OPENING REMARKS
Alex: Thank you, Johnny. And thank you, ladies and gentlemen. And welcome, everyone. We don't keep records on this, but I do believe that on yesterday's program, we had more ties than on any other show that I can recall. It made it more excited.

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Barton Wong, as you heard in the introductions, is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. And this young man has developed an interest in religions. Tell me about that.

Barton: Well, you know, it's something I've always wanted to be interested in and something that--I want to see how people believe and why they believe it. So I definitely--If I win any money here, I would like to definitely take a pilgrimage to places of religious sites, such as Jerusalem, Rome, India, Bali. Just something that I've always wanted to do and never had a chance to do it.

Alex: Okay. Good for you.




Alex: Evan Sroka is from Santa Monica. Planned a wonderful 10th wedding anniversary trip. To?

Evan: Yeah, last May I took my wife to Japan. We went to Tokyo and Kyoto. But the catch was that she didn't know where we were going until we got to the airport. I actually told her the wrong gate, and she walked over and said, "Wait a second. Dallas? That doesn't really seem like the place where we're going." I said, "No, we gotta walk back 50 feet."Wound up being a wonderful trip.

Alex: And I'm sure you will agree that that was not a put-down of Dallas.

Evan: No. Not at all. It was not Tokyo.

Alex: All right.




Alex: Elaine Wilson is a layout artist from Virginia. And it says here that you've saved every ticket you've used since you were a teenager. Tickets to what?

Elaine: Movies. Concerts. Museums. Theme parks. The first one that I saved on purpose was my ticket stub from "Wayne's World" in 1992. I saw it on spring break.

Alex: Good for you.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP $400: (Jimmy of the Clue Crew delivers the clue from Paisley Park):

Guitar picks and tote bags at Paisley Park feature this symbol that combines the male and female gender signs and was Prince's name for a period of time during a contract dispute

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP $1000: (Sarah of the Clue Crew delivers the clue from the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA):

The Eric Carle Museum has temporary tattoos of some of the animals in Carle's first book, the ones who ask this creature, "What do you see?"
(Elaine: What is The Very Hungry Caterpillar?)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Elaine: $4,600
Evan: $4,200
Barton: $3,600

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Elaine: $13,800
Evan: $12,400
Barton: $11,600

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
20th CENTURY HISTORY

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Elaine: Wager $11,001 to cover Evan.
Evan: You ought to wager to cover Barton, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you ought to choose between wagering $0 or maximizing your winnings with a bet of all $12,400. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $10,800 (to shut out Barton) or less than $9,600 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Barton). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Elaine.
Barton: You ought to try wagering between $801 and $8,800. This will top a $0 wager by Evan while still beating Elaine and Evan on the Triple Stumper (should Elaine wager to cover Evan's doubled score and Evan wager to cover your doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
Constructed in the 1930s, it extended from La Ferté to the Rhine River, though it also had sections along the Italian frontier

FINAL SCORES
Barton: $11,600 + $11,600 = $23,200 (What is the Maginot Line?) (New champion: $23,200)
Evan: $12,400 - $11,000 = $1,400 (What is the Deutsche bahn) (3rd place: $1,000)
Elaine: $13,800 - $1,000 = $12,800 (What is the Autobahn) (2nd place: $2,000)
(Alex: It was a defense but not a particularly good one.)
...
(Elaine: Went for laughs.)
(Alex: Went for laughs. Well, you got some.)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $11,000

Elaine has halfway to making her low FJ! wager work with Evan missing. Barton (first contestant in the Archive with that name) foiled her plans with the sole solve.

I matched Elaine's FJ! response although I was not going for laughs like she declared. I had nothing better until time was up and Alex said, "defense" before going to Barton. Nice but meaningless as I wrote the correct name on my paper.

What are the odds that Alex opens with a remark tomorrow about Barton's winnings in Canadian dollars?

Ran Colorful Bands and Feelings.

I had no idea that Prince's symbol had a name. Poll request?

Any reason I should know that top box was "ravine"?

No guess on FJ! Absolutely NHOI.

Neither did I. I'll second that poll req, even though I have the sneaking suspicion it'll poll suprisingly high.

Only reason I knew Chavez Ravine is because of Dodger Stadium.

Built in the 1930s + geographical hints towards the French border? Instaget FJ.

The Prince clue can work without fussing with the images, so perhaps I can meet that request. I did not get it either.

Yes, the ravine clue was really a sports one.

For whatever reason, baseball stories used to refer to Dodger Stadium or the home of the Dodgers as "Chavez Ravine". It seems to have played out and I haven't seen it in decades. TIL that it is named for Cesar Chavez, which seems reverse anachronistic to me as I associate the stadium to the early 1960's, and early in the UFW movement, which I think of through the whole decade.

I would have confidently rang in on the symbol with "What is TAFKAP". It was my understanding he made up the symbol, and assumed "The Artist Formerly Known As Prince".

I could hear some boardies' neck veins bulging at Evan's slow clue calling. It's like he didn't know that the winner of the last clue chooses next.

I got FJ easily due to a history prof that was obsessed with the story of the Maginot line. In retrospect, both the AutoBahn and Train lines were decent guesses.

13,000 + Air Force Bases? Tough clue for the average Joe, in retrospect. Gotta remember our privilege.

SMH. I'm not sure what the clue said to make me jump the shark like that :oops: . Next you are going to tell me that Silicon(e) Valley wasn't named as an homage to Carol Doda. (you youngsters look that up in your Funk and Wagnall).

Good to see three evenly matched contestants all do well enough to go into FJ over $10K.

LT: pneumonic, crawdad, Henry Clay, Adirondacks.

And instaget FJ.

I was reminded in this game of the old joke (yeah, pretty much everything reminds me of an old joke): Why were all the other dinosaurs unable to hear the pterodactyl urinating?



Because the "P" was silent.

OK, I'll go to my room now.

Nah, I think you still hear it referred to as Chavez Ravine from time to time. It's even mentioned in the very first sentence of the stadium's Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodger_Stadium

Coryat: 38,000
50 R/1 W
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: 1620 (DD), Love Symbol, pneumonic, crawdads, Henry Clay

I knew it because it happens to be in my wheelhouse, but "Love Symbol," particularly in the middle of the board, was really hard. Like others, I expected the clue to look for "Prince," "TAFKAP," or "male and female symbols" as the correct response.

It was interesting that there were clues in adjacent categories about Flea and fleas. Likewise, it was great that Elaine got the clue about Deep Purple.
Sprinkles are for winners.
