"Jeopardy!" 7/10

PANEL:
Jennifer Morgan (Norcross, GA)- Stay-at-home mom
Prabhu Balasubramanian (Mountain View, CA)- Product manager
CHAMP: Stephanie Fontaine (whose three-day cash winnings total $54.5K)

To Start This Match:

CHAIRMEN OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE
AT THE BEACH
ILLINOIS STATE SYMBOLS
FACTS ABOUT AUTHORS
NO. 1 IN THE NFL DRAFT (they're looking for the team each time)
"PIC" ME!

The last clue At the Beach's the fourth Daily Double in a row for Stephanie, but she just started this game w/ $400 after being in the hole early on; Prabhu's $1K to the good & Jennifer's that much in the red. Stephanie goes for the first-place tie on the following:

The brand Gordon & Smith began by making these in a Pacific Beach, CA garage in 1959.


"What are surfboards?"...to four-figure land she goes. At the first TV break, Prahbu's just barely in Lock Game Territory w/ $2,200 & Jennifer does have $2,400, but that's still while she's in the negative numbers. The last Chairmen of the Federal Reserve clue goes unrevealed.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH:
$2,400
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,600
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $5K

Scores After the Round:

Stephanie: $5,400
Prabhu: $3K
Jennifer: Negative version of the man in the middle's bank

Double J! Listings:

SCIENTIFIC THEORIES
AUSTRALIAN HISTORY
OSCAR-WINNING DIRECTORS OF THE 1980s
FAMOUS AFRICAN AMERICANS
RELIGIOUS MATTERS
WHAT DO YOU "GN"OW?

The $1,600 Scientific Theory sends a DD out to Prabhu w/ $5,800; he has a $400 lead over Stephanie at the time. As for Jennifer, she's in danger of setting another record-worst score after DJ! & is currently tied for it at the moment (though she was $6,600 on the bad side early on this round of play). Prabhu, meanwhile, wagers $3K & the lead w/ the answer about to be shown:
 
When it comes to this, the weakest of the four known forces, it's more than just a theory- it's the law.


"What is gravity?"...that was the correct force to up him to $8,800. Then, the $1,600 monitor that goes w/ Religious Matters also gives him a DD shot now w/ $11,200 & he's $1,400 ahead of Stephanie; Jennifer's done better to knock her bad bank down to -$2,600. This is for $3K additional:

Her book The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany was published posthumously in 1912.

Time runs out on him when it came to Mary Baker Eddy...& after that subject's finished off on a positive note by Stephanie, TIME HAS EXPIRED ON JENNY'S APPEARANCE (leaving behind the last answer in both Australian History & Oscar-Winning Directors of the '80s).

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3,600 (all three Oscar-Winning Directors of the '80s middle clues)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $7,600
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $11,200

Head's Up Scoreboard:

Stephanie: $11,800
Prabhu: $8,200

CORYAT SCORES:

Stephanie: $12,200
Prabhu: $9,800
Jennifer: -$2,600

FINAL J! TOPIC:
Entrepreneurs.


In 1989, he said "You can't just ask customers what they want...by the time you get it built, they'll want something new."

I was thinking Donald J. Trump even before the final answer was shown, but Prabhu has jotted "Who was Steve Jobs?"...that late man was it for another $999. Stephanie...loses $4,800 & her crown w/ Bill Gates. But she still has slim hope for a ToC berth w/ $56.5K.
