Oz in Jeopardy!

Yes, I'm going to keep these coming until I run out — which should be just in time for the new season to start. Here's a surprising clue from the May 30 show, in the first round category "Party" Time (in which each correct response includes the word "party"), we find this $400 clue:

Defending champion Sam rang in first and correctly said, "What is a bachelor party?" He went on to win the game. I did a little digging, and sure enough, I found this account of the party online. As I suspected, it was Jerry Maren. I then confirmed the story in his autobiography. It turns out he wasn't the only one, as Billy Barty was there, too! Since Barty was in Under the Rainbow (alongside Maren), I guess that makes that bachelor party doubly Ozzy.
