"Jeopardy!" 6/26

CONTESTANTS:
Jim Abbott (St. Augustine, FL)- Property appraiser
Jon Shoup (Charlottesville, VA)- Graduate student of Political Science
CHAMP: Margaret Swanson (whose three-day cash winnings total $48K)

Tuesday's Starting Topics:

HEALTH & NUTRITION
SPEECH!
WHAT'S DOT?
B.P.
LAST NAME'S THE SAME (three first names per clue)
THE SCREAM ACTOR'S GUILD

The last Speech! nets the Virginian the Daily Double w/ $1,600 to Jim's $400. Jon makes the clue worth its face value:

In 1862, he told The Prussian Diet "The great questions of the time" will be decided by "...iron & blood".


"Who is Wilhelm?"...no, he was instead Bismarck & he's back to $600. Margaret's in first place at the midway point of the round w/ two big ones & Jim's gone to $1,800. Time expires before Health & Nutrition can be concluded.

NO LACH TRASH THIS ROUND

Post-J! Round Scores:

Margaret: $3,800
Jon: $4,200
Jim: $3K
 
Double J! Subjects:

SITCOM EPISODES (two per answer)
ANTONYMS OF BIBLE BOOKS
SCULPTURE
OTHER RED, WHITE & BLUE FLAGS
JOHN STEINBECK
TRAVELS WITH CHARLEY

The $1,200 Travel W/ Charley means Jon's second DD of the game w/ $9,800; he's not quite in Lock Game Territory yet, because the champ's at $5,400. Jon bets 22 of his 98 $100 bills on this:

Prince Charles traveled to Aberystwyth, where he learned this language to prep for a 1969 investiture.


"What is Welch?"...$12K! Left behind just before time runs out are the $2K Sculpture & the $1,200 John Steinbeck clues, but not the $1,600 Steinbeck answer- Margaret intercepts the DD hidden back of there while she has $8,200. Jon was in LGT a minute or so ago, but now he's not even w/ $15,200 & Jim's doubled up & then some to $6,600. Because she makes a $2K bet, this will decide if she stays mathematically alive for Final J!:

"Jody put out his bruised hand again, and..." this title animal "...let his nose be rubbed".

"What is the mouse from Of Mice & Men?"...GAME OVER- that was referring to The Red Pony.
