Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

This is the question that ended the 11/14 Whiz Kids episode: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1tiZPrhMpSVv2EWU7xac9QIM802BOlO-e That was great! Here's what I did (with the video paused): Like a lot of people here probably do, I know the first line from "Seasons of Love" is "525,600 minutes," which ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

One thing we haven't thought about: We know TV lies to us all the time, maybe they aren't scoring the tests at all, but they are scoring "us"; they can always score the tests later to look and see if someone figured out how to cheat on the online test. But at that point in the proceedings, they hav...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Anyone else notice that they seemed to group the buzzer round based on test scores from high to low? The question is does it even matter? So hard to read who they liked and who they didn't! It makes sense to call people up in evenly matched groups, but at my audition I was never aware of other peop...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

This whole test scores determine the group seems to make sense as it would explain why they bother to take the time to score the test during the in person audition while everyone is there. Up until now, I really wondered why they would do that since everyone at the in person audition played the mock...

Re: The Buzzer!

I didn't take any bites out of the buzzer, or smash it into my forehead.... damn, I wonder if that could have helped! :lol: Maggie was fine with me using my index finger to click the buzzer and it worked quite well for me, I held my own against my competitors in my mock game today. I wonder if smas...

Re: Denny McLain, the AJ Score, and Predicting the 2017 Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions

I really enjoyed this article. The one thing that I thought was missing that I wasn't sure if it belonged or not was bottom-row clue conversion rate. Since the bottom row has a much lower conversion percentage, the expectation value per known clue is much higher, so I was wondering if any of the pe...

A coworker told me that her husband “brought multiple outfits and needed them.” Noe I’m glad I didn’t repeat that to anyone.
Maybe the producers didn't like the one he intended to wear for his first and only show? I'm guessing this isn't the case though, but could happen.

Re: 2017 ToC Quarter-Final Matches Revealed - Discussion

I think the automatic bids of the tournaments mask some weaknesses the winners have and it will show in the TOC. Jason has very few weaknesses, as his LL profile reflects. His regular season LL stats don't even tell the full story. Check out his one day record, the guy knows virtually everything ab...

Re: 2017 ToC Quarter-Final Matches Revealed - Discussion

The teachers winners get a bad rep, and maybe its deserved. The Powers that be normally ease up on the questions a bit during those tournaments, and it can be hard to get a good feel for how strong those players are. I don't think that the TT champs' general underperforming in the ToC is necessaril...
