Garden + "terra cotta" immediately brought to mind flowerpots, but "eccentric" quickly helped me find my way gnome.
I wish I hadn't seen that Good Television category. I missed both the $1200 and $2000 clues, giving me a total of $-400 in the category. Then again, Elise hooked up with a $2000 rebound on All the Light We Cannot See
that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. I also absolutely blanked on "proletariat," but at least I had the good sense not to ring in on that one.

I had the "Sung" part for the grandpa of North Korea, but blanked on the easiest part of the name. But "that moonie guy" (Sun Myung Moon) got mixed in my head, and made me clam. Speaking of which, what's the J! convention for certain Asian names? Case-by-case basis? The family name is generally first in China and Korea, so would "Kim" count? Is it "last name" and not "family name", so "Il-Sung" would count? Because either one would be a little weird. (Almost as weird as not needing to specify the full name for Jeff Bezos' wife.) I love the Olympic convention of all-caps for family names when they show the players competing on TV - whether it's the first name or last name.
It should be the family name, Kim, although that should obviously lead to a BMS in this case.
Sprinkles are for winners.
