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

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

Re: Monday, September 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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.

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I get the short DD3 wager - it was enough to make Lori have to attempt both bottom row clues sight unseen and if he'd missed, he would only need one of them. The long odds went against him. If he misses, she only needs to answer one clue correct to have the lead. He can answer one and still be behi...

I could see someone getting stuck on FJ because Brazil lies on the equator although the majority lies south.

Re: Jeopardy! All Stars First Pick Poll

Is there any reason not to take Roger? I consider him a better player than four of the captains and he's proven he knows how to prepare.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have officially converted my longtime girlfriend to properly assessing game show strategy. When he used ATA on the Time Person of the Year question she immediately exclaimed, "YOU DON'T USE THE AUDIENCE ON A QUESTION LIKE THAT!?!?!?". I was so proud. Was a neat scene when his Dad recited the alpha...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

It seems to me that having the weakest player on a team play the J! round would be the best strategy, but I am not so sure about the other 2 players. The strategizing will at least be interesting. At first glance, I'd think the weakest player would play FJ. It's only one question and therefore subj...

I'll watch, but I think TPTB are trying way to hard with this. And in the end, it just means that there are now 20 less spots for contestants up for grabs this year.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

not only this, but they are asking close to 400 people to travel on the schedule of the show each year. If they were so accommodating to one, they would have to be to everyone, and then scheduling would just be impossible as not everyone can just take time off work whenever, or other stuff they wan...

They are taping a 2nd chance week on 8/21...but didn't ask me :( That's definitely a sore spot for me. After the first season of prime time shows they held a ToC, immediately after my second season appearance was told by the producer I would be called for the 2nd season ToC. To my knowledge they ne...

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have no problem with Wes's wager. He can't win if second place makes what we would generally consider to be the optimal wager. So he can either hope second bets all/most of their money and bet less than $4800 to stay ahead of first on a miss, or he can bet it all and hope 2nd bets at least $1600....

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Those wagers...woof. Not sure why I bothered calculating their optimal wagers, when I was pretty sure they'd just bet it all or close to it. Didn't see Michelle's wager coming though. If she hated the category, why bet anything, let alone enough to fall behind a double up by Wes (who shouldn't have...

Re: Monday, July 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A 599 wager from Lauren would have made Wes' wager not so savvy, eh? Wes couldn't have it both ways, so he should have bet 7599 if he felt confident with the category. With U.S. Presidents, I'm takin' that gamble every time. Jeopardy contestants are not savvy poker players, there is almost never fi...

Quick solve on the final. Going through the different VPs who took over took me quickly to Truman who took over super early in FDR's fourth term. 1/1 (Teddy's time in office was only 3 months shy of Truman's!) 8-) Always nice to see a savvy wager win a game for a player where most in that position ...

Re: How does one study for Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Dumb question, but hypothetically speaking, what is a current year entertainment almanac? I was at the library for hypothetical reasons and hypothetically couldn't find anything that wasn't a really boring list. This is what I inhaled before appearing on WWTBAM. https://www.amazon.com/PEOPLE-Entert...

So... hypothetically speaking. If you have roughly a week and a half before a hypothetical taping of this game show, what would you concentrate your studies on? I'm going over lists of Presidents, lists of states and their capitals, working through countries and their capitals, and the periodic tab...

Re: Wednesday, July 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was very happy to see Liz's wager after the silly $50 hold back. But it didn't matter.

But most here knew both weren't going to wager everything or nothing. Or even $1401.
