Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

Recommended Posts

Week 45: four of five. I dithered amongst Washington, Arizona, South Carolina and a few others, and couldn't decide on a female-governed state in time.

4/5. I should really read The Compleat Angler because whenever it’s a clue on the show I always am like that old fishing thing but always forget the name!

This may have been my worst week ever - 1/5 (though I did get the tiebreaker...but so did most, I think)

Well, the party this week is at the Table For 1s and 0s. Glad I will have company, usually I'm pretty lonesome here. I'm bringing a bucket of wings and a six-pack of Mountain Dew for that good old Appalachian Tooth Rot thing. Plus freshly made choco-chip cookies to help wash down the Dew.

I remember when Mountain Dew's slogan was "Yahoo, Mountain Dew!" and the image was a hillbilly holding a jug, and the jug shooting its cork through the hillbilly's hat brim. Maybe that will be a FJ some day.

You're welcome.

2/5.  I'm very curious as to my overall score, but will wait one more week for the final total.

No, Alex, I won't be "enjoying" any of that during the coming 6 weeks. Continue to get well and see you when the new season starts!

I'll bet I'll do better getting all the FJs correct though. So there's that. Maybe I'll actually get a 5 week. Maybe.

2/5 for last week. It started so well... I should have gotten Izaak Walton, but didn't stand a chance for Arizona or Eichmann.

Actually, with "All-Star", 2 teen and teachers (all 4, according to Alex, are being rerun), that would be 8 weeks, unless they (a) really only show the early teen and not the teen we just saw a couple of weeks ago or (b) skip the first week quarter finals of the 2 teen or teachers week (hopefully not teachers week, otherwise we'll miss teebax).

Maybe they'll cut the filler from the All Stars and just show the games in condensed episodes?

Got all players recorded for last week; thanks everyone. One more week to go, then it's the Big Reveal of Winners. Remember, six of you will be winners!

I'm looking forward to seeing @teebax's episode on the Teachers Tourney. It was preempted here, and I got raked good in the Season 35 thread for complaining about that. I wonder if she has revealed who Mean Teacher was yet. I'd like to put a face to the name when that tournament gets rerun.

Ending strong (for me) - 3/5. Should’ve been 4 but I could not remember the Titanic boat name. I was really surprised none of the contestants got it either!

WEEK 46 — THREE asterisk
* 213. Landmarks. David Livingstone wrote of this discovery of his, “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”  *
214. Toys & Games. The prototype for this game that was introduced in 1948 was called Lexiko.
215. Children's Authors. This author & illustrator who won the 1964 Caldecott Medal was dubbed the “Picasso of children’s books.”
* 216. 1970s Album Reviews. Rolling Stone said this 1976 album had “the best & worst tendencies of L.A.-situated rock” & was an “unflattering portrait of the milieu.”  *
* 217. Historic Ships. 215 passengers were rescued when it sank in July 1918, about 500 fewer than it had rescued 6 years earlier. *

Since there was discussion about it here, I'll post here. The reruns will not include the Teen Tournament that just happened. Here is the schedule of reruns:

August Jeopardy schedule

So we will see @teebax again since the entire teacher tournament is included.

2/5, a meh ending...but with two *!! A first for me in the last week of the season! Thursday was one of those instagets that I knew before Alex was done reading the clue. I was floored when the contestants went 0/3! But happy to pick up the *!

This was fun, thanks to Saber for having this contest. I'm up for doing it again next season, although I may rethink that after my pathetic numbers are tallied up!

3/5 It was almost 2/5 but at the last second I got Carpathia.

Yes, many thanks to Saber for running this contest.  I would certainly like to do it again next year.

I am looking forward to seeing my final score, even though I know it's going to be in the lower half.

I'll say thanks now, too, @saber5055, since after I see my final score, I may not feel so grateful!  🙂  It has been a lot of fun!
