Thanks for the enthusiasm, everybody! It's been fun putting this show together and even more fun getting it out into the world! You guys *get* us, and we are so grateful for that.
A few answers ---
YouTube probably likes it best when you watch the whole ad, but that's just a WAG because why wouldn't they? (I will say that I have to watch the same ads you do every time I post a clip or change it, so I'm really up on my YouTube ads these days. And some of them are pretty catchy, I have to say.)
BUT -- what I know for sure that YouTube FREAKING LOVES is when you take three actions --- Comment, Like, and Favorite. YouTube is all about *engagement* these days, and those actions are proof of engagement. Those numbers make a huge difference to us. And, of course, the very best thing you can do is SUBSCRIBE. YouTube goes ape over that.
About 4th round betting --- we actually taped a detailed explanation of that at our last taping after several people commented on YouTube with this same question (comments!!) and we're going to start inserting the more detailed version in the next couple of weeks. Players are told in the break between the 3rd and 4th rounds that they can bet any or all of their money AT THAT MOMENT, split any way they want between their 2 categories. (They must bet at least $1 on each category.) The players make this "Double Final Jeopardy" wager then and only then --- and it's a killer to work out the strategy. In Jeopardy, as you all know, you have to bet according to the math, not according to how you feel about the category. Here, people are definitely betting on how they feel about those 2 subcategories. Anyway, there is no stopping after their first subcategory has been played to let them make bets based on those standings --- we just push forward and let it all play out based on those original wagers. Which is brutal in a very delightful way.
