Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone. An unexpectedly difficult Final Jeopardy! on yesterday's program prevented our champion, Eric, from going over the $100,000 mark for his three wins.

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Mitch Rodricks is an attorney from Oakland, California, and I wanna know how you prepared for your appearance here today on Jeopardy!.

Mitch: Well, I have a 4-month-old at home.

Alex: Uh-oh.

Mitch: He was a little bit younger when I found out I was gonna be on the show, and so there was a lot of bouncing and rocking while pretending to buzz in. So it's very possible that at some point during the show you might see me pacing up and down, bouncing and trying to--trying to ring in.

Alex: It's a good way to burp the babies, too.

Mitch: Exactly.

Alex: [Miming burping a baby] Okay, yeah. Go, go, go. All right, great.




Alex Trebek: Alex Miller Murphy, public relations specialist from our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. Tell me about your experience regarding Jeopardy!

Alex Miller Murphy: Well, I'm a lifelong fan of Jeopardy!. On the 1000th episode of Jeopardy!, during Final Jeopardy! when the song started--do-do-do--my mom went into labor with me. So I've--I've been a fan for a long time.

Alex Trebek: As you should.

Alex Miller Murphy: Yes.




Alex: Eric Backes is our champion, ladies and gentlemen, from Round Rock, Texas.

Eric: Yep.

Alex: Tell me about Round Rock. I know nothing about it.

Eric: Well, it's just north of Austin, Texas. I actually just moved there back in July. My wife got a job at the University of Texas down in Austin, and we moved there with our two adorable kids.

Alex: If it's just north of Austin--

Eric: Yes.

Alex: It's a very pretty part of the state, right?

Eric: Yes. They call it the hill country. Yeah, yeah.

Alex: Good.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND

(Alex Miller Murphy: What is Travelocity?)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Eric: $6,000
Mitch: $4,800
Alex: $2,200

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Mitch: $14,400
Eric: $11,100
Alex: $2,600

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
COLORFUL GEOGRAPHY

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Three-quarters for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Mitch: Wager $7,801 to cover Eric, but no more than $9,199 so as not to fall behind Alex's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $2,601.
Eric: You ought to wager between $3,301 (venusian) and $4,500 (martian), thereby safely covering a $0 bet by Mitch.
Alex: Too bad for you, Alex, your score is less than Mitch's score minus Eric's score. Unless they both commit an egregious wagering error, you've no hope of moving into first place. Wager as much as you desire, but remember, you'll have better chances of advancing to second place if you have a larger sum left over on a Triple Stumper.

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
Named for a soldier killed in 1846 at the start of a war, it was in the news again as a port of entry to the U.S. in 2018

FINAL SCORES
Alex: $2,600 - $600 = $2,000 (What is the Rio Grande?) (3rd place: $1,000)
Eric: $11,100 + $3,301 = $14,401 (What is Brownsville?) (4-day champion: $105,602)
Mitch: $14,400 - $9,000 = $5,400 (What is Tijuana) (2nd place: $2,000)

Player Alex’s chat story was about being a lifelong fan of J! as her mom went into labor during the FJ! round of the 1000th episode. I guess that would make her 29 years old?

DD3 was hiding with 6 clues remaining and Eric in control. He went to TV REBOOTS $400 to finish that category and it was an M+ to put Mitch in the lead 14400 to 10000 for Eric.

With Mitch in control and only 13-LETTERS WORDS left he dropped to $1200 for his selection. It was TS and Mitch went for $1600 next. It was E+ and then cringe time for viewers paying attention as Eric asked for the $400 box.

E+ and then the $800 clue. Host Alex had already given the minute warning a while back and it was possible the round might end with the DD not played.

No, E+ for $800 and finally DD3 in the $2000 box. Mitch led 14400 to 12800 and Eric went for the lead with 1700. Eric missed to keep himself in second. It was a tense close to the round.

The FJ! clue had me groan when it was revealed as COLORFUL GEOGRAPHY is bad enough and then it’s really current events? No thank you. I had nothing better than Amarillo to have something colored-related.

Nice sole solve by Eric to make Alex happy getting over the sacred $100,000 mark. Eric's total makes him top dog on the 4x list.

How did we have LTaM in DJ! with 9 clues left... and then still clear the board anyway? Well done.

I recognized nothing in Romantic Comedies for $200. Hugh Grant's name rings no bells. That whole category was entirely alien to me.

Any reason I should know Glencoe is in Scotland?

TripAdvisor cost me the run in Brandimals. I couldn't get "Travelocity" out of my head even after the neg, and knew it was something close to that, but the similarity was jamming my signals.

That whole Wait Tables category was miles over my head. NHO anything in it except amuse-bouche, which I still hold is way too obscure for $200. Do you all just eat at ultra-fancy French restaurants that charge you $400 just to hold a fork or something?!

I thought "traveler" was wide open on the magazine category. I was close but no cigar with "travel".

Roswell was my only miss/NHOI in TV.

Just "Pyramid" should've been accepted.

Lach Trash: The $100,000 Pyramid, counting house

No guess on FJ! The correct response is utterly unfamiliar to me.

This was a good FJ. Very difficult to instaget, but should be able to suss out in 30 seconds. My mental tour of Texas border cities got me to Brownsville well within time. 8-)

Eric had a couple of tough negs and pulled out a tough FJ final. That Napoleon quote was a tough one. For FJ, I don't like the reference to any particular border city being in the news. What was in the news was the ignorance, cruelty and racism of the present administration across all the border cities.

I should have just mentally run the border towns, but fixated on "what color is a surname", and stopped at White. Couldn't come up with a "White Rock", or equivalent, and never made it to Black or Brown (or Puce:)).

I said Pontificating for Pontification. 13 letters, I'm counting it.

Pontificating should have been the desired response, the clue was definitely looking for a verb, I thought. Did Alex say pontification?

OVERVALUED CLUE ALERT: Appalachians at $600

"I read it for the articles."

Different program, but neat coincidence that we got the Pathfinder/Sojourner clue today.

I was worried that Eric's unnecessary full reading of the category title was going to end the game before the second DD.

Coryat: $42,600

J: 22R7P1W. Missed DD. 5/5 on "Urry". 4/5 on Mountains and Valleys (I said "Sonoma" instead of "Napa"), Romantic Comedies, and Quotes. 3/5 on Brandimals. 2/5 on Wait Tables.

DJ: 26R3P1W. 2/2 on DDs. 5/5 on Words, Space Science, and Supreme Court. 4/5 on Magazine and TV. 3/5 on This is 40.

FJ: Instaget

LT: Pathfinder, countinghouse

I had no hope on FJ. I would have needed to start with the soldiers name. Trying only to come up with a port of entry with a color in its name give me too much to work through in only 30 seconds. And brown isn't really a color that was on my radar. I was trying to work through the primary colors in both English and Spanish.

More than one Border City has been in the news lately.

I thought that at the time, but I'm pretty sure AT said pontification. Eric's pressure response of Ecclesiastical (?) is an adjective so I thought maybe the original clue had some twisted syntax.

"Grandstanding verbally & dogmatically, almost as if you were the Pope." Alex definitely said pontification but I said pontificating at the time and thought it made more sense.

Even excellent players eventually lose, and Eric was somewhat fortunate to survive this kind of game that sometimes is their downfall. It will be interesting to see how he does from here. (FWIW, I got FJ! about halfway in; my approach was to think of border towns.)

I've only been skimming JBoard lately so it took a keyword search to determine that someone had already pointed out Eric's resemblance to Fred Willard.

I really should have been able to come up with Brownsville, but I didn't. I suspect there were lots of us in the same boat.

Frankly, I don't remember Brownsville in particular coming up in the whole border story. I feel like I might have come up with it if it didn't have that part in the clue, but I focused on that part, and kept coming out in Arizona instead of Texas.

I have the sense that a lot of people got it just by remembering a border town with a color in it. I was not getting it either way... :roll:
