DESCRIBING THE SHAKESPEARE PLAY
ACTORS & THEIR OSCAR-WINNING ROLES
“DOWN” & “OUT”
IN BEVERLY HILLS
Amanda went straight to SHAKESPEARE. Nicholas had the best buzzer timing to start the game, though!
Amanda took Alex by surprise when she smiled when responding to “DOWN” & “OUT” $600: One of SyFy’s most watched shows is the WWE’s Friday Night this!
Amanda got to play the first Daily Double under SHAKESPEARE $600! Scores:
Amanda bet $2,000. Her clue: The plot? Plotters plot; mid-March gets dangerous; main plotter ends up committing strato-cide. Her correct response put her at $4,000 and the show into the first break!
Nicholas hopes to earn enough money on Jeopardy! to be able to buy a Volkswagen bus.
Mehmet’s father won the lottery — but didn’t tell Mehmet!
Amanda gave ghost tours in colonial Williamsburg during her time at William & Mary!
Back to the game, Mehmet did quite well in ACTORS! 2 clues in BEVERLY HILLS went unplayed. Scores after 30:

A few clues later, OPPOSITES $1600 had the final Daily Double; Amanda played this one too! Scores:
Amanda bet $2,600. Her clue: This 11-letter compound word sounds like it means miser, but it’s the opposite. Amanda said “moneygrubber” and went to $0.
