"JEOPARDY!" 6/16/14

Andrew Winner (orig. from Spokane): Learning/development consultant
Andrea West (Columbia, SC): College composition instructor
TWO-MATCH CHAMP: Katie Frank (also Kung Fu black belt)

BB:

FINISH THE TERRIBLE RHYME
THE 1950s
HEADLINES FROM the ONION
ALAN RICKMAN ROLES
HONG KONG
PHOOEY

Halftime, Katie has $2,800 & leads Andrew by $1K & Andrea by $2,400. For the first DD of the wk., we go to the champ on the $600 '50s answer & see that Andrew's dipped $400. Of her $3,400, Katie puts up a grand.

One guest said of their '53 wedding in Newport, RI it was "...just like a coronation".

"Um...who are JFK & Jacqueline Kennedy?"...good enough. She's sitting pretty w/ $7,200 at the end; Andrew's reached the two thou mark & Andrea leads off Double J! at the $1,400 level.

ATTEMPTED LT: $1,600
UNATTEMPTED LT: $2K
TOTAL LT: $3,600

DJ!:

NOOSE MEN
BENS & JERRYS
CAPITALS AT STATEHOOD
BEAUTIFUL QUOTATIONS
DIALECTS
THE SECRET LIFE OF B's (each response has a silent B)

First things first, Andrea tries DDH...on the 2nd shot, one's hers on the $1,600 Dialect. She wagers 2/3 her three grand.

Rioplatense is a dialect of Spanish found in a small geographic area that includes these two South American capitals.

BLANK OUT- Buenos Aires & Montevideo were it. Katie gets one back on the $800 Noose Men & has $12K to play w/; she's only leading Andrea by two Benjamins & Andrew stands at $5,200. Champ Katie again risks a G-spot.

Just before he was hanged on Dec. 30, 2006, he mocked Shiite clerk Muqtada Al-Sadr.

"Who is Saddam Hussein?"...yep. Andrew ends this rd. of competition at $5,600.

UNATTEMPTED LT: $6K
TOTAL DJ! LT: $8,800

FEMALE CORYATS:
Katie: $12,400

ALEVE FJ! C #196: Word Origins

This noun meaning a secret plan comes from the Latin to breathe together.

ANDREW: "What is conspiracy?" ($3K) = $8,600
ANDREA: SAME ($10K) = $21,800
K: SWEEP ($5K) = $18K (the same thing that caused her to win her first game happens to her tonight)

EP. RATING: 6
