Jeopardy! recap for Tue., Dec. 4 – Here are today’s contestants:
– Tiffany, a writer from Oklahoma, really “fear”-ed up a sermon translation;
– Alexander, an attorney from California, used to be a math teacher; and
– Dave, a retired police officer from Pennsylvania, was mistaken for homeless while in his undercover disguise. Dave is a one-day champ with winnings of $33,801.
Dave finished round one with a massive lead while both opponents were well in the red. Alexander tried to make a game of it by hitting both DDs in DJ, but it wasn’t enough to stop Dave’s runaway at $18,400 vs. $7,400 for Alexander and $2,400 for Tiffany.
DD1 – BIOGRAPHIES – “Prairie Fires” tells how in her 60s, ruined by the Depression, she started writing about her pioneer childhood (Dave won $1,000)
DD2 – 20TH CENTURY LEADERS – In 1990 this man succeeded in “rank” to the office of British Prime Minister (Alexander won $2,000)
DD3 – FLAVORS – Add an “s” to this word meaning “acrid” & you get a cocktail ingredient that helps in digestion (Alexander won $2,000 – he bet the maximum on DD2 and he should have wagered his entire $4,200 here, which would have kept him alive into FJ.)
FJ – THE NFL – For the 2018 draft this team tried to use a parrot to make a pick; the bird got stage fright
Dave and Alexander were correct on FJ, with Dave picking up $1,400 to win with $19,800 for a two-day total of $53,601.
Triple Stumper of the day: The players couldn’t provide the second word in the name of the long-running ABC Sunday morning news program, “This Week”.
That’s after our time: No one could identify the singer of the worldwide top 10 single “Locked Out of Heaven”, Bruno Mars.
DD1 – Who was Wilder?
DD2 – Who is Major?
DD3 – What is bitters?
FJ – What is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
