And now my wife won't get to complain when female contestants don't wear heels. Not sure why, but it's a pet peeve of hers.
That's sexist. Why doesn't she complain when male contestants don't wear heels? :oops: :D

I'd do it if for some reason it gave me an advantage......

Re: Tuesday, October 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Gotta give props to Carlos on going big, both on the late DJ clue and the TDD in single. Agreed that final sequence sure made it exciting. The first DD was good, the late DJ one was terrible. If he misses he's locked out going into FJ, therefore a TDD is a must. That $2500 he left on the table mean...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

It really irritates me - sufficiently to register in order to make this comment - to see the consistent expression of the idea that women who audition are "guaranteed" to get on the show, while poor men don't have an equal shot. I've auditioned three times and not been asked to be on the show yet (...

Re: Friday, October 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Shouldn't a contestant be shocked that they didn't win? You've had a large number of terrible takes here on JBoard, Golf, and this is by far the worst one, and frankly the most arrogant, that I have seen out of you. Literally 75% of contestants who go on the program do not win a game . That is lite...

Re: Thursday, October 12, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

No, no you are not. Just because you have answered a very small number of selected clue correctly does not mean you sacrifice winning chances in a game of Jeopardy. You've been duped by an insignificant sample size and ignored basic strategy. For someone who alleges to be so versed in mathematics, ...

Re: Friday, October 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It's hard to have your head in the second game period, IMO--I was noticeably flakier myself, and I didn't have the utter shock of beating someone who'd won 12 times! It does your head in. First you're shocked you won Am curious, why would a contestant be shocked they won? Isn't that the goal, isn't...

Re: Thursday, October 12, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

In addition to the stellar performance by Scarlett, can I just say that that was the most exciting, competitive slugfest of a Jeopardy! match I’ve ever watched? Two great players with broad knowledge bases, slugging it out on the buzzer, seesawing the lead. A Jeopardy! classic. I’m surprised, thoug...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Anybody who thinks Austin was rude or unsportsmanlike to his opponents needs to watch him give an enthusiastic high five to the victor in his final game. It is amazing how anybody who is different invokes such strong and at times ignorant opinions. Says the person openly disdainful of anyone who th...

Re: Friday, October 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm guessing Manny thought Michelle would bet zero? This season seems to be dominated by Austin - and leading players offering up the win in FJ. No, he wasn't letting Scarlett back in the game on a double-up. While I don't necessarily begrudge a small wager from the lead, this one was terrible as i...

I had "dab" instead of "dap". I know its also a trending dance move, but I think "dab" works too, judges?

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The record speed of a golf ball is no longer 217mph. While it was obvious the answer could not have been any of the other three, had the contestant missed it he could have good reason for protest. As it played out, he had to use the 50/50 which certainly could have changed how the final question pla...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Austin's pretty much a broad base of knowledge, like Ken Jennings, David Madden, Seth Wilson, Brad Rutter, Julia Collins, Matt Jackson and Arthur Chu. Basically, we have the Mount Rushmore of spectacular champs...but doubled with the faces on there. With much of a broader base of knowledge, he does...

Another solid win. Of course when one player didn't perform very well and the other played for second place it makes it easier. :shock: :lol:

Would make for a fun poll question, who thought Rain would correctly wager everything on the final DD? Perhaps the first 0% in history?

That golf clue was a total piece of crap. The derivation is accurate, but the clue was written in such a way that unless you tumble to the answer, you're not going to get it on pure knowledge alone. Seems as though the writers have major clunkers like these much more often in sports and science cate...

Re: Thursday, September 28 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Austin has been a really good player so far, but I see two weaknesses, one of which may jump up to bite him eventually. 1, he plays from the top of the category down. 2, he likes to show off, such as William Tecumseh Sherman. Congrats on knowing his full name when simply saying Sherman will suffice ...
