Andy here on recap duty from Thursday’s Jeopardy!
J! round categories:
THE MONTANAS, JOE & HELENA
OTHER LINES TO SING THE KIDS
ENDS WITH DOUBLE LETTERS
Darren did well to start the game, but both challengers had money by the time Katie found the Daily Double, under POLITICIAN AUTHORS $800. Scores:
Katie went for the True Daily Double. Her clue: In 2003 this onetime head of the State Department told her groundbreaking story in “Madame Secretary”. Her correct response tied her with Darren!
By the time we finished ANCIENT HISTORY, POLITICIAN AUTHORS, and 4/5 in MONTANAS, the scores were:
Joe is a marathon runner who qualified for Boston — by all of 47 seconds. Darren is restoring a Studebaker Avanti!
Coming back to the game, Katie did quite well over the final 16 clues. I’m surprised we got through all 30 considering the early break! Scores after 30:
DJ! round categories:
THE NATIONAL FILM REGISTRY
FINAL RESTING PLACES
Both challengers did well in ______ IT, and Joe nearly caught up to Katie by the end of MOUNTAINS. However, it was our cop champion who found the Daily Double, under FINAL RESTING PLACES $1200. Scores:
Darren went for the True Daily Double. His clue: This author’s ashes were buried under a large walnut tree in front of his office on Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana, California. “Tarzana” was the big clue, Darren picked up on it, and his score went to $7,200!
Darren went hunting for the final Daily Double in BIBLICAL REVELRY and found it under $1,200! Scores:
Darren just bet $2,000. His clue: In Judges 16 the Philistines have a wild party (their last) to mock this hero. His correct response put him at $12,400!
Given less than a minute to get through the final six clues, Darren went for the high valued clues first! It worked out for him, as he retook the lead! Scores going into Final:
FJ! category: CURRENT TELEVISION
FJ! clue: George Romero declined to direct a few episodes of this series, calling it “basically…just a soap opera”
Joe 9000 – 6400 = 2600
Katie 15200 + 15000 = 30200
Darren 16000 + 4000 = 20000
After yesterday, I could see that one coming a mile away! Katie’s our champion and she’ll play tomorrow!
