CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Steve Spriensma is a writer from Port Dover, Ontario, Canada. And we had a champion on our program a few years back named Ken Jennings.

Steve: Yes.

Alex: And you, I hear, were obsessed with watching him.

Steve: I had a bit of an obsession with him in high school. I wrote in my yearbook that my life's goal was to defeat him at Jeopardy!. And I don't know about that, but I did manage to find an error in one of his books, so...

Alex: In one of his books.

Steve: Yeah, Maphead.

Alex: And did you point it out to him?

Steve: I did on Twitter, yeah.

Alex: And did he respond?

Steve: He did, and he was very gracious about it.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Marilyn Maher, from Athens, Ohio.

Marilyn: Yes.

Alex: You've been best friends with your best friends for how many years now?

Marilyn: Yes, I have two best friends. One of them is Jessica. I've been best friends with her since we were in fourth grade, so almost twenty years. And then my other best friend, her name is Skye, and I've been best friends with her for over fifteen years.

Alex: Good for you.




Alex: Suzanne Koppelman is our champion. Worked at the largest cathedral in the world, which is located...

Suzanne: In New York City.

Alex: Yes.

Suzanne: Yes, it's the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. It's being built in the style of a medieval cathedral. And it was started over 100 years ago, and it's still not finished.

Alex: Must be government financing involved.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND

YOU PASS BUTTER $2000: Sanskrit for "to sprinkle" gives us this word for a clarified butter

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Steve: $9,600
Marilyn: $8,000
Suzanne: $7,200

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
AMERICAN AUTHORS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Steve: Wager $6,401 to cover Marilyn.
Marilyn: You ought to wager to cover Suzanne, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you ought to choose between wagering $0 or maximizing your winnings with a bet of all $8,000. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $6,400 (to shut out Suzanne) or less than $4,800 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Suzanne). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Steve.
Suzanne: You ought to try wagering between $801 and $4,000. This will top a $0 wager by Marilyn while still beating Steve and Marilyn on the Triple Stumper (should Steve wager to cover Marilyn's doubled score and Marilyn wager to cover your doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
Her 1896 New York Times obituary called her "the writer of probably the most widely read work of fiction ever penned"

FINAL SCORES
Suzanne: $7,200 - $0 = $7,200 (Who is Ja) (2nd place: $2,000)
Marilyn: $8,000 + $6,401 = $14,401 (Who is Harriet Beecher Stowe) (New champion: $14,401)
Steve: $9,600 - $6,401 = $3,199 (Who is Agatha Christie?) (3rd place: $1,000)
(Alex: Mark Twain referred to her as the little lady who started the Civil War.)
...
(Alex: [To Marilyn] Uncle Tom's Cabin was the book.)

The game was a little bit of a letdown after yesterday’s dazzler. The yell stumper of the day was in MOVIE SEQUEL SUBTITLES when no one knew what went with “2: Electric Boogaloo”

Tough for Suzanne to repeat going 0/4 on the big clues and yet she was only a harder FJ! clue away from doing it.

For me the FJ! clue was hard enough as is as I too often have a defective mental coin. I wrote Alcott (died 1888) for no great reason instead of going with the right author.

Alex’s pre-reveal remark, “Believe it or not if you’re good at math it may help you with our final today…” did nothing to help and only distracted me as I attempted to figure out what he meant. He was going for somehow I would know how many years to subtract from a death year to reach the publishing year? Birth year? Sometimes the host needs to say less and just show the clue.

If anyone cares a sample of Steve’s writing can be found here: https://thehumanist.com/contributor/steven-spriensma/

Or here: http://bayobserver.ca/profile/stevep/

Marilyn winning the game will be a good test for what a game’s worth of experience is worth. An 8000 Coryat is nothing special and The Jeopardy! Fan has her chances of repeating at 28.73% to leave plenty of room for improvement. We’ll see what earning a spot at the champ’s position can do for Marilyn to demonstrate another gear.

At least we missed with Americans. Steve clearly had a Brit and I wonder if Suzanne was heading towards Jane Austen? Hope it was not (Shirley) Jackson.

I had Stowe and changed it to Mary Shelley at the last second. I know "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was hugely read in the mid-century, but I figured Frankenstein was possibly more popular. The NY Times reference should have kept me with an American. Shelley died young- 40 years earlier, so I was quite a bit off there.

Not to mention that Steve had a Brit who was born in 1890 and who didn't die until 1976. For a writer - well, that was pretty close to a Clavin FJ experience. Poor guy - he looked like he knew it as soon as time ran out. But, at least he wagered properly! :geek:

Beside the category AMERICAN AUTHORS keeping someone with an American and not Mary Shelley the writers tried as well as the game had a prior Mary Shelley clue.

Instaget FJ! Stowe immediately went into my mind when the clue came up. Uncle Tom's Cabin was arguably the most read novel of the 19th century so it had to be her.

Also Agatha Christie was 5 years old when Stowe died.

"Most widely read work of fiction" by a female American author? Probably Uncle Tom's Cabin. Let's go with Louis---WAIT NO, Harriet Beecher Stowe!! Wait, speaking of Alcott, was Little Women more widely read? ......nah, stick with Stowe. Whew, that would have been the most aggravating miss in ages.

Alex’s comment had me ready for a clue that actually involved math. But I did use his hint a bit and decided a woman who died 31 years after the war might be the one who started it. Though I had no idea how old she was when she wrote the book.

Did my station start the show late, or did they let the DJ! round run long? I was shocked that they finished that round.

And while I'm here, Charlotte Bronte. Wrong country, and died young, but not the worst guess.

I figured Little Women has probably been far more widely read up to now, but not in 1896.

Another sub optimal wager going into FJ without the lead, but it worked out for her with the stump.
If she had only been as gun shy on her last two DDs as she was on her final wager, and bet a nominal $100 for each, she would have had the lead going into FJ.

Dickinson wrote poetry, and her work was published posthumously. Given the clue, it’s not much better as a guess.
