Jeopardy! recap for Wed., Jun. 27

Jeopardy! recap for Wed., Jun. 27 – Here are today’s contestants:

– Scott, a librarian from Indiana, who adds to his inherited collection of Christmas nutcrackers;
– Amy, a library youth services associate, who is a tap dancer and found out that Alex doesn’t have a few years to learn to do it himself; and
– Andrew, a lawyer from Arkansas, who did an unimpressive move in a two-person boys beauty pageant. Andrew is a one-day champ with winnings of $1,198.

Scott had a net loss of $1,000 on the two DDs he found, but that didn’t stop him from holding first place into FJ with $15,800 vs. $13,000 for Andrew and $9,200 for Amy.

DD1 – CRAFTS & HOBBIES – Terms used in this craft include batting, binding and block of the month (Scott lost $2,000)

DD2 – 4-LETTER U.S. CITIES – It’s home to the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum and Hall of Fame (Amy won $2,200 on a true DD.)

DD3 (video) – POET-POURRI – This romantic poet who wrote “The World Is Too Much With Us” had a perfect last name for his profession (Scott won $1,000)

FJ – SPORTING EVENTS – This annual event first held in 1934 includes play in areas named Pink Dogwood, Flowering Peach & Azalea

Everyone was correct on this FJ which easily could have been a top-row clue, with Scott adding $10,201 to win with $26,001.

Amy bet $6,601 on FJ, but the better percentage play for her would have been a much smaller wager that would give her the victory in the event that everyone missed.

Triple Stumper of the day: No one could come up with the “Kid A” band that didn’t get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the first try, Radiohead.

This day in Trebekistan: Alex seemed to blame Andrew’s low winning score on the previous show to his “nerves”, while the real culprits were everyone missing FJ and terrible wagering by his opponents.

Correct Qs:
DD1 – What is quilting?
DD2 – What is Vail?
DD3 – Who was Wordsworth?
FJ – What is The Masters?
