Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Seeing people go for it is so much better than seeing people walking with $20,000. I emphatically disagree. Way too many people state "I came here with nothing so.....". Well that's just stupid. You have x dollars in the bank which cannot be taken away if you so choose. That is real money unlike du...

Re: Monday, November 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yet how do you feel if you sit there having gotten FJ right from first place and yet you're going home? An optimal bet is only optimal if you know how others are going to bet. In this case, I don't see anything wrong with either bet. No. Just no. Please be sarcasm I'm not seeing the sign for. Nobod...

Re: Monday, November 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Shouldn't she assume Jonathan knows how to bet from second and therefore she's going to lose on a double stumper if she bets to cover? In that case she might as well go big or go home. Children's lit also seems like a category that someone could easily feel very strong in, so if she felt she was hi...

Jonathan - i don't want to win, here's a silly round number wager that will drastically reduce my winning chances. Mary Ann - Oh yeah? Well I don't want to win either. You think that's a poor wager? I'll show you a poor wager! Boardies without auditions - Let's pull all our hair out and get plastered.

Re: Friday, October 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also hate it when a horrible wager gets rewarded. This. Such a simple situation and contestants still have no clue how to wager. Sort of like not taking the time to cash in a 5-figure lottery ticket. Honestly a little confused as to why so many(so far) went with Ireland here, shire(to my knowledg...

Re: Monday, October 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good for Joanna for making it a TDD in the first round on a 2nd row clue. Erik went hunting for them and was rewarded in DJ. However in the endgame he failed to realize his precarious lead and kept going for the high dollar clues. Joanna was only one clue from preventing a runaway late, had she just...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'll never understand why a contestant like Karen with a strong +1 like Jeff ($100,000 winner) would waste her 50/50 before calling him down from the audience. (Maria Von Trapp or Tippi Hedren in West Side Story? Really?) Jeff knew it right away, and she could've saved her 50/50 for an even-money s...

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

I tend to pull for defending champs just for constancy, unless they happen to be one of those who jumps all over the board from one category to another. That annoys me more than anything else, because it is difficult to follow at home when we can't see the full category on our screens. Hence a cate...

Re: Monday, October 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

More to the point, a giveaway that it was not "Madame Bovary," the only other plausible candidate...since we knew from the category that it wasn't going to be English-language. HUH? Isn't the US still part of the world? Isn't American literature a subset of World Lit? Or is there some unspoken rule...

"I'm a twin, but dizygotic or monozygotic, also known as this type." (with "fraternal" ruled incorrect and "identical" given as the expected response) Perhaps the clue was intended to read " not dizygotic but monozygotic"? After seeing it, I'm betting the clue was written accurately and the pretty ...

Re: Monday, October 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would have taken “World Literature” as a clue that the answer is probably not a British or American novel. "Long" was a dead giveaway it was Russian. Good job reading between the lines! Like the small bet from first (hey, if you hate the category, put the game on 2nd getting it right if possible)...

Re: Monday, September 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In the first round, with a full category left and the DD uncovered, they went straight to the top of the board. In DD, William seemed to go DD hunting and was immediately successful. Then, to his credit, made it a TDD and was successful. But for some reason, he continued on in that category even tho...

Re: Friday, September 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Isn't every country in Europe and Asia Eurasian? I know I wasn't certainly thinking that. Sure. But why would the writers feel the need to use that particular adjective? Would they really use it if the response was Spain or Bhutan? I tend to think not. Exactly. As we all know, there are hints hidde...

Bravo on Emily for her FJ wager.
Absolutely. Nice wager.

Raymond on the other hand chose to forfeit any chance of winning.

DD2, you're getting your ass kicked, lucky enough to find a middle row DD, and you meekly wager $1k? Less than the value of the clue? Frustrating to watch. DD3, you're getting your ass kicked, really lucky to find a 2nd row DD, and you wager it all to give yourself a chance! Nicely done! In the end,...

There is no reason whatsoever for Andrew not to wager everything in hopes that Kyle makes a math error.
