Round 2 Categories: A Little TV – Judean History – State Song Lyrics – 1940s Lit – Gardening – The Way We “Wor”
Thaddeus found the first Daily Double in “State Song Lyrics” under the $1,200 clue, with 12 clues to go after it. He was in third place with $4,200 when he found it, but his score rose to $6,600 when a prior answer he gave in “Gardening” was deemed correct. Still in third place, he had $2,400 less than Catherine’s lead. He bet $3,400 and guessed Montana. That was WRONG.
Out West: “Blessed from heaven above, it’s the land that we love. This is the place!” show
4 clues later, Catherine found the last Daily Double in “Judean History” under the $800 clue. She was now in second place with $9,400, $2,200 less than Ricky’s lead. She bet $2,600 and thought it was the Roman Empire. That was WRONG.
Around 587 B.C. this empire conquered Judea & exiled most of the Jews. show
Ricky finished in the lead with a runaway $16,000. Catherine was next with $7,200 and Thaddeus was in third place with $3,200.
TWO of the contestants got Final Jeopardy! right.
Twentieth Century Fox was so happy with Trombone Shorty’s tones, they created an app called the “Wah Wah Machine”. Type in your text and it will be translated into the famous Peanuts “adult” voice.
Thaddeus got it right. He bet $2,950 and finished with $6,150.
Catherine also got it. Her $799 bet brought her up to $7,999.
Ricky wrote down The Minions. He lost his $1,599 so he won this match with $14,401. His 2-day total is $40,000.
Reversed Ruling: GARDENING ($1200) For best flavor, herbs should be harvested in the morning when these oils are at their highest concentration. Thaddeus answer (aromatic) was ruled wrong. Catherine got it with “essential oils.” The judges found that aromatic oils were a subset of essential oils.
Triple Stumper: This one was in “A LITTLE TV” ($1600) Ricky Ricardo’s signature song on “I Love Lucy”
There were a boatload of triple stumpers in this match. The rest of them will be up on our archive later.
