More information about Final Jeopardy:

The usage of the term “seven-year itch” changed from its original usage (a term to describe chronic scabies) to its current usage (the psychological term suggesting that marital happiness begins to decline around the seven-year mark, and the inclination to become unfaithful) in the mid-to-late 1950s, thanks to George Axelrod’s 1952 play The Seven Year Itch. It was adapted into the 1955 film which famously stars Marilyn Monroe (credited as The Girl). Filming resulted in one of the century’s (and Monroe’s) most notable photographs, that being Monroe standing on a subway grate while her white dress is being blown upwards by a passing train.

Andy’s Thoughts:

  • Glad to see that Anneke isn’t going to need to find a new hobby for at least another day!
  • Did Alex ever butcher the pronunciation of that CONNECTIQUETTE category. Sheesh!
  • Sousa is my favorite composer; unfortunately, I do not possess the ability to telepathically send correct responses back in time to late November.
  • I didn’t think Anneke was going to make the comeback she did, though, and then she got 7 of the final 8 clues correct going into Final Jeopardy.
  • Ever wonder why a contestant’s promotional photograph on the show’s website is different from what they wear on the show? Look closer. Often the player’s got some sort of checked pattern in the promotional picture; the pattern does not do well on television, and they’ve usually been asked to change before the game starts!
