I don't know what other guesses are even plausible for Final. Maybe if somebody had a major brain fart and tried Born on the Fourth of July?
I had no clue, although it clearly had something to do with the Civil War. I went with "The Blue and the Grey". That was a movie, right?

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Kate seemed really subdued by the end of the game, even when she rang in with correct answers. I think that's what made me notice her body language during the final credits. In fact, BOTH challengers were standing with folded arms.
Note to self: If you get the chance, don't do that.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Don't expect two tests. We were told this was something they "rarely" did. I found the 2nd test tp be a little more difficult, but not tremendously so.

Re: TD 420 - Free your mind (Q3 Revealed)

I did not cotton on to the fact that you didn't need the adjective. I thought you were requiring something like "an <adjective>> joker" and I had no clue. So I sheeped, and paid a stiff price for it. Such are the vagaries of TD.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

30 was reported in a Boston session That 30 was a guess on my part. I didn't actually count. I think there was a no-show, and we ended up with a final group of only 2. (They pulled a random person up to repeat the buzzing in portion of the mock game.) interesting they pulled a 3rd person for that a...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

If you've been to an audition so far, let us know how many people were in your session and if you can estimate the male:female ratio, post up. Also, I know there's been radio silence from Jeopardy regarding upcoming auditions, but with the schedule we know so far, I would expect more cities to star...

Dressing for the microphone

Here's a question for people (particularly women) who have appeared on the show: Do the sound techs prefer that you wear something with a waistband so that they have somewhere to clip a battery pack? Or are battery packs a thing of the past?

Wait and see. I can only imagine they don’t want to make any promises to anyone, but I’m sure they keep track of some people in exceptional scenarios. You did the right thing by emailing. Now you have to respect the “don’t call us, we’ll call you” rule. Good luck and do report back. I’m in a simila...

Taking the test from the video, I squeaked out a 36. ( I had a bad case of the stupids.) I'm glad I took the test fro real on Wednesday.

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

A word of advice to those taking the test tonight. When it starts, click in the answer box to position your cursor before you type your first answer. (I lost a couple of seconds because I didn't.) After that, you shouldn't need to -- just type and your answer should show up in the box.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

I took it successfully, but it felt bad. I thought it was harder than last night (which I "took" via sherder's recording.) Last night I got 38. Tonight? We'll see. Update: I actually did better! 42 or 43, depending on if they accept "Pacific" instead of "Pacific Avenue." Plus, I made quite a few spe...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (West Palm Beach), March 27, 2019

39, playing from the video. It would have been 40 except I was too slow on #48. That's about average, maybe a little above for me. But reading the clues took slightly longer than usual -- I've had cataract surgery in one eye, so now I need readers, but my eyes are unbalanced. I'm getting the other e...
