Hump day ... the squirrels ... the caveman in the airport ... the opossum ... some of them are really clever.
I *&^%ing hate that camel...he's so annoying. Almost as annoying as the hipsters on the little stage discussion how surprising it is afterwards.

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I suck at this, but what the hell. What do I have to lose. about 15 minutes You're saving him money on car insurance? Could switching to GEICO save you 15 percent or more on your car insurance? Are GEICO commercials about as funny as shoving a knitting needle directly into your eyeball? I think the...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I can only hope I do as well as I've done the past few years, but also get through the random selection afterward for the auditions. My luck, however, is abysmal. I'm curious to compare. Between 2009 and 2017, inclusive, I passed a J! online contestant quiz seven times without getting an invitation...

If I can actually get an in-person audition this time around, I very well may be able to walk/run to my audition.
In which city? I took Metro from my house to the audition at a hotel in Washington DC last March and had a few block walk.

Don't feel like uploading a photo. I'll pass.

Just upload a photo of a gecko or something silly and if you pass the test and are invited, explain to them that you didn't want to give them a real photo unless they were going to actually call you for an in-person test.

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I do far better than the average Jeopardy! viewer when playing along at home...but I'm terrible at the clues than involve unscrambling words!

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

OK, I guess I won't take the Online Test, then. But they have already finished taping shows that will air in this season, no? I assumed if I hadn't gotten called by now, then I was going to based on my in-person interview. In hindsight, I wished I had been more energetic in my audition. I met Maggie...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

The online test is for anyone/anywhere, right? The cities make an impact if one were to qualify? That's how I understood it but would love to know the full process. Thanks all! Yes, anyone can take the test. However I believe you must register and choose an audition city; if you are fortunate enoug...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

In the Jeopardy web page under FAQs it says you cannot (may not) take the Online test if you have had an in-person audition in the last 18 mos. I went to one in Washington DC on 3/26/2018, so that would disqualify me? How ridiculous! I did well in the audition but never was called to be on Jeopardy!...

Re: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just saw that Rachel went on Twitter and wrote "It was ail!" I listened to it on the Jeopardy Fan website about 20 or 30 times and it is definitely ambiguous. OK, I take her at her word...I don't think she was lying about what she intended to say. BUT I maintain Alex should have asked her to repea...

Re: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got "The Handmaid's Tale" but I began writing with only about 5 seconds left in the music, not enough time to write it all down! I would have been ruled incorrect because the pen would have turned off before I completed it. If I had written "What is" while I was stumped I probably could have compl...

Re: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am a few weeks behind in watching Jeopardy! episodes stored on my DVR. Rachel DEFINITELY said "ill," and even if she said "ail" (which she didn't), Alex should have asked her to repeat her response to make sure of what she said. Alex did not do his job. I do NOT consider Rachel the rightful winner...

Hey twelvefootboy! At the risk of appearing excessively interested....I'm pretty sure Claire is half-Asian. It never occurred to me throughout the tournament until after the last game, when I saw her dad come up onstage, then I said to myself, oh, now that I think about it, she does kind of look lik...

This will probably never be read because the Teen Tournament ended about a week ago and I watched it on DVR just now...but I was rooting for Claire all the way!!! I think she is fabulous!!! I thought her conservative wagering in the Day 1 Final Jeopardy! and in the Daily Doubles might come back to h...

Re: Monday, November 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As another poster has said - I have doubts that this is anything but a natural voice. The pitch is just fine, even some males have helium voices. Remember that Olympic gymnast a few years ago (citation needed, sorry) with the Minnie Mouse voice? Tara Lipinski? Sometimes a cartoon voice clears up al...

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

Reese’s story was about being a bourbon enthusiast including having tried Pappy Van Winkle’s while none of the players got the French royal house clue. If Christine sang any more of her SHOWS BOATS $1000 response that probably would have cost the show money and she might have had to redo her respon...

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

Probably nobody will respond to this comment because I'm now a couple of weeks behind in watching Jeopardy! episodes due to having spent some time traveling; I just now watched the 9/17/2018 episode on the dailymotion website. Am I the only person who responded, "Who is George Marshall?" to the clue...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Random question: does Alex have detailed instructions for what possible responses are/are not correct, or should elicit a "be more specific," or does he just use his discretion? And is it the judges who decide if the player's pronunciation of the response is good enough to be correct, or does Alex d...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There was this one time years ago when a clue was about a leader in the Indian Independence movement. The player said "who is Nehru?" and Alex said "be more specific." He couldn't come up with "Who is Jawaharlal Nehru" so he was called incorrect. I was like, "Are you kidding me?????" He got Nehru, j...
