Jackie and Alex already have a rapport going that reminds me of Stephanie Jass and Nan Bauer. Jackie pulled a new one on Alex with the "false Daily Double" doing 3000 of her 3800.

Jackie also got the best of Alex at chat time with, "It's a cool heat" to conclude her hot coals story.

Jackie has previous game show experience with The Dating Game, The Chase and Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

Funny where Faris decided to bet big and small.

DD1: 800+800 on the 3rd clue. Yeah, don't go hog crazy with that extra $200 permitted
DD3: 5800-2000 with Jackie at 10000 on clue 17. Yeah, don't try to get the lead or anything like that.
FJ!: 5400+5400 - Game's over doesn't matter

The FJ! clue gave me a typical detour as I processed "Don't ever grow up" to kneejerk Peter Pan peanut butter. As I questioned myself why I had not heard of them having troubles I realized the duh response of what to write.

The players found three different ways to have the correct name with an apostrophe, backward letter, and hyphens in the mix.

We'll see if on Monday Alex can get to Jackie's famous music past or if Jackie can slow down the champ carousel. The 2-correct streak by the players is over with the first 3/3 in a little while.

I watched this online because Jackie's my friend and I felt it was far more likely than usual to be spoiled on the outcome on social media today. Plus I'll be out this evening.

Six clues after LTaM, Noah's choice to jump to the top of the category (scores $5,000-$6,000-$13,200) was fatal (although it ultimately didn't matter since everyone got FJ right). $800 would have sufficed to break the lock without risking being overtaken by Faris.

I definitely need to check out Mt. Obama.

Also proud that I was able to work out Suriname from "Wilhelmina" and "Juliana."

And what was up with Noah's choice of that last clue? He had $6,000 to Jackie's $13,200, so he needs at least $600 more and he picks a $400 clue?

LTAM with nine clues on the board. So of course they insist on saying the Vacation category in its entirety every time they call for a clue.

Loved the "False Daily Double".

====

Ran Mythological Taxonomy.

The Audible category was easy. I got all but Jane Eyre.

Also got all but Jack the Dripper in "Jack".

NHO the guy in the top box on Celebrities.

Paris has an Opera?!

Didn't recognize anything in That Happened. Any reason I should recognize that Lula person?

Instaget FJ! finally breaks my losing streak going back to 11/15.

Lach Trash: upset, anointment, Madison Square Garden, The Pearl. Also got the Tom Sawyer DD.

I remember Jackie from The Chase. Cool to see her on Jeopardy now. I wonder if The Runaways will be brought up in Monday's interview, since it wasn't today.

After some deliberation, I got today's FJ right. 2/5 this week. I'll take it.

I remember a kid on a Teen Tournament many years ago asking for a "nonfictious Daily Double". ("The Body Human" for $800 in this game.)

Go, Jackie! I was alerted to her appearance by a number of Facebook friends and it was fun to watch her in action. I’m not at all sure whether her past as a rock star will come out, both because of the silence about Paris Themmen’s past and her own revelations about her time in the band (and Kim Fowley’s sleaziness*) in The HuffPo.

* I recall hearing him interviewed on Rodney on the Rock on KROQ and thinking that he sounded like a creep, but still...

Jackie got the first Double Jeopardy DD with $3,800. She was like "I'm going to make it a... False Daily Double, which means um-- I just always wanted to say that-- $3,000." Alex replied with "You're a troublemaker, Jackie!"

Several boardies in the inner circle have alluded to Jackie's CV, which is very impressive. Her mastery of the law category came into perspective.
For us non-cool kids, a PSA.
SpoilerShow
Jackie Fuchs is aka Jackie Fox of an all girl band called the Runaways in the mid-1970's. Joan Jett was member/founder? Much more on the Wiki page.
Mods - If this is inappropriate for privacy reasons, please delete or PM me so I can expunge accordingly.

The girl from LA came roaring like the Chargers against the Chiefs, and I'm sure she could score on our defense about as easily.

Got the FJ by remembering the category - otherwise it could be a lot of misdirections. I don't know why it was qualified as a US location thing - maybe they have international entities surviving. That TOM didn't help, but wasn't negbait either.

A couple of good categories - Jack was fun. I thought the Straits one was a tough one. Why are the damn things even called that and have names?

The way FJ was worded made me think it was just a website and not a brick-and-mortar business. I spent the entire 30 seconds trying to think of a kid-focused website to famously shut down this year and came up with nothing.

The FJ reveal sure came as a relief. I was terrified that Peter Pan peanut butter was no more.

got to love the dude in 2nd place not going for the highest valued clue remaining on the board with less than a minute to go and allowing for the game to be locked as a runaway...not even giving him a chance to win

Yay, Jackie! Way to go! Hopefully we'll be seeing you for quite a few episodes.

That was a Kids Week FJ (pun intended).

And not to worry, twelvefootboy, her history is quite well known.
