...her WORD OF THE DAY is WIN, because she's quadrupled her money to $60K!

J!: Now entering Sony Pictures Studios are Amy Ketterling's challengers (BTW, she's using the money she ends up winning here to help cut down a giant tree, which costs about $5K in her neck of the woods):

Sean Hansen (originally from Cleveland, OH)- An Assistant Professional of Management Information Systems who failed to pass the Teen Tournament audition about 23 yrs. ago
Lindsay Reese (originally from Escanaba, MI)- Post-doctoral researcher

Leading off w/:
FIRST LADY FIRSTS
ACTOR-DIRECTORS
BASIC BLACK
WHAT A TOOL
AN "UN"CATEGORY
THE PANAMA CANAL (all clues from Sarah Whitcomb)

The entire panel's separated by $200; Sean has the lead w/ $1,600, so Amy's a slight third place w/ $1,200 (and Lindsay likewise has $1,400). Later, Sean goes Daily Double Hunting w/ eight clues to go (last three in Basic Black & the entire category of The Panama Canal's waiting to be heard from)...but the champ beats him on the Video version of that w/ the last clue regarding The Panama Canal (the other clue on the board at the time was the $600 Basic Black one) & $5,200. She leads Lindsay by $1,200 & Sean by two grand. Amy wagers all but $200 of her stash for the night on this clue:

The labor of building the Canal was made possible by the discovery that mosquitoes spread deadly diseases; screens, fumigations & oily standing water helped quickly eliminate this disease & drastically reduce Malaria.

"What is Yellow Fever?"...$10,200! Lindsay ends this round w/ $4,600.

LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $3,200

Double J! Menu:
WHAT'S UP, PIERRE?
MEDICINE
21st CENTURY TONY AWARDS
ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS (also the name of an independent film company)
TALE SHIPS
IN COJUNCTION (each correct word/words have letters from "conjunction)

Amy's bagged another DD w/ the $1,600 Tale Ship; she's still in Lock Game Territory w/ $15,800, followed by Lindsay w/ $5,400 & Sean at $4,800. On this clue, Amy's trying for another...$4K:

The Fuwalda was the ship that stranded Lord John & Lady Alice, this character's parents.

"Who is Robinson Crusoe?"...no, it was Lord Greystone (aka Tarzan), but she maintains her positioning by $1K w/ $11,800. Later, Sean goes for the other strategy (High School Strategy) between the 21st Century Tonys & the $1,200 Roadside Attraction...& the Tony worth $1,600 holds the last DD of the evening. He's a respectable last w/ $8,400, w/ Lindsay at $10,200 & Amy back at $15K. After some thought, he makes a $7K bet for first:

2010's winner for a musical revival was this French-named farce.

"What is 'La Cage aux Folles'?"...this round's over w/ him now in front w/ $15,400! Left unplayed were the $400-$1,200 clues in that same subject besides the $1,200 Roadside Attraction.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4K
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $1,200 (What's Up, Pierre?)
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $5,200

Sean: $15,400

CORYAT SCORES:
Amy: $14,800

Sean: $10K

FJ! TOPIC: Art Styles.

Printmaker Richard Hamilton's credited w/ coining the name of this style, calling it "...designed for a mass audience".

Lindsay Reese has written "What is pop art?"...sure enough for another $5,201 & $15,401 in total. Amy Ketterling...is also right to match her score from last night, but it doesn't hold up this night, as she leaves w/ $32K while Sean Hansen has $30,001 to the good.
