CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Tim Edwards is a paralegal from Tulsa, Oklahoma who once had to jump out of a moving train while in Italy. What are the circumstances of that?

Tim: I did. Well, I didn't know how the doors opened. Uh, and so we were waiting and waiting. And finally, an Italian man came and pushed the button. Uh, some of my party got off. Uh, but the train began moving. And, uh, they had my money, my passport, my wallet. So, despite the Italian man saying, "No, signore! No, signore!" I had to jump. And, uh, I stuck the landing.

Alex: Well, good move. Good for you. Yes.




Alex: Rachel Paterno-Mahler from Playa del Rey, California. Got married, had the same band playing the music for your wedding that played for your parents.

Rachel: I did, yeah. So when my husband Carl and I got married, we wanted to use the same wedding band that played at my parents wedding. It was her--my mom's brother and his friends and they played. And my parents just celebrated their 41st anniversary. So, they are, as the kids say, #RelationshipGoals.

Alex: Oh, good for them. Congratulations to them, also.




Alex: Haley Zapal from Atlanta, Georgia is a copywriter who... is in a classical book club. A movie I enjoyed a few months ago was the "Book Club." I have a feeling your classical book club is not at all like the one Jane Fonda and friends had going.

Haley: Well, I'm in a few of those too, but I have one book club where we read only big, thick novels.

Alex: Really?

Haley: So we've done "Bleak House", "Moby Dick," and "Les Mis."

Alex: Wow. Are you--you're the leader of this group?

Haley: Eh, it's kind of a democracy, but--

Alex: It's a good way to learn. Good way to learn.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
BRAND MASCOTS $1000: Elsie the Cow: this dairy company
(Rachel: What is Lucerne?)
(Haley: What is Laughing Cow?)

POPULAR LITERATURE $800: Dame Daphne du Maurier's works made into Hitchcock films include "Rebecca" & this high-flying novelette
(Tim: What is Vertigo?)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Rachel: $6,400
Haley: $4,000
Tim: $3,600

1970s TV MOVIES $1600: 1971's "Duel", a pulse-pounding tale of a highway chase, made some think this young director had a future

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
20th CENTURY LITERATURE

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place.
Tim: Wager $13,601 to cover Rachel.
Rachel: You're faced with a legitimate choice in strategy. You can either choose to cover Haley, hoping that you give the correct response and Tim doesn't, in which case you'll want to wager $10,401 to cover Haley's doubled score, but no more than $12,400 if you want to top Tim on a Triple Stumper; or bet up to $2,199 and win if both Tim and Haley miss Final.
Haley: You ought to try wagering between $2,201 and $8,200. This will top a $0 wager by Rachel while still beating Tim and Rachel on the Triple Stumper (should Tim wager to cover Rachel's doubled score and Rachel wager to cover your doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
The writing of this novel, the author's first with no Canadian setting, appropriately began in 1984

Nice run by Tim in CRIMINOLOGY to add the $6000 to his score. By the end of the round it was enough to have the lead although Rachel did pass him after DD3.

The FJ! clue was a connect the dots with Haley & Rachel doing 1-2-3-4 while Tim could only do 1-2 with 1984 to dystopia. The clue did not have a him/his/he so the hint was there to think woman writer. Canadian woman with dystopian novel? It’s had plenty of attention lately due to the TV series.

Rachel maximized her winnings which is nice for her. She still has to win three more games at least to make it matter in the long run.

In the 2 of 3 Are Vowels category, does Rachel appear to say "ill"? I assume the correct answer is ail, as ill doesn't fit the category, but I have listened a few times and just can't hear it.

I heard "ail" which is the correct response.

Andy's Thoughts from this posting: https://thejeopardyfan.com/2019/01/fina ... -2019.html

There’s probably going to be some discussion online about this one. On the $1600 clue in 2 OF THE 3 LETTERS ARE VOWELS, it is apparent to me that the judges, by the fact that they did not take points away from Rachel, ruled that Rachel did say “ail” on that clue and not “ill”, in spite of what the closed captioning may claim. Closed captioning is not done by the show’s judges or own post-production staff, it is a service done these days by Los Angeles Distribution and Broadcasting, Inc. by a person who was not in studio at the time of taping, so occasional errors can creep in that way. Moreover, the judges have the ability to isolate each contestant’s audio specifically to determine precisely what was said, and that is a luxury that the home viewer does not have. I myself am perfectly satisfied by the judges’ decision, and I have spoken with others who also definitively heard “ail”.

Seriously, no one gets "The Birds"?

Didn't MSNBC initially intend for Eleventh Hour to be a temporary pre-2016 election thing? Either way, good to see Brian Williams back.

I watch his show sometimes and it's OK, but honestly Lawrence O'Donnell's best work was as Jed Bartlet's father in The West Wing.

Har-har-har, Alex.

Need a ruling: "Boo" as a 3-letter word for sweetheart, two of which are vowels? Like, I'm really really inclined to give myself credit, but maybe there's some subtlety I'm not picking up on.

Coryat: $45,600

J: 20R8P2W. Got DD. 5/5 on Last Word. 4/5 on Mascots and Rhyme. 3/5 on Popular Literature and There Comes a Time (missed "9-to-5" because it seemed way too obvious for the clue value). 1/5 on Names in Music (I said "Ariana Grande" because I thought she kind of looked like someone I had seen in a picture with Pete Davidson once)

DJ: 29R1P. Got both DDs. 4/5 on TV movies, 5/5 on everything else.

FJ: Lucky guess, thanks to the 1984 mention

LT: The Birds, thorns

The clue does not work without "1984" as the hint leading towards the famous Orwell work to make the solver think dystopia.

This novel, the author's first with no Canadian setting, was published in 1985. [That version is much harder to solve.]

I said "Tarzhay" on the Brands DD. Think they'd take that?

Elsie the Cow = Borden eluded me. I could picture it but couldn't focus in on the brand name in time.

Cardi B and Halsey were unfamiliar to me in the Music category. Didn't recognize Childish Gambino either.

However, I ran Rhyme for Feel and 2 Out of 3.

Had a brainfart and couldn't process the "cross made of" quote in time. Totally failed to see "silver" in the clue. Got the next four, though.

Also didn't recognize anything in the World History category.

Recognized everything in TV Movies, but couldn't dredge any of it up in time.

"Sharp blah blah tree" = not needles = confused Hammer. NEGBAIT.

Lach Trash: explode

No guess on FJ! The title and author are not registering for me at all.

An example of how much the writer(s) have been getting something about the author/work in the games during the past calendar year:

#7872, aired 2018-11-27 THE WRITER SPEAKS $200: "When I first began 'The Handmaid's Tale' it was called 'Offred,' the name of its central character"
#7859, aired 2018-11-08 THE TV SHOW'S CHARACTERS $800: Future imperfect: Serena Joy, Ofglen
#7839, aired 2018-10-11 DRIVING ALEXIS $1200: If you're driving this actress, it may be to the set of "The Handmaid's Tale"
#7769, aired 2018-05-24 AUDIBLE RECENT FICTION $400: More than 30 years after its publication, this dystopian novel read by Claire Danes is a bestseller A shape, red with white wings around the face, a shape like mine, a nondescript woman in red carrying a basket
#7759, aired 2018-05-10 TV: WHO PLAYED 'EM? $800: Peggy Olson on "Mad Men" & Offred on "The Handmaid's Tale"

I do understand how all of those hits do not necessarily lead to the solve or being close. If the author/title do not even ring familiar? Then that is a problem that could lead to difficulty to many other clues in different areas.

Does the J! website's "Today's Lineup" feature not handle punctuation? Rachel's last name is hyphenated according to the show intros, but does not appear as such on the "Today's Lineup" feature. Noticed the same thing during Jackie's run; introduced as an attorney and writer but the site listed "attorney writer". Anyway....

Wasn't getting this Final in a million years either. Heard of Atwood and the novel/Hulu show in question, but that's about the extent of my knowledge of the work.

ETA: Hulu. Thanks econgator.

I might be able to get it in 50 guesses if I figured that the writer was a woman.

My preference is to let others be the judge since I often overlook things that matter for a ruling. No one else has checked in so I will give "boo" a yes. Now it will take two negs to take away the get from your Coryat.

To me the word "new" is not enough to pin to "bae" or to eliminate "boo" and the requirement for length and vowel structure is met. Count "boo."

Canadian writer took me first to Robertson Davies, whom I quickly rejected as not generally in the expected knowledge pool for Jeopardy. Next stop was Margaret Atwood and the other parts of the clue just fell into place. I had plenty of time to make sure that "this" was asking me for a title and not an author.
