CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: We have two journalists as contestants on the program today. The first man we introduced, Jack Dickey, is from New York. You wrote a cover story for Time magazine. Magazines are going out of style, as you know, but you must've had a good time, because you were dealing with Taylor Swift?

Jack: Yeah. It was 2014; her album 1989 was coming out, and I had been trying to convince my editors for ages that it would help the magazine to put someone under the age of 50 on the cover.

Alex: Uh-huh.

Jack: And yeah, it was great.

Alex: And a big star to boot.

Jack: Big star.

Alex: Yeah, okay. Good for you.




Alex: Ashley Chapman. We introduced you as being from Massachusetts.

Ashley: Yes.

Alex: But you were born in...

Ashley: I was born in Hawaii.

Alex: Hawaii. As a matter of fact, you went back there to get married. Did you marry a Hawaiian?

Ashley: I did not. My husband, Nick, is from Massachusetts. But I grew up on Kauai, and we really wanted to get married somewhere special. So we got married on Kauai at a beautiful restaurant, right near the beach. It was amazing.

Alex: You know, when you say Kauai, you don't have to add the adjective "beautiful," because everybody knows how beautiful that island is.

Ashley: It is, yes.




Alex: Daniel Carden is our champion. He's from Indianapolis. He's a journalist, also. A journalist who in his travels likes to visit odd roadside attractions. Give me an example.

Daniel: There's a place in Ohio that has the captain's bathtub from the U.S.S. Maine that sunk in 1898 in Havana.

Alex: Just standing by the roadside?

Daniel: Yeah.

Alex: And don't they clean it up?

Daniel: It's in a museum, but you know, it's just a really old bathtub.

Alex: Oh.

Daniel: You know, it's worth a stop.

Alex: You would love the big statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe the ox.

Daniel: Yeah, in Minnesota.

Alex: Okay. You're still in command of the board. I have no idea why.

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Jack found the Daily Double on the 24th clue. Daniel had $3,000, Ashley had $3,800, and Jack was at $2,600. Jack wagered $1,000.

DOLL COLLECTING $800: For a collectible doll, "NM" stands for this almost perfect condition

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
THAT'S SO CLICHE $800: Meaning to exhaust one's energy & resources, it sounds like quickly using up a pre-industrial light source
(Jack: What is run out of gas?)

DOLL COLLECTING $400: To be called this term, a doll must have been made before 1930

DOLL COLLECTING $600: Name of the line from Funko with dolls from Belle to Aquaman, or the kind of culture it represents

DOLL COLLECTING $1000: 19th c. Kammer & Reinhardt dolls often have wood bodies but heads of bisque, a type of this material
(Alex: We have less than a minute to go now.)

SCORES AT THE END OF THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
Ashley: $6,000
Jack: $4,400
Daniel: $3,000

Alex clowned on Daniel after the chat session with Daniel mentioning he likes to visit odd roadside attractions. Alex: You’re still in command of the board; I have no idea why. [Laughter]

Is running a category some kind of curse? For the second day in a row a person 5/5 in a category did not win the game. Ashley earned the applause for her work in WE APPRECIATE CANADIAN PERFORMERS! Jack had the lead for the FJ! round (aided by 3/3 on DDs) though on a triple solve clue.

Once again the Clue of the Day as shown on the J! site was DD3.

In the coincidence department was Ashley the history teacher looking at the FJ! category of AMERICAN HISTORY. She can go back to work since she solved the clue and bet big.

Jack solved the clue for the win although I got a chuckle out of him making it one word to have me picturing TR playing in the CFL.

Will we get a FJ! clue tomorrow with just words or are more video clues with images going to become more of a thing now? I’m 2/2 this week, so I’m fine with the trend.

I don't count Coryats but today would have to be one of my better games from the fourth podium, with a pretty easy FJ to boot.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

There is a Paul Bunyan statue in my former hometown of Oscoda, Michigan, which is said to have been home to the first published stories of him.

Ran the Cliche category, and got all but Birch Box in Trees, Cleveland in Encyclopedias, and Zenith in Opposites.

There's an LPGA too?

Date + alliterative + actually recognizing that as Teddy Roosevelt = Rough Riders.

Lach Trash: burning the candle at both ends, "pop", Paul, CD-ROM, meson (thanks to that "Strange Charm" song)

1899 + alliterative group + horseback is already pushing it. Giving us "governor of NY" makes it way too easy. And then they show us a picture of Teddy Roosevelt?!?!!? I give up. Maybe lay off the picture FJs for awhile, J! writers?

For "burning the candle at both ends," I said "burning the midnight oil." Does anyone recall the wording on that clue? It seemed possible that could've been accepted, depending on the wording.

Being a sports fan, I easily swept the basketball category.

What's with these FJ! visual clues lately?

Not only that, show a group photo where he’s immediately recognizable but still show a close up. First poll question to be 100%?

So the doll's head made of porcelain. You figure they would've accepted china? BMSed it?

I could've sworn that, either late in the Sony Boards era or early in this board's history, we actually had a Kids' Week clue get 100%. Anyone got the numbers?

Sorry, nope. They were looking for a term for a high energy fusion reaction.
