TPiR Retro Quickcap: 5/22/2014

First Four: Elizabeth Campbell, James Tumis, Leslie Jahns and Marcus Minsky
Cover Up: Marcus ($1,390) covered up the costs of his new Scion (GT: $23,583)

Next up: Carol Lane
1/2 Off: Leslie ($1,268) didn’t even get half (GT: $1,488)

Next up: Navada Weaver
Side by Side: Navada ($622) fell short on the wayside (really unfortunate, but maybe if she had watched some Wheel of Fortune and paid attention to the values of trips she’d had gotten the idea…)

SCSD #1 Winner: Navada (Banked $1K — $1,622)

Another arrival: Jose Esparza
That’s Too Much: Carol ($994) paid way too little — She might not’ve been aware of that carmaker’s existence, but don’t you think the midsize sedan would be among the more expensive of the staple?

Coming next: Hana Tafarella
Pick-a-Pair: Elizabeth ($1,289) successfully paired up the almonds and coffee beans (GT: $9,218) (This game was difficult to watch for those watching on standard definition as the camera shot cut off the two items on the end)

Last to join us: Nona Charles
Shopping Spree: Hana ($1,490) went over budget because of the treadmill

Off to the FFBC: James

SCSD #2 Winner: Carol (Also won $1K — $1,994)

Showcase Winner: Carol ($26,810)

Games Won: 2 of 6 — Final Total: $64,531

James, that’s enough.


WoF Quickcap: 11/8/2022


These next vets have likely taken commands from a BRIGADIER GENERAL at some point
Rory Scott, an Army vet after 8 years as an air combat medic and also a model from Caledonia, MI
Olga Briggs, a Marines vet after 5 years as a supply admin. and personnel specialist from S.D.
Gary Wood, a Coast Guard vet who retired in 2000 as a member of a helicopter rescue team from Casper, WY

Final Scores: Gary: $12,300/Rory: $21,954 cash & St. Lucia/Olga: $1K CASUALTY

GT: $35,254
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash: $6,900

Scary moments

-I was afraid Olga would flub on the last row of the FRESH _____ crossword puzzle in R2 after picking up the MDWand she does w/ K on ALASKA (Adam Alam also thought the last word would be SHARK like Olga did). We got a $0 puzzle win as a result.

-Disastrous R3 filled w/ duds and penalty spins.

-Full R4 $1.5K minimum Speed-Up took a while.

I’m NOT too hopeful after such a downer of a maingame: PLACE/THING/WAYW?

$100K Bonus Round: Rory watches the $40K sink in a FRIGID POND.

ant0824’s Rating: 6 (When somebody sweeps TTU, this keeps my rating from a 1 or a 2)

Olga has to go back to boot camp and isn’t allowed to vote.

J! Quickcap: 11/8/2022 — Tournament of Champions Exhibition

Just got home from voting. Was out for longer than I anticipated.

Jeopardy! logo

Ladies and gentlemen, OUR BIG THREE!
-Mattea Roach (🏳️‍🌈), a writer & podcaster from Toronto, Ontario, Canada 🍁
-Matt Amodio, a postdoctoral researcher from New Haven, CT
-Amy Schneider (🏳️‍⚧️), a writer from Oakland, CA

Remember that this game will have no effect on the tournament standings or matchups, and there will be no monetary prizes given out from it and the winnings accumulated from this match will not be kept.

Correct/Incorrect: 51/18
Rebounds/Rebound Attempts: 6/13

Unplayed Clues (Pts. left on the board): 4 (1,600)

Coryat Score: an underwhelming 26,000 (-3,000 vs. yesterday)
Lach Trash: 6,600 from 5 triple stumpers (+1,200 and +/-0 TS’s vs. yesterday)
ANOTHER SEASON-WORST IN CORYAT LOST TO INCORRECT RESPONSES (less double-correct responses): a painful 19,800 (+2,200 vs. yesterday)

Well, I guess that’s to be expected when nothing’s at stake…

Daily Double Correct Answers: 3

Pre-FJ! Scores: Mattea: 17,600 (LOCK)/Amy: 7,400/Matt: 3,600 (Combined: 28,600)

And of course we’re up for a multi-part FJ! today. -___-

Final Jeopardy! Correct Answers: 1

Winner: Mattea (17,600)

The semifinals will be underway tomorrow where Amy Schneider will face off against Maureen O’Neil and Tyler Rhode.

Part of the reason this match was envisioned was due to the fact that this episode is likely to be preempted in many stations for coverage on the 2022 Election. Another was because Michael Davies and J! fans were concerned that Matt, Amy and Mattea may not play against each other otherwise, and also to get them on equal footing w/ the other semifinalists and work out their kinks.

My Rating: N/A (not leaving a rating for an exhibition match meant for practice & fun)
