TONIGHT'S SEMIFINALISTS: Kelton, Joe & Tori
MAJOR LEAGUE SPORTS CITIES
YOUR FRIENDS, THE POLICE
"A" "P" HISTORY
Kelton was on his way to a sweep in Religions to start the night, but a TS on the $800 clue leaves him w/ $400 & Joe at -$800 as Kelton closes that category out w/ the DD. To put him back at $1,400:
Members of this Indian religion are expected to join the Khalsa order & are NOT allowed to cut their hair.
"What is Sikhism?"...correct Kelton is. He currently has $3,800 while in LGT at the recess; Tori has $1,200 & Joe's $1K on the plus side.
SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $800 (Religions)
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $1K (Academic Anagrams)
TOTAL LT: $1,800
Post-J! R Totals:
Joe: $7,200 (who SWEPT Major League Sports Cities)
The Offerings in DJ!:
CROSSWORD CLUES "E"
Tori's going DDH instantaneously in the center of English Lit...she eventually finds one under its last remaining clue for $800 w/ $2,400; Joe's now leading Kelton $7,200-$5,800. She's going big or going home:
In this futuristic but NOT Orwellian novel, Mustapha Mond was called "the resident controller for Western Europe".
"What is A Clockwork Orange?"...SORRY, it was Brave New World. The third & final DD...is found by Kelton w/ the remaining Biology answer in the $800 box while having $12,200; he leads Joe by $3,800 & Tori has gotten $2,800 back. The leader tries to make it back into the driver's seat by gambling five biggies- here comes the clue:
Normally, when the glucose level in the blood's high, the pancreas secretes this hormone to lower it.
"What is insulin?"...GOT IT!
ATTEMPTED LT: $6,800
UNATTEMPTED LT: $3,200
TOTAL DJ! LT: $10K
Pre-FJ! Score Counts:
Tori: $1,600- MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED (& she had to get the last $800 Skip It answer just to make it to Final w/ twice its face value)
FJ! TOPIC: Capital Cities.
It's criss-crossed by dozens of "peace walls" that separate its Catholic & Protestant neighborhoods.
TORI: "What is Dublin" (ALL-IN) = BUSTED
JOE: EXACT SAME FATE AS TORI
KELTON: SAME Q (Correct: What is Belfast?") = BUSTS OUT TOO!!!!!!
FIRST TOTAL WIPEOUT IN ANY "J!" GAME SINCE JUN. 12, 1998!!!!!!!!!!
THIS IS ALSO THE SECOND TIME THAT'S HAPPENED IN A NON-TOURNEY FINALE GAME THAT I KNOW OF. I don't believe it. Because of that, there will be a Wild Card berth for the finals available to those who didn't finish w/ $0 or less last night & tomorrow.
VB: FJ! TOTAL EPIC FAIL
