Jeopardy! recap for Thur., Jan. 30

Please welcome today’s contestants:

– David, an accounting manager from Washington state, dressed as a 4th-grade Alex for Halloween;
– Michelle, a managing director from Delaware, needs pads to be the second-best roller skater in Delaware; and
– Joshua, a tour company owner from Hawaii, was an apprentice jellyfish wrangler. Joshua entered the game as a one-day champ with winnings of $16,400.

Joshua once again proved to be an effective DD shopper, scoring on both in DJ and taking first place into FJ with $21,000 vs. $13,400 for Michelle and $4,200 for David.

DD1, $400 – BOOTS – Chukka boots are said to get their name from a period in this sport (Michelle lost $2,000 from her score of $3,400.)

DD2, $2,000 – WHO SPOKETH IN THE BIBLE – “Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God” (Despite not knowing the previous two clues in the category, Joshua bet his entire $3,000 and was correct.)

DD3, $2,000 – MEDICAL PROCEDURES – A keratoplasty is another name for one of these eye part transplants (Joshua won $5,000 from his total of $12,800 vs. $11,400 for Michelle.)

FJ – ADVERTISING & MUSIC – In 2008, 34 years after it made Billboard’s Top 10, this song title was used by a southern state in a tourism campaign

Michelle and David were correct, with Michelle adding $4,500 to win with $17,900.

That’s before our time: Very, very depressingly, no one realized that a first-round clue’s reference to a 1960s “music group’s boots” was about the Beatles.

Correct Qs:
DD1 – What is polo?
DD2 – Who is Gabriel?
DD3 – What is the cornea?
FJ – What is “Sweet Home Alabama”?
