But Buzzy came up with the correct response and made a savvy wager to wind up as a 2-day champion. What's gonna happen today with Ellen and Joe? We'll start finding out right now. Good luck.

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Joe Indiviglia is from Southern California. And he and his friends are training now for something that I have never heard of. What is it?

Joe: It's called the Kanjam World Championship.

Alex: Right.

Joe: And this is a game you play. It's four people. You have a partner who stands about 50 feet away from you. You're throwing a Frisbee into an open can. It's got a slot in the front as well. If you get the Frisbee in, you win the game. Your friend can also help you hit it in.

Alex: Is there a prize associated with this?

Joe: Well, you're drinking beer during the game, though, so...

Alex: Oh, hello.

[Laughter]

Alex: Okay. Lot of people do this, huh?

Joe: Uh, a fair amount.

Alex: Okay.

[Laughter]

Alex: Kanjam.

Joe: Kanjam.

Alex: Right.




Alex: Ellen Plitt is an emergency room nurse from St. Louis, Missouri.

Ellen: Yes.

Alex: You and I have both traveled to the same place...

Ellen: Yes.

Alex: ...in the Pacific. The Galápagos.

Ellen: Yes.

Alex: What was your vacation like?

Ellen: Um, it was amazing. We, uh, I went on a trip after senior year of high school to Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands. Spent about 10 days there, 4 on the islands.

Alex: Wow.

Ellen: So we were able to, you know, see a couple of the different islands.

Alex: So one thing you heard quite often, I'm sure, is, "Be careful. Don't step there."

Ellen: Right. Right.

Alex: Right?

[Laughter]

Alex: You have to be careful where you walk.

Ellen: Oh, that's for sure.

Alex: Yeah. Protect the environment.




Alex: Buzzy Cohen is a music executive. He's from Los Angeles. He is our champion. I didn't know you also played piano at Carnegie Hall?

Buzzy: I did, yes. Um, my teacher, when I was growing up, had recitals there, so from about age 9 to 18, every year I would perform at Carnegie Hall.

Alex: Did you get a professional contract, uh, offer out of that?

Buzzy: I never did, and, um... thankful for that.

Alex: I guess you're not--you're not particularly good.

[Laughter]

Buzzy: Good enough for Carnegie Hall.

Alex: Yes. [Laughs]

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Buzzy found the Daily Double on the 23rd clue. Buzzy had $2,600, Ellen had $3,400, and Joe had nothing in the bank. Buzzy wagered $1,200.

MILITARY NICKNAMES $1000: He said his people called him the "Victor of Tampico" but Davy Crockett probably had a few other nicknames for him

SLEUTHS & THEIR CREATORS $400: Jesse Stone &
Spenser (for hire)

SLEUTHS & THEIR CREATORS $800: Adam Dalgliesh

SLEUTHS & THEIR CREATORS $1000: Jane Rizzoli

DOUBLE DOUBLE LETTERS $1000: Withhold from publication, or stop a rebellion

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Buzzy: $13,800
Ellen: $9,600
Joe: $4,000

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
AMERICAN HISTORY

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Two-thirds for first place.
Buzzy: Wager $5,401 to cover Ellen, but no more than $5,799 so as not to fall behind Joe's doubled score.
Ellen: You'll want to wager between $0 (venusian) and $1,200 (martian), and you'll win the game if Buzzy wagers enough and gets it wrong.
Joe: 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
"A stimulus to the courageous", the $25,000 Orteig Prize offer of 1919 resulted in his success 8 years later

FINAL SCORES
Joe: $4,000 + $3,995 = $7,995 (Who is Lindbergh?) (2nd place)
Ellen: $9,600 - $4,201 = $5,399 (Who is) (3rd place)
Buzzy: $13,800 - $5,401 = $8,399 (Who is Scott?) (50003-day champion: $8,399)
(Alex: [To Joe] The nonstop solo flight from America to France.)
...
(Alex: [To Buzzy] Picked the wrong correct response.)

I loved the audible gasp after AT told Buzzy that he must not be very good at piano.
And I loved Buzzy's comeback even more.
Audacious! Loquacious! Voracious!

Only one person got that FJ right? I'm sure Keith will have fun with Ellen's wager.

After a lot of good games lately, this one just seemed flat to me. Joe had too many misses to have a chance to win on his sole get.

Congrats to Buzzy on becoming a three timer.

What was wrong with Ellen's wager? If she got it, she would have $1 more than Buzzy - seemed like a solid bet to me. Am I missing something?

It put her $1 ahead of Buzzy's pre-FJ total. Which is great if he bets zero. Buzzy made the MSB, which left him with $8,399. She already had more than that and had third locked out, so she should have bet no more than $1,200.

Of course, that does leave her open to the possibility that Buzzy will make a small bet to counter that, but that is unlikely.

She only would have had a dollar more than him if he bet zero, which is very unlikely. Had she wagered less than 1200 she would have won 2 out of 4 times, only requiring Buzzy to get it wrong. But because she wagered more than that, she lowered her chances to 1 out 4, requiring Buzzy to get it wrong and her to get it right.

I imagine she was thinking she would get FJ right and betting on Buzzy making the MSB and missing it, but I get what you're saying.

Congrats to Buzzy on his third win. I had 45 correct responses including these triple stumpers: P. D. James, suppress, parrot fever, conscription, and Russia. I also got the missed Daily Doubles of chemotherapy and Marshall Field, and I got FJ.

And this is typical poor wagering rationale. Sad to see.

"Hmm, 1919+8 years is...oh." That's how close to instaget it was. Shocked it was a single get. Not so shocked by second place's wager.

I don't want to be greedy, but boy, I wish they'd drawn this FJ to be played on Monday instead of snake oil. Still, congrats to Buzzy for hanging in there and getting win no. 3!

Seriously? Lincoln's boyhood home was called "log cabin syrup"?

I guess it is true that you learn something new every day.

Brian
...but the senator, while insisting he was not intoxicated, could not explain his nudity.

If I had 50 cents for every math question I got right, I'd have $6.30 by now.

Maybe in TOC, you will have another chance against Buzzy.
Good enough to lose on Jeopardy!

The clue asked for the product. I noticed that specifically and wondered what they would do if someone rang in with just "what is log cabin?"

Ouch. Poor Joe. He was one clam away from winning. All he had to do was sit tight on that final clue. Ringing in cost him $2000 and the game.

Well, not $2000 and the game. It cost him the game. But, in any event, Ellen gave him back $1000 of it.

Corolla is the most popular Toyota? I never would'vguessed that.

You Auto Know for $1,000 was total negbait for seatbelts.

"Well, Artemis is a god, but how do I make that double double letters?" Derp. Give me a break, I just spent 9 hours at work.

Ran Sweet Aisle.

"What the hell place would Moses have gone to?" Derp again. My only miss in the category, too.

Didn't realize that the DD in Architecture would be a coinflip between Sears and Marshall Field's, but I managed to pick the right one.

Who was famous in America in 1927? Beats the hell out of me. I was stumped. I had no idea when Lindbergh did his thing, and the wording somehow had me locked into the political field and refusing to budge.
