CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Tony Knechtges is an engineering manager from Grafton, Ohio, who proposed to his wife in a very romantic setting, I believe.

Tony: I did. Some friends of ours were having a destination wedding on an island off Belize, and one day while we were down there, I somehow convinced her to get in a kayak with me, and she let me paddle her out two or three miles from shore to a sandbar, where I proposed to her.

Alex: And what was the deal in your mind? If she says no, you paddle back alone?
[ laughter ]

Tony: Well, some people have suggested that's why she said yes.
[ laughter ]
Alex: Okay.




Alex: Kirsten Albair is a jeweler from Caribou, Maine.

Kirsten: Yes.

Alex: Hometown girl who is very loyal to her hometown. Tell me what you're doing.

Kirsten: Well, what I have done is to participate in writing a history of Caribou, which was published in 2009, the year of our sesquicentennial. And in the course of doing that, I was able to write biographies of more than 50 past or current residents of the town.

Alex: Does this mean you're up on all of the gossip and all of the goings-on of the people in Caribou? Ccause it's not a big place, is it?

Kirsten: It is not very large, but I'm afraid I don't know much gossip. But I do know most of the people, so that's better.

Alex: All right.




Alex: Arthur Chu. You're doing voice-over work. We keep introducing you as a voice-over performer. And what are you working on right now, a web series?

Arthur: Yes, it's a web series online. It's video versions of comics that have been going on for a while.

Alex: Do one voice.

Arthur: [ deep voice ] I was looking forward to making "Jeopardy!" bend to my will. [ high-pitched voice ] but I'm just so excited to be here.
[ laughter ]

Alex: Scared the daylights out of me.
[ applause ]

What did Artur say that caused him to lose the daily double? Also, what did Artur say when he mumbled something after saying the correct response to a question?

I wonder if one of today's contestants got a stern talking-to from Maggie after the game. I also wonder if they apologized to Alex.
This should be an interesting read on the archive. Best wishes to the person who gets to transcribe it.

Hmmmmm...... so "Catcher in the Rye" is the same as "The Catcher in the Rye?" Because only the latter is technically correct. But I don't know the Jeopardy rules on this, so I'll defer to someone who does.

Arthur's misfiring a bit more lately (e.g. accidentally duplicating "freefall"), but he's still rebounding when it really counts.

====

Ran Snack with ease.

Romaine was my only miss in "R"andom House. I WAGged raddichio and had an "oh, duh, pick the only kind of lettuce you know".

DD in Nonfiction was the easiest clue in the category by far. Arthur should be glad they threw him a bone there.

Walrus was an easy neg on Teeth for $600. Even after the other the other negs, I was completely lost. I wouldn't

I thought "Free agency" was undervalued at $400. Lucasfilm was way overvalued at $2000.

Guinness for $1600 seemed like a shot in the dark. Chihuahua? Teacup poodle? Yorkie? Also saw no way to get "high heels" at $1200. Robot at $800 was easy to overthink.

Lach Trash: Razorback (how was that a TS?), Freewheeling.

"What the heck tourist city is in Missouri?!?" Again, I'm an idiot.

We might've cleared DJ! if Alex and Arthur hadn't gotten so gabby on the Gerry clue.

I would've loved to see if the whole Album category would've been stand-and-stare had they finished it. Seems like they had a lot of stand-and-stares the last time

And for the 7th day in a row, I didn't even have a guess. "Hmm, people falling off a cliff. Catch… Catch… What the hell book has 'catch' in it? I got nothing." Even though I'm very well aware that The Catcher in the Rye is a book, and I could've just as easily latched onto Catch-22 as a wrong but not entirely unforgiveable response…

He said Francis McDarmond instead of Francis McDormand - must really suck to lose $10k over a single letter...

For the second one, Alex corrected his pronunciation of VP Elbridge Gerry (actually pronounced with hard-g) and Arthur tried to reason that he was going off of "gerrymandering" but Alex swatted that away.

Meh. I'm trying very hard to be respectful of anyone smart enough to pass the test and make it on the show...but these last few games haven't been very interesting to watch. Missed DDs, bad/careless negs, stand-and-stares galore, and somehow no one has made him pay for his mistakes. 11 games worth of him hunting down DDs and draining the board of high value clues, and when the challengers get control, sometimes for a few clues at a time, even when down multiple thousands with time running out, they still take them top-to-bottom. They're barely putting up a fight.

Arthur did much better in the DJ! round than in the J! round. He had more wrong answers than usual, but he still won. He's really a superb player.

Picked up Lach trash: "Rainbow Bridge", "razorback", "hippopotamus", "robot"

Didn't get FJ.

After Arthur correctly said Gerry ("Jerry"), Alex corrected his pronunciation (it's said like "Gary"), then Arthur said "well, like Gerrymandering..." and Alex replied "Well, it's one of those things in English..."

Perhaps Arthur was a little ticked off because the next response was Sam Waterston, which Arthur enunciated very slowly and deliberately.

Picked up Lach trash on Spike Lee and Razorback. Did not get FJ.

To be fair, the first few games of his run were all close to the end and exciting but I agree, the last 4-5 games have been pretty ugly and occasionally frustrating to watch.

They seem to just give up when he catches them, as if there were an air of inevitability in the room. A killer player is needed.

Finally a game in which my Coryat is better than my average. My first such game in a while.

Among the Lach Trash I picked up was "Wish You Were Here" and "Freewheeling" in reference to Bob Dylan, causing me to say "I guess none of the three of you are big classic rock fans."

I knew the correct pronunciation of "McDormand", but I actually would have gotten "Waterston" wrong (I erroneously thought it was "Waterson" without the second T).

I got FJ quickly without "knowing" it per se. How would you rescue people falling off a cliff? By catching them. The 1951 date sounded about right, and I could see Holden Caulfield as being more heroic in his imagination than in his daily life.

Arthur was funny when he deliberately pronounced Sam Waterston after being penalized on Francis McDarmund. If it came out "Waterson", Alex would not have accepted the answer.

The McDormand daily double was obviously edited. It makes me wonder what happened behind-the-scenes. I can easily see Alex just quickly saying, "Correct," but then production staff running up on stage to correct it. Visioning that, I can see why Arthur would be upset, just from the psychological impact of it and feeling like it was unfair (as opposed to if his 'mispronunciation' was so completely off that Alex instantly rejected it).

FWIW... there was another contestant who said "Cracker Jacks" in the clue about Take Me Out to the Ball Game even though the correct lyric is "Cracker Jack." But I guess since the clue was looking for the product name and not the exact lyric, that's acceptable.

The judges will not penalize you for leaving off the "The" at the beginning of the title unless there is another book called "Catcher in the Rye". The example that Maggie uses is the 2 different books titled "Invisible Man" and "The Invisible Man" which would not be interchangeable.

The product name is "Cracker Jack." It's become common parlance to use the plural version in the song, also substituting ever for never in "I don't care if I ever get back." I've even seen "Cracker Jacks" displayed on an MLB scoreboard with the rest of the lyrics during the 7th inning stretch when the song is sung.

It really sounded like Arthur said "Freeman's Bureau" and then corrected it when Alex asked him to repeat it. (Full disclosure: I had trouble remembering which it was, but did "ring in" with the right one.)

I randomly visited the Museum of Natural History today after flying a kite on the National Mall, so I especially enjoyed the T-Rex and sabertoothed tiger clues in the tooth category.

Instaget FJ that had me yelling, "You're really asking this? This is an $800 clue!"

I know Cracker Jack is the product name but there is always more leniency when the response is just the name of a product/item ("what are watermelons?" is just fine if the expected response is "what is a watermelon?") But if they're looking for an exact quotation from a song or otherwise, I'd think it would be more strict.

Given what you said, though, I guess they would probably have accepted it even if they were looking for the exact lyric.
