J! round categories:
FACES IN HISTORY
’80s HAIR BANDS
COUNTRY NAME ORIGINS
KNOW YOUR A-B-C’s
STARS OF BUSINESS
STRIKE THAT!

Dara had some bad luck, taking three really close negs early on! Part of me wondered we were going to see some judge’s reversals coming out of the break! Fortunately, the negs weren’t expensive ones, but it’s tough to get off on that foot! Dara did go 4/5 in HAIR BANDS, though!

Scores at the first break:

Dara $2,000
Eric $800
Elliot $200

Dara brought in a photograph of her doing the Skywalk around the outside of the CN Tower in Toronto!

Back to the game, the Daily Double stayed hidden for awhile, but Elliot found it under COUNTRY NAME ORIGINS $800! Scores:

Dara $2,600
Elliot $1,600
Eric $1,000

Elliot bet $1,600. His clue: A national pair in the Caribbean: “Ancient & Bearded”. Elliot (and my mother) said “Trinidad and Tobago” — Elliot’s score fell to $0.

There were 3 clues that went unplayed in this round! Scores after the J! round:

Dara $3,400
Eric $1,000
Elliot $-800

DJ! round categories:
MEDIEVAL FASHION
UNMANNED SPACE EXPLORATION
THERE’S A NAME FOR THAT
CINEMATIC NIGHTSPOTS
DEFOE
“DE”FRIEND

Elliot did very well in CINEMATIC NIGHTSPOTS, going 3/5!

Quelle surprise — MEDIEVAL FASHION $1600 had a Daily Double! Eric played it, with scores at:

Dara $7,400
Elliot $5,200
Eric $3,400

Eric bet $1,000. His clue: 3-letter name for a long white tunic made of linen & worn by medieval clergy. His correct response put him at $4,400!

DEFOE $1600 had the second Daily Double! This was Dara’s, with scores at:

Dara $9,800
Elliot $5,200
Eric $3,200

Dara bet just $800. “Memoirs of a Cavalier” was a fictional account of this decades-long war of 17th century Continental Europe. Dara said Hundred Years’ War and fell to $9,000.

Once again, clues were left remaining on this board — and Dara didn’t have a runaway! Scores going into Final:

Dara $9,000
Elliot $5,600
Eric $3,200

FJ! category: OLYMPIC HOST CITIES

FJ! clue: This European city hosted the northernmost Summer Games, also the first where Soviet athletes participated

Eric 3200 – 3100 = 100
Elliot 5600 + 5400 = 11000
Dara 9000 – 2201 = 6799

Elliot’s got $29,201 over 2 wins — will he make our ToC list tomorrow? Come back to find out!
