CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: The first player we introduced on the program today was Sam Corbett from New York. Sam, you'll recall recently on our "Jeopardy!" All-Star Games we had a fantasy league going for that event.

Sam: Absolutely.

Alex: Tell me about your movie fantasy league.

Sam: Well, some friends and I are not-so-big fans of the football, but we really care about the Oscars and movies, so we put together a league where we draft and through the regular season of the box office of the year, we go through all the Oscar-buzzy movies, and it's a tight competition to see who can make it to the Oscars.

Alex: And you do this every year.

Sam: Every year.

Alex: Okay.




Alex: Adrian Goldstein from Oakland, California. Is it true your friends wrote some haikus to help prepare you or bring you luck on "Jeopardy!"?

Adrian: They did. So, my college graduating class has a closed Facebook group, and I didn't want to tell everybody I was going on "Jeopardy!"but I announced it there, because it was exciting, and I wanted to tell people. And so to support me, they started helping me train by writing haikus about common "Jeopardy!" categories.

Alex: Okay. All right, good.




Alex: Barton Wong is our champion. During the big blackout in 2003--this occurred in Toronto, right?

Barton: Yeah.

Alex: And you did some good work. You helped lead people to safety.

Barton: Well, it was basically at the bottom of my uncle's condo and the stairwell. There was no electricity. Stairwell was pitch black. I was the only one equipped with a flashlight. So I led up people up the stairwell like 30, 40 stories, to basically get them to their condos. It was probably the best thing I've ever done for a group of people.

Alex: See, uh, yeah, you're a better person than I am. I would have led them down 35 stories, but I ain't leading you up 35 stories. I ain't gonna make it.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
CHILDREN'S LIT $1000: According to the title of a book by Giles Andreae, these animals "can't dance"

ARCHITECTURE TERMS $1000: This textured plaster used in ancient Greece & Aztec Mexico may not provide much insulation but is a great fire resister
(Adrian: What is...asbestos?)

THE DRY TORTUGAS $600: This 5-letter type of submerged sandbar is plentiful & dangerous in the Tortugas

"PH" ≠ F $800: This type of restaurant has specialized cuts of meat
(Sam: What is a striphouse?)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Sam: $5,000
Adrian: $4,400
Barton: $1,000

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
NOVEL QUOTES

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Four-fifths for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Sam: Wager $15,401 to cover Barton. If you feel like using Shoretegy, try wagering $3,401.
Barton: Your score is within 4/5ths of Sam's, so wager between $2,001 (venusian) and $4,399 (martian), beating Sam's maximum safe bet of the difference between your scores while still covering against a doubled score on Adrian's part.
Adrian: There's no way you can cover a rational wager by Barton, but if Barton decides for some reason to wager everything, you can eke out a win on a Triple Stumper if you wager no more than $4,000.

A boy at the end of this 1952 novel says to the main character, "Say it ain't true, Roy"

Barton had a lot of ways where he left himself trailing for the FJ! round yet ended up with the big payday. One of the biggest was the swing on the "infamy" clue with the too specific.

Barton had first selection for the DJ! round and knew he where to go as he used WORLD LEADERS 1919 for a run worth +7000.

There was an obvious edit for Adrian's wine response being accepted.

The FJ! clue had me take a couple of whiffs as I had to swat away LotF and Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men before realizing I was working too hard. Roy is in the clue. Oh, duh!

Sam at chat time said he is not such a big fan of, "the football" so I had to laugh that he lost the game on a clue about, "the baseball."

Barton has pulled the tough two-peat of a win from 3rd and now from 2nd. The lead has been well within reach both games for the FJ! round. Third time's the charm?

Clue selection has bounced around a bit with times of slight hesitation although I did not think the players were so bad that there needed to be six clues not seen today.

0/5 in Architecture, and only Anne Frank in Women.

No idea how I went 4/5 in the Children's books category. Giraffe was my only miss.

World Leaders was miles over my head. There was a League of Nations?

All but the DD in Pulitzer.

Why was "December 7, 1941" ruled wrong?

Can't say I've heard of "Real Housewives of Orange County".

Let's see. Sounds like "Say it ain't so, Joe" which reminds me of the name Roy Hobbs, which I know from Peanuts, which is from... uh... uh... Crap, I have no freaking clue. Somehow despite knowing "Roy Hobbs" cold, I was never able to match it to anything. Another frustrating "can't connect the last dot" miss for me.

The clue said "every year on this date", so adding a specific year made it wrong.

Instaget FJ. "Say it ain't true, Roy" -> Hobbs -> The Natural, done. Another film I need to watch someday, but haven't gotten around to yet.

How the hell did I know "Roy Hobbs" so clearly, yet never match him to a novel? I knew he was from... something, but not what.

And if you keep overthinking it, you might talk yourself out of it if you're only familiar with the movie.

I would have thought the cinephile Sam would get this one, even though it's a sports movie about the baseball. But maybe he was thinking only about books. I had no idea that The Natural was a book, and especially not from 1952. I've never seen the movie either, to be familiar with the line. I just took a stab with Old Yeller, but zero confidence due to the main character was either the boy or the dog.

Well done, Barton. I don't want to be insulting, but who does his voice and mannerism resemble? I first thought Gilbert Gotfried, but it is also somewhat Jerry Lewis, toned down of course. He is representing well despite the Canadian handicap which shuts him out of some shared cultural and educational experiences.

BTW, Alex mentioned the US dollars not loonies (? - didn't make it out what he said at the closing), just as Mark called it.
Disclaimer - repeated exposure to author's musings may cause befuddlement.

Coryat: 35,600
44 R/2 W
DD: 2/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: stucco, black lung

Welp. Sometimes making a bad wager in FJ! nets you $12,000 more than a good wager would have.

I can only think of one literary/movie character named Roy, so The Natural it is.

I'm surprised they accepted just "quad" rather than quadrangle, given that the clue said the term came from "four corners."

I talked myself out of the Rachel Carson DD because I was under the impression she was younger. I also can never keep the Treaties of Paris and Versailles straight.
