Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

I would agree. There may in fact be a plausible explanation as to why the bet was made, per the information I was juuuuust given. I would go so far as to say that there is a more likely than not chance that the contestant is innocent of any wrongdoing based on that additional info. I will leave it a...

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

So I will tell you what I heard. From my understanding, someone made a very concerning wager on a daily double at some point in the season. I’m told it was a cryptic reference to a set of numerals that has meaning to white power nationalists. I was also told that this was caught in post production. ...

We need Dr. Michael Bummer on Jeopardy.

I know of that guy.

He got arrested not too long ago for tossing around opiates. He ain't a doctor any more.

Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

For those of you who might know - when does this purported controversial, shocking wager occur? I am curious to see how plausibly it is “fixed.”

Re: Trivia Nationals

Another planned difference is that they wanted to do tiered events. For example, they want to do two divisions for quiz bowl, to make it more enjoyable for some of the less uh aggressive teams.

Trivia Nationals

If you had not heard about this, then I wanted to post this here to let you know about it: http://trivianationals.org It's not TCONA. It's not TCONA's successor. More just a very similar event run by enthusiastic trivia folk, that just so happens to be at the Tropicana in August. It's set up to run ...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The tournament is a Wednesday-through-Tuesday, so it would not surprise me if it was set up in some sort of four-part 3-episode 3-episode 2-episode 2-episode fashion. Or that they will do something like spread two games worth of content over three games, filling the dead time with puff segments and...

Re: TCONA 8

If you are going to ever go, go this year. I sense the event is on shaky financial footing. I should say, its operator has even admitted that the financial situation is bad. There is a nonzero chance it folds before next year, or is sold to a larger corporate entity. In the latter case I suspect it ...

One reason they sell them is that it's their work and it's a lot of hard work to make a question set. Just a thought.

Re: 2017 World Quizzing Championships

How about that Jakob Myers, who got 142 and just graduated high school? I always thought that Steve Perry (IMO the best quizzer this side of the pond) is the best bet to break the stranglehold of the Europeans. But looks like America now has a new star. After last years' event, I was telling Sven t...
