Andy here with the final recap of the week!
One new feature we’ll be bringing here at The Jeopardy! Fan; I’ll be combing Twitter for tweets about the show; any ones I really like will end up on the blog!
J! round categories:
OLYMPIC CITY ATTRACTIONS
FUN WITH ACRONYMS
WHAT’S MY AIRLINE?
YOUR NAME IS PERFECT
Kathy managed to keep Jerry from running COLORFUL MOVIES by getting the $1,000 clue. Needless to say, he dominated the first 15 clues of the show!
Kathy made the same mistake I did on WHAT’S MY AIRLINE $1000 (You’ll see a 3-leaf clover on the web page of this European carrier); I said “Ryanair” as well!
Scores at the first break:
Jerry $2,800 (7 correct)
Kathy $800 (2 correct, 1 incorrect)
Avram $600 (2 correct)
Now that Kathy’s made the show, she promised her fiance that she would get a tattoo of Alex — mustache included!
Coming out of the break, Jerry got some applause for running WORLD HISTORY in amongst a run of 6 consecutive clues! However, it was Avram who played the first Daily Double, in OLYMPIC CITY ATTRACTIONS $800! Scores:
Avram bet $1,600. Clue: The Museu Picasso His correct response put him at $3,200!
By the end of the round, the scores were:
Jerry $7,600 (15 correct)
Avram $3,600 (6 correct, 1 incorrect)
Kathy $2,000 (4 correct, 1 incorrect)
DJ! round categories:
LANGUAGES OF AFRICA
PUPPIES & PETUNIAS
The following tweet sums up PUPPIES & PETUNIAS well:
Avram got off to the best start in the round, getting the first 3 clues! However, Jerry got the 4th clue, and the 5th was LANGUAGES OF AFRICA $1600. If you’ve spent any time watching, you know the Daily Double loves to sit there, and there it was! Scores:
Jerry went conservative and bet just $1,200. His clue: With 50 million speakers, this Bantu language is the most widely spoken native language on the continent. Jerry’s correct response put him at $10,000!
Jerry immediately went over to “-UP” and picked up both $6,000 and more adulation from the audience. The applause was more important for sure, though!
The final Daily Double remained hidden for quite awhile. It finally appeared on the 29th clue of the round, under SHAKESPEAREAN RELATIVES $1600! The $2,000 clue was still to play.
If I’m Jerry, I’m betting $4,900 here. He bet just $2,600 though. His clue: Bianca’s sister. A correct response put him at $25,000.
Shockingly, for the second game in a row, a locked-out challenger with a chance to break the lock offered no guess whatsoever on the final clue (Brother of King Edward IV). If only I could get so lucky!
Scores going into Final:
Jerry $25,000 (14 correct)
Avram $11,600 (9 correct)
Kathy $3,600 (2 correct)
FJ! category: 18TH CENTURY AMERICA
FJ! clue: There were just 13 of these, the title of an historic document; one offered admission to Canada
Kathy 3600 – 3000 = 600
Avram 11600 + 3000 = 14600
Jerry 25000 + 1799 = 26799
Got a feeling Jerry is going to be on Jeopardy for a while. Guy is a beast

Will he be on awhile? We’ll be back Monday where Jerry will see if he can make our ToC list! See you then!
