CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: The first player we introduced on our program today is Lewis Black. Not the comedian but an attorney from Utah, who was once the chauffeur for a wolf?

Lewis: I was. I was doing an internship in Washington, D.C., and the congressman that I was working for introduced a bill to do the environmental impact study for reintroducing the gray wolves into Yellowstone. And he wanted to have a wolf on the floor of Congress when he introduced the bill. And my job was to rent the van and meet the wolf handler and the wolf at the airport and drive them around. And so I did. And somewhere I've got photos of me petting the wolf.

Alex: Oh. Good for you.




Alex: Stephanie Stein, editor from Brooklyn, New York. Volunteers with a professional women's hockey team. What position?

Stephanie: I--nobody wants to see me skate, I promise. So I volunteer off the ice, mostly.

Alex: Oh.

Stephanie: I sell raffle tickets and sometimes tickets at the door.

Alex: Have you ever had a desire to get out there and play?

Stephanie: I'm actually learning.

Alex: Oh, really?

Stephanie: Yeah.

Alex: All righty.




Alex: James Holzhauzer is our--Holzhauer. Why do I keep mispronouncing your name?

James: It's a hard name.

Alex: Yeah.

James: Try saying it for 34 years.

Alex: You had a lot of practice. Now, tell me about--your mom had a coupon to go to a beauty parlor.

James: My mom was an extreme couponer before there was a term for it. So when I was six, she had a buy-one-get-one-free perm coupon, and she couldn't find anyone else to take with her, so she took me. And I know where the only existing photo of me with this perm is. And you can only see it with express permission.

Alex: Okay.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Stephanie found the Daily Double on the 19th clue. James had $5,000, Stephanie had $3,600, and Lewis was at $4,200. Stephanie wagered $2,200.

IDIOMS $400: Management consultant Marilyn Loden says she coined this phrase for a barrier to female success in 1978

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
DRESSING BOB'S BURGERS $1000: A tropical fruit offering:
"____ Was a Rolling Stone Burger"

DRESSING BOB'S BURGERS $800: "Jingle ____ ____ Burger"; a "musical" veggie

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
James: $6,600
Stephanie: $6,200
Lewis: $5,000

My apologies to Lewis for not giving him any chance in the April spoiler thread when going off his waving picture had me dismiss him. Lewis was one good break away from winning the game and at no point displayed Anger.

An 18200 Coryat for James showed his game was not firing on all cylinders today. In the FJ! round he might want to spend more time on the clue and less on the shout out even in a runaway. Things can pop into your head 25 seconds into the clue at full concentration.

CELEBRITIES is a good category for me and when it kinds of gets into TV then it's even better. I was done before the music began.

My instincts tell me (though not with a specific recall) that The Goldbergs must have featured the subject for the FJ! clue either in an opening or as a story line for an episode.

On my scoresheet after writing the categories I made a dot below INVENTED & DISCOVERED in the J! round and AMERICAN POETRY & AROUND THE INDIAN OCEAN in the DJ! round. Those were my predictions for the categories with the DDs. I was happy to go 2/3 for the right spots and James seemed to be on the same search path as well.

Had Stephanie slept through the first three games of the taping day and didn't know what she was up against when uncovering a DD in the 2nd row?

James didn't have the same buzzer mojo today.

I said (expletive deleted) Hanoi Jane for FJ? Judges?

Only 27k? What a scrub! Welcome to the ranks of the superchampions, James. Not that there was much doubt. One of these days, he'll miss that big, game-sealing DD and be vulnerable to a FJ miss, I just don't know when.

Not-quite-instaget FJ. There's a video HOF!!??! I'd like to see that list as well.

Not in regular play.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

the old dude cost himself the game by going to a top box to lead off the 2nd round rather than searching for a daily double to keep it away from the champion

Matched Champ and Stephanie in FJ - snaps a streak of 8 straight. Facepalm upon reveal. Both challengers, once again, came across as strong players.

Try this article. Does not have a clip from the episode referenced, but the synopsis sounds vaguely familiar. Have seen many episodes of The Goldbergs myself.

I do know Fonda came up on Reba's sitcom years back as well, I think in a Season 1 episode. Reba knew her, the kids did not.

The two younger contestants got it wrong. The older contestant (and this older person) got it right. I sense a correlation.

Old guy -- missed it. I certainly know of it, but it was never coming to me. Even after Alex said "Work it", I still had no idea who he was talking about.

Also I said "exfil" for "extraction", which I am counting.

Absolutely! 8-)
But how did two contestants come up with Madonna? She doesn't do workout videos and was still unknown in 1982. :?:
