Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Regarding cheaters, yeah, there's probably a few, although I think it would be very difficult to cheat when you only have a 15 second timer going. This is why they give everyone another test at the audition. If you score 45 online, but only 20 in person...yeah, they'll figure it out. I also want to...

Re: Tuesday, May 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So much for no shout-outs as Tara included a greeting to her students by naming the school where she teaches. Are we certain this was taped after the rule was supposedly enforced? And we probably don't really know if TPTB give the contestants in this tournament the same spiel. But yeah, a little su...

Re: Andy's Millionaire Experience

So here's something grating me -- they call them 'winnings'. I feel like they're 'earnings'. Being able to answer questions on a quiz show is the result of work over many years. Just look at Holzhauer ... is that random? And besides, they get taxed as earnings as well. For some reason it's been bug...

Re: Andy's Millionaire Experience

Good stuff, thanks for putting this out for people to read. While it's fun for us to read this, it's even better for you to get everything down on paper while it's fresh so you can always refer to it months and years down the road. So if there's more you think or want to put down, do so. Not for us,...

Re: J! in the Media

The 5-time champ from the CNN clip was season 10 5-timer Tom Nichols: http://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=5111 Well, after all his talk about having a huge advantage on the buzzer after two games, he was in last place going into FJ in game 4. And then made the suicide wager. So perhap...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Andy played the game well and properly, both of which are unusual properties these days. I would bet that TPTB wanted him to discuss his thinking out loud because while he did so, it did not seem like he was wanting to. Not a big deal one way or another, will just be curious to hear his ta...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

20 meters in 1.63 seconds = how many mph? (18, 28, 38 or 48) In track and field they call the 1500m race the metric mile. 20 x 75 = 1500. So 1.63s x 75 is 1 x 75 plus a little more than half of 75. So roughly 75 + 45 = 120 seconds for one mile or 30mph. Close enough. In light of recent discussions ...

Re: J! in the Media

This: "I did not go to “Jeopardy!” expecting to win." I once posted this very question on Reddit (how many people go on J! thinking they can win?), and the overwhelming response was "everybody". Haha, I was right. It's *not* everybody There's a big difference between "I think I can win" and "I expe...

Re: Friday, April 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know that it was too late to make a difference, but come on, Robin, you have to bet big on that last DD! As already touched on, it was not too late to make a difference. A TDD followed by snagging say 5/6 of the 7 clues left would have prevented a lock. But no. Even in a category she obviously re...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I could be mistaken, but I believe it's against board policy to post what has happened after the game that this thread discusses. That way people who are behind in watching have the ability to read the thread once they have watched the game, like you, without being spoiled about future games. It's O...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The main problem with Catherine and Luke was that she started out considering all the ways to roll the numbers (i.e. including the outcomes in which Die A and Die B merely swap values, which is unnecessary when you're only dealing with odd numbers), and Luke went with this for 11 and 3, but switche...

Comments: It has not been a good week for ToC players on Millionaire. Come on now, even if you don't know or like dice numbers it's not that hard to figure out, lights/audience or not. Sad to see the early exit even with two heads working on it. Sad to see contestants go down in this fashion. Both ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

So the plus one is a history buff. Yet he isn't sure the 26th amendment was voting age. She should refer to him differently now. Then if he would have done the quick math on the outside percentage it would have been obvious. 60% indoors means 9.6 hours a day outside. But of course he was under inten...

Was Claudia taking a nap during the first game of the taping day? She knew what she was up against and kept going to the top of the board. There was a very small window in DJ she could have put some pressure on James had she found one. But then again, she was never going to make it a TDD. Just frust...

Plus the only one who would actually get to keep the $400 is James.
Yep. Plus he'll turn that $400 into $700 after FJ.

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That wasn't very sportsmanlike of either Adam or James. When Katie was at zero, I noticed James hadn't rung in for several clues. I thought "cool, he is going to stay put and let Katie have a shot". But Adam kept clicking away, oblivious to the opportunity for chivalry. And then James up and rings ...

James was most impressive with his knowledge base today.

LOL at Adam for holding back a dollar on his FJ wager. Not that it mattered of course.

Had Stephanie slept through the first three games of the taping day and didn't know what she was up against when uncovering a DD in the 2nd row?

James didn't have the same buzzer mojo today.

I said (expletive deleted) Hanoi Jane for FJ? Judges?
