CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Libby Hunt is a retired consultant from Texas who is related to the late husband of a dear friend of mine.

Libby: Yes.

Alex: You are related to Allen Ludden.

Libby: Yes.

Alex: And did you get to spend time with him?

Libby: Absolutely, yes. Uh, he was from my--my hometown, and, uh, absolutely, we spent time with him. And, of course, before Password, he did GE College Bowl on television and on radio, so I think of that as the thinking person's game show before Jeopardy!

Alex: Oh. Thank you for including us.

[Laughs]




Alex: Colby Taylor, assistant professor of psychology in Mississippi. You went to Italy to take a course that had nothing to do with psychology, but it sounds like a fun course.

Colby: You know, it could be related in some ways. When I was finishing up my undergraduate degree, I had an opportunity to go to Italy to take wine appreciation.

Alex: Ah!

Colby: It was at 9:30 in the morning. Um, it was very educational.

[Laughter]

Alex: Yeah. What did you need for a passing grade? "I chugged down three bottles."

Colby: Yeah. Three bottles would get you a solid A-minus.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Blair Moorhead is our champion. You're a social worker. But once, you wanted to do more than just social work. You thought of becoming a pastor, didn't you?

Blair: Yeah, actually, that's something I'm still considering. I'm in the ordination process. Um, I also went to seminary. I did seminary and social work at the same time, because I think, you know, human mental health as well as spirituality go so much together.

Alex: You bet.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Colby found the Daily Double on the 16th clue. Blair had $1,200, Colby had $5,200, and Libby was at $800. Colby wagered $3,000.

THE CIVIL WAR $1000: U.S. Grant's initials came to stand for this after giving extremely limited capitulation terms to Gen. Buckner

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
ENTERTAINMENT UNDER THE SEA $1000: SpongeBob SquarePants loves the TV show "The Adventures of Mermaid Man and" him

WHERE'S THAT OPERA HOUSE? $1000: Festspielhaus, in this double-talk town

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Colby: $11,600
Libby: $3,600
Blair: $2,600

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Colby: $19,800

Libby: $7,400

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
BEATLES SONGS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Crush for first place.
Colby: Wager $1,401 to cover Blair, but no more than $4,999 so as not to fall behind Libby's doubled score.
Blair: You have the hope of surpassing Colby if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $9,201 to force Colby to wager to win while also protecting your position from being usurped by Libby.
Libby: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. 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
Of the Beatles songs on which Ringo Starr sang lead, this one charted the highest, reaching No. 2

FINAL SCORES
Libby: $7,400 - $7,398 = $2 (What is Get Back?) (3rd place)
Blair: $10,600 + $4,201 = $14,801 (What is Yellow Submarine?) (2nd place)
Colby: $19,800 - $1,401 = $18,399 (What is Hey Jude?) (New champion: $18,399)

Not a prayer. I have only the slightest clue of which Beatle sang which song. I couldn't tell you either of the ones Ringo sang.

Shockingly bad wager. :shock:

I considered Octopus's Garden, Act Naturally, and A Little Help from my Friends, but Yellow Submarine felt right to me, though I wouldn't say I was 100% sure.

Lazarus comes up enough that I got that DD in a category I was not strong at.

Another successful "I'm going to wager to lose!" plan. Was there any reasonable scenario where Blair could win with that wager?

And here I thought the only thing to annoy me about this game would be wtf Shawshank and Crouching Tiger were doing in the bottom two boxes of Role Call. At least we know for sure that nope, yesterday wasn't a fluke, she simply doesn't know how to wager. Yesterday she focused on the leader and forgot about covering third, today she covered third, and forgot all about going for the win. Yikes.

Beatles songs? Double yikes. Oh, Ringo sang lead on some of them? That's nice. Which one hit #2? You must be joking.

Coryat: $26,000
40 R/2 W
DD: 2/3
FJ: :evil:
LT: Baden-Baden, spacewalker, Emma Lazarus (DD)

50/50/friggin' 90. I was between "With A Little Help From My Friends" and "Yellow Submarine." I thought of the former as the more popular song, but I really wish I had listened that voice in the back of my head saying, you know, that sure is a lot to write down in 30 seconds.

The new champ seems very formidable, but he wouldn't be the new champ if the old one had even the slightest idea of how to wager. She got away with it once, but not twice.
Sprinkles are for winners.

Same here. I knew it wasn't Hey Jude since it came up yesterday and I think it was Paul.

I guess the cluewriters expected a different outcome last night with the rolltide.com clue. (sigh).

Not a good wager.

Instaget FJ, then I talked myself out of it. "Wasn't it on that 1 album? That would mean Ringo didn't sing it... Guess it must be Octopus's Garden."

Blair knew how to make the shutout bet against Libby. Unfortunately, she didn't consider what the outcome would be if Colby also knew how to make a shutout bet. Congrats to the new champ.

ObPeeve: If you don't know the grammar of 15th/16th century English, please don't try to write in it. You can't just toss in a thee or a thou and tack an -eth or an -est on the end of a verb or two and have it come out right. You sound like an idiot.

Had it between Octopus's Garden and the correct response. Chose the latter but too late.


Interesting that both incorrect guesses were Paul songs.

On The Beatles (a.k.a. the White Album), Ringo sings on Don't Pass Me By (also wrote) and the closing Goodnight (written by John, but intended for Ringo's voice).

If Colby goes full Martian from the crush and then Blair wins the tiebreaker in which she's a 2-to-1 underdog?

If you know enough Beatles to get that question right, you shouldn't be playing to lose.

Instagot Yellow Submarine. I could have got it if they had asked for the B-side of that single with just the information provided.

The Beatles tried to give Ringo at least one lead vocal track on every Beatle album. I think the only other American single he sang lead on the A-side was Matchbox.

Would this type of question be acceptable for any other band?

This is the highest charting "Who" song that John Entwistle provided vocals for?
This is the highest charting "U2" song that The Edge provided vocals for?
This is the highest charting "Simon and Garfunkel" song that Garkfunkel provided vocals for?
