"Jeopardy!" 2/19

LAST REVEALED ToC ENTRANTS: Ashok Poozhikunnel, Dave Leach (who got laid off after his run on the show & is now in a board game business) & Patrick Quinn

In the next half-hr., we're about to find out if Stephanie Jass' $0 bet in FJ! was a huge mistake.

J! R Board in the Meantime:
WHO'S ON FIRST?
SAY "LA-V" (each right response starts w/ LAV)
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
TILE LAND
COMPUTER LINGO
THE FUTURE (video clues from Al Gore)

Patrick chooses the first Who's on First? answer & is correct, then he starts DDH by jumping to its $800 spot...it hasn't been found yet, but he does have $2,600 & is only $200 behind Ashok for first place; Dave's a close third w/ $2K. The DD does appear...for the $800 clue on The Future for Patrick w/ $3,200; he's $400 ahead of Ashok for the early lead & Dave's back to $1,800. Patrick makes this a thousand-buck clue:

Population & economic growth threaten our natural resources; one example's the erosion of this, the upper six inches of farming land that provides 99% of human food.

"What is top soil?"...& he grows to $4,200! His end-of-R1 score turns out to be $4,600, just $200 over Ashok; Dave starts DJ! at $3,200.

ATTEMPTED LT: $1,200
UNATTEMPTED LT: $1,600
TOTAL LT: $2,800

Another Six-Category Board For Your Pleasure:
BRIDES OF SHAKESPEARE
THE LIFE OF A GENIUS
G.I. JOES
THE BEGINNING, MIDDLE & END LETTER
THE WIZ
EASEL DOWN THE ROAD

Patrick misses the last two Brides of Shakespeare answers early to plummet to last w/ $1,800. A DD flies to Dave from the middle of The Life of a Genius & he has $4,800; Ashok trails him by $400 for the lead. Dave wagers $2.5K & here's his clue:

They'll want your intellect at these Murray Hill, NJ labs, the longtime research & development arm of at&t.

"What are Bell Labs?"...they are & he's the new leader w/ $7,300! By the time he's almost doubled that to $14.5K, he grabs the last one in the $1,600 square for The Beginning, Middle & End Letter; Ashok's $5,300 behind him and Patrick's still got ways to go w/ $3K. Dave bets $3.5K & there are only five answers left on the board after this one:

A: The crop feed also called purple medic.

He can't get alfalfa off his tongue.

ATTEMPTED LT: $3,600
UNATTEMPTED LT: $7,200
TOTAL DJ! LT: $10,800

Scores Heading Into FJ!:
Patrick: $5K
Dave: $12,600
Ashok: $12,400

CORYAT SCORES:
Patrick: $4,800
Dave: $14,800
Ashok: $12,400

FJ! CATEGORY: The New 7 Wonders of the World.

On the new list chosen in 2007, this wonder designed by Heitor Da Silva Costa is the only statue.

PATRICK: "What is the Christ in Rio de Janeiro?" ($4,011) = $989
ASHOK: "What is the statue of Mary in Brazil?" ($400) = $12K
DAVE: "WHAT IS CHRIST THE REDEEMER?" ($2.5K) = $15,100- STEPHANIE MAKES IT AFTER ALL!
