SPECIAL: "Beat the Champions"

FACING ROB GRONKOWSKI: John Flores (pastor)

The first rd. for each sport's worth $100K, the 2nd's worth $50K & the 3rd's $25K, so winning all three rounds nets a contestant $175K. This special comes to you from the same people who brought you "Hell's Kitchen" (J. Rupert Thompson's the director).

Throwing the passes to Rob was his brother & former Brown Dan (John had to prevent Rob from catching a TD pass in the designated red box).

R1 (route was shown on field)- FAIL

R2 (Rob was handcuffed & John got giant hands)- FAIL
R3 (choir served as defense)- SUCCESS

FACING MISSY FRANKLIN: Ariel Raycene (journalist)

R1 (100m race w/ full-length head start for Ariel)- FAIL
R2 (bottom part of Missy wrapped in red stuff for 50m race)- FAIL
R3 (firefighters sprayed behind Ariel & at Missy; also, Missy had some empty water jugs attached to her)- SUCCESS

FACING SCOTTIE PIPPEN: Keith Creed

R1 (while Scottie was wearing an arm sling, Keith's mission was to score three times in :30)- ONE SHORT
R2 (score five baskets first to sink the other)- 5-3
R3 (Hotwing & Keith had to hold Scottie to less than three scores in :30; every foul added :03 to the clock)- TWO $  75K

Brandon has found his 4th DD at the end of Doctor Who & leads w/ $4,600, two grand more than Adrian & three more than Amy. Brandon wants to slide to the $5K mark & will if he can identify the Doctor Who...

Make it five in a row for Brandon to close out Oxygen & he just broke five figures w/ $10,600, a $2K margin over Adrian & a $3,600 cushion over Amy. This champ risks half the clue's face value.

Because the pressure lets the body absorb more oxygen, these decompression chambers can help blue babies.

We're both stumped on hyperbaric. One of the last four answers from Name the 19th C. Decade has the last one of the evening...Adrian picks it off from the $1600 one & is in a squeaker having $11,400, a grand off 1st-place Brandon & $1,200 more than the only lady playing in this match. The male challenger also gambles a thou.

"What are the 1870s?"...got 'em.

LET'S VISIT SAO TOME & PRINCIPE

HS:

Ankoor: $2,600/Brandon: $4,200/Amanda: $1,200

The DD's hidden amongst Let's Visit Sao Tome & Principe...Brandon claims it from its $800 screen having 1st place w/ $5,800, three G's more than his opponents. $1,400 is put at risk.

Sao Tome & Principe is an important nesting site for the Hawksbill variety of this marine creature.

"Um...what is...a duck?"- no. Ankoor then moves up to $3,600 & cuts the deficit to $800.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $600 (Let's Visit Sao Tome & Principe)

"STA" WITH ME
YOU'RE ALL I NEED

Brandon has another DD from the $1600 "STA" & currently leads Ankoor $6,800-$4,200. This man goes for $1,200 more.

Rarely-used word for a person who sells writing paper.

"Who's a...stationerist?"...should've left off the -ist. Maybe the 3rd time will be the charm from the $1200 clue about The War of 1912; Brandon now is ahead of the champ $11,200-$7K. The wager's $1,800.

An armistice ended when Turkey's government was overthrown by this "youthful" nationalist group.

0-for-3 on those. The last two Desert Plants just go away.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $1,600 (The War of 1912)

6/29/15 Quick News & Notes

-I think they're going to play Pay the Tuition on the next Back to School special. And I think 1/2 Off will be played on this Fri.'s 4th of July show.
-"CSI" will air before "The Late Late Show" this wk.; next wk., it'll be "Blue Bloods". 
-On the new "5th Grader", an incorrect answer sounds a new tone instead of the drum hit. 
-Vance DeGeneres used to work at "The Daily Show". Orig., the celebrity interview was only done in the 2nd segment of each ep. & was much shorter than it is today (usually in the 3rd segment). Also, the theme was much slower early in the run (& we saw Jon enter the studio at that time). There also used to be a couch.
-Jeep's pickup the Gladiator will be based off that Wrangler platform & is coming in the not-so-distant future.
-Upon review of most of the 2nd ep. for The Burgesses on "Feud", neither teammate had a five-zero turn in FM. 
-"$ale" returns to GSN starting on 8/3.
-A fire alarm went off early on "live with kelly & michael" today. 
-NBCUniversal & Donald Trump are no longer together. IMHO, I think his career's over should he end his Presidential campaign. 
-The latest season of "Steve Harvey" concluded two wks. ago. 
-At least for the new "Celebrity Family Feud", five drum hits are heard before the FM win cue.
-Tomorrow's $500 QD items are a plastic spoon, pre-written cupcake recipe & pink eraser. 
-Jack Carter passed away at 93.

"JEOPARDY!" 6/26/15

Ankoor Bagchi (CHI): Attorney
Kat Cahill (orig. from CIN): Pharmacy tech.
THREE-DAY CHAMP: Matt Pressman

BB:
DAISY CRAZY
THE MVP'S TEAM
SAINTS
REEDING
WRITING
ARITHMETIC

HS:

Matt: $1K/Kat: $3K/Ankoor: $400

The DD stays hidden until rd.'s end behind the $800 Saint that Ankoor grabs. Of his $3,400 (12 bills more than each of his opponents), he gambles a pity $400.

St. Cyprian was bishop of this old foe of Rome during a persecution of Christians; make that St. Cyprian the martyr.

"What is Constantinople?"...correct idea, but incorrect response.

ATTEMPTED LT: $2,800

DJ!:
THE EMMY AWARDS 1995
MOUNTAINS
SERIOUS NONFICTION
MIND & BODY
AMERICAN HISTORY
WORDS CONTAINING Q

Ankoor puts DD #2 under his belt from the middle answer about American History. This time, he has up to $4,600 at risk & his bet's $2K.

The Great White Fleet, 16 battleships that toured the world in 1907, were a shower of Teddy Roosevelt's foreign policy called this.

"What is the Roosevelt Doctrine?"...I don't think that even existed. He does locate 'em all, the last of which is under the $1200 page of Serious Nonfiction & Ankoor stands at $6,200, $1,200 more than the champ & two large more than the woman in the center. Ankoor continues to mostly play it safe by betting the answer's face value.

W/ this yr. for a book title, Charles C. Mann brought to life what civilization was like in the Americans before Columbus.

"What is 1491?"...sensible & correct. The Beeps of Time sound on the last two clues about The Emmys & Mind & Body.

SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $2K (Mtns.)
UNATTEMPTED LT: $2K ($800 & $1200 '95 Emmy Awards)

Pre-Final S:
