J! round categories: GEOGRAPHIC SAINTS; ’60s SITCOMS; I DID IT!; TREATIES; KING, QUEEN OR JACK; CROSSWORD CLUES “S”

DJ! round categories: RUSSIAN WRITERS; THE WINTER OLYMPICS; FOOD ACROSS AMERICA; BLOODSUCKERS; SECRETARIES OF STATE; “HOME” DEPOT

This was a Monday game, and Ken hadn’t quite picked up his buzzer mojo. In fact, of the 57 non-Daily Double clues, Ken only got in first on the buzzer 22 times; the lowest total of his entire original run on the show. If there was a chance to beat him, it was this game!

Ken went 4/5 in I DID IT! & RUSSIAN WRITERS and 3/5 in TREATIES & KING, QUEEN OR JACK over the game. Clinton went 4/5 in ’60s SITCOMS. Josh went 4/5 in THE WINTER OLYMPICS and 3/5 in CROSSWORD CLUES “S”. That being said, Ken did not take a neg the entire game!

Amusingly, Ken called for BLOODSUCKERS by saying “Well, my dad’s a lawyer…”

Unfortunately, Josh and Clinton failed to take advantage of the opportunity that was presented to them, both challengers going 0/1 on Daily Doubles.

Josh’s: CROSSWORD CLUES “S” $800 (for $1,000): “Baby” bird (5) (What is stork? Josh had no response)
Clinton’s: SECRETARIES OF STATE $1200 (for $1,800): Dwight Eisenhower & JFK both attended the 1962 dedication of the airport named for him (Who is John Foster Dulles? Clinton went for Laguardia)
