A meager 3600 here. I stayed clam on Bq, but knew it was something starting with becq and that I'd seen it many times before.

Good episode for 4th podium poll -- even my wife commented during the pre-FJ commercial break, "You'd probably be ahead just on unanswered questions."

Would not have rung in on rood/rude, Hyundai, Thomas Gibson, or Sasha Alexander. Got the rest of the regular clues, with one ambiguity. Would not have rung in on Cape Colony, but guessed correctly and would have answered correctly if forced to on a DD.

The one ambiguity was with the Reti opening. Since it's the first move of the game, the "white" piece is a given and I simply answered "knight." If that led to a BMS, I would have probably answered "king's knight" instead of "white knight," since the Reti is a king-side opening.

If that's counted as a correct, I could have had $13,200 prior to the DD.

The only reason I got "Giselle" was due to a geography mixup. I lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming for three years, then went to Germany for three years, then back to Cheyenne. Two days after our return to Cheyenne, we saw a notice for a concert that looked interesting at "Cheyenne East High School," so we went, only to find out that they had moved the high school while we were gone and the old high school was now the school administration building. "Giselle" was being performed that night, and since we didn't have time to get to the new high school, we shrugged and went to the ballet instead.

Sometimes it's very odd where answers to Jeopardy clues come from.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

10K. Derped Cape Colony by forgetting the category.
Scott Baio & Pam Dawber were my only gets in that category. Gawd I'm getting old... :P

$11,400. Clammed on pawn. Was dialed in on the DD, looking for "Cape C____," but I had NHO Cape Colony.
Sprinkles are for winners.

Ugh... $4600. But come on... Mindy a SnS? Easiest clue in that category by far.

Okay, that would be about equal... Or should have been. I just couldn't recall his name.
