CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Elizabeth Edwards is a graduate student in museum studies from Tennessee who has done something that makes me very envious, and that is in relation to the Smithsonian. Tell me what you did.

Elizabeth: I've actually been in the back room of the storage room of the Smithsonian in several departments.

Alex: What's the most impressive thing that you saw backstage, if you will?

Elizabeth: My favorite thing was actually Klinger's pink coat that he wore during M*A*S*H. We were kind of in the, uh, pop culture area, so I knew it immediately, and nobody else in my group knew what it was.

[Laughs]

Alex: Okay, there might be a reason for that.




Alex: Sean O'Connor is a young attorney from Missouri, whose mustache, I understand, is Jeopardy!-inspired?

Sean: Um, yeah. Um, I figured somebody's gotta have one, so I...

Alex: I haven't had mine in a long, long time.

Sean: No, you haven't.

Alex: About ten years. Do you get a lot of comments about it?

Sean: Uh, I do, both good and semi-good.

[Laughter]

Alex: Okay.




Alex: Kirby Burnett, poker dealer from Minnesota. You, uh, were doing really well in that New Age thinking category a few moments ago, and I understand that one of the reasons, probably, is because you went to a self-realization fellowship headquarters, uh, for a visit. So you're into that stuff.

Kirby: Yes.

Alex: And you met somebody famous there that you didn't recognize at the time.

Kirby: Yes, uh, this, uh, polite, uh, middle-aged gentleman, uh, British accent, came up and asked me for directions, and I gave him the directions. He said, "Thank you." And I... I know that guy. Dudley Moore? And then a friend of mine came up and said, "That's George Harrison!"

[Laughter]

Alex: Yeah. I'm beginning to have my doubts now about you, but you have command of the board, so you get to pick our next clue. Go for it.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Kirby found the Daily Double on the 26th clue. Kirby had $8,400, Sean had $1,200, and Elizabeth was at $2,800. Kirby wagered $3,400.

YOU'LL NEED INSURANCE $800: A film noir classic, or a clause providing for payment of twice the face value of a policy

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
MUSIC ALPHABET $200: "A" is for a capella, from the Italian for "in" this place

MUSIC ALPHABET $400: "B" is for bis, sometimes used to ask musicians for this
(Alex: For [*]. Play it again, Sam.)

YOU'LL NEED INSURANCE $1000: Franz Kafka's day job was as a bureaucrat administering this type of compensation, like for accidents

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Kirby: $11,800
Elizabeth: $3,400
Sean: $1,200

Very nice job by Kirby.

I joined the losers on FJ! Alex made it seem like there was some history that should have led to the right response- anyone want to fill the rest of us in? Wikipedia wasn't any help.

Stupid clue. Let's give you Italian sounding names and then have the correct response be a French island.

I, too, went with Sicily and have no clue what Alex was rambling on about.

On another topic, did anyone else know that there was a Tripoli in Lebanon? I sure didn't. :)

No, no obvious history at all, and more to the point, if the Final Jeopardy question was "Quick, name the treaty that ended the Great Northern War," it would have just as bad a question. FJs are not supposed to be written in such a manner.

Perhaps if one family name seemed Italian, and the other French, Corsica would make a great deal of sense, and you could reason it out based on Corsica's history of both French and Italian control (which is how you're suppose to solve these questions normally). But really there's nothing to point to Corsica vs Sardinia or Sicily. "Durazzo" is actively unhelpful, as the most famous Durazzo is a city in modern day Albania, on the other side of the peninsula.

So, no, you shouldn't feel bad if you guessed wrongly.

While I am ranting, I wanted to point out another question, which seemed kinda stupid.

"Franz Kafka's day job was as a bureaucrat administering this type of compensation, like for accidents"

I am going to quibble and point out that Kafka worked for a year at another insurance company before his more "famous" job. My impression is that this first job was just doing whatever, and it didn't involve workman's comp in particular.

But I really hate the question because - why not just make Kafka the answer? You've only told the contestants that this type of insurance you are looking for involves accidents. Gosh, that really narrows it down! Second, having Kafka as an answer would have change things up a bit, as the rest of the category was very insurance-jargon heavy. Unless, of course, they seriously expected the contestants to know what specific kind of insurance that Kafka sold.

You actually have, in a sense - it's what was formed from the more famous ancient cities of Tyre and Sidon, plus some other one whose named escapes me. Hence "three cities."

Let's see, we have less than a minute to go. I'm way behind, but can still break the champ's lock. One full category remains. What should I do?

Of course, I'll start at the top and be sure to slowly say the full name of a very wordy category name.

Same boat as the others on FJ, sailing to the wrong island. Feuding and Italian names seemed like it should be on the home of the Mafia, but I had a bad feeling that was a red herring.

Thanks AP, I feel better :) All Durazzo did for me was make me wonder if it means "peach" in Italian, because in Spanish a peach is a durazno.

Amen on FJ. My two options were Sicily and Sardinia (went with the former)...Corsica never even entered my mind. (Well, maybe for a second, only to be tossed aside quickly.)

My response on the Tripoli clue: "What is Tripoli...is so wrong, because...oh, that's right? Wow. Didn't know that."

I usually have a high tolerance for cutesy category concepts, but what was the point of connecting Megan Fox to that brain category, honestly? (My snarky thought after "Inside The Brain of Megan Fox" came up: "What brain?" :D)

I could practically hear the cheers of boardies when Reality TV didn't get finished in the J! round. (I had swept the category so far, so bah humbug. :) )

Kirby really impressed me today, and showed a nice breadth of knowledge. After keeping up very well yesterday with two tough opponents, and maintaining a lock almost the entire game today (plus making some meaty DD wagers), I think he's definitely not a one-and-done (or in this case now, two-and-done) type player. His lethargic clue selection still bugs me, though.

I didn't mind it, and was also 3-0 on that one. but they were pretty simple

He is a bit slow, but that doesn't bother me if they are a good player.

I'm going to say that the FJ will be one of the lowest scoring FJ's of the year, and that a large majority of JBoarders went with Sicily. A truly terrible clue.

Good point. I wasn't thinking of it in that way (and the 3rd city was Arados).

Alla dis.
I predict low, low get rate in the poll. (And almost all misses are Sicily.)

ETA that I didn't know I was copying Crunchy Taco almost verbatim, and I can't believe I didn't think of Johan Adams as John Adams in my Halloween TD Party! Jim Davis was never invited. But the first three all attended!

14/28, 12/30.

Two more country music related clues today. Of course I got them. :D

5/5 in Postal abbreviations and Homonyms, but Bis kept me from sweeping the Music category.

And once again, my prosopagnosia strikes. I have no clue how anyone could ever tell Jane Seymour from any one of a billion other actresses. Megan Fox included.

Epic geographic fail for me. "Um... let's see, what're the islands near Italy? San Marino and ... Cyprus, I think? Eh, just pick one. San Marino it is." Only barely ever heard of Corsica.

I came here to lick my wounds after falling for the Sicily negbait, to ask if anyone else knew there was a Tripoli in Lebanon (I blurted out Tripoli before processing the Lebanon bit, so I was lucky), and to figure out WTF that brain category had to do with Megan Fox, but I see that I'm not alone. I feel better now...slightly.

I had no idea who that actress was but the wording in the answer led me to Mrs. Henry VIII, part 3.0.

San Marino is not an island.
