GameRecap

Andy here with the recap from the week’s final game!

The players that we have today: Nicholas Berube and Mehmet Berker challenging Amanda Boitano (who won $30,401 yesterday!)

“DOWN” & “OUT”
IN BEVERLY HILLS

Amanda went straight to SHAKESPEARE. Nicholas had the best buzzer timing to start the game, though!

Amanda took Alex by surprise when she smiled when responding to “DOWN” & “OUT” $600: One of SyFy’s most watched shows is the WWE’s Friday Night this!

Amanda got to play the first Daily Double under SHAKESPEARE $600! Scores:

Nicholas $3,600
Amanda $2,000
Mehmet -$400

Amanda bet $2,000. Her clue: The plot? Plotters plot; mid-March gets dangerous; main plotter ends up committing strato-cide. Her correct response put her at $4,000 and the show into the first break!

Nicholas hopes to earn enough money on Jeopardy! to be able to buy a Volkswagen bus.

Mehmet’s father won the lottery — but didn’t tell Mehmet!

Amanda gave ghost tours in colonial Williamsburg during her time at William & Mary!

Back to the game, Mehmet did quite well in ACTORS! 2 clues in BEVERLY HILLS went unplayed. Scores after 30:

Nicholas $6,000
Amanda $4,600
Mehmet $2,600

OPPOSITES

Nicholas and Mehmet jumped around COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD — I know Alex will give them a hard time postgame for that!

There were 3 Triple Stumpers in SUPER BOWLERS — I got all 3!

THE 17th CENTURY $1600 had the first Daily Double; Amanda played it with scores at:

Nicholas $8,800
Mehmet $7,400
Amanda $4,600

Amanda bet $2,000. Her clue: Under the treaty of Karlowitz of 1699, most of Hungary was ceded to this country by the Ottoman Empire. Amanda said Turkey and fell to $2,600.

A few clues later, OPPOSITES $1600 had the final Daily Double; Amanda played this one too! Scores:

Nicholas $8,800
Mehmet $5,400
Amanda $2,600

Amanda bet $2,600. Her clue: This 11-letter compound word sounds like it means miser, but it’s the opposite. Amanda said “moneygrubber” and went to $0.

A number of clues were left on the table in this round! Scores going into Final:

Nicholas $10,800
Mehmet $7,000
Amanda $1,200

FJ! category: EPITAPHS

FJ! clue: His headstone in Rome reads in part: “This grave contains all that was mortal, of a young English poet”

Amanda 1200 – 1200 = 0
Mehmet 7000 – 2399 = 4601
Nicholas 10800 – 4000 = 6800

So, we say goodbye to Amanda but Nicholas returns Monday in his quest for a VW Bus!
