Jeopardy! recap for Tue., Mar. 19 – Please welcome today’s contestants:
– Megan, an attorney from Washington, D.C., whose dog “pays respects” in a special cemetery;
– Bren, a store manager from Washington state, plays guitar with his rock-averse son; and
– Lindsey, a physician from Pennsylvania, looks at all sides of health policy. Lindsey is a three-day champ with winnings of $79,602.
In a masterful performance, Lindsey successfully shopped for DD3 (taking away the best chance for a comeback by her opponents) and carefully thought it through before responding correctly. Lindsey then went on a late roll as usual, cruising to a runaway with $26,400 vs. $5,200 for Megan and $3,200 for Bren.
DD1, $600 – COLLEGE – This Big 10 school in Indiana kicked off in 1869, named for one of its early financial supporters (Bren lost $800)
DD2, $1,200 – VOCABULARY – “The Age of Innocence” says the hue of this building material “coated New York like a cold chocolate sauce” (Bren lost $1,400)
DD3, $1,600 – PARK-ITECTURE – Vegetation in Richmond Park in England, home to red and fallow types of these, has a 5′ high “browse line” they nibble below (Lindsey won $2,000)
FJ – COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD – Because its overseas empire was dwindling, Spain declared war on this much closer country across the water on October 22, 1859
In a complete switch from the first two rounds, Lindsey was the only player to miss FJ. Still, she was able to fulfill Alex’s pregame prediction of breaking the $100K mark, dropping $5,000 to win with $21,400 for a four-day total of $101,002.
Triple Stumpers of the day: No one knew the name of Doonesbury’s Uncle Duke or the middle word in Eugene O’Neill’s “The Emperor Jones”.
DD1 – What is Purdue?
DD2 – What is brownstone?
DD3 – What are deer?
FJ – What is Morocco?
