(correct response beneath the contestants)
We may have lost Alex, but the show must go on. Alex wouldn’t want it any other way. Please, let’s remember him over the next five weeks of banked episodes, and then afford him the same respect to his successors that we afforded Alex when he replaced Art Fleming in 1984.
|Henry Baer, a software engineer from Lafayette, California
|Amanda Minafo, an undergraduate advisor from San Francisco, California
|Charlie Fonville, a producer originaly from Wichita Falls, Texas (1-day total: $30,000)

George Marshall served as Secretary of State under Harry Truman from 1947 to 1949 and is best known for what became known as the Marshall Plan (originally the European recovery Program), an aid plan for the post-World War II recovery of Western Europe. Stikker, in his “Men of Responsibility”, stated that The Netherlands was only able to recover from World War II through both American aid and the determination of the Dutch people. In all, 18 European countries received American aid from the Marshall Plan.

- It’s important to remember: often a contestant’s phrasing is clipped or crosses with Alex calling on a contestant, especially if the contestant is on a roll. Please remember that and remember that in-studio the sound is much clearer than at home. If a contestant fails to phrase, Alex will tell us.
- The results of this game show just how crucial it is to “STAY CLAM” – three of Charlie’s 5 incorrect responses were rebounded by Henry, leading to a Henry victory even though Charlie was dominant on the buzzer.
