Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Couldn’t you just use two computers or a cell phone?

I think the current test is very gameable and it’s one factor in the drop-off in overall contestant quality.

I wonder what it is about him that rubs people the wrong way?

They’ve had a playful back-and-forth. Keep in mind Jennings KNOWS his fate since he was at the season finale.

Taping for the season is over. Does the fact that we haven’t heard about James losing, like we did for the Zerg-Jennings game, mean that he ran the rest of the season?
Not at all. Did you know about this magnificent run until it was imminent?

There was a path to beating James in this episode, but his opponents were not up to the task.

A book about a guy that kills deer is called The Deerslayer. Go figure.

It's just silly. It's like going to the arcade and seeing that MADMAX has all the top scores of your favorite video game.

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

I guess this counts (maybe) - According to Wikipedia, Brad Rutter filmed a U.S. pilot as a Chaser, but the citation is an archive.org copy of a paywalled article. Fortunately a Twitter search reveals: https://twitter.com/bradrutter/status/202969204457091074 IIRC, Fox filmed two pilots for a U.S. ve...

The amazing thing is how used we are to him winning. We don’t even think about it at this point. That’s remarkable. Such a breathtaking moment.

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A slander (or libel) is a factually false and reputation-damaging statement. The comments I am referring to fit your definition exactly. OK then, I believe you. I won't visit the site in any case, and obviously I am not going to ask you to relay claims you believe to be slanderous, as that would be...

As some of you know, I have to tell terrible news to people all too often thanks to my work. The other day I looked at someone’s fingernails and told them something absolutely awful but unfortunately ultimately proven to be true. If you ever run into me - the stories I could tell. These are such sa...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If the site were going unnoticed, I would agree, but given that contestants are already emailing the site en masse and saying "TAKE THIS DOWN!" or "TELL ME WHO YOU ARE!", you would think there would be a quiet gossip chain among the trivia community, from friends of James to friends-of-friends, to ...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I kinda admire the "I have a profession that involves me giving devastating news to people so game show stuff doesn't matter even though I post regularly on a game show forum" angle. Not as much as the "You're witnessing history, so lie back and think of England" angle, but definitely more than the...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Still, the fact of the matter is: even if there was no website, there are still a number of people who have been disrespected in the past by the current champion, some nearly to the point of being slandered, and their experiences are being ignored and dismissed by a large number of people. And othe...

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Indeed not, but this continues to be curious, particularly in his lack of surprise that someone should create such an involved fan page in his name for unclear reasons (as opposed to, for instance, posting on a site like this), which would be my first concern if I were him. If the champ were a woma...

Yes, there were, which is why past contestants are asking questions, not because "they are haters."

Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If it is determined that Holzhauer did indeed create the site his status for the TOC will come into serious doubt. I think this is very doubtful. James is going to be a popular champ who may be one of the greatest players ever. It's going to take something a whole lot more egregious than that to ke...
