CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Valerie Connors is a stay-at-home mom who is also a wedding coordinator in a specialized area. Tell me about it.

Valerie: Yes. I coordinate weddings, along with my sister, on board cruise ships that leave from the port of Baltimore.

Alex: Now, is that a lucrative business? I mean, are there a lot of weddings that are planned for cruise ships?

Valerie: There are some. I think a lot of people just don't know that you can do it.

Alex: Ah, all right. Well, great.




Alex: Joe Di Dio is from Queens. He's a stay-at-home dad who's also an engineer specializing, also, in a particular area--has to do with light.

Joe: That's right. In daylight, natural light. So I work with architects and lighting designers, and I help them optimize their designs, so we can have the most natural light for the occupants and the residents of the space.

Alex: Are we talking about big bay windows and skylights, things like that?

Joe: All that, including shading as well as preventing glare and everything along those lines, yeah.

Alex: Okay, great.




Alex: Lisa Schlitt is a microbiologist. She is our champion, and she got into Jeopardy! because of her dad, right?

Lisa: Yeah, my dad actually used to be really into Jeopardy! He still kinda is, actually, and we used to watch it together. And one of his favorite things is like, you know, with the Daily Double or Final Jeopardy!, is "Bet the ranch! Bet the ranch!" for betting everything. And I guess that advice helped last time.

[Laughter]

Alex: He thinks big.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Valerie found the Daily Double on the 24th clue. Lisa had $5,200, Joe had $1,200, and Valerie was at $2,400. Valerie wagered $2,000.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
NOVEL VOCABULARY $600: In "An American Tragedy", this hyphenated adjective refers to lovers of unequal rank, not to a southpaw
(Lisa: What is a lefty?)

7 LETTERS, ONLY ONE VOWEL $200: Itch relief

7 LETTERS, ONLY ONE VOWEL $400: A common nickname for a tall person

YES, MR. MOVIE PRESIDENT $400: Who ya gonna call to play FDR in "Hyde Park on Hudson"? Him
(Alex: Why, you're gonna call [*]. One of the Ghostbusters.)

ROUTE '60-SOMETHING $1000: Also a song from The Who, this company took 1960s longhairs down the "hippie trail" from Europe to India

I get new episodes Monday - Friday. What happened on Sunday?

********
If viewers automatically root for the stay-at-home parent contestants then today was a not a good episode. On the flip side of the coin it was Lisa handling two birds with one stone.

Contestants need to brush up on their FDR? Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hundson) was a stumper as well as Campobello. Joe getting busted for Frederic"town" was a no doubter as I heard it immediately.

Prison reform colony founder = James Oglethorpe. Thank you, Mr. (11th grade U.S. history) Lewbin. Joe and Valerie did not know it, so the clue opens up to a bunch of guesses with Penn and Raleigh seeming reasonable and I could imagine someone else going anywhere from Roger Williams to Lord Baltimore.

A well done runaway for Lisa and she was not in position to "bet the ranch" as she did on Friday.

Nice win by Lisa, too bad she didn't take her father's advice on FJ. ;)

I had FJ written down before the music started, a little surprised it was only 1/3. A good day for me on DDs as I swept them.

Oglethorpe is one of those names that either sticks with you from learning American history in middle or high school - or it doesn't. I'm guessing it should get about 75% in the poll, notwithstanding only one contestant getting it right. I wonder if Joe or Valerie have ever visited Savannah?

What took that reversal on Fredericton so long? I clearly heard him say Frederictown. Why didn't AT or any of the people whose job it is to listen to what contestants say?

No hope for me in FJ. I said Roger Williams.

I haven't had much sleep this month because I work a ridiculous number of hours when the climate is tolerable since my immune system shuts down in the summer. I thought that today was Tuesday. My bad.

Oglethorpe rings a bell, but I had no shot at this one - also said Penn.

Yeah, Williams and Penn were the two I thought of. I went with the latter because the clue mentioned prisons and no one ever talks about doing a year in the Williams.

I played FJ off website and misread the clue as "idea for founding America In 1732", conveniently missing the crucial "colony" part. So, I got nowhere from there..

It seemed like Jim played well, but locked out... Strange. Missed DD didn't help him either.

When New Brunswick category came up, I was desperately trying to remember the capital. Then they practically give it away...I'm happy about that today. Yeah, I expected the neg too.

I feel like Marmaduke came up recently and both times I negged on Clifford the Big Red Dog.

TS: left-handed, scratch, Bill Murray

I could only come up with beanpole for tall person; at 6'2, I've been called stretch but wasn't getting there in a million years

I made a point of studying the SI units recently but P was a stand and stare.

1/3 in DD (liquid). Had Athens but couldn't get to Rome as the other "pole of classical civilization" (NHO that phrase). Olympic host cities not quite memorized yet

No get on Oglethorpe. 1732 told me it wasn't PA or RI and the clock just ran out on me. I've heard the name, but it's not anything I've ever learned or read about. I've been watching the HBO miniseries John Adams and I'd have to go back, but I don''t think he's made an appearance yet.

Is a lure the same as a fly?

missed opportunity in 2 "U" = incubus

"Left-handed" from "Lefty" was a jump that I couldn't make either. And I'm left-handed.

I ran Ice Cream and Comic Strip Canines.

Oddly, I got everything but the first box in Cones. Just didn't look like a snail to me.

Given how badly those first two "7 letters, one vowel" clues went over, I don't mind the other three being left behind.

The name Oglethorpe definitely passes my Hawley-Smoot test, so I would know if I had ever encountered it before in anything other than Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah.

How often are all three daily doubles in the second row? Feels like it's somewhat uncommon for them to be that high up--not like top row rare, but still not all that common--but all three were there today.
