I doubt I could ever be on this show. I know that I'd be yelling, "STOP BANKING AFTER EVERY SINGLE QUESTION!" several times each round.
At least in the first round you are pretty clearly wrong. Other rounds Im not entirely sure of the optimal strategy.

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

ABC has their traditional college football doubleheader on Friday, although these are hardly traditional matchups, Iowa State-Texas at Noon Eastern and Notre Dame-North Carolina at 3:30. While it may not preempt many J! airings on the schedule, the chances of the game running long could wreak havoc ...

Re: Reretaken Down

I'll check out the second week of the Feb. teen tourney at some point. Perhaps after 50 more repetitious posts about the same bloody thing. Less than 12 hours later..... Check the second week of the February 2007 Teen Tournament for any more full credit rolls from that tournament, with no local pro...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

11% on Newlywed Game? Probably the most surprised I've been in 14 seasons about a low get-rate. I suppose probably a lot of people snap answered TPIR and didn't go any further but Newlywed was the first thing I thought of, other than the dating game and those prizes felt not appropriate for that.

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Curious wager by the champ, he presumably picked his number to guarantee staying above 3rd place's current score on a miss, but he left himself just short of passing the leader's current score on a get. Not that it was likely Deanna was going to bet $0 but he has little to lose in adding another $60...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

a spare is 10 plus the number of pins on the next roll. You get nothing for converting the spare in the 10th frame. But you do get a third ball in the tenth frame for converting the spare, right? Check out the scenario shown in this example. The bowler gets a third ball in the tenth frame due to co...

The FJ! round was a classic 50/50/90 for me as my Dawson Crossin' went for TWA when I should have gone for the correct and first thing I wrote instead. I had nothing to go on to tip the scales either way. For a sports connection remember the Greatest Show on Turf Rams playing in the TransWorld Dome...

I’ve been saying all season if a good trivia player got on here they would look head and shoulders above the rest and that is indeed what happened. Hats off to Kaya as that was a beatdown of truly epic proportions! Amazed that she made it through 5 votes with no one attempting to target her and then...

Initially I was under the impression that if nobody makes it to FJ, that time would be filled by Scott Bakula playing the piano. :shock:

She should have been negged on that, and that had a huge effect on the rest of the game. The very next question she chose after she should have been ruled incorrect was the DD where she won $5000. If she wasn’t wrongly given credit, she likely doesn’t get the DD and the rest of game could play out ...

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The standings are determined only when the race is over. A sprint might put you into the leader position *during the race, but then you would likely bonk and fade away. So you've never heard of someone referring to "the current standings"? I don't think standings are reserved for the final outcome....

Speaking of that lead, I found it interesting that Scott came up just $200 short of a crush. Brian's previous wagers 36 years of 2nd place wagers suggested that he wouldn't be savvy enough to maximize his chances of winning, though.
