Re: Wednesday, May 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Apparently we Need to bring The Final Wager Back. i dont get all the Bad Wagering Lately. Elliott's wager wasn't necessarily bad although it obviously didn't work out. He apparently didn't have confidence in the category and bet to keep Hanna locked out. --Bob A bet of $0 from the lead wouldn’t hav...

I had no idea they were a man and woman who were sexually involved. All I knew they were two people who wrote a book (or something) about sex. Could have been two men or two women for all I knew.

I had heard of the book but I never knew what it is about. But knowing it exists was all it took for the get.

Re: How Did Anderson Cooper Do as Host

I gave him an 8. About on par with Aaron. A little slower than him but seemed more excited to be there.

Just saw today that Aaron Rodgers is threatening to leave the Packers if they don't fire their GM.

I wonder if this'll be a factor in whether he gets the J! gig?
I'm sure this will all get straightened out once the owners get involved
As one of the owners I will let you know.

Re: Monday, May 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I liked Bill but I agree he was a little over enthusiastic in calling on players and crediting them with a correct response. He also didn’t tell Cesar he could bet $2000. But not a bad debut.


Started with Twain but got the right author pretty quickly.

I'm curious Mark. Do you think adding the year 1905 would have helped you at all? 1900 being Oz is one of the big book-year Pavlovs. Tough one and don't know. The names had me thinking Asian though 1905 could have had me get it right with a Barrie detour. 1905 would not have eliminated Kipling for ...

Well, after 2 years, Show #562 is back online. Bigblue, Trevor or Erick Dye-Cain, now is the time to download it and upload it to IA.
Isn’t it already in?

Re: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mel Gibson certainly wasn't a bad guess, but would they really refer to him as a "director?" Or "Hollywood Legend?" For some reason that category name had me thinking of the Golden Age. Not someone still alive and working. Same here. I mentally prepared myself for someone who is dead, which increas...

The use of the Romany slur falls more on the show for not editing it out than him. Not everybody is aware it is a slur, but the producers had no excuse.
Agreed. Just write the question such that "gypsies" wouldn't be an expected response.
Or just not have it at all.

For what it's worth, Snopes says it wasn't a white power gesture. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/jeopardy-hand-gesture/ It seems somewhat short-sighted of them to presume that he didn't plan on using that gesture if he won three games with both an overt meaning signifying "three wins" and a subt...

When I was on the show, Maggie was clear--no hand signals of any sort. No exceptions. That was a hard and fast rule in the briefing room that day. What happened to that rule?
I never heard of that, but plenty of people have waved or given some sort of gesture.
