OPENING REMARKS
Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome, everyone. I haven't done any research on this, but I get the feeling that it's easier for Jeopardy! champions to maintain momentum--positive momentum--during the week, rather than winning a game on Friday and coming back on the following Monday. We're going to find out how that applies to Anneke today. Charlie and Suzy, welcome aboard. Let's go to work, players. Here are the categories you deal with now...

JEOPARDY! ROUND CATEGORIES
EXOTIC WILDLIFE (5/5)
OLYMPIANS (5/5)
CONNECTIQUETTE (5/5, including 1 correct Daily Double)
"T...Y" VERY MUCH (5/5)
WINDMILLS (5/5)
FOUND IN TRANSLATION (2/5)

THE RIGHTS & THE WRONGS
Anneke: 11 R, 1 W
Charlie: 8 R (including 1 DD), 0 W
Suzy: 8 R (including 1 rebound), 0 W

Clues revealed: 30
Triple Stumpers: 3
Jeopardy! Round Potential Lach Trash: $2,000



JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Charlie found the Daily Double on the 12th clue. Anneke had $1,000, Charlie had $1,600, and Suzy was at $1,600. Charlie wagered $1,000.

SCORES AT THE FIRST BREAK
Charlie: $2,800
Suzy: $2,000
Anneke: $1,600

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Suzy Langevin is a social worker from Massachusetts, who began her career in jail?

Suzy: I did. My first job out of graduate school was at a juvenile detention facility. And I came home the first day and told my husband, "I have my own office." I didn't mention that it had bars on the window.

Alex: How long did you last in that job?

Suzy: I was there for about three years. I really loved it.

Alex: Did you get out on probation? Were you paroled? How did it work?

Suzy: Good behavior, yeah.

Alex: Oh, good for you.




Alex: Charlie Jensen, program director from here in L.A. Started writing poetry a long time ago, and what has come about as a result?

Charlie: Well, I have a career as a poet, which pays zero dollars, so that's why I'm here today.

Alex: I was just gonna say, that's--

Charlie: Yeah. But I've published a few books, and I work for a large creative writing program that's open enrollment, so anyone can take a class.

Alex: All right, good for you.




Alex: Anneke Garcia is our champion. She is from Salt Lake City, Utah. She is working on writing also. Not poetry.

Anneke: No.

Alex: But something that more people can relate to.

Anneke: Hopefully.

Alex: And that is a cookbook, right?

Anneke: Yes.

Alex: What kind of cooking are we talking about?

Anneke: The focus is on making things you can make at home without having to go and buy a bunch of ingredients or necessarily have all the right things on hand, so.

Alex: There are a whole lot of companies out there right selling pre-packaged foods.

Anneke: Yeah.

Alex: That you can prepare in 30 minutes.

Anneke: Yeah.

Alex: Is that the wave of the future?

Anneke: I like the concept, but you'd miss something just going to the market or the grocery store and getting what's fresh, so I'm a little old school on that one.

Alex: All right. Good for you.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
FOUND IN TRANSLATION $400: Jean-Paul Sartre's "L'Être et le Néant"

FOUND IN TRANSLATION $600: Ovid's "Ars Amatoria"

FOUND IN TRANSLATION $1000: Franz Lehar's operetta "Die Lustige Witwe"

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Anneke: $5,800
Suzy: $5,400
Charlie: $4,600

It’s unusual when the challengers each go 2/2 on big clues while the champ goes 1/2 yet still prevails. Anneke is “The Closer” as she takes care of business to end the DJ! rounds.

FAMILIAR PHRASES looked like trouble as one of those word origin types that are not the best for me. The writers were kind to throw in a stage/movie portion which made the solve gettable for me. It’s the kind of clue where I may have been helped by watching the old episodes of What’s My Line? as both writer George Axelrod and actor Tom Ewell had appearances.

Alex’s opening was about the difference for a champ continuing through the week or coming back on a Monday. Anneke started off the new taping day well.

Andy, was today's show a fresh taping week or the second day of taping?

i.e. I wonder if these two challengers had the chance to watch any games from the audience?

if not, I call it a slight additional advantage to the returning champ. (yes they all got the buzzer practice and the gameplay walkthrough, but there's nothing quite like the real thing...)

It was a fresh week, but Charlie is from Los Angeles, so he'd have been an alternate before and would have been through it once already.

Of course, in spite of Charlie's extra studio time, Anneke outbuzzed him 25-11.

Charlie seemed to bring his pornstache game. I approve.

Couldn't do "soledad" to "solitude" in Translation for $200. That whole category seemed extremely tough, since you had to YEKIOYD instead of going for cognates, since there WERE no cognates.

Ran "TY", though. I thank System of a Down for teaching me the word "toxicity".

"Wait, there's a smelling SYSTEM?... Oh, duh." Also couldn't get caribou.

Olympians and Memo were destined to be 0/5 for me.

"Birth of Venus" rings no bells for me.

Terms of Endurement went entirely over my head. "Grit" is a term of endurement?

Can't say I've heard of Joely Fisher or Connie Stevens, so the Carrie Fisher connection was lost on me. And apparently the contestants too.

Did they edit out an LTaM? It seems like there was an odd jump cut after the last Euro clue, and DJ! came up one clue short.

Had nothing on FJ! Rejected the correct response, as I couldn't figure out how it "had a new meaning" after the movie, which I have heard of.

Argh. This was one of those instances where I was too preoccupied with something else while the episode was playing. And when it got to FJ, my attention only went back to the show right as the responses were being revealed. So because of that, I wasn't able to play today's. Not sure if I would have been able to come up with the right response either way.

Is "Connectiquette" the longest single word to ever appear in a category title?

YOU, WHAT, DO YOU OWN THE WORLD? HOW DO YOU OWN DISORDER, DISORDER?

Svalbard has long been at the top of my list for "exotic places I'd like to work in sometime."

Really wish Alex had responded to "What is her horse?" with "Of course, of course."

"Grit" - Chuck Pagano, 2012-2017

My dad grew up next door to a man who had played in Sousa's band

I was this close to saying Petain because that would be so ironic, but I stuck with my gut.

Surprised "Benedict" didn't get a BMS, though I can see the argument why it wouldn't need it (there's only been one since the Euro has been A Thing)

Coryat: $41,000

J: 26R4P. Missed DD (didn't get lab coat because I was thinking in terms of academic regalia). 5/5 on Olympians, TY, Windmills, and Found in Translation. 3/5 on Wildlife and Connectiquette.

DJ: 24R4P1W. Got both DDs. 5/5 on Euro Coins, Terms of Endurement, Story of My Life, and They Got the Memo. 2/4 on In the Cloud. 2/5 on Dressed Alike (said "Melania Trump" instead of "Meghan Markle," and I'm still washing the taste of that name out of my mouth).

FJ: Popped into my head after a few seconds.

LT: Being and Nothingness, Art of Love, The Merry Widow, Carrie Fisher (how was that a triple-stumper?), A-H

Soledad is certainly a cognate for "solitude." (And Witwe for "widow.")

Nowadays the phrase refers to the idea that someone in a marriage gets restless after seven years. (I'll spare everyone the fruitless lecture of how one should always give a response if they come up with anything at all for FJ and DDs.)

The longest words to appear in a category name are probably TELECOMMUNICATIONS and INTERNATIONALITIES, with 18 letters each. Other lengthy portmanteaus that have been used include SHAKESPEARIENCED, VISUALLITERATION, APOCALYTERATURE, and INITIALITERATURE.

Anneke got some hard ones to surge to the lead at the end.

FJ was pretty easy, but I didn't register the movie/play until most the way through it. Now I can see the Marilyn Monroe(?) movie poster in my mind for Seven Year Itch. Sounds like Alex needs some anti-fungals or steroid creams for those several that he's had.

I thought the book translations were pretty difficult - the titles weren't quite Pavlovs (maybe Dostoevsky was), and the words pretty obscure.

I had a very close call but was able to pause the DVD and time jump the K*****hian clue to keep my virginity about knowing anything about the family tree. Boardies - please spoiler any talk about the family who shall not be named and then spoiler the spoiler. And write it in Icelandic, just in case - maybe pig-latinized Icelandic? :lol:

I am prepared for pornstaches to return and will not be a curmudgeon. But I'll be glad when the current facial hair fad goes out of fashion, not for the looks, but just because I have disdain for the religions that impose beards and veils and head coverings. If your teachings are so damn good, why all the fashion and dietary rules? No offense intended to any devotees here or anywhere else but these restrictions are not entirely voluntary in many parts of the world to many many people, especially the females.
