Jeopardy! recap for Tue. Sept. 25 – Here are today’s contestants:
– Courtney, an assistant editor from Louisiana, was a Mardi Gras queen;
– Vincent, a customer service manager from Illinois, had a mid-life crisis at age 24; and
– Nancy, a retired high school teacher from Texas, helped her small town get a library. Nancy is a one-day champ with winnings of $3,600.
Vincent found all three DDs but lost a net $200 on them, which helped Nancy secure first place going into FJ with $16,400 vs. $14,200 for Vincent and $8,600 for Courtney.
DD1 – QUEEN CONSORT – Cities in North Carolina, Virginia & Prince Edward Island are named for this consort of George III (Vincent lost $1,000)
DD2 – MYTHOLOGICAL ORIGIN STORIES – While delivering messages, Iris was said to travel along one of these (Vincent lost $1,200)
DD3 – OCEAN LINERS – In 1982, the QE2 was requisitioned to transport troops to these islands (Vincent won $2,000)
FJ – 20TH CENTURY PLAYS – From its preface: “It is impossible for an Englishman to open his mouth without making some other Englishman hate…him”
Nancy and Vincent were correct on FJ, with Nancy adding $15,000 to win with $31,400 and a two-day total of $35,000.
Triple Stumper of the day: No one recognized Queen’s recent lead singer from American Idol, Adam Lambert.
One more thing: Vincent was brought back because on his previous episode, a mistake on the show’s part could have cost him the game. If you ask me, they should have given him the money he could have won on that episode along with a return appearance.
DD1 – Who was Charlotte?
DD2 – What is a rainbow?
DD3 – What are the Falkland Islands?
FJ – What is “Pygmalion”?
