer, and went for the more obvious Ikea.

I almost did an instacrash because I misread the FJ clue as "country" instead of "company." I reread it at the 15th second and got it right.

Agree 'pallidness' is acc. Ran "Pal' cat and the last > first letter cat. 43R, instaget FJ. Seth dominated these boards and is clearly becoming quite comfortable. Will be tough to unseat.

TS: Rene Magritte "Empire of Light" painting; Chancellor Schroeder; John Constable 'Clouds". I spent a lotta time looking at paint... :!: Also: Concrete > Rome; NO get on "Jasmine Revolution" and NHO "Salad days" learn something on J! every day! :) Hesitated on "Band Aid" thinking is it "Live Aid"? Drat it! Live Aid >1985 FOLLOWED Band Aid >1984, both conceived by Bob Geldorf as Ethiopian famine fundraisers. Tough stuff to keep straight! :twisted:

37/58 right.

Cloudy (1), World (4), Invent (3), Cosmetic (3), "Trebek's Archenemies" (5), Pals (3)
Landmark (4), Women (3), Poetry (3), Singing "B" (3), Education (3), Last, First Letter (2)

Lach Trash: Gerhard Schroeder, John Constable

Not instant, but Dad brought up furniture and IKEA was automatic after that.

Band Aid was a group. Live Aid was an event. Not tough to keep straight.

Especially when spotted the 'B'.

Coryat: $31,600
44 R/2 W
DD: 3/3
FJ: RTFQ
LT: Rene Magritte (DD), concrete

I yelled at my TV a lot when Seth stayed in The Singing "B" rather than going after that second DD. There's a lot to think about during a game of J!, but hunting down DD's is almost always Job One.

I made the same mistake but didn't catch it. I'll blame it on feeling sick and having had a very stressful day. It would've been nice not to do it on an FJ! that's likely to poll around 95%, though.

I also cost myself $2000 with my response of "Gerhard Schroeding." Dangit.

Palliative. Palliative care means you're not trying to cure the patient, just trying to make him or her comfortable.
Yep ... never heard of that word before.
I'm assuming you haven't been in a hospital anywhere near recently, or know people who work in one. (Or had elderly relatives placed in palliative care). Some combination of those got it for me.

"Pallid" here. Looks like I can count it!
MarkBarrett wrote:Dennis was a remind-alike of Bob "Captain Kangaroo" Keeshan.
He did remind me of someone, but I couldn't think of who. A distant part of me says that maybe there was someone like him / someone that was him at my audition. And if he wasn't from Maryland instead of the Midwest or Texas (where almost all my fellow auditioners were from) I'd think he was maybe from that group.
MarkBarrett wrote:When IKEA by Dennis was revealed my reaction was, "Ohhhhh" knowing that made a lot of sense and was very likely right.
Fortunately my "ohhhhhhh!" moment came ten seconds into the music. Don't know how I pulled that one off (and not 100% sure I would have under the lights).

Yeah, if it comes down to Seth vs. Dennis vs. Jocelyn against Trump vs. Clinton against Falcons vs. Saints, it's a no brainer. Watch Seth vs. Dennis vs. Jocelyn.
