Jeopardy! recap for Tue., May 14 – Round two, game two of the 2019 Teachers Tournament gave us this matchup:
– Julia, 10th grade chemistry from Texas, whose daughter does a self-fist bump;
– Francois, 11th grade physics from New York, likes how nature gives you the correct answer; and
– Benjamin, middle school English from Connecticut, volunteers to help motivated students in his area.
Francois regained the lead on DD3 and came up a bit short of a runaway at $16,600 vs. $9,400 for Julia and $8,000 for Benjamin.
DD1, $600 – IT HAPPENED IN MAY – These criminals known for robbery and violence were shot dead on May 23, 1934 (Benjamin won $3,200 on a true DD to take the lead from Francois.)
DD2, $1,600 – THE MORE COMMON “C” WORD – Ectothermic (Francois lost $3,000 from his leading total of $10,400)
DD3, $1,600 – A PLACE ON THE LAKE – Abu Simbel is on the shore of this body of water that didn’t exist before 1970 (Francois won $2,000 from his score of $8,600 to take the lead from Julia.)
FJ – AMERICAN WOMEN – In 2006 Arizona State University renamed its college of law in honor of this history-making woman & longtime Arizona resident
Francois and Julia were correct on FJ, with Francois adding $2,201 to advance with $18,801.
Triple Stumper of the day: No one came up with the former SNL cast member who stars in HBO’s “Barry”, Bill Hader.
Missing the layups: After a miss with “lightning bug”, the remaining players didn’t ring in with firefly, and an incorrect response of Shelley didn’t result in a rebound with “the other one”, Byron. Note that sometimes, these missed layups are a result of stoppages and retakes of the clues, rather than the players not knowing the correct responses.
DD1 – Who were Bonnie and Clyde?
DD2 – What is coldblooded?
DD3 – What is Lake Nasser?
FJ – Who is Sandra Day O’Connor?
