Jeopardy! recap for Thur., Nov. 1 – Let’s meet today’s contestants:
– Kathleen, a writer from North Carolina, swam with a hungry shark;
– Jeff, a theater director from North Carolina, presents productions with his ex-wife; and
– Emily, a professor from Pennsylvania, was introduced to her husband by Franz Schubert. Emily is a two-day champ with winnings of $48,902.
Emily carried the lead into DJ and wasn’t seriously threatened after Jeff missed DD2, as his mild late rally fell short of breaking up Emily’s runaway at $15,600 vs. $6,800 for Jeff and $2,200 for Kathleen.
DD1 – A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE…OR THE SENATE – A representative from Idaho & also this medical profession, Mike Simpson introduced a resolution on water fluoridation (Emily won $800)
DD2 – WRITERS’ OTHER GIGS – His first novel “Presumed Innocent” was penned while he was an assistant U.S. attorney in Chicago (Jeff lost $4,600 on a true DD.)
DD3 – THE BIG LEAGUES – It was formally dissolved in April 1946 (Emily won $1,000)
FJ – HISTORIC GEOGRAPHY – A northern limit of the Roman Empire was a fortified road in Germany stretching 350 miles between these 2 rivers
Only Kathleen was correct on FJ, but Emily didn’t lose much, dropping $1,999 to win with $13,601 for a three-day total of $62,503.
Triple Stumpers of the day: No one knew the brand name partner of Edy’s ice cream is Dreyer’s, or could provide the middle word in the league that helps racial minorities adjust to city life, the National Urban League.
This day in Trebekistan: Alex seemed very satisfied with “my stuff at home” from the previous night’s trick-or-treating. I assume he went out as Gene Simmons, which must have been very hot in all that makeup in the summer.
DD1 – What is a dentist?
DD2 – Who is Scott Turow?
DD3 – What is the League of Nations?
FJ – What are the Rhine and Danube?
