"Jeopardy!" 6/29

PLAYERS:
Matt Samberg (Pittsburgh, PA)- Attorney
Jia-Rui Cook (L.A.)- Media relations specialist & science writer
CHAMP: Anna-Lise Santella (whose two-day cash winnings total $21,199)

First in Terms of Topics:

SNAKES ON A PLATE
BASEBALL TEAMS BY STADIUM
A FRENCH TWIST
FLY GIRLS
HEATED WORDS
HISTORIC "DAYS OF OUR LIVES" (all acting clues from said soap's set)

After 16 clues, we reach the first break & Jia-Rui's the early leader to the tune of 3K bucks, followed by Matt w/ $2,600 & Anna-Lisa w/ $200 (but that was a negative figure early on). To end this round, the first Daily Double tonight's found somewhere within the "Days of Our Lives" clues...Matt's got it in the $600 screen w/ $5,600, compared to Anna-Lise's $2,400. He just wagers the face value of:

"Carrie, I'm really sorry I missed your wedding-- I know you marrying Austin was a once-in-a-lifetime event. Yes, I felt like Mary I of England on July 25, 1554, marrying Philip II of this Catholic country."


"What is Spain?"...is the right country for $6,200 & that's the end of the round.

$800 (Snakes on a Plate)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $1,200
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $2K

BEFORE & AFTER

Matt gets all but the $2K B & A to climb into Lock Game Territory w/ $10,200 to begin this edition of DJ! But eight clues into the round, Jia-Rui uncovers a DD in the middle of Science (fitting) w/ $5,800, while the champ's only improved to $2,800. Jia-Rui makes a $4K gamble on:

The name of this, seen in the heavens, is a translation of the Latin via Lactea.


"What is the Milky Way?"...that candy bar name's it to be within $400 of first place! By the time that theme's finished, the challengers are in a first-place tie at $11,800 each...& they're definitely still NOT tied once Matt gets a hold of the DD placed on the $2K Office Holder. He's solely in front w/ $13,800 & leads Jia-Rui by $3,200. The wager from that man will be three thou:

Supreme Court Justice, 1986- (he's been there the longest)


"Who is Antonin Scalia?"...he got him to get sent to $16,800! Not enough time for the last two C.C.: Me answers.
