Andy here with a recap from Quarterfinal #3!
Today we have: MaryLou McKenna, Eric Hack, and Tracy Alexander!
J! round categories:
APPLE IDIOMS FOR TEACHER
CRIME & LAW ENFORCEMENT
BROADWAY MUSICALS BY SONG
BIRDS WITHIN WORDS
TELL ‘EM WHAT THEY’VE WON, JOHNNY!
We had one Triple Stumper early on that I found surprising: You don’t mess with the Zoran when he’s Zoran Milanovic, the Prime Minister of this country. Hint: The “Ovic” implies that he is likely from one of the former Yugoslav republics!
The scores at the first break were:
Alex had the same question as many people do with regards to Eric, that high school Latin teachers still exist?
The TELL’ EM WHAT THEY’VE WON was spoken by Johnny Gilbert!
MaryLou got to play the Daily Double at the bottom of BROADWAY MUSICALS! Scores:
MaryLou bet $1,400. Her clue: “We’re Not Gonna Take It” & “Don’t Stop Believin'”. She couldn’t come up with the correct response and fell to $1,000.
At the end of the round, the scores were:
DJ! round categories:
THEY SAID IT
THE NATIONAL INVENTORS HALL OF FAME
SOLVE THE MYSTERY TITLE
THAT’S ANCIENT CITY HISTORY
YOUR TV CHARACTER IS DEAD TO ME
Tracy decided she wanted to start at the bottom of categories. Eric joined in! It was Tracy who found the Daily Double first under THEY SAID IT $1200! Scores:
Tracy bet $4,000. Her clue: “The god who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time”. Tracy matched my guess — Patrick Henry — and fell to $400.
Tracy also got to the final Daily Double, after not ringing in very much (Eric got most of the buzzes!), under INVENTORS $1200. Scores:
Tracy chose to bet $2,000. Her clue: He gave his name to a pressure-ignited internal combustion engine & was also a linguist. Tracy went for McCormick and fell to -$1,600
Scores going into Final:
FJ! category: STATE FLAGS
FJ! clue: It is mentioned in the motto on Minnesota’s flag & is depicted on Alaska’s
