CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Trevor Crowell is a Spanish teacher from Mountain View, California. Now, Trevor, many people have had their cars stolen. But not many people have had to endure what you experienced.

Trevor: This is true. Yeah, when I was in college, my car was stolen, my beloved 1998 Honda Civic. I thought that was the end of the road for me and my car, but I got a call from the police about a month later. They said, "Trevor, come down and pick up your car. We found it." I was amazed. I went down, I had the key in my hand, and the police officer said, "Wait a minute, did insurance pay you already?" I said, "Oh, yeah, they did." He said, "Not your car. It belongs to the insurance company, but don't worry. You can just buy it back from them." I called, and I said, "Okay, they found the car, I'd like to buy it back." They said, "No, can't sell it to you, but it's going up on auction in two weeks. Go to the auction. You can bid on it." So with the help of my mom, we went to the auction. I bid on my car, and I bought my stolen car back at auction.

[Laughter]

Alex: And did you save money on the whole deal?

Trevor: Money, yes.




Alex: Matthew Bunch is a middle school civics teacher from Miami, Florida.

Matthew: Yes, sir.

Alex: Civics.

Matthew: Yes.

Alex: A very ignored subject in this day and age for some reason.

Matthew: Yes. It's been--it's one of the reasons why I gravitated toward the topic in the first place is that I feel it has--every subject in school has real-life applications. But I definitely feel like it has many real-life applications that many Americans and people around the world don't appreciate, so it's right where I went to.

Alex: Okay. Good for you.




Alex: Tara Baxter is from Tucson. High school English teacher.

Tara: Yes, sir.

Alex: With, it says here, a laid-back teaching style. What does that mean, Tara?

Tara: I'm considered the cool teacher at my school.

Alex: Yeah? Why?

Tara: I've done a lot of things before I became a teacher. And--like, I served in the military, I was a sportswriter, so my students really like to talk to me about my experiences, and it's not just academics in my--

Alex: Yeah, so you have a background before the teaching

Tara: Absolutely.

Alex: All right. Good for you.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Trevor found the Daily Double on the 30th clue. Tara had $3,000, Matthew had $6,400, and Trevor was at $5,000. Trevor wagered $2,000.

To curate the best images, music & messages to put on the two golden records, time capsules of info about Earth the two Voyagers would send outside the solar system, the project created a committee headed by this astronomer & author

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Trevor: $15,600
Matthew: $12,400
Tara: $1,000

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
TEACHERS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Three-quarters for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Trevor: Wager $9,201 to cover Matthew, but no more than $13,599 so as not to fall behind Tara's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $7,201.
Matthew: You ought to wager between $3,201 (venusian) and $6,000 (martian), thereby safely covering a $0 bet by Trevor.
Tara: Too bad for you, Tara, your score is less than Trevor's score minus Matthew'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
As a teenager this woman regained her sight thanks to 2 surgeries in 1881 & 1882

FINAL SCORES
Tara: $1,000 + $1,000 = $2,000 (Who was Annie Sullivan? Hi Star!) (3rd place)
Matthew: $12,400 - $2,800 = $9,600 (Who was ?) (2nd place)
Trevor: $15,600 - $100 = $15,500 (Who is Hellen Keller?) (Automatic semifinalist)
(Alex: [To Tara] Helen Keller's teacher. You are right. And you said hi to who?)
(Tara: Hi to my students. They're amazing.)

THE JET PROPULSION LABORATORY $600: (Sarah of the Clue Crew presents from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.) JPL's Juno probe needed a boost to get to its target; scientists designed its trajectory to come back to Earth & then use our gravity to slingshot to this planet, Juno's husband in mythology

THE JET PROPULSION LABORATORY $800: (Sarah of the Clue Crew presents from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.) In 2017 JPL was able to restart long-dormant thrusters on Voyager 1; that helped reorient the spacecraft, so it can maintain communication from 13 billion miles away in this 12-letter space between solar systems

ACTORS NOT ACTING $1200: In 2007 Chazz Palminteri brought this outer-borough story to Broadway; he's also got a restaurant on West 46th Street

IN THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK $800: No kid is going to have this in school, even if it is the body spray as opposed to the weapon

I took the neg with mace although now I’m wondering if the judges would give me a reversal?

So much for no shout-outs as Tara included a greeting to her students by naming the school where she teaches.

The FJ! clue had my pen never moving. Not because I missed it, but because I had already written down the correct response off the category. Nothing in the clue gave me a hint of Maria Montessori, so there was nothing to do but wait to see if anyone gave the incorrect response that Trevor ended up writing.

Too bad for Tara that her sole solve did little to give her much chance of making it to next week. She had several unforced errors that lowered her score needlessly.

Are we certain this was taped after the rule was supposedly enforced? And we probably don't really know if TPTB give the contestants in this tournament the same spiel. But yeah, a little surprising.

Frustrating and sad that two teacher's didn't know FJ. One of the most influential happenings in the profession and probably the reason why many actually get into teaching.

Round number DD wagering, 2nd place guessing what the cutoff will be and falling just short of the leader's current total. Low Coryats. And there are many who will enjoy this more than a dominating champ.

Do we know that the "No shoutouts" rule was a hard and fast thing? Maybe they just told James to dial it back since it was slowing things down.

I guessed FJ correctly. I hadn't heard that part of her history before, but what else could it be? I do need to watch that movie sometime.

Off the FJ category, my first thought was Socrates. But I figured that was unlikely since we'd had a Plato clue. My second thought was Anne Sullivan. When I saw the clue I wasn't sure if that was right since I didn't know Sullivan's pre-HK biography at all. I briefly thought about switching to Mary Ingalls who, I at least knew, went blind. But I never heard that she recovered or that she became a famous teacher. So I stuck with Annie S.

Part of me wants to say "who cares what other people find enjoying", while another part of me fails to understand why some people would rather watch a 10-9 baseball game than a 1-0 pitcher's duel.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I raise an objection to the "Extras" question. David Bowie made up a song about Ricky Gervais' character Andy Millman, not Gervais himself.

eta: (idiot statement removed about Monday's game, thanks econgator)

I'm glad to have a break from Holzhaur Fatigue Syndrome, but I'd rather these tourneys just start with 9 teachers and end in one week. Seeing 6 extra teachers isn't worth the second week in the format - go ahead and jam another tourney in there - maybe an all redhead week or something.

The FJ reminded me of high school when I knew everything except the answer. Yeah, Helen Keller's teacher. The Miracle Worker lady. I didn't know about her blindness and am dumbfounded that 1880's medicine was able to improve her eyesight.

Possibly a relevant toon here: (still learning the pipes and tubes)

Maybe it was just the categories, but I found today's game difficult. FJ was pretty much WECIB?, though.

Well, James said it started being a rule last week, and Alex said yesterday we're getting two weeks off from James, so either this was taped after the regular shows preceding it, or TPTB said, "Screw it, he'll probably keep winning, so we'll mention him just in case and edit it out if he he loses before this is supposed to air." I'm assuming the former. But yes, perhaps you're right in your second sentence.

Man, if I didn't know enough about the orchestra that I thought the concertmaster plays piano and an oboe is 4-1/2 feet long, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't ring in (just the way I really don't ring in at home when they are reading clues in my most horrid categories). That just made me sad.

It's nice to be back getting some LT now and then: mudpack, snow-pack, grasshopper, Metamorphoses, bassoon.

My first thought was Montessori. Certainly never heard that particular part of the Annie Sullivan story, and thought this seemed plausible: a medical doctor who became a teacher, after all. Fortunately had second thoughts and reached Sullivan.

Man, I keep telling myself that if I ever get on J! I am REALLY going to have to brush up on Central America. I don't know why that's such a blind spot for me.

Congrats to Trevor for advancing, and at this point I'd bet Matthew is moving on as well.

Count me as another who precalled AS and Socrates, then immediately discarded Socrates based on the earlier Plato clue.

Do contestants for the teacher's tournament need to pass one of the same audition tests as the rest of us? It seemed like there was a surprising number of egregious errors and stand-and-stares in this episode.

I was really surprised there wasn't a reversal on chimes. They're absolutely the same thing as tubular bells. I work for a music publisher, and our house style uses the term chimes.

I think they would have had to accept Edmund Muskie as running mate for Hubert Humphrey. They didn't say that the person in the clue was presidential or VP candidate.

Now it would be pushing it for them to accept Roger Moe, who was running mate of Hubert Humphrey III when he ran for governor of Minnesota (and lost to Jesse "The Body" Ventura).
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

(Alex: We'll give you the running mate. You tell us who the other person on the ticket was.)
