CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Brennan Summer, the first player we introduced, is from Grand Rapids, Michigan. You're a food truck owner...

Brennan: Correct.

Alex: Who once conducted the Mormon Tabernacle Choir?

Brennan: That's right, Alex. When I was living in Minneapolis, they had a contest when the choir came to town.

Alex: Ah.

Brennan: Sponsored by a radio station, asking why you would make the ideal guest conductor in 350 characters or less.

Alex: And to cut it very short, what was your response?

Brennan: When my parents were moving from California to Michigan, they stopped in Salt Lake City to see the choir, and I was short of two years old and cried through the entire concert. So my dad missed it.

Alex: That's a good reason. I'd have used you as a conductor also.




Alex: Now, Craig Tollin is a professor from Roanoke, Virginia who keeps cockroaches in his office. What is all that about?

Craig: More their office than my office at this point. Well, they're about that big [indicates with index and thumb].

Alex: That big? Hello.

Craig: That big. Big cockroaches. And my students do experiments on them in the spring semester, so I have to husband cockroaches all the time.

Alex: What kind of experiments are we talking about here?

Craig: So...

Alex: Are you being mean to cockroaches? They've been around for millions of years, you know.

Craig: A little. Yes, we are being a little mean to them.

Alex: Okay. I understand.




Alex: Bryce Johnson is our champion. He's from Illinois. He enjoys playing the piano, but especially when he's doing covers of which great popular singer's songs?

Bryce: Well, Britney Spears.

Alex: Of course.

Bryce: Yeah, so I love playing piano for people, and I've played it since I was about five years old. But when you play Mozart or Chopin, you sort of get a response like, "Oh, that was nice," like, "I enjoyed that." But when you play Britney Spears, people get into it, right. "Toxic" is one of the best pop songs of all time.

Alex: Especially with the costumes you wear.

Bryce: Yes. Have you seen those?

Alex: But we won't talk about that right now.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
IT WAS SO COLD... $200: Hitchhikers were holding up photos of this digit
(Alex: You don't like our writers' sense of humor?)

The writers won the STEINBECK category with 2 for the players and 3 in the TS column. I got the first 4 and clammed on the coin toss of what was left for the bottom box figuring it had to be either Row or Flat.

Brennan got EXILED! For $800 and switched to CAMP DAVID $800. Where was DD3? EXILED! For $1200. One of those things Brennan may be looking back at if he knew the Hobbes work.

Bryce missing the FJ! clue is something I can understand as I initially had a wrong turn as well. The clue had Akron and I processed it as Dayton. Thinking Wright Bros. and some kind of anniversary thing I wrote “biplane.” That was crossed out soon after when I got my Ohio cities straight and knew where to go for an easy switch.

Bryce’s error could happen to anyone on stage with the obvious escaping while the music plays and the time counts down. This week has shown more than once how TOC potential contestants can fall far short of the needed victory totals.

But Bryce was on the right track on FJ, right? He just got off the train a station early.

I thought The Winter of Our Discontent was also possible, based on knowing nothing about the novel. I wouldn't have rung in on the clue unless I was desperate to avoid getting locked out or something. I was disappointed not to run the category.

What was the clue about losing the head? The one where they were looking for 'capital' (at least that's what it sounded like). If that was the word, I'm not familiar with that definition.

I'm no wagering savant but I thought that a poor FJ bet by Craig. He was apparently trying to protect against a double by Brennan, but since if he misses the answer he drops to third he might as well have bet $5401 to have a shot at winning if Bryce misses or bet $0.

ALL "CAP"S $1200: Adjective meaning involving the loss of the head

Decapitate & decapitated were the incorrect responses. Alex said "capital" was the adjective.

I took a spin on Google and it looks like something Latin about caput.

The Wingfoot generation of Goodyear Blimps are actually semi-rigid, and thus not truly blimps at all. Count it.

As in "a capital offense," I guess. I'm calling bogus. That may have been the original meaning, but no one uses it that way now. Meanwhile, "decapitated" can function as an adjective--e.g. "the decapitated corpse"--and should have been accepted.

It was poor strategy decision but not an entirely poor bet. You are correct he would be wise to wager enough to force the leader to get it correct. He could have bet up to $5599 in anticipation of a 199-200 wager by Brennan.

While "decapitated" is certainly classifiable as an adjective, IIRC Alex gave a specific instruction at the start of the round that all responses would begin with (not merely include) "CAP". So the adjectival sense of "capital" (i.e. "…punishment", beheading) is the sole solution.

I think I can safely call myself a wagering savant and I think Craig's bet was perfectly cromulent.

YDIRC, so "decapitated" is inadmissible. However unsatisfying the desired response was, it did fulfill the stipulation of the category.

Monte Cristo was my only miss in "M"mmmm.

Grand Cayman = Caribbean was new to me.

Ran the "Cold" category and Eponymous Animals. "Anubis" was overvalued at $2,000.

So with no other TOM, I'm supposed to know that Camp David was named for Eisenhower's son?

My mom is a huge Steinbeck fan, but I didn't recognize the bottom 2 titles.

I joined the contestants in trying to turn "decapitate" into an adjective with no success. "Capital" having the same root never crossed my mind.

Why should I know where Dante was exiled from? That seemed obscure for the top box.

Lach Trash: Thumb, "East of Eden"

Yet another FJ! that's a billion miles over my head. Can they make this crap any goddamn harder?! What kind of insane leap of logic made this 2/3?!?
