OPENING REMARKS
[Anneke makes a "V" sign with one hand during the introductions.]

Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Thank you, folks. Anneke, with $25,601, you could have made a bigger "V". It would have been justifiable.

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Jocelyn Martich is from North Carolina. And you, I understand, are related to somebody who was many years ago accused of witchcraft?

Jocelyn: That's right. I recently became interested in genea--geneaology, and found I'm descended from Rebecca Nurse, who was tried and executed in the Salem Witch Trials, and is also a character in The Crucible.

Alex: Wow. Okay.




Alex: Sarah Ann, from San Diego, California. A breast cancer survivor. You are a research professional. Is some of your research associated with cancer right now?

Sarah: Yes, it is. And I just got into it after--you have to learn so much when you're diagnosed with cancer. And you just dive right in. And so I chose to go into clinical trials coordinating--coordination.

Alex: A lot of good stuff coming, I hope.

Sarah: Yes.

Alex: Yeah. Good research?

[Sarah nods.]

Alex: All right.




Alex: Anneke Garcia is our champion. She is from Salt Lake City. You enjoy making gelatin.

Anneke: Yes.

Alex: When I was growing up, we had a lot of that stuff.

Anneke: I know. It's good stuff.

Alex: Yeah, but now...

Anneke: Well, I started out, just, you know, your standard fruity marshmallow things. But there's actually social media groups for bringing back the aspic, the salty thing, the--the tuna and mayonnaise. I think my most daring one to date was a pickle juice gelatin that I--

Alex: Pickle juice?

Anneke: Yes. It wasn't potable, but it was potent.

Alex: Okay.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Sarah found the Daily Double on the 30th clue. Anneke had $4,600, Sarah had $3,800, and Jocelyn was at $4,400. Sarah wagered $3,000.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
THE STATE OF NATURE $800: The Sawtooth Mountains, one of Hemingway's favorite playgrounds
(Anneke: What is North Carolina?)

ESSENTIAL EARLS $600: Frank & Brooks Robinson helped Earl Weaver guide this team to 3 straight pennants from 1969 to 1971

GOING "DUTCH" $600: In 1935 this man thought hey, let's kill Thomas Dewey; fearing backlash, crime bosses added bullets to his restaurant order

A SIMPLE FLICK OF THE WRIST $800: Bob Feller said, "Unlike the curve, the snap of the wrist is late & the arm turns in only half as much" throwing this pitch

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Sarah: $6,800
Anneke: $4,600
Jocelyn: $4,400

Kevin, Barbara, Mark, Daymond and Lori representing with no Robert this time. The J! round was completed even with those videos clues done earlier in the round. I was happy to get 5/5 since I do watch the show.

The FJ! clue stumped me and I scribbled Doyle at the end to avoid a blank page even though I felt strongly I was doubly wrong in suspecting he was both dead in 1938 and was a doctor.

This is the only clue I could find in the Archive to have the artist/movement and the guy:
SpoilerShow
#794, aired 1988-02-04 ART $100: One goal of this Spanish surrealist is the exact rendering of Freudian dreams
Too far back and not enough repetition over the years to help me.

What’s that noise? Oh, I think I hear the sirens of the wagering police.

The wagers!!

Moderately surprised at the FJ misses. Surrealist paintings look a little crazy —> who’s a very famous doctor to crazy people —> Freud. QED. :geek:

I got there in 30 seconds, but I needed at least 20. Having the word Doctor in the clue might have helped. I had to go back and look at the category.

The trivia gods are messing with me today as Millionaire (I watched after J!) had a Q about my wrong guess for the FJ! clue.

The % for the FJ! clue is going up from the 0/3 on the show to 0/4 after my post and now up to 2/6.

2/7. The best I could get to in 30 seconds was the nowhere-near-close Hugh Lofting.

This game is a win for the Strong Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "big." --Bob

I've heard of a "weakest link", but NHO the proverb they had surrounding that phrase, so it threw me for a loop and cost me the run.

The Shark Tank category seemed incredibly YEKIOYD. This whole board seemed strangely cryptic, come to think of it.

Also 0/5 in Earls.

I thought that Dutch Schultz guy was far more obscure than anything else in Dutch. My only precall was all the way down at $800, so I think the values were a tad off.

Ran Adjectives.

NHO the IRA. Had to look it up to see what it even stood for.

Had no idea where to even start on FJ! Massive headslap on reveal. I just don't have Freud filed in my head as "Doctor", so he didn't surface. Just like I didn't have "The Sopranos" filed under "drama" in my head.

I guessed Freud with zero confidence, but I'll take it.

The less said about the wagers, the better.

No guess on FJ.

4/5 on the phrase category (couldn't get the highest value one).

When in doubt, blurt out Freud. Complete WAG, but they all count.

9300 didn't cover Jocelyn, but at least I can see the logic. Why the hell did Jocelyn bet 10000?!? (Yes, I know, probably a Nice Round Number...damnit.) At least her DD wagers probably didn't make a difference; I definitely wasn't a fan of betting 3000 while down 11K.

Good grief, ladies, at least take a swing! Freud was a rather confident WAG for FJ.

Why?
I absolutely loved Anneke's wager. It keeps Sarah out of the picture and defeats Jocelyn keeping Sarah locked out by a couple of bucks in a TS. Better still, she beats any intelligent wager from Jocelyn when they are both correct.

I was pleased to see a video clue of Starved Rock. I've spent many hours walking the trails there.

You're right, given the results of the game, her wager was great! It wins if all 3 are right and it wins if all 3 are wrong. As long as she knows second place will bet $10,000, it's the perfect wager!

Surrealism is like dreams...Freud wrote The Interpretation of Dreams...I found this one pretty easy...
