Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

And it seems the player only has 'higher' and 'lower' options. A tie makes it wrong either way. That feels like a rule violation. If you, the player, are given two options, only those options should be possible. It'd be like WWTBAM suddenly giving you four wrong answers and expecting you to pick "E...

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

I wonder if anyone has ever tried to bet more than the maximum allowed bet. I'm sure they'd edit it out, but I wonder if anyone has ever tried, whether accidentally or joking. Alex: "You trail James by a considerable margin." Contestant: "I'll wager $56,000. I'm good for it, I swear." I always said...

Eugene was hard to watch. It does seem unfair to bring back players who previously blew it.
I disagree.
So do I.

why was the pronunciation of dr. dree accepted for dr. dre?
Because it could reasonably be pronounced that way.
but it is not...i have seen other mispronunciations penalized
Phonetic mispronunciations are acceptable. If you pronounce it how it's spelled, you're good.

Re: $75,000 rule

Makes more sense that Frank would just report the $75,000 that he received. That way, Jeopardy gets to say that they made the charitable contribution, and they get the write-off.

Re: Rule Change Effective 4/29/19 - No More FJ! Shout-Outs

I feel like a previous Jeopardy champ mentioned on twitter that shout-outs have been discouraged for quite some time, just never enforced. Can any recent contestants confirm or deny?

Incidentally, James' average is $79,566 if you consider Day 6 (his only sub-$30,000 game) and outlier and don't count it.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Technically, mine is Saturday since it airs at 1:00 AM in the Washington market. Not anymore. It moved to 2pm around January, I believe. What makes you say that? According to their schedule, General Hospital is on then, and WWTBAM is still on at 1:00 and 1:30 AM. The fact that I watch it at 2pm. ;)...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

When you were there did the producer have to appear in this regard? Do you know if any contestant dithered on a question for longer than 3 minutes? The producer did not come out during my game, and I was only in the studio for my game. I did sit in the audience for a taping this season, and no prod...

When James commented that he's running out of dates to wager, Alex quipped that he could use his birthday. That wager would be a cool $72,240.

So, to establish some sort of time limit, approximately how long had this contestant been stalling on the question when the producer said this?
I'll jump in for this one. During the briefing with the show's lawyer, we were told the producer would appear after "about three minutes."

Buzzy made a fun observation on Twitter which I didn't notice until now. This wildcard match was a rematch between Buzzy, Alan, and Austin. Even more interesting, that trio is 0/12 in Final Jeopardy.

What an incredible tournament this has been, start to finish. Yesterday and today, we're seeing something we don't see very often on Jeopardy: gut-wrenching emotion. Between Alan yesterday and Alex today, you can really see just how much the team dynamic makes a difference. I'm sure Team Colby would...

Idaho - not falling for a Diamond Head trap since I was not thinking D was a letter
I was able to rule out D as a letter because of the old joke about going to school in Hawaii. Since they don't have B's, C's, D's or F's, you're guaranteed straight A's.

Not a terribly difficult $100K question. My family tree got a little fuzzy, but it wasn't necessary to know who was Indira's son and who was her grandson. Mahatma is not related to Indira, Rajiv or Rahul (Tom's answer) And even if you know absolutely nothing on the subject, Mahatma is the most inte...

Re: Tuesday, November 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The show hasn't aired here yet, but I'm reading anyway because BuzzerBlog spoiled the result on their Facebook page. If you follow them, I strongly recommend unfollowing.

Congrats to all three players on a sensational tournament all the way through! And congrats to Claire for taking it down.

I worked at Domino's ten years ago, and would have absolutely gone with Super Bowl. There were two days out of the year where everybody was scheduled: Super Bowl Sunday, and Halloween.
