"Jeopardy!" 7/23

If Stefan Goodreau wants to try to end the season as a five-time champion, he'll have to beat these players first tonight:

Rosanne Coloccia (Chandler, AZ)- Travel agent/writer
Zach Goldberg (Washington, D.C.)- Congressional aid that works for a former five-time undefeated champion from the Art Fleming era

Opening categories:

EAST ASIA
"Batman" TV VILLAINS
DANSWERS (each correct response is the name of a dance)
QUOTATIONS FROM "Bartlett's"
KILLED BY DEATH
"MOTOR" HEAD

After Coloccia gets the opening clue in East Asia, Stefan gets the next three clues in that category before hitting the Daily Double to conclude that category. Of his $1,800...he bets the farm on this:

Korea's west coast, including Inchon, borders this arm of the Pacific.

"What is the South China Sea?"...oops. It was a sea, but it was actually the Yellow. But he does run his score back up to $3,200 by the time we reach the first break; Goldberg has a grand and Coloccia's back to zero. At the end of the round...

Stefan: $7,400
Zach: $1,000

Rosanne: $1,400

...he's still in top form.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $800
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,000
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $2,800

DJ! Categories:

LITERARY ANALYSIS (the character must be given)
PUGILISM (this is about boxing)
BUSINESS AS USUAL
WE'RE OFF TO SEE THE LIZARD
FIRST & LAST NAME, PLEASE
ABBREV.

Immediately, Goldberg goes Daily Double Hunting...but after Literary Analysis and Pugilism get cleared out to start this round, Stefan's at $12,200 and leads both challengers by ten grand apiece. Goldberg later uses the High School Strategy on First & Last Name, Please...but Stefan beats him to the punch on finding one of the DDs under the $800 clue there with $15,400; Goldberg now has three grand. His wager this time is...six large. Here's the clue:

American author: _____ Rice ______

"Who is Edward Rice Burroughs?"...best known for writing "Tarzan", THAT IS RIGHT to go to $21,400! Not too long after that, he ends up finding the last one under the $2,000 Business As Usual Clue, while down to $20,600. His last DD wager of the evening is...$600.

Despite the name, not much has restricted the growth of this women's clothing company founded in Columbus, Ohio.

He has no idea- it was The Limited, dropping him to an even 20 grand for the moment.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $6,000
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $10,800
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $16,800

SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

Stefan: $22,800 (major lock game!!!)
Zach: $200
Rosanne: $200

CORYAT SCORES:

Stefan: $20,000
Zach: $200

Rosanne: $200

FJ! CATEGORY: Food.

This cheese was created in 1892 by Emil Frey & named for a New York singing society whose members loved the cheese.

ROSANNE:
Response: "What is Eminthaler?"
Wager: $50
Final score: $150

ZACH:
Response: "What is Munster"
Wager: $107

Final score: $93

Stefan...puts down another ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE with "What is Whiffenpoof Cheese"! Correct: What is Liederkranz? He wagered...















...$20,065! Ouch. He misses out on a $42K+ payday, but he does win another $2,735 tonight and now has a four-day total of $68,470. Hopefully he'll end the season as a five-time champion tomorrow.

The Whiffenpoofs are an a cappella group that sings for Yale. Stefan was trying to be funny because he didn't know. But you'd realize that if you got away from the Spongebob every once in a while, as opposed to just giving the guy a "ZONK ANSWER OF THE CENTURY!" thing.

YEesh.
