CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Recently, I read an article about young entrepreneurs in California, people who want to start their own businesses. Now, Julia Lee, you're a pharmacy student and yet, you would like to start your own business in something that has nothing to do with pharmacy. What?

Julia: So I've been seeing a lot of food trucks around lately.

Alex: Mm-hmm.

Julia: And so I thought, what's a food I really like? If I wanted to make a food truck, what would I make it out of? I decided I would do dumplings, because you can make a lot of them at once, and then I can call it the Dump Truck.

[Laughter]

Alex: I'll invest money with you.

Julia: [Laughs] Thank you.




Alex: Meghan Winch, theater artist from Philadelphia. Middle name--Dorence.

Meghan: It is.

Alex: Unusual name.

Meghan: It is. My parents made it up.

Alex: Oh.

Meghan: So my grandmothers' names are Dorothy--and it's her birthday today. Uh, happy birthday--uh, and Florence. So my parents put it together to make "Dorence". And whenever I would come home and complain to my parents about, "Why couldn't it be Jane or Ann?" They would say, "It could've been Florothy, Meghan."

[Laughter]

Alex: I like your parents.




Alex: All right, Ken Hirsh is our champion. He's from Milford, Ohio. And while working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency, you helped pass legislation that I'm very much in favor of because it helps protect one of my favorite animals.

Ken: Actually, under the Endangered Species Act, I wrote the--or I was the primary author of the regulations that created low speed, or what we call "no wake zones" in Florida, to help avoid manatee-boat collisions, to protect the manatee.

Alex: And that still happens...

Ken: Yes.

Alex: ...'cause people just don't seem to care. They think the manatee is such a beautiful, gentle creature, and it is, but they don't realize that they're just under the surface. And if you're going by at 30 miles an hour, your prop can do a lot of damage.

Ken: That's right.

Alex: Well, good for you.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
STUFF ABOUT STATES $1000: The words "Battle Born" appear on the flag of this state that entered the Union during the Civil War
(Ken: What is West Virginia?)

GARDEN PARTY $400: A symbol of friendship between the U.S. & Canada, the International Peace Garden is on the border of N.D. & this province

FORE! $600: A golfer marks a scorecard with 2 numbers per hole if he has one of these, such as 20

FORE! $800: This biennial cup has pitted Europe's top golfers against America's best since 1927

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Julia: $5,600
Meghan: $4,000
Ken: $3,900

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Julia: $13,200
Ken: $9,900
Meghan: $8,800

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
SHAKESPEARE

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Three-quarters (exactly) for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Julia: Wager $6,600. If Ken bets to tie your $0 bet with a wager of $3,300, Ken would fall to $6,600 on a miss, and would beat you out by a dollar if you were to bet to cover and were also stumped.
Ken: If Meghan had less than two-thirds your score, your optimum wager would be $3,300, but you can't let Meghan surpass you. Wager $7,701. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $7,700 (to shut out Meghan) or less than $3,300 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Meghan). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Julia.
Meghan: You do have some slim hope of taking 1st place, and it's most likely to happen in the event that you're the only one to respond correctly to Final. Wager between $1,101 and $8,799.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
These 2 title characters who have the same pair of initials both die by stabbing

FINAL SCORES
Meghan: $8,800 - $8,800 = $0 (Who are J Romeo+ Juliet) (3rd place)
Ken: $9,900 - $7,701 = $2,199 (Who are Lady Mab& an?) (2nd place)
Julia: $13,200 - $6,601 = $6,599 (Who are Hamlet & Horatio?) (New champion: $6,599)
(Alex: There is a male and a female. If you didn't get the male first, this was going to bring you a lot of grief.)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $10,400

I went to high school with Meghan (she was a senior when I was a freshman), so retroactive good luck if she's reading this. As far as I know, no one else from Monsignor Donovan Donovan Catholic has been on the show.

I got this but I agree with Alex it was tough. I read R&J in high school so I knew how she died. But if you haven't (or it has been a long time), you may not know she stabbed herself or know her last name.

I guess Meghan's wager was appropriate since FJ was about someone who committed suicide.

Watching Hillary press conference instead of Jeopardy :cry:

Got to Julius Caesar instantly and was trying to run through "C" last names which didn't get me to Juliet in time. I thought about "Jesus Christ" for a second, but....yeah....

FJ took damn near the entire 30 seconds. Got stuck on Julius Caesar, then with a few seconds left kinda mumbled Juliet under my breath as the only other 'J' character I could remember...oh wait, yeah, Capulet. Whew.

Missed half of the J! round thanks to asshole candidate #1's presser. Can't wait for this godforsaken election to end.

Also, grumble grumble wagering argh glargh I've given up expecting better.

Good for the new champ not biting that ever-so-tempting gust negbait for gale. I bit hard, and wound up looking up the scale during the commercial break to see, sure enough, "gust" isn't mentioned anywhere on it.

Good thing my knowledge of Shakespeare is somewhat limited, I got Julius Caeser and Juliet Capulet pretty quickly.

WLT China, lightning bolt, or Gauguin in the top box?

I got cut in at the Peace Garden clue for a special report, and they came back just before DJ! Anyone got the missing clues?

NHO James Brolin, Josh Duhamel, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Dax Shepard.

4/5 in Rhyme Hole. Clammed on parole since I didn't know it could be a verb too.

Sure, they don't BMS Kit Carson this time, but they did when he was in the $200 box last time.

Stabbing... Julius Caesar. J. C. Any other J. C.'s? I spun my wheels for two minutes straight and nothing came. Even when he said one male, one female, I was completely blank: what the hell females are famous in Shakespeare titles? I think part of it was that I was expecting it to be a title character whose name was by itself (e.g. Titus Andronicus), not one half of a title pair.

Usually, its second place that does this but

Now it's happened two games in a row from third. I wonder if PJ was watching from the audience and maybe realized he got away with a foolish wager in his game...


I don't know which was more surprising, 'Lightning Bolt' being a TS, or Meghan rebounding with another wrong answer after Ken.

I played FJ off website and I eventually got it. Although I never write my responses, I thought that writing both names will take a long time. I scribbled those names as quickly as possible and it took between 9-10 seconds. Would they just accept JC?
Although I liked the clue, given 30secs this one is too cute from the writers.

Liked dump truck, trademark it champ.

No way.
I've been thinking lately that they should use keyboards for the FJ answers, rather than handwriting. It's particularly relevant when the answers are long, as with this one, but it'd also be much clearer for AT to read. And in my case, my fine motor control goes to hell in any stressful situation, which makes me worry that if I ever do get on the show, I won't be able to even write my name legibly, much less an FJ response.

35 right.

Mrs. (2), Legal (2), History (4), Weather (3), Hole (1), Artist (2)

Lach Trash: Manitoba, Ryder Cup, fronts, Sir Walter Raleigh

I got to Julius Caesar, but not Juliet; I knew that she stabbed herself and that her last name was Capulet, but I threw myself off by thinking that both initials had to be in the title of the play.

What xxaaaxx said. Thanks to Andy for posting the preempted clues.
I got spoiled (or rather, spoiled myself) on FJ and there was no way I could've solved this in 30 seconds. As an LL question, maybe. I came up with "Romeo Montague and Richard M-something."
Kind of an average game with less negging than usual. Congrats to Meghan for going from $0 to the lead at one point.
