Interesting and fun, though a bit of a challenge to figure out what to drop. Based on history, I'm going to sheep on at least three or four questions, so I tried to figure out which of my sheeps would cost the most points and drop that one. I'm guaranteed to be wrong, of course.

Almost went with a fictional character for #10, but I figured the phrase "historical figure" would have made it an automatic miss.

Fun way to spend a few minutes -- thanks much to Morbeedo!
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I'm fully aware that my choice for #10 may be borderline, but I'll take my chances.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Too bad you didn't miss with "New South Wales" -- could have had an accidental correct answer.

Hope the job interview went well -- good luck on getting the new position!

I'm always amused at how many times the response I look at and say "Well everybody knows that one so surely I shouldn't pick it" ends up being someone else's singleton or isn't even used at all, because everybody second-guessed it the same way. It's what makes the strategy of TD so maddening to nail down.

Ooh I lost first place on that sheep of Olivier. I even thought about changing my answer after Olivier in Hamlet came up on the show last week but I didn't.
My philosophy: We watch for the game. Players who get in the way of the game intrude, whether they're arrogant or adlib or cackle or fidget or make noise or are rude to AT. We want those who just play the game and don't make it about themselves to win.

My strategizing in these TDs begins to sound like Vizzini trying to reason out which goblet has the iocane powder..

I'm pretty sure that's what's going to happen with this next question.
