CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Our two gentlemen challengers on the program today have both spent time studying in Europe. Dominck Fiorentino, you were in France?

Dominick: Yes, I was in Nant, France. I did a homestay there, so I stayed with a family and they cooked dinner for me every night. And my host mom actually gave me a wonderful gift. Every night, whatever dinner she made, she wrote the recipe in a little notebook and then gave it to me at the end of the trip.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Andrews Landsman, actor and writer from Sherman Oaks. With you, it was not France, it was...

Andrews: Czechoslovakia, Prague.

Alex: Ah. And what was that experience like?

Andrews: Some of the best months of my life. Most beautiful city I've been to, outside of my hometown of New York, of course. And I studied drama with a teacher as a player would have done in a cafe drinking slivovitz and...

Alex: Ah. Okay, good for you.




Alex: Kristin Robbins is an attorney and our champion. Has a love of movies, and in particular, what?

Kristin: Really love '80s horror movies.

Alex: Which would be what? Christopher Lee and all the Dracula things? Or is that too late?

Kristin: That's a little early.

Alex: It is?

Kristin: Things like Friday the 13th, all of the old classics. Nightmare on Elm Street, that kind of thing.

Alex: The more blood, the more gore, the better you like it?

Kristin: Kind of.

Alex: Good enough for me.

Andrews negged himself out of the match to waste his chance to win on the sole solve of the FJ! clue. The guess of Lindbergh for the still living famous pilot for minus 1200 and plus 1200 to Kristin on the rebound may be one of several sore spots in the game for Andrews to revisit. The all-in loss on DD2 cost Andrews the chance to win as well.

When I saw the FJ! category I used the break to make sure I knew the countries and to know the neighbors in case it was one of those border type clues. The capital cities were also in my back pocket if needed although silly as it is I ruled out Costa Rica because of the earlier Sharks clue.

The volcano names meant nothing to me so I used the latter part of the clue to match body of water & country name. Done, as even I can handle that one.

2-week break for seeing Kristin go for the threepeat and instead it’s younger folks on Monday. I should use the weekend to study up on music in the 2010s and all those Netflix/Hulu shows I’ve never seen. It’s below my dignity to bother with the text slang abbreviations and acronyms. We can look forward to 61 clues a game x 5.

Probably should have been negged for his pronunciation of "nebulae". He made it sound singular.

Missed FJ, going with Gulf of Honduras.

Why couldn't I have been up there to play this board? After the hard one last night this one was right up my alley. I am sad though that the pop music category had unrevealed clues.

I got FJ, but was not completely confident on it.

Shot First was ridiculously YEKIOYD. NHO any of those films in the top box that I recall.

Balboa Park = zoo was very obscure. Any way I was supposed to know that?

Billboard Hits and Unusual Animals gave me more hope in DJ! but I still couldn't hack it. Didn't realize Norah Jones had any hits at all, and NHO loris.

Lach Trash: Reynard the fox, Emily Dickinson

Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama... YET AGAIN I pull every country in Central America but the right one.

When the category was revealed, I was expecting it to be a multiple choice; name one out of three songs. It turned out to be just an identify the group from the song. Not as fun. Then all the songs were gen X or newer so I wasn't going to get anywhere with that.

When was the last game to have all three final wagers less than $1000? Is there a way to determine if the total amount wagered ($1,072) is lower than any previous lowest amount?

I think this is a first for me, for regular competition. Two straight 5 for 5 weeks! I'll have to check the FJ from 2 weeks ago to see if I have an 11 game streak going.

I did briefly consider Panama Canal (what was I thinking) and then Gulf of Mexico just to have something, then just ran through the 6 CA countries in my head and figured out the right one.

ETA: Nope, just a 10 game streak.

This past March 2, the largest FJ wager was $850. Among Archived games, the lowest total amount wagered in a three-person Final Jeopardy was $80, on December 19, 2007 (like tonight, it was a double lock game). The lowest total in a game with all three players in contention was $1,400, on March 5, 2008.

another win from fourth podium:
Stoics DD, comebacker, Reynard, Emily Dickenson (this is poetry 101, no way this should be a TS), Lord Byron which they just had a couple weeks ago , Sudan Plan DD, Rudolph Valentino, Dusenberg for 9200 trash.
Given this game , wasn't sure where they were going, but it was a creampuff that only one player got.

Andrews reminded me of the guy who got booted from Survivor last night. At least he ended up playing FJ. Surprising that he was the sole solve on Lake Nicaragua. Lots of really easy clues this game so it was disappointing to watch.

Not a fun game to watch. While that clicker is behind your back, Andrews, it still counts and you have to answer with wild guesses if you can't CLAM. Kristin just stayed out of her own way and played a comfortable game that was enough for a low rent runaway.

FJ was a complete guess after I racked my brain trying to think of the name of the lake that the Panama Canal is attached to. I finally remembered the "Culebra cut", which helped not at all and I couldn't quite pull the lake name (Gatun Lake per Google just now) so I picked Nicaragua without realizing it had water in the name. Yes, there is a Lake Nicaragua (apparently).

I thought giving Andrews the nebula(e) response was OK. Why BMS the obvious. He got spanked for Roberta Frost which I think was a bit of a trap clue. I would CLAM if you just asked me the female equivalent of Robert, at least until I knew the rules of engagement.

I hope OPUS will unpause his DVR freeze frame on the can of sardines and watch the rest of the game soon.

I don't think it should have been a BMS, it should have been an outright neg. He said "nebula," not "nebulae" and "nebula" doesn't fit the category.

Yikes. Since it's Wrestlemania weekend, I think it's fair to call this game "bowling shoe ugly." Andrew's guess of Lindbergh for the guy in the color photo who was the Grand Marshal of the 2010 Tournament of Roses Parade took the cake. I was also shocked none of the three of them, including the contestant who gravitated to the Women Poets category, could come up with Emily Dickinson given her most famous poem.

Female + "wit" = Dorothy Parker, every single time.

Likewise, island city-state = Singapore.

Not silly at all. That's a savvy observation.
Sprinkles are for winners.
