Jeopardy! Tournament of Tyrants: the transcript

Brought to you by: Janet Erwin and the makers of Head On.

Johnny Gilbert: And here's your host of Jeopardy,Alex Trebek!

Alex: Thank you, Johnny. And thank you to our viewers for tuning in for our very special Jeopardy! Tournament of Tyrants. Today, we're going to see three world leaders test their knowledge in some tough categories. But first, let's meet our contestants.

(theme music)

Johnny Gilbert: Our first contestant is a leftist Castro sympathizer and U.N. entertainment personality. Please welcome Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez!


Next, from the Central Council of the Islamic Society of Engineers, he's a hero to Hezbollah. Welcome Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad!


And, known both as the Leader of the Free World, and "the devil," let's welcome Mr. George W. Bush!


Alex: Contestants, I want to congratulate you. You were each carefully selected to compete in our Tournament of Tyrants from an overwhelming number of applicants who responded to our solicitation. On that note, I'd like to extend sympathies to several of our finalists who have since been ousted. Too bad you won't be able to join us.

Now, let's start off by looking at our categories: Today we have,"Religion," followed by,"The Holocaust." Next, "GOD." Each correct response will contain the letters G, O, D. Continuing, we have, "Nuclear Energy," "Jackie Chan Films," and finally, "Our Planet."

Contestants, please pick up your signaling devices. Hugo, you start us off.

Chavez: Alex, I'll try "GOD," for $200.

Alex: His fictitious character, Tony Soprano, is a tyrant of a different sort--a mob boss.
