Re: 2019 TOC Updates

So Dave Leffler is out of contention? That sucks. Would he have been in the 2019 ToC had Emma not been invited or was that going to be Ryan regardless?

So I guess Sam is now being moved into the ToC following the one coming up this year?

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Is there a high chance they'd pair James and Emma in the same QF to make sure the rematch does in fact happen? There's no guarantee if they wait for a later round.

Instaget FJ. Kind of surprised myself there, but I know the story of how that country came to be.

Re: Quick Rules Q

I don't know for sure, but I was under the impression that if there's a tie for third going into DJ!, it's the champion that selects first if they are a part of it. Otherwise I would guess it's whoever's behind the second podium.

Re: Season 36 Changes & Predictions

Chris Harrison will be the new host. He will ask "Is that your final answer?" every time a contestant responds to a clue, which will waste valuable seconds and clear an average of just 50% of each round's board from now on.

Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If Emma wins 5, will that knock Eric Backes down to 15th on the leaderboard? He'd be the last 4-time champ left then. Which means any other 5-time champs after Emma will start knocking off other 5-time champs from the leaderboard. I'd hate to think that nowadays, 5-time champs wouldn't be eligible ...

Shouldn't this thread be considered a spoiler since the mentioned game happened not long ago?

I assume that MB is going to poll for how many got spoiled on this game, if not then consider this a request.
I'm down for that. I'd be in the "Yes" box for that one. But disappointing to see it come true either way.

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sad to see James go. :(

But, since Emma beat him, she might as well break that "giant killers" curse and go on a good run herself. Let's go for at least five.

I think I remember a Dino Alexander appearing on last year's (or the one before's) list. Same guy that was on J! earlier this season?

It's interesting that Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter never seem to take part in this. I wonder why?

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Don't know if it's been known before, but KJL Rich Carroll was on a Weakest Link episode (primetime version) that I watched online yesterday (don't know if I should post the link in public or not). He came in 4th.

Re: J! and other notable contestants on The Chase (possible J! spoilers)

Victoria Groce got a shoutout from The Governess on an episode I recently watched -- The fact that Governess is currently 3rd best female quizzer in the world came up, and she mentioned the two ahead of her by name.

Also, bump for more potential IDs.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know what instrument the concertmaster plays? Could be anything. Odd when $400 is my only miss in a music category. This is a joke, right? You're complaining that you don't know stuff that the rest of us seem to get, then you're asking why should you know stuff? It's nothing new...

Re: Andy's Millionaire Experience

Congrats on your success. I'm not watching the show much, but it seems like even reaching the $100K mark doesn't seem to happen often as much as it used to. So that alone is something to congratulate. As for your $100K question, I can't say at all that I'd have gotten it right, but seeing the answer...
