“JEOPARDY!” 4/21/17

Meghan Phillips (Lancaster, PA): Library & archives assistant
David Rigsby (Alexandria, VA): Social Security Administration attorney
CHAMP: Nilanka Seneviratne

BB:
U.S. HERSTORY
LITERATURE
ALMA MATERS
CROSSWORD CLUES “D”
SCHWARZENEGGER
IT’S NOT A TUBER!

At the halfway mark on the head, David has found the DD in the $1K U.S. Herstory block, currently in 2nd w/ $2600; he’s $1K behind early leader Meghan & Nilanka’s the early last-placer w/ $1800. David puts up all but $600.

This 1972 numerical clause was later renamed the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act.

“What is Title IX?”…ends segment #1 on a positive. They run of time on the $600 It’s Not a Tuber! prompt.

SOLE TS: $1K (Crossword Clues “D”)

CS:

Nilanka: $2,600/David: $8,200/Meghan: $6,600

DJ!:
BROKE ENGLISH
BALLET
ANIMALS ON THE MAP
1990s NO. 1 ALBUMS
THE ANCIENT WORLD
IT’S ALL SAM-ANTICS

To end the clues on The Ancient World, DD #1 comes to Meghan & the challengers are tied for the lead at $9400 a head, $1200 over the new kingpin. Here’s her $2K clue for sole possession of the lead:

Nineveh was a huge city of this land which, if the first two letters were removed, would spell a current Mideast activity.

“What is Israel?”…negative- what is Assyria? A Ballet answer’s the ticket to the final DD this week…it goes to Nilanka up the middle of the clues; he’s in 1st to the total of $12,200, $2K more than David & Meghan’s fairly far back w/ $5400. Nilanka only bets a $100 bill.

In 1967 this dancer was just 19 when he became a soloist at the Kirov Ballet of Leningrad.

“Who is (Rudolf) Nureyev?”…good choice on the low bet- who was Mikhail Baryshnikov? The BoT beat ’em to the $2K clue & those are the final scores before FJ! this evening.

ATTEMPTED LT: $6400
UNATTEMPTED LT: $4K
TOTAL DJ! LT: $10,400

CHALLENGER CORYATS:
David: $9,200
Meghan: $7,400

FJ! #160: 19th C. EUROPE

Published in L’Aurore on Jan. 13, 1898, it caused its author to be CONVICTED of libel.

MEGHAN: “What is Dangerous Liasons?” ($5001) = $399
DAVID: “What is Madame Bovary?” ($2K) = $8,200
NILANKA: “What is the Dreyfus Affair?” (Correct: What was J’Accuse…!?) = $3,799
