CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Welcome back. If you were watching our show yesterday, you know that our champion, Rebecca, was on Jeopardy! before. There was a problem in Final Jeopardy! and to be fair to her, we brought her back. Well, the first player we introduced on the program today, Lynn Klyde-Allaman has also been on Jeopardy! before, but in an entirely different and unusual way. Tell the folks.

Lynn: Yes. I was on Jeopardy! in 1968. My mother was pregnant when she was on the show with Art Fleming.

Alex: Well, good for you. Nice to have you here.




Alex: Natasha Go is from Sunnyside, New York. This young lady grew up with how many birds?

Natasha: 13 birds.

Alex: Oh my gosh.

Natasha: Yeah.

Alex: All of the same kind, or...

Natasha: Everything from parrots to parakeets, and I was featured in Bird Talk magazine when I was a kid with all my birds like this.

[Natasha extends her arms.]

Alex: All your birds. Did you have a favorite one?

Natasha: I'll never tell.

[Laughter]

Alex: They're not watching, you know.

Natasha: They'll be watching.

Alex: Okay.




Alex: And now our champion, Rebecca Zoshak. When you were a kid, you had ambitions. But those ambitions in life would change every time you watched a different television show?

Rebecca: Yeah. Well, not every time I watched a show, but when I had a new favorite show. So when it was--I loved Matlock as a child, I wanted to be a lawyer, and then I watched MacGyver a lot and my dad told me that he was probably an engineer, and I should be an engineer. And then I realized it was an issue when I had a lot of interest in becoming a hitman and thought, "Maybe it's the magic of the entertainment industry and not the specific businesses."

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
NEWS OF 2017 $800: Soprano Audrey Luna hit the note known as A above this, a first in Metropolitan Opera history

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND

Natasha: $5,200
Lynn: $4,800

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Rebecca: $13,200
Natasha: $9,000
Lynn: $8,800

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
WORLD GEOGRAPHY

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Two-thirds for first place. Stratton's Dilemma.
Rebecca: Wager $4,801 to cover Natasha.
Natasha: You ought to wager to cover Lynn, but since you cannot win on a Triple Stumper if you do so, you should choose between wagering $0 and maximizing your winnings by betting all $9,000. You are in Stratton's Dilemma, calling for a wager of more than $8,600 (to shut out Lynn) or less than $600 (risking the possibility of being passed from behind by Lynn). Go with the smaller bet if you believe a Triple Stumper is more likely than a singleton miss by Rebecca.
Lynn: Consider risking between $201 and $400. This will top a $0 wager by Natasha while still beating Rebecca on the Triple Stumper (should Rebecca wager to cover Natasha's doubled score).

FINAL JEOPARDY! CLUE
The Greek islands of Lesbos & Rhodes are each about 10 miles from the mainland of this other country

FINAL SCORES
Lynn: $8,800 + $0 = $8,800 (What is Turkey?) (New champion: $8,800)

Rebecca: $13,200 - $4,801 = $8,399 (What is Cyprus?) (2nd place: $2,000)

I’ll consider it appropriate that I ran MIDDLE INITIAL E. since I have one.

“B” PREPARED $1600: This adjective means characteristic of the lord who penned “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage”

Rebecca was correct with adding -ic to the man’s name. I took a neg with adding -esque and now wonder if that gets by the judges as well?

This article is about Lynn’s appearance on the show including her story about her mom on the Fleming version she talked about during chat time: https://www.greeleytribune.com/news/loc ... -jeopardy/

It’s the FJ! round, so I get to take a guess. I wrote the correct place with no real knowledge of where to actually place the Greek islands. My thinking was east was best while wondering about west towards Italy.

That would have been wild if Natasha had bet 200 and activated a 8800 tiebreaker. Instead Lynn got by with her sole solve and zero bet. What would have made me laugh is if Natasha tried to do a Lisa and finished with 8400 and Lynn anticipated that and fell to 8401.

Near-instaget FJ. Not because I knew it cold, but because I figured it was either west or east, and I couldn't remember which Balkan state was closest to the west (and Italy felt like it was too far), so chickened out and picked Turkey. They all count.

My 50-50 was between Turkey and "Macedonia" before deciding that I didn't think Jeopardy wanted to weigh in on the FYROM debate, and went for Turkey instead.

I would have thought the reference to “mainland” in the FJ clue would have steered them away from Malta and Cyprus.

Instaget for me, mainly because I knew Lesbos was very close to Turkey - less sure about Rhodes. I think there was also news coverage in the last couple of years about refugees trying to get across to Lesbos from Turkey as one of the shortest ways to get into an EU country.

I wish I had considered this. I knew Malta is way too far west but I did go for Cyprus.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Instaget. The proximity of some of the Greek islands to the Turkish mainland is part of the reason for their mutual enmity.

the clue mentioned mainland...how does one choose cyprus (an island) as the country? and malta for that matter? even if the mainland was overlooked, malta way to far west to be considered as an answer

I'm not exactly sure what Natasha's reason was for that wager, but she fell short on both ends of the spectrum. She needed to either go $8601 Martian or less than $599 Venusian.

Was that the second Lindbergh clue in a week?

This is precisely what led me to reject these two as possibilities.

I said the same thing. It came up on a Google search, but not necessarily from an academic enough source to pass the judges' muster. I ended up marking it as a clam.

It's odd that Alex chose to break after clue 13.
Sprinkles are for winners.

came home just in time for the final clue. No one remembered Ross Perot is from Texas? :o
FJ--easy peasy. No way that betting the others miss should pay off... but it did. :|

Instead of west or east, I went south to Libya. Doesn't sound like many people got the wrong answer in that direction.

Oh, I went in that direction. I didn't say Libya because Libya must be too far west, since the allies crossed north from that country into Italy. I said Egypt -- didn't the ancient Greeks do a lot of stuff there? -- and realized my mistake too late.
