CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Reid Setzer is from Washington, D.C., and yet you spent some time interning at the British Parliament?

Reid: I did. I worked for London city government when I studied abroad and spent a week there in a room they told me was 800 years old.

Alex: Wow.

Reid: Yeah.

Alex: Good experience for you?

Reid: It was great experience. They actually told me where I worked was where Charles I's death warrant was signed.

Alex: Oh. Oh, okay.

Reid: Yeah.




Alex: Roberta Chapman is a tour guide. Where?

Roberta: At the U.S. Capitol Building.

Alex: Aha!

Roberta: Mm-hm.

Alex: What's the most difficult thing you have to contend with at the Capitol?

Roberta: Probably diplomatically answering all the questions.

[Laughter]

Alex: What's the silliest question you've ever been asked?

Roberta: Where does the president sleep?

Alex: In the Capitol Building.

Roberta: Indeed.

Alex: Really, somebody asked you.

Roberta: More than one somebody.

Alex: Was it an American, or was it a foreigner?

Roberta: I probably shouldn't say.

[Laughter]

Alex: Right.




Alex: Steven Grade is our champion. What is this about your wife getting you to do something at conventions?

Steven: She has gotten me into cosplay lately. There's a big science fiction and fantasy convention in Atlanta called Dragon Con each year. She likes to go dressed up as her favorite characters, and she's gotten me into it the past couple years.

Alex: Who's her favorite character?

Steven: Probably Amy Pond from Doctor Who, which is why she gets me to dress up as a Roman centurion on Labor Day in Atlanta.

[Laughter]

JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
Steven found the Daily Double on the 24th clue. Steven had $1,400, Roberta had $1,800, and Reid was at $4,800. Steven made it a True Daily Double, wagering $1,400.

THE WORLD OF MONEY $600: In an effort to diversity its portfolio, Canada sold most of this, becoming the only G7 member with less than 100 tons

MOROCCO $1200: 1963's "Sand War" against this eastern neighbor changed little geographically but did lead to lingering tension

SCORES ENTERING FINAL JEOPARDY!
Reid: $23,000
Steven: $17,600
Roberta: $3,000

FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY
FICTIONAL CHARACTERS

VENUSIAN MONOLOGUES/MARTIAN CHRONICLES
Three-quarters for first place. Shore's Conjecture.
Reid: Wager $12,201 to cover Steven, but no more than $16,999 so as not to fall behind Roberta's doubled score. If you're a fan of shoretegic wagering, you might risk $6,201.
Steven: You ought to wager between $5,401 (venusian) and $6,800 (martian), thereby safely covering a $0 bet by Reid.
Roberta: Too bad for you, Roberta, your score is less than Reid's score minus Steven's score. Unless they both commit an egregious wagering error, you've no hope of moving into first place. 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
In a 1947 collection he solved 12 mysteries, including "The Cretan Bull" & "The Girdle of Hyppolita"

FINAL SCORES
Roberta: $3,000 - $2,995 = $5 (Who is ?) (3rd place: $1,000)
Steven: $17,600 + $6,500 = $24,100 (Who is Poirot?) (4-day champion: $88,300)
Reid: $23,000 - $12,201 = $10,799 (Who is Sherlock Holmes?) (2nd place: $2,000)
(Alex: [To Steven] The Labours of Hercules, or Hercule.)

Total Potential Lach Trash: $2,400

CROSSWORD CLUES "Y" had a surprising stumper when no one knew the (5) for brute in Gulliver's Travels.

Steven had a couple of close/no cigar misses for "Dis" on Netflix and the SLA. It worked out in the end although what he really needed was for Reid to solve DD3. If Reid had a bigger lead then Steven could have won over 30K to have a much better position on the tracker. As is today's win is meaningless for S36 play without another win.

The FJ! clue had me working all over the place. I immediately recognized the labors, but in my head I was saying Hercules with 3 syllables. Having no character in mind with that name I thought I was going to have to guess. I went from Charlie Chan to Sam Spade to Encyclopedia Brown to the Hardy Boys.

It was not until I pictured the name Hercules with the letters themselves instead of saying it that I realized the name to write. Steven did the right thing in only writing the last name as why give the judges any trouble by adding an S to the first name.

Reid's path to victory was at DD2 although in a 15200 to 12800 game does anyone really expect him to go all in on MOROCCO? Naturally the clue turned out to be basic neighbor geography.

The “12 labors” angle never occurred to me until Alex mentioned it. But it was an instaget because I remembered reading “The Cretan Bull” when I was going through my Hercule Poirot phase.

Instaget FJ for me. I've read the collection in question as well as all the Poirot novels.

I was disappointed by how easy they made the "They Adapted My Book." All of those were airport novels.

Steven may regret saying the Smorgasbordello was his kind of place, considering we know he is married.

That's what makes Jeopardy! so great! I had Poirot based on "mysteries" and the date - kept looking for the TOM

Morocco DD: Go big!! Clothing DD: Go small!! (I also said birth - evil clue!)

I'll send a signed clown marathon photo to anyone who can find a photo of Steven in his Roman centaurion cosplay costume (in Atlanta on Labor Day) :lol:

Also surprised she had no guess at all on Final ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

An article of clothing that's "worn starting with this occasion" must be associated with some rite of passage, I thought. Birth doesn't really make sense because it's not like pre-birth togs are in heavy supply. In the absence of a single word meaning "becoming a (wo)man" I chose marriage with little confidence.


I don't think I could have come up with anyone other than Poirot as a mid-1900s mystery solver (those hard-boiled American detective stories just don't spring to my mind very easily), but the 12 and the two titles with Greek references certainly erased any minute possibility I had of thinking of a non-Hercule response.

Not accepting the mispronunciation of Symbionese Liberation Army seemed overly harsh. Don't they usually accept mispronunciations if one could reasonably pronounce the word the way it's spelled? That looks like it could reasonably be pronounced with three syllables.

My problem at first was coming up with far too many possibilities, not having caught the labors of Hercules TOM. Before I read the clue a second time and recognized the title I was familiar with, I was busy running through a list of mid-20th century detectives: Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, Ellery Queen, Mike Hammer, Nero Wolfe, Lord Peter Wimsey...

Only if the 3 syllables were pronounced "SIM-bya-NEEZ." Steven dropped the letter "i" along with its syllable, and the ruling shouldn't be controversial.

I thought the FJ clue was elegantly constructed.

Coryat: 43,400
52 R/2 W
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Last Comic Standing, yahoo, Symbionese Liberation Army, marriage (DD)

What a brilliantly, beautifully constructed FJ! clue.

I love a Jeoportmanteau, and Multilingual Overlaps took that to a whole new level. I was particularly partial to Macarenaissance.

That shank clue was a bit dark.

"What kind of meteorological device can be either mercury or something you've never heard of?" in the second box was some nasty negbait.
Sprinkles are for winners.
