CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Zorn Pink is a policy analyst in a city that I am very familiar with. I went to university there. Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Zorn: I've seen your building, Alex.

Alex: Oh.

Zorn: Yeah.

Alex: At the university.

Zorn: Yeah.

Alex: You hiked the Inca Trail, which a lot of people do. But you did it with a special companion.

Zorn: That's right. For my dad's 60th birthday, we planned a trip to hike the Inca Trail. It was great. Ended at sunrise at Machu Picchu, and it was about four days over, you know, bunch of mountains and rough terrain.

Alex: Did you also hike up that peak at Machu Picchu itself?

Zorn: I did, actually. I was--

Alex: Did your dad do it?

Zorn: No.

Alex: Yeah, it's--

Zorn: He had a bit of a hard time.

Alex: I passed on that also.




Alex: Meredith MacVittie from Ambler, Pennsylvania. You're not a hiker; you're a cyclist.

Meredith: Mm-hm. Yep.

Alex: And tell me about your cycling activities.

Meredith: Well, I'm not very good at it, but it's something that my husband and I like to do just to kind of see the city. We actually did a bike trip to Belgium.

Alex: Oh!

Meredith: It was a bike and a beer tasting trip. So we got to taste a lot of Belgian beer along the way. And yes, we did taste the beer after we were done biking for the day.

Alex: Okay. That's--that's the good part about it.




Alex: Jonathan Dinerstein is our champion, ladies and gentlemen. As you heard, he is a composer. Went to summer camp with somebody very well-known.

Jonathan: Yeah. I went to summer camp with Jake Gyllenhaal, and he was a bit of a celebrity around camp at the time because he had just starred in City Slickers as Billy Crystal's son.

Alex: Aha.

Jonathan: And I didn't know him that well, but he did approach me one day and asked me to teach him how to throw a Frisbee. Because I was known as a good thrower of the Frisbee.

Alex: You two have a connection.

Jonathan: Yes, we do.

Alex: That's good.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Meredith found the Daily Double on the 26th clue. Jonathan had $3,200, Meredith had $6,200, and Zorn was at $3,000. Meredith wagered $2,000.

2 CAN PLAY THAT GAME $800: It's time to start this ancient Asian game played with 361 pieces on a 19-by-19-line board

Double Jeopardy! Round Potential Lach Trash: $5,600



FIRST DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Jonathan snagged the next Daily Double on the 15th clue. Jonathan had $9,800, Meredith had $9,800, and Zorn was at $4,800. Jonathan wagered $3,000.

WORDS FROM THE MALAY $1600: A word from the melee as well as the Malay, to "run" this way is to be wild & frenzied

SECOND DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
It was Zorn who snatched up the last Daily Double of the game on the 22nd clue. Jonathan had $12,800, Meredith had $7,800, and Zorn was at $9,600. Zorn wagered $3,000.

A BIRD $800: Lewis Carroll included himself in Wonderland as this bird--a childhood nickname he got for stuttering his real last name
(Alex: His real last name was Dodgson.)

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE DOUBLE JEOPARDY! ROUND

MOVING THE CAPITAL $800: This country is taking a while to move its government from Dar es Salaam to its new capital Dodoma
(Meredith: What is...)

A BIRD $2000: This man's 414 B.C. comedy "The Birds" features a chorus of them that directly addresses the audience

WORDS FROM THE MALAY $800: A Malay word for a weight gives us this small storage container for your tea
(Alex: And notice, ladies and gentlemen, we gave two pronunciations for Malay. Both are correct.)
[While reading clues in the category, Alex has been alternating saying "MAY-lay" with saying "ma-LAY".]

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Jonathan: $16,400
Zorn: $13,400
Meredith: $8,200

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
19th CENTURY NOTABLES

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
First equals twice third with second crushing third.
Jonathan: Wager $10,400--wagering any more risks falling behind Meredith's wager of $2,200.
Zorn: While a wager of all $13,400 may be a rational possibility (since it has the potential to tie Jonathan if you both get Final right), your more optimal choice is to wager $3,000. Don't fall into the trap of making the Four-fifths Rule wager of $6,001, because if Meredith wagers $2,200, you may fall behind, and in this case it's more important to stay ahead of Meredith than to reap the small benefit your 4/5ths position offers.
Meredith: Wager all $8,200 if you have confidence in your Final-solving abilities or Zorn's wagering abilities. If neither, a wager of $2,200 is good for at least the extra prize potential of a second-place finish (if Jonathan misses Final) and can possibly score the win if Zorn goofs in wagering. Importantly, this latter wager ties Jonathan should Jonathan wager $10,400 but give the incorrect response.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
When he died in Samoa in 1894 his obituary said, "He loved Samoa better than any other place, except Scotland"

FINAL SCORES
Meredith: $8,200 - $2,198 = $6,002 (Who is Gaugin?) (2nd place: $2,000)

Jonathan: $16,400 - $10,401 = $5,999 (Who is Cook?) (3rd place: $1,000)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $6,400

Once again Jonathan had one of those errors when he realized his mistake before the next player rebounded when he had the wrong animal threesome in NURSERY RHYMES.

Zorn hit DD3 with a chance for the lead, but his 9600+3000 only got him to 2nd place with Jonathan still leading at 12800 with 8 clues left on the board. 2nd place was the spot to be today and Zorn made it work for him in the end.

In 1989 I may not have known the FJ! clue. By 2019? It was much easier thanks to the repetition:

For the contestants I would have been shocked if I did not see the painter, whether spelled correctly or not, as I could see the miss coming. Alex enjoyed busting them for the island error. Jonathan may have known enough for who not to guess, unlike his challengers, though he was in the wrong century with the explorer.

I've known this one ever since I read "Requiem" by Robert Heinlein when I was a kid.

"Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie:
Gladly did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

"This be the verse you 'grave for me:
Here he lies where he long'd to be.
Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
"

I thought it was beautiful and poignant then, even before D.D. Harriman appropriated it as his own epitaph. --Bob

Atomizer would actually be a good superhero name.

No Barry Zuckerkorn mention?

(who is still dead)

Coryat: $44,400

J: 24R5W. Got DD. 5/5 on Promotion, Nursery Rhymes, and Superheroes. 4/4 on 2 Can Play. 3/5 on Pagan Lore. 2/5 on Musical Collaborations (which wasn't Jonathan's topic either, despite Alex's suggestion).

DJ: 25R3W. 1/2 on DDs (said "helter-skelter" instead of "amok"). 5/5 on Capitals, European History, and Birds. 3/3 on In the Hand. 4/5 on Actors. 3/5 on Words.

FJ: Missed. Initially came up with Malinowski, then remembered that (a) the Trobriand Islands are nowhere near Samoa; (b) when his diaries were published it became clear that he wasn't actually terribly fond of the inhabitants of said islands; and (c) he was Polish, not Scottish. Spent the rest of the time racking my brain to come up with a Scottish anthropologist, so I was completely on the wrong track.

LT: St. Ives, Aristophanes

I was so thrown by Bohemian Rhapsody winning the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Drama) that I had no chance on Final tonight

Put Alexander Graham Bell just to have, you know, an actual Scottish person as a response

Didn't see the need for Alex's commentary about The Malay

What was the TOM for "wedding" on Celtic for 200?

Blanked on the Taylor Swift duet for 4/5

On the Way to St. Ives was my only miss in Nursery Rhymes.

Can't say I've heard of Vince McMahon.

Rejected Superheroes was a cute category which I ran.

Also don't recognize James Spader at all, nor either character named at $400.

No guess on FJ! This seemed way too wide open.

What was the TOM for "wedding" on Celtic for 200?

Blanked on the Taylor Swift duet for 4/5

On the Way to St. Ives was my only miss in Nursery Rhymes.

Can't say I've heard of Vince McMahon.

Rejected Superheroes was a cute category which I ran.

Also don't recognize James Spader at all, nor either character named at $400.

No guess on FJ! This seemed way too wide open.

31 right.

Lach Trash: Tanzania

Instaget FJ- familiar with Stevenson's year and place of death.

Good run by Jonathan!

After "When he died in Samoa in 1894 ..." I said to myself, "it's either Stevenson or Gauguin"; but after "except Scotland" I knew for sure it was Stevenson.

I didn’t know which island RLS died on, but I knew it was in the South Pacific, which coupled with Scotland made this pretty much an instaget.
