J! round categories:

We just had one Triple Stumper over a past paced first 15 clues: Scores at first break:
Marissa once slipped on a banana peel while running for a bus (yes, like a cartoon!)
Surprisingly the September 11 category did *not* have the Daily Double! It was under NOBEL PEACE PRIZE! Amy got to play it, with scores at:
Amy bet $1,000. Her clue: 2001: U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. She said Egypt and fell to -$1,200.
Scores after 30:

MUSICAL IDIOMS $1600 had the first Daily Double — this was Marissa’s to play! Scores:
Marissa bet $2,500. Her clue: To trigger a potent memory is to do this 3-word phrase, play a combination of 3 notes. Her correct response put her at $7,300!
The final category played was ITALIAN CITY & TOWNS – $1600 had the Daily Double and Karen played this one with just a $2,000 clue on the board! Scores:
Karen bet $5,000. Her clue: In 2003 a campaign was launched to change the name of this Sicilian town, associated with the mafia due to U.S. pop culture. Her correct response put her at $21,800!
Marissa then negged the $2,000 clue — after Amy negged it as well — to give Karen the lock! In Marissa’s defense, though — had Karen gotten the clue correct, Karen would have had the lock herself!
Scores going into Final:
FJ! category: RANKS & TITLES
FJ! clue: In 1858 rule of India rule of India went from the East India Company to the British Crown & Lord Canning became the first holder of this title
Amy 800 – 800 = 0
Marissa 9700 – 8500 = 1200
Karen 21800 + 1800 = 23600
So Karen will be back to defend tomorrow!
