DECADES OF ASIAN HISTORY
SURROUNDED BY WATER
TV GUIDE SAYS
JUST “MBLE” ALONG
The third clue of the game picked was SURROUNDED BY WATER $400. John got to face the clue all by himself as it was the Daily Double!
John bet $400. In 1869 Africa became completely surrounded by water with the opening of this. His correct response put his score at $800 and left $600 on the table.
Regina seemed to be nervous, unfortunately. She stumbled a bit when giving responses and selecting clues, but also seemed to recover by the time the show went to first break! Scores after 15:
Alex claimed to have never heard of a “destination wedding” during Regina’s interview. Really?
Coming out of the break, Regina’s nerves seemed to take over again and she negged a few times again! I really felt bad for her. Shane had most of the good time on the buzzer!
After 30 clues, the scores sat at:

Shane only got 1 of the first 17 clues of the round and John actually vaulted well into the lead! This included John’s running of THE NATIONAL RECORDING REGISTRY!
We got to HEALTH & MEDICINE and NICKNAMES with both Daily Doubles unseen! John saw the first one at $1200 in HEALTH… — the scores were:
John bet just $1,600. His clue: In 1911 a Swiss psychiatrist coined this term for a withdrawal into one’s inner world in patients with schizophrenia. John went for “lock-in” and fell to $14,800. That was a tough clue!
Regina actually got to the last one, under NICKNAMES $1200! Scores:

John 20400 – 4000 = 16400
Ugh. ANOTHER BET FOR THE TIE. WHY WHY WHY.
Oh well, John’s the new champ and he’ll be back tomorrow!
