Andy here with a recap of Sandie Baker going for Win #7!
J! round categories:
REJECTED SUPERVILLAIN NAMES
THE INTERSTATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM
MADDEN COVER MEN
Sandie and Kristin both did very well over the first three categories (Supervillain, Madden, and Sauces). Alex expressed some rather sexist surprise at the performance over Madden, though!
The first Daily Double went Sandy’s way under SAUCES $600! The scores were:
Sandie bet just $1,200. Her clue: One story says the French came up with this sauce to imitate a buttery one brought with a visiting Dutch king. Her correct response put her at $3,400! I really think that Sandie missed a spot for a True Daily Double, though! There would have been plenty of opportunity to catch up…
At the end of 15, the scores were:
Frederique, on her trip to Macchu Picchu, walked the Inca Trail for four days! It was apparently the hard way, and she cursed a lot on the trek — in both English and French!
Over the back half of the round, it was more of Sandie and Kristin. I think Sandie got “one consonant” mixed up with “one syllable”; she negged with “flute” on an “oboe” question!
Kristin ended up getting a neg refunded on HISTORIC DAYS $1000 (Jan. 24, 1948 out west); “the gold rush” was specific enough!
Scores after 30:
A BEASTLY CATEGORY
LITERARY TITLE CHARACTERS
THAT’S THE “WAY”
COMPOSERS $1600 had the first Daily Double! Sandie’s to play, scores were:
Sandie bet $2,000. Her clue: In 1727 this German composer became a naturalized British subject under George I. Her correct response put her at $11,800!
I would have put big money on A BEASTLY CATEGORY having the other Daily Double. It was a video category to boot! I’m glad it didn’t, though! It came up under WIND $2000. Frederique got to play it, with scores sitting at the following:
Frederique bet only $2,200. Her clue: A common scale of wind velocities was devised in 1805 by Sir Francis Beaufort of this military group. Frederique went for the army and fell to $4,600.
The last clue in A BEASTLY CATEGORY went unplayed! Scores going into Final:
FJ! category: 19TH CENTURY PRESIDENTS
FJ! clue: Good looks weren’t enough as he became the only full-term president rejected in a bid for his party’s 2nd term nomination
Frederique 6200 – 0 = 6200
Kristin 13200 – 13199 = 1
Sandie 15400 – 11100 = 4300
So Frederique ends Sandie’s win streak! She’ll be back tomorrow to defend! Jeanie, armed with lots of fun stories from her trip, will have the recap! See you then!
