Despite the fact they had two strikes late in their game, they’re going for the three grand with this:

AFLAC VIDEO BONUS: Located in Washington State, this super-sized dam boasts enough concrete to circle the Equator twice. Harnessing the free-flowing power of the Columbia River, what’s the name of this massive dam?

They finally say the Grand Coulee Dam…AND THEY’VE JUST WON THREE LARGE!

In Game #2, Ivan Hernandez plays a 25-block game to Battery Park City…BUT HE WIPES OUT, SO THIS SHORT GAME WAS COMPLETELY A LOST CAUSE.

The last game of the week attempts to reach Anna, Cambra, Mary & Nikki’s destination of Third & 60th…including an RLC about some of the fluids you need to have checked in your cars from time to time, THEY RUN THE TABLE AND QUIT WITH $1,050!

Jeopardy!: Paul Kursky’s second pair of challengers as the defending champion are:

Katherine Thompson (NYC)- Graduate student in Psychology
Jon Zerolnick (L.A.)- Non-profit policy researcher

Friday’s first six categories are these:

CLASSIC NOVELS’ ORIGINAL TITLES
WHO’S YOUR DADDY?
USUALLY INCORRECT “JEOPARDY!” RESPONSES (each correct response is something you might say when you buzz-in and draw a blank on a clue)
LIVING THINGS
THE SHORT LIST
“EAK” FOR YOURSELF

Just before the first batch of commercials, Zerolnick slightly leads Kursky, $2,000-$1,800, while Thompson isn’t far behind either of them with a grand. The first Daily Double of the night is uncovered by Kursky under the $800 Classic Novels’ Original Titles clue with both guys tied for the lead at $2,400 each; Thompson trails them both by $600. His wager is $600. For the outright lead, here’s the clue:

This small-town Sinclair Lewis novel began as “The Village Virus”.

He BLANKS OUT on “Main Street”, so we drop him to $1,800. But he then ties the game back up at $2,400 apiece by being correct on the middle Living Things clue. At the end of this round, he’s tied with Thompson this time at $3,400 a player; Zerolnick’s down to $1,600.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,600
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3K
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $5,600

DJ! Subjects:

LAKES & RIVERS
TV MILLIONAIRES-- WHO PLAYED ‘EM?
TELL TCHAIKOVSKY THE NEWS
HERE, KING!
“SIT”!
STAY!

Shortly after taking over sole possession of first place, Thompson finds one of the DDs attached to the $800 clue about Lakes & Rivers with $5,800; Zerolnick’s now up to $2,800. She wagers two C-notes on this clue read by Kelly Miyahara:

Of the five Great Lakes, Superior is the farthest North; this one is the farthest South.

“What is Heron?”…NOT it. It was Erie, so her lead over the champion falls to $400. Early in the second half of the round, Zerolnick closes out the DDs with the one on the $1,600 Here, King! clue and $5,200; Kursky’s still ahead of him by a decent $4,200 margin with $9,400 and Thompson’s currently at $3K. He only bets a thou on this:

After ruling for 50 years, George I was assassinated on March 18, 1913 and Constantine I became king of this country.

“What is Belgrade?”…and we have a DD SHUTOUT to wrap up the week, because that's an American city instead of a country. Correct: What is Greece? And with that, he goes back to $4,200 and Kursky’s in Lock Game Territory, at least for the time being. As the round ends, Zerolnick uses the High School Strategy, starting with the $2K Here, King! clue.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $12,400
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $14,800

SCORES FOLLOWING DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:

Paul: $10,600
Jon: $6,200
Katherine: $1K- MATHEMATICALLY OUT

CORYAT SCORES:

Paul: $11,200
Jon: $7,200
Katherine: $3K

FJ! TOPIC: Sports Venues.

Built in 1914 and named for the club’s owner in 1926, it’s the oldest National League ballpark still in use.

KATHERINE:
Response: “What is Wrigley Field?”
Wager: $899
Final score: $1,899

Jon Zerolnick…instead went for the home of the NY Mets, Shea Stadium (which NO LONGER exists), so that will cost him $4K and likely send him home as the night’s runner-up with $2,200. Paul Kursky agreed with…JON, so he adds $1,900 for a total take of $12,500 this evening and a three-game total of $51,801!
