We’ve got Quarterfinal #4 on tap here at TJ!F!

Andy here with the recap; your quarterfinalists today are: Mary Bayer, Jennifer Giles, and Chris Grinvalds!

J! round categories:
1-LETTER STOCK SYMBOLS
OLYMPIC SPORTS BY GOLD MEDALIST
WHAT DO I HEAR?
OTHER BIBLE BOOKS
COLORFUL RHYME TIME
THE MATH & NOTHING BUT THE MATH

Jennifer had the best luck on RHYME TIME, getting the bottom two clues

We had a rare audio Daily Double (at least rare for this era of the show), at the bottom of WHAT DO I HEAR?; Mary got to play it! Scores:

Jennifer $2,800
Mary $1,400
Chris -$200

Mary bet all $1,400. Her clue: Vivaldi wrote for it, but it’s also popular in American bluegrass music. Mary went for “autoharp” and fell to $0.

At the first break, the scores were:
Jennifer $3,800
Chris $600
Mary $400

Chris got the applause on SPORTS — I’m surprised he didn’t play it sooner! That was about all he was able to do over the back half of the round; 75% of his score came from the one category! Scores after 30:

Jennifer $6,000
Chris $4,000
Mary $200

DJ! round categories:
20TH CENTURY EUROPE
CROSSWORD CLUES “K”
SAINTS GO MARCHING IN
U.S. BODIES OF WATER
ENTERTAINING RELATIVES
SHAKING UP SHAKESPEARE

Mary and Chris had the best time on the buzzer over the first two categories; Mary jumped into the lead, but Jennifer kept pace!

SAINTS GO MARCHING IN and US BODIES OF WATER had the two Daily Doubles; they were the last two categories played! Chris got to the Daily Double under BODIES OF WATER $800! Scores:

Jennifer $12,000
Mary $11,000
Chris $6,800

If I’m Chris here, I probably go big. Chris bet $3,200, though. His clue: This beautiful lake in the Cascade Mountains is nearly 2,000 feet deep. His correct response put him at $10,000!

The contestants seemed to have no interest in the other Daily Double! It was under SAINTS $1600! Jennifer got to this one, with scores:

Jennifer $14,400
Mary $9,000
Chris $8,400

Jennifer bet $2,000. Her clue: Born at Lourdes in 1844, she was canonized in 1933. Her correct response put her at $16,400!

Scores going into Final:
Jennifer $18,400
Mary $9,000
Chris $8,400

FJ! category: LISTS

FJ! clue: Efforts to save historic treasures threatened by the creation of the Aswan High Dam led UNESCO to create this list
