Re: Monday, December 1, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I too thought it was an unreasonable FJ for them. I think it is a little harsh to say that the clue was "unreasonable." Difficult, maybe. Big bird is still an iconic character and I think all those kids knew who he was. He probably just wasn't the first character to jump into their heads. Perhaps t...

So Cerulean is my new favorite. Anyone else notice he bet $42 for FJ? He either really loves Jackie Robinson or he has read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Maybe I shouldn't jump to conclusions, but I'm guessing it's the latter ;)

Re: Tuesday, November 18, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I knew final Jeopardy right away (I have a degree in French Literature so I would be quite embarrassed if I didn't) but I only knew the title in French. I'm assuming they would've accepted that, right? Obviously I wouldn't have put it down in French to be pretentious, it's just I've only ever had co...

Re: Familiar Face on "The Chase" (Spoilers for The Chase)

So by the way, I filmed an episode of The Chase a couple weeks ago. I have no idea when my episode will air (though it definitely wasn't the one they previewed for next week), but I will keep you all updated. I had a good time and everyone at the audition and in LA was very nice. but the whole proce...

Re: Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Considering that my Constitutional Law professor spent several weeks going over habeas corpus cases, that FJ was an instaget for me. I agree with several comments that Julia's best strategy would've been to rick nothing, but I totally understand the temptation to win it and lock in your place. It mu...

Re: Wardrobe Poll

I thought I was so smart picking my little pink dress, that I would be so original...then I show up and there are 3 other girls in pink. Bleh. Apparently I am not as unique as I think I am. Haha. How can you not spend time thinking about it though? For most of us, this is our first/only time on nati...

Awesome game, bad wagering.

I knew Van Buren from studying for my Jeopardy appearance. Too bad I didn't get to use it for real. Oh, well. Que sera, sera.

Yeah, I definitely will. I'm always looking for a reason to procrastinate when I should be studying for finals. ;)

Re: RIP online Howdies?

I taped my episode in late September and we were still doing the creative howdies. So, don't worry.
