Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to our show.

Sarah: $0

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Both of our challengers on the program today enjoy strenuous physical activity. Lee May, you are a caver and a rappeller. And where do you do this?

Lee: So, I do a lot of it, uh, down in the Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee area.

Alex: Yeah?

Lee: And most of it's done underground.

Alex: I know, but what--how deep do you go into these caves?

Lee: Um, it--it depends. You know, uh, the deepest one, uh, in the U.S. right now is a little over 600 feet. I'd like to get there one day. It's nice and peaceful, nice and quiet down there.

Alex: And is there water at the bottom of that cave?

Lee: A lot of times there is. A lot of times there's very cold water.

Alex: Yeah. Is it warm as you go further down? I've found that, uh, as you go down a couple of hundred feet, it does tend to get a little warmer.

Lee: It's actually--it's actually usually pretty consistent. It's around, you know, depending where you are in the country, about 50, 55 degrees, so, um, you know, if you're in the winter, it's warm. If you're in the summer, it's cool.

Alex: Okay. Good.




Alex: Now, Ilissa Gold is a scuba diver--went scuba diving in Bora Bora and was not afraid of the sharks. Why not?

Ilissa: The sharks, you know, mostly kept their distance from us. It was the barracudas you had to worry about.

Alex: What would they do?

Ilissa: They were coming up very, very close. It--

Alex: Very aggressive?

Ilissa: Not aggressive, but coming close enough to cause concern.

Alex: Uh-huh. Okay. I'm warned.




Alex: Sarah Olson is a project coordinator from, uh, Southern California who works for a researcher who is working toward achieving a specific purpose with young people. What is that?

Sarah: Yeah, they're trying to reduce smoking. It's a critical age. If you don't become a smoker by the time that you're about 25 or so, you probably will never become one, so that's the time to really try do reduce and get people to not to start taking up the habit.

Alex: And what's the best way to do this? How do you discourage young people who think of it as a sign of maturity, even though they're 13 or 14 years old?

Sarah: You have to kind of change the message and teach them that there are other ways to be cool than smoking.

Alex: Yes.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS $1000: In 1810 Sebastien Erard patented a pedal device for this instrument that changed the pitch of its strings
(Lee: What is the piano?)
(Sarah: What is the guitar?)

IN OLD NEW MEXICO $600: (Kelly of the Clue Crew delivers the clue from Santa Fe, New Mexico.) El Rancho de Las Golondrinas was the last stop before Santa Fe for wagons traveling on this 1,200-mile Spanish-named road from Mexico City; for 300 years, it was the main route into New Mexico
(Alex: And it was known as [*], the Royal Road.)

IN OLD NEW MEXICO $1000: (Kelly of the Clue Crew delivers the clue from Santa Fe, New Mexico.) Spain wouldn't send fine Merino sheep to north America, so the mainstay of colonial textiles were these sheep, still bred today; the name means "coarse" or "rough", & you may know it from a sweet treat with a rough, ribbed texture
(Alex: And those are [*] sheep.)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Lee: $8,000
Ilissa: $2,200
Sarah: $400

Though she had a slow start, her victory was assured when both challengers corrected Alex during their interviews.

I would have thought Lee May would know more about baseball than he did. At least he knew Sandberg was a Cub.

I cringed when Ilisa left $200 on the table in her first round DD, but she made up for it by going all in later, which wound up earning her an extra $1,000 for coming in second.

I sang the Conjunction Junction song during the parts of speech category and was rewarded one clue later with another chance to show off my vocal talents. Not sure what was sadder to me, a Schoolhouse Rock song being a TS or baseball not being finished.

FJ was pretty much an instaget. I knew what he meant, just took me a second to pull the word out.

Wagering comments.....

Sarah-Made the MSB, no problem there.

Illisa-She has to bet big to cover third place, but why leave a dollar behind? There is a greater chance Sarah offers a tie than there is she bets everything.

Lee-He can't win on a TS even if he bets zero, so needs to bet at least $3,200 to cover Sarah's MSBIW score. But by leaving just $500 behind, he puts himself below Illisa's MSBIW score of $799. He can only win on a sole get, but he needs to cover all his bases, though he still would have gotten second on a TS.

Overall, not the best game in the world. Some strange misses, like the foot pedals on the guitar or Saskatchewan at Niagara Falls. (Slowly, I turned........)

It sounded like Alex was about to neg Borgia rather than give a BMS prompt.

Strings made of silk? Bwuh? I WAGged Nylon because it made the most sense to me, what with nylon-string guitars. Silk was never coming to me. At least whiffing with steel guitar for harp at $1000 took some of the sting out. (Harps have pedals?!?)

I managed to forget the category right away on Actors Who Write and blurted out Coen Brothers at $200. Derp. Mel at $600 saved me from a skunk.

I should've run Change, but I clammed on dime, Puerto Rico, and Sacagawea.

Corn is a grain?! I got $400 and $800 in that New Mexico category. Chalk up "churro" as another Spanish word I didn't know the meaning of.

====

0/5 in Provinces, but I clammed on the first two.

I could've actually run that food category, but I clammed the first three and blanked on Melba. Got $2000 though.

Got only the DD in Quotable Plays, but I clammed on $400 since I wasn't sure if that was a play.

Parts of Speech should've been another run, but I got clammy on the first three for no reason. Are we seeing a pattern here?

Overall, I clammed on fourteen right answers tonight, 10 of which were in DJ! Repeated negging will do that to you.

Hey, I've heard that quote. Democracy.

Harps do have pedals (certainly moreso than guitars ....)

Yes, that other Lee May was a Major League Baseball player for the Reds, Astros, Orioles and Royals.

Picked up Lach trash on "Ernie Banks" and "Bobby Thomson". I wished they had revealed the other two Baseball 1950s clues.

Didn't get FJ.

Like Bamaman, I also used Schoolhouse Rock to my advantage.

I hope he got the other two Alabama references on the show -- "The Miracle Worker" and Hank Aaron.

I don't blame the contestants for their lack of baseball knowledge, but man, I wish that I could have gone up against them in that category.

"Royal Road" and "churro sheep" seemed so random. Neither of those rang a bell at all.

That "Schoolhouse Rock/adverbs" clue was cute. I had no idea on the correct response when I saw the clue, but then it was an "oh yeah, duh" moment. And I also fell for "adjectives" on the "conjunctions" clue. That one was another forehead slapper.

I am still kicking myself for not pulling "Carlota."

I made the lucky guess on FJ. I had no idea how to parse the clue, so I just went with the most obvious.

Sarah is an absolute beast in the Literature categories, and she also did very well in the food category. She is very hot and cold across categories and it seems like she has been able to win just by capitalizing on the 1-2 hot categories she gets each round. It has worked so far, but it will be very hard for her to keep that up.

The clue referenced a Japanese koto, a type of zither. It made no mention of China.

I got silk because I figured this is an ancient instrument and nylon is a rather recent invention. Nylon never crossed my mind.

If I'm adding up my Lach trash, can I count the two baseball clues I'd have gotten if they'd finished the category?

And Lee mentioned spelunking in Alabama. A good night for the yellowhammer state, much better than the football game last night.

Glad I wasn't the only one who started singing "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here!". Thanks for posting that.

Add me to the list of people who ran what there was of the baseball category and was sad that we missed out on two clues.

I don't know whether I would have buzzed in on "churro", since I had no idea that it's a variety of sheep, but I couldn't figure out what else the clue could possibly be referring to.

"Juana la Loca" is a lot more fun to say than "Joan the Mad".

Sarah seems not to get rattled easily--I think it really helped her today.

Abundance could be spelled abundanse without changing the pronunciation, so beans should have been accepted.

Regardless of the "controversy" surrounding that... the wording of the clue was NASTY negbait, imho.

Innnnnnnn-dubitablyyyyyyyyy.

I actually yelled "Get off my TV!" when Lee May guessed Sandberg. That was just cosmically wrong.
Life IS pain, Princess. Anyone telling you differently is selling something.
