Alex: Thank you, Johnny. I hope all you folks noticed Jill was kind of poker-faced until Johnny mentioned the amount of money she has won over two days.

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Joan Dietrich is a Montessori teacher from the state of Washington, who is a big football fan of the Seattle Seahawks and a big hockey fan of the Vancouver Canucks. Now you've heard that Seattle is going to be the next city, probably, to get an NHL friends.

Joan: We have. We made an agreement with friends who want season tickets that we'll go to all the Canucks games, so we'll still be Canucks fans in Seattle.

Alex: Oh, all right. Good for you.




Alex: Sean Thompson, library assistant from New Brunswick, Canada. You're a curler. Competitively?

Sean: No. My sister is, but I just curl recreationally.

Alex: Oh, really? What's that mean? You sit there and have a beer and watch others play?

Sean: No, it means I go out onto the ice, lose two-thirds of the time, and have somebody else buy me a beer.

Alex: Smart move.




Alex: Jill Regan is our champion. She is from Dedham, Massachusetts. Who--is this true? You once surprised your boyfriend with bees?

Jill: I did. I love to garden, and I had heard that, you know, that pollinators were more important to have in the garden, so I had ordered bees online. And so it was a little too early in the year to put them outside, so I stored them in the refrigerator in a bag marked "Bees--Do Not Touch". He opened it up and said, "What are these bees doing in the fridge?" He says I'm difficult to live with. I don't know.

[Laughter]

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Sean found the Daily Double on the 22nd clue. Jill had $4,000, Sean had $4,400, and Joan was at $2,400. Sean wagered $3,600.

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Sean: $11,000
Jill: $5,200
Joan: $2,400

Sean the library assistant got the clue for the library's enclosed private cubicle, so I thought it was going to be his day as 11,000 after the J! round seem to point.

Nope, he was doubly wrong in the FJ! round with a big lead having the wrong name and misspelling her as well. +7400 on DDs was big though not big enough.

Jill had her own chance to win from second place as she bet enough to cover Joan. Jill was closer in era to the right name though still off.

Nice win by Joan to take the game from third with the sole solve and no DDs played.

I turned the FJ! clue into a movie clue in spotting "circle" to think of the right name and "vitriol" made me think of "Vicious" in the 1994 Jennifer Jason Leigh film. Whatever works. I'll take it.

2/5 in RECENT TV. That category is difficult to keep up with and I do my best to try. Too many shows these days.

I saw the category was WRITERS, not AUTHORS, and started at Emily Dickinson given "lacy sleeve". Once the clue got going though, my thought process was pretty much the same as Mark's.

Poor Sean. My guess is that big red flag and blaring klaxon in the FJ clue didn’t mean anything to him so he just picked a woman author at random. But if there is one thing Austen wasn’t, it’s vitriolic.

This board in general felt very YEKIOYD. Felt like a lot of clues just didn't have TOMs at all.

"Michael Douglas" is way too generic a name to stick in my brain. I am vaguely aware that there is someone by that name, but since there are probably 40 trillion other people with that exact name, I forget what he's famous for. Why can't more celebs have weird names?

Didn't recognize "sovereign" or "prognosis" in the vocab category, nor "rhubarb" as a squabble. That was a tough vocab category.

Don't recognize "A Winter's Tale" either.

"This Frito-Lay snack" felt very wide open. I saw no way to narrow that down at all.

I thought "Nittany" was extremely obscure for the top box.

Can't say I've heard of a "stealth fighter" either.

However, I ran Starts with 3 Consonants.

No guess on FJ! The clue seemed way too vague and open-ended to point to anyone. How about a TOM or something to narrow it down?!

The giveaway on the FJ answer was the word “circle” in the clue. Dorothy Parker is best known as a member of the Algonquin Circle.

I still need to see Wall Street

Gary Oldman's best role was in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

I have never heard that usage of "rhubarb"

As Steve Holt once said: "BEATRICE!"

"What country is Duterte President of" seems way overvalued at $1000

It *is* called a "thesis" in some places (including at many Canadian universities, so it's understandable that that's the response Sean went for), but that doesn't have the required Latin root. Also: dissertation-writing is actually kinda fun.

Damn Sean is on fire. Also his spelling reminds me of me in the spelling bees in elementary and middle school.

I think they really should've negged Joan for "Iberian peninsula." The clue was asking for the name of the piece ("Iberia"), not the peninsula.

THEY ALIVE, DAMMIT!

The Cessna Caravan is definitely my favorite single-engine turboprop.

I appreciate Sean's head dancing.

Coryat: $38,000

J: 28R2P. Got DD. 5/5 on Studying, Shakespeare (surprisingly), Oscar Winners, and Presidents. 4/5 on Dictionary Definitions and Everything Else.

DJ: 21R6P1W. Got both DDs. 5/5 on French Music and Flying Cars. 3/3 on Spellements. 3/5 on Valleys (I guessed the wrong type of booze) and 2 Consonants. 2/5 on Recent TV.

FJ: Nope. I blurted out Gertrude Stein just to say something.

If I were being snarky, I might say a librarian should know how to spell Austen, even if it was the wrong answer.

I agree “Iberian Penninsula” should have been negged.

What timing by Joan!. Last place, hardly heard from in the game and a literary clue comes up with an assistant librarian in the lead. Just the way she likes it!

I tried to think of Gertrude Stein's name as a possible literati socialite and couldn't pull it, so I went to Ayn Rand as a favorite Jeopardy punching bag. I don't know who Dorothy Parker is but have seen the name. I actually thought she was a gossip columnist. Stuff from this era like this Algonquin Circle and the Solvay Conferences (Physics, mostly) makes me wonder if there are any modern equivalents going on now that will be envied or admired by later generations. The Davos gatherings maybe?

I'd love to have seen the bag of tricks in the other spellements - maybe Fluorine or Yttrium for the spelling, or Antimony, Iron, or Lead for the deception (Sb,Fe, Pb)? But once the Canadian spelling of Cadmimum came up, the category was toxic. Will our Canadians back up Alex's comment about how pupils spell words aloud with such deliberation? I'm still saying PO-TAY-TOE, thanks to Emma :).

For the bewildered, "rhubarb" seems to me to be associated with baseball sportswriting from the Golden era. This is another one for the super seniors. I got my first driver's license in a 1965 LeSabre with a 400 cc engine - some serious Detroit iron!

I worked with a theatre director who always used ‘rhubarb’ to refer to general noise and conversation made by background actors on stage

Instaget, Dorothy Parker!

I'm not much of a subtlety fan. Léon's my pick.

Flipping between Parker and Woolf, but eventually keyed in that they used -writer- not -author- plus Algonquin was a US thing, Woolf was from the UK.
