CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: As a teenager, Hillary Huttenhower was a licensed skydiver, but now she is a competitive ballroom dancer.

Hillary: This is true. I've been ballroom dancing since I was in college, so over 10 years at this point. And I like to tell people the story, uh, my husband Justin, that's how he knew when he really liked me when we were dating is he started taking dance lessons so that he could dance with me.

Alex: That's the ultimate sign of love and respect for your mate, isn't it?

Hillary: Well, he did a lovely job.

Alex: Okay, good for you.




Alex: Aric Wiest from Kansas City, Missouri. You have done something no other contestant on Jeopardy! has ever done and it has to do with Kazakhstan.

Aric: Kazakhstan. I got to visit some friends in Kazakhstan. And one of them lives down in a small town called Turgen near the mountains and got to ride some of her horses out there.

Alex: And those are special horses, aren't they, in that part of the world?

Aric: Yeah, they--they are and, uh, I was about--probably about twice as big as the kids that were out in the mountains taking care of them. So, mine, after about half an hour, she just went right back to the corral. I just tied her off and I said, "That was--that's enough."

Alex: Hey, it's food--it's feeding time.

Aric: That's right.

Alex: They know.




Alex: All right, let's deal with our champion now, Caitlin Malcuit. Speaking of animals...

Caitlin: Mm-hmm.

Alex: You have a dream about animals, smaller ones.

Caitlin: I sure do. I'd love to own, um, lots of miniature animals, miniature horses, alpacas, donkeys...

Alex: What about the, uh, miniature pigs?

Caitlin: Oh, yeah, yeah, mini pigs, definitely.

Alex: Okay, well, if you earn enough money on our program, then you can afford to buy a mini pig.

Caitlin: Teacup pig, yup.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Aric found the Daily Double on the 27th clue. Caitlin had $2,600, Aric had $3,800, and Hillary was at $5,000. Aric wagered $1,300.

LITERARY TERMS $800: Parody makes fun of a literary style; this other 6-letter term makes fun of human weaknesses
(Aric: What is folly?)

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
"I" LAND HOPPING $1000: It was created from 3 Ottoman provinces shortly after World War I

EYEBROW-BEATING YOU $600: Seen here are the brows of this sage of Sunday night television

[The end-of-round signal sounds.]

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Hillary: $16,200
Aric: $9,900
Caitlin: $1,400

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
ARTISTS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Crush for first place.
Hillary: Wager $3,601 to cover Aric, but no more than $13,399 so as not to fall behind Caitlin's doubled score.
Aric: You have the hope of surpassing Hillary if you come up with the correct response. Bet at least $6,301 and as much as $7,100 to force Hillary to wager to win while still protecting your second place position from being usurped by Caitlin.
Caitlin: Unfortunately, your score is less than the difference between the scores of the first and second place players, so unless they both blunder, you're competing for second place and have no hopes of first. 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
Illustrations by this man show why his name has become the standard for children's book artistry

I think this will go down in history as the week of the champions who couldn't. And how nice of AT to namecheck two of our champion group members, Arthur Chu and Julia Collins, and only them.

Would they have accepted my answer of "baud rate" for "bandwidth"?
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

This game was better than the first two this week, but a bunch of triple stumpers, especially in Double Jeopardy! Hillary ran the TV category to start the game and looked impressive, but then had to hold off a challenge from Aric to win. I got 27 clues correct including Iraq, Andy Rooney, satire (DD), High Noon, Bemidji, rugs, and Painted Desert. I had no guess in FJ.

Don't know if "they" would have, but I wouldn't. They are related, but are measurements of different things.

All those years of plowing through Caldecott Award winning books as a child, and I never knew he was an illustrator!! Man, I would've bet the farm on this category and had a VERY red face at the reveal. I'm surprised (based on my own ignorance, of course) that it was a triple get!

I was happy to run the eyebrow category, though. Precalled Eugene Levy and Joan Crawford, but forgot how majestic Brezhnev's brows were.

I enjoyed this game. The only triple stumper that I remember surprising me was High Noon. I got "Painted Desert," but I thought that that clue needed more TOM.

Talk about over thinking the FJ clue. I spent the entire 30 seconds trying to think of a famous painter who would have created an image that looked like that. It turned out that the image wasn't even needed; all I had to do was name the medal for children's book illustrations!

Thomas Beckett tends to pop up from time to time, I remember that he was also a DD response from this past spring.

Lach Trash: Iraq, Andy Rooney, Thomas Beckett.

I guess this group was too young to remember Andy Rooney's famous eyebrows. I thought for sure that NBA basketball player Anthony Davis would also appear in that category.

Got FJ, after a bit of a cold streak these past few games. I knew Caldecott from studying up on children's lit & I tend to focus on awards.

Friend of mine dressed up as Frida Kahlo for Halloween complete with massive unibrow. Good timing, because in the movie, Salma made it difficult to notice the eyebrows. :twisted:

Have to admit Caldecott never came to mind -- I had completely forgotten he was an illustrator. I ended up going with Tenniel.

4/5 in Rhyme Time; couldn't pull fragrant vagrant.

0/5 in Tasty Italians. I thought gnocchi was by far the easiest.

Never heard of any of those TV shows.

Navajo rug/blanket seemed like a real trap clue. Don't they weave both?

"I" Land should've been 4/5 for me, but I could only get Indonesia in time.

Should've run literary too, but my brain was slowing down already and I could only get $200 and $600.

Lach Trash with Bemidji. Funny names stick with me.

Odd that $400 was the only TS in Films of the 1950s, as it was the only one I had an inkling on.

No guess on FJ! I've heard of the Caldecott Award but had no idea who Caldecott was.

The only reason I got "Painted Desert" was because the orchestra I'm in just played Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite, of which "Painted Desert" is one of the movements.

For FJ, I was flipping Caldecott and Newbery (sp?) -- knew they were children's book awards, one for writing and the other for illustrating. Went with the right one.

I've been to the Hubbell Trading Post, and living in New Mexico, you can't not know about those beautiful Navajo rugs.

It took a few seconds, but I came up with Caldecott. I don't think I've seen one of his illustrations before tonight's clue, though.

I had heard of the medal, but had no idea who he was. Wrote down Winslow Homer just to have something.

Did they say the ballet dancer's last name was that of a czar?

Unlike the last two days, I think this champ may repeat.

This is why I answered "Godunov" since that's the only last name of a Czar I know! (Don't know the ballet dancer at all)

Jeopardy! is promoting them - for different reasons, but they are the names most people are expected to know/remember. I didn't hear too many complaints about the Ken-hyping (and, to a lesser extent, Brad-hyping) in the BOD ads. I'm not too upset because I know how J! works.
TenPoundHammer wrote: Lach Trash with Bemidji.
Same Lach Trash here, but it's because we've been there many times (one of the most visited US places we've been to, actually) - the source of the Mississippi is very close to there (Bemidji is the first town of any considerable size on the Mississippi), which we also make a point of visiting and camping at when we're down there, and there's also a giant statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe in the town, along with several Paul Bunyan themed museums and other places. It may be the history and geography geek in me, but I highly recommend a visit to Lake Itasca and Bemidji (and, while you're at it, pop up and see me!)

30 right.

Eye- 5; TV- 3; "I"- 3; Lit- 4; Rhyme- 3; Tasty- 2
Tech- 1; 1950s- 3; Quote- 4; Ballet- 1; Park- 0; "DJ"- 1

Lach trash: "Andy Rooney", "satire" (DD), "High Noon", "Thomas Becket" (DD)

The only person I thought of for FJ, based on the style, was Robert McCloskey. It turns out that Make Way for Ducklings did win a Caldecott Medal; I've heard of the medal, but not enough to recall it or him.
