Everyone was friendly, it's true, but I still felt they were all secretly hoping I spontaneously combusted on stage like a Spinal Tap drummer. And Alex totally wanted to be Curt's best friend.
David! I didn't see you there! I really do kid. True, there was a soupcon of disappointment whenever you failed to lose, but just because the rest of us wanted to a chance to play more! I think mostly we were all really impressed at how good you were. It's too bad we couldn't let you know about the spontaneous post-taping hangout we had later that night at the hotel bar! Congratulations again on Game 4. The amount of money you won is just mind-boggling.

When/where does the champion change clothes if the other players are in the green room? Another thing I've never seen addressed is that I believe players are instructed to bring 3 different changes of clothes, so does this mean if a player wins Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, then they will presumably be repeating Monday's outfit on Thursday? Does anyone ever bring more than 3 outfits, or would this risk angering the Jeopardy! gods by presuming that one might be likely to win multiple games? If you win the final 3 days of the week, do you then go out and splurge on new outfits for the following tape day, assuming that you're not a local and the 3 outfits you've already worn are the entirety of the wardrobe you have with you?
Sorry for the slew of questions, but the mentions of David repeatedly returning to the green room got me curious. Some of this stuff has probably been addressed before on this board or the old Sony board, but if any past, present, or future contestant would like to answer some of these questions I would appreciate it.
I know this one! All the remaining contestants go back to the green room in between tapings for about 10(ish?) minutes while everyone resets. That's when the next two challengers are announced and go in to get miked and have their makeup retouched. The champion has a little "dressing room"/closet inside the green room (with a star on the door!), where they pop in to quickly change clothes before also heading into makeup again. And if you're there long enough, everyone goes to lunch together at a little quarantined area in the Sony cafeteria! As for outfits, I also wondered about that since they do tell you to bring only 3. I'm assuming they have emergency wardrobe options to help disguise or replace the combination of clothing you brought with you. In any case, I certainly didn't want to jinx myself by bringing more than 3! I don't know, David: just how many outfits did you bring with you (EDIT: possible spoiler? Please correct me if I am wrong!) (Though it is so much easier for guys to just bring extra ties with them...)
