It was *Miss Scarlett in the studio with the buzzer as Austin was Mr. Boddy.

Austin was given some bonus money with the whale reversal happening after his DD miss. If the judges had handled matters sooners Austin would have been at zero to start the second segment instead of 1200.

*Scarlett Sims could be a Miss or Ms. and Miss Scarlet in the board game Clue is one T.

Scarlett Sims from Tennessee took names and numbers in the Dolly Parton category.

Austin's opening looked like this thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPpQoCDS_tw

For the FJ! round let's just say I've seen that movie more than once so not going to miss it.

Wow, nice job, Scarlett, and of course a very impressive run for Austin.

My mom is always daydreaming about a category on Dolly. I'll have to tell her about this, if she hasn't seen it already!

Hey Scarlett here, just signed up for the boards to post in this topic.

Where on earth does it air early enough for there to already be results up?

The earliest airing in in Montgomery, AL, which is at 9:30 AM.

Congrats on your victory. Looking forward to seeing it myself tonight (I don't care about being spoiled, so I just venture in to any and all threads :) ).

Ok I noticed that when looking up for a friend in Montgomery where he could watch it, but I thought it might be the previous day's episode because that's so early.

Here's a comprehensive list of all 208 stations that air Jeopardy!, compiled from actual TV schedules.

Congratulations, Scarlett! Apart from taking down an ultra-champ, $21,200 without the benefit of a Daily Double is an impressive feat. As it happens, Nancy Zerg, Victoria Groce, Diana Peloquin, Brian Loughnane, Michael Baker, and Margie Eulner Ott were all one and done... I like your chances to accomplish something unique in the show's history tomorrow!

Congrats Sims. That high five at the end is great. Feel free to add the story. Dolly Parton is tailor-made for you.

Good comeback by Austin but the negs towards the end were costly. I'm going to take the field over Austin in TOC.

Nice job, Scarlett! (it's on at 4:30 here.) Wish I'd done as well on Dolly Parton at home as you did up there.

I had to feel for Sean, living one of our most common Jeopardy fears: getting repeatedly and visually buzzer-beaten (though couldn't tell if it was from being too early or too late.)

After a certain category earlier this week, I thought it was funny that we had a contestant from Silver Spring.

Congrats to Scarlett, who played very well and took away Austin's usual buzzer dominance. $21,200 is an impressive Coryat for a first game.

Austin could have won this game but his perennial inabillity to stay clam, combined with not going completely all-in on his DJ DD's, did him in (I think -- I'll have to run the numbers later). And this time when he again got an easy FJ right (finishing an amazing 12 of 13 on FJ's), he didn't have the sole solve he needed. Still, it was an outstanding and memorable run and we'll see him again next month and probably in a future super-tournament.

I hope he worked on FJ wagering strategy before taping the TOC.

So in his last 2 games, Austin put up Coryats of $12,000 and today's $11,000. Which Austin will show up at the TOC -- that one, or the one who won $69,000 in one game and had a Coryat of $24,200 as recently as Tuesday? I'll still have him as a gold, but the tournament seems very wide-open now.

It's also a little disappointing that by losing today, Austin is forever frozen at $612 behind Matt Jackson for 5th place in all-time regular-play earnings and also missed a chance to pass Julia Collins and David Madden for 2nd all time.

ETA: It's also disappointing to me that Tim Kutz is now officially out of the TOC.

I was fully expecting that $1200 from the reversal to be the difference in the game.

I'm happy it wasn't.

Scarlett: what a game.

This game is a loss for the Weak Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "big." --Bob

Our long national nightmare is over. The champ was on the defensive for nearly the whole game. Nevertheless, he demonstrated his knack for finding DDs. When I saw how easy FJ was, I suspected Scarlet would win.
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.

Gotta admit, I have never heard of J.G. Ballard or (after looking them up) any of his books.
