CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Matt Harriss is the first player we introduced on our program today. Do you still have the same girlfriend?

Matt: Uh, yes, I do.

Alex: Yeah? Because you kind of made things a little rough, I gather, on your first date. Where did you take her?

Matt: Oh, I don't know about that. I took her to a, uh, tobacco-spitting contest.

Alex: Just what every girl wants to, uh, do. Is it a competition in which prizes are awarded?

Matt: I think there's--it's called Spittoono, and I think that the prize is--

Alex: Spittoono?

Matt: Mm-hmm. The prize is a spittoon. The record is something like 28 feet, or it's--

Alex: I wouldn't want to be part of the cleanup crew.




Alex: Jennifer Hills is a librarian from Twin Falls, Idaho. Taught for five years where?

Jennifer: On the Crow Indian reservation.

Alex: How big a reservation is it?

Jennifer: Um, it's one of the biggest, um, of the Native American tribes, and, um, comprises a huge chunk of Bighorn County in Montana.

Alex: And is it as poor an area as I have seen in some of the Sioux reservations?

Jennifer: Yeah, unfortunately, it is. But I think that there's a lot of kids that are really trying to make effort to--to get out of that, so...

Alex: Okay, and thanks to people like you, they have a better chance. Good.




Alex: Boomie Aglietti is our champion. He's a writer for television and stage, but I want to know about your first name, Boomie.

Boomie: My first name--it's a nickname that my parents gave me when I was in the crib. I used to walk around saying, "boom, boom, boom".

Alex: Okay. And you were christened as?

Boomie: Laurent.

Alex: Laurent.

Boomie: Yeah, but none of my teachers could pronounce it.

Alex: So a French first name, an Italian surname?

Boomie: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Yep.

Alex: Boomie. All right.

Nice game for Boomie, a lot like yesterday, turned on the burners in DJ to get a lock win. I did like that Matt took a shot to break the lock on the last clue.

I was rooting for Matt in this game. A lube tech at a car place, like to see non-traditional Jeopardy contestant jobs on the show. (My apologies to the Boomie fan club on here).

FJ was an instaget for me. It helps to have a teenage child (not named that) and having seen a lot of those in the last 14 years.

Wasn't really paying attention to the scores too much because I thought Boomie was running away with it, but I too noticed that Matt was actually still in it and had gone to break the lock on that last clue. Shame he didn't get it, although Boomie's answer was damn funny.

FJ was an instaget. My roommate is a huge Twilight fan, and I can see those stupid books from the corner of my eye while watching the TV. It was an interesting clue, lacking a bit in TOM perhaps, but that particular name has been popular for long enough that it should've been an immediate candidate given the category.

As a sidenote, I actually preguessed "Isabella" as a joke.
"No man is an island, so they say, although the small crustaceans and the bird which sat impassively on Dirk Manhope's chest as he floated lazily in the pool would probably disagree."

I had no idea what books or movies the name came from. I just got it from observing children for years.

The NATO Phonetic Alphabet was one of the first things I added to my flash cards when I started studying for Jeopardy. Paid off nicely tonight!

I knew what they were going for in FJ ("that teenage vampire/werewolf/whatever movie") but couldn't come up with the actual name.

I was not going to die a happy man if I did not find out where the name "Boomie" came from. Congratulations again, Boomie. Sounds like there was a quite a fan club there on your behalf.

I would love a poll question to see who knew a)what book/movie series was being referenced and, more importantly, b) who has either read one of the books or seen one of the movies?

The Dear Wife and I both knew immediately that Twilight was the oeuvre in question. She lit on "Jacob" though she wasn't sure. I blanked completely after realizing 10 seconds into the Think music that the correct response could not possibly be "Edward."

Neither of us has had any contact with the books or the movies.

I keep telling the DW she ought to take the quiz. She swears she'd freeze up in front of the cameras.

Nice surge, Boomie, even if you did leave my Idaho compatriot in the dust.
Poo-tee-weet? So it goes.

Twilight is so ever present, you don't have to have seen or read any of it to be aware of the basics. They gave you the name Isabella in the clue- Bella being the lead female dishrag of a character. Plus Jacob was like the number one name for several years over the last decade. So even without the movie reference, I think people had a decent shot at it.
I really liked the boards tonight. Boomie was great. The other two put up a nice fight for a while, but then he just took it and ran like hell.

:oops:
Sure, I can handle that request. Anyone who has seen the relevant posts on my Facebook wall about movies I have seen knows I got the FJ clue correct.

Boomie has FJ responses with incorrect items crossed off for correct ones two days in a row. I suspect that is rare. I joined him in letting the writers get me to guess Hole in the Wall Gang. I did not join Boomie and his opponents in staring at Rainier clue. That TS is a litmus violation and I may have to dial down expectations for the champ.

Boomie has played four DDs in boxes worth 6000 total. His wagers total 6600. So far he appears to have a near box value strategy. Matt was not so far ahead that Boomie to go for a max out, but 2500 did seem on the low side at the time. 1700 on the last DD seemed like buzzer confidence that Boomie would lead entering FJ and that was all that mattered.

Exactly. I admittedly was helped by the fact that I live with people who adore the books and tolerate the movies (my mother and my teenage sister, specifically), but their cultural impact is so widespread now that it was a perfectly gettable clue. After a second's detour to "Edward" while Alex was reading the clue, I caught on to the 'biblical' TOM and got Jacob before he had finished. (Not that I'm very proud of this, but at least something good has come of the "Twilight" phenomenon...a correct FJ response. :D)

I wasn't too much a fan of the boards (DJ! was much better than J! for me, though...loved, and ran, the iPod category), but I agree that Boomie was impressive. It's fun to watch him play, and especially exciting with his current pattern of rallying in DJ! for the lock.

Back to "Twilight" for a second...in a world full of parodies and bashing of the books/films (pretty much all of which they fully deserve), some inspired, some alright, this is probably the funniest treatise on it I've seen: http://www.verbal-vomit.com/2011/11/tea ... dward.html

OK, how many others here think that the "St. Ranier's Day" clue was far undervalued at the $400 spot? Myself, I tend to consider the category a wheelhouse, I most likely would have TDD'd the DD, no matter my lead (and got it, 4/5 in the cat), but "St. Ranier" was a complete stand-and-stare. I understood the TOM after Alex explained it (Ranier = Monaco), but I always thought it was because of Prince Ranier, and not anybody by that name who was canonized. (BTW, I was tempted to answer "Monserrat" in the $800 spot, as St. Patrick's Day is also its national holiday, as Patrick is the patron saint of that Caribbean island as well (as well as of Nigeria, but March 17 isn't a national holiday there), but held off - might have even still been negged, despite being technically correct, the fact that Monserrat isn't technically a nation (but rather a British dependency) might have bit me).

And way to go Boomie again! You made a good demonstration of how not only knowledge but buzzer speed is a factor in a lock game. And, again, thanks for making the game entertaining. :)

Not me. It was an instaget and I was shocked that it proved to be a TS. BTW, it's spelled Rainier. ;)

I'm going to go ahead and claim that I was thrown off by the St. Rainier clue simply because it was revealed last in the category. I just couldn't bring myself to believe that it was as simple as naming the country that had Prince Rainier as I might have done as a kneejerk had I seen it first. (I was surprised to see Mexico go ungrabbed; guess el dieciséis de septiembre isn't as commonly known as I would have thought.)

Jacob was my first instinct on FJ, based more on reading that news when it was fresh than on any familiarity with the Twilight series. I did have some doubts leading me toward Jonathan, but I stuck with the correct response.

I also didn't know Rainier. I wouldn't say it was a "hard" clue, it was just difficult to make the leap to it in that context. If I had heard the name "Prince Rainier" then Monaco would have been Pavlov, but I had never heard the term "Saint Rainier," and it just seemed like such a generic name by itself that I didn't get a guess out of it. I don't that think it should reflect badly on Boomie or his opponents; even the best players will leave the occasional clue on the board that will leave an average player who is watching from home shaking their head.

I felt like the placement of the Rainier clue gave you a hint as to the answer. In the 400 box, you have to ignore the possibility of neg bait and go with the Pavlovian "Monaco" (plus it's not like you lose a lot if you get it wrong). If it was in the bottom row, it would have been a S'n'S for me. As was, I shrugged and said "Monaco".

Also, bevy was some nice Lach Trash.
