Erin Zweiner in Time magazine

A three-day Jeopardy! champion from 2012, Erin is now featured in the January 29, 2018 edition of Time magazine. I enjoyed reading what she's been up to since I met her while waiting for her to lose (they wouldn't let us play against each other since we were both members of this discussion board), a...

Re: One year later

As we were getting ready to walk out on stage for an episode, the other contestants and I all figured out that we had been the first name called at our respective auditions. I asked Robert, "Is that a thing? Or you probably can't tell us." He just smiled. So, who knows. Good point. For my third (an...

Re: One year later

I still feel woozy when I hear the intro music Me too, me too! My second favorite comment (the most common) "Is that YOU?" wow, they made you look so good.." . I usually play up the whole make-up artist thing, but still, I don't think people need to be quite so shocked at how talented Sandy was. :r...

Re: One year later

The point is that the experience can also try the patience of even the most devoted significant other. They go through a lot as well and don't get to experience all the fun. For example, while contestants get treated to a nice lunch, guests are left to fend for themselves with a 20 minute window in...

That thought has crossed my mind, too. Just to go somewhere to do answers and questions, or questions and answers.

Re: One year later

I agree with everything you said, Peter! Well, except for how long I've wanted to be a contestant. I just don't watch the show anymore, either; I'm not that interested. It really was my Mt. Everest, too. And so many of us were brilliant players, but the timing wasn't there, or the questions weren't ...

I especially enjoyed that question about Curie with the response of Warsaw. That's the kind of J clue I love: two steps from the correct response. I wish more of the clues were like this.

Re: Thursday, May 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This was a brilliant game. So many great players end up in second and third; I forget that, sometimes. A game like this one makes me realize I'm in damned good company (and no, I don't count myself as a great player ;) ). Shocked that Goddard was an instaget for me. Maybe I picked up the info from j...

I bought your book and wasn't able to resist reading the part about me immediately! Oh, so very egotistical, aren't I? Still, I loved seeing the experience through your eyes, and I thank you for your discretion. Ahem. ;)

Re: Tax Information

In the envelope they sent with my check, I got a bunch of forms. The green page says "DO NOT LOSE THE ENCLOSED 529-B FORM" and then at the bottom "CA nonresident tax will NOT appear on the federal form 1099 you will receive next year." So, looks like we get 1099s from the show. That being said, I ha...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 9, 2013

First reaction: that wasn't too hard. What was the S. Carolina tree, a palmetto? Looking forward to the transcript, since the questions all run together immediately. I have to say taking this just for fun is way more relaxing than all the other times I've taken it. Imagine that!! :)

Enjoying Jason's run. Always love seeing an Aggie do well on the show, but Jason is just giving his opponents very little opportunity. I felt especially bad for that guy yesterday, who looked like he couldn't believe his awful luck to be up against a buzzsaw like Jason. Today's ladies looked a bit ...

And wasn't it the thrill of a lifetime just to be on the stage, hear the music and then JG saying YOUR name? I thought I was going to collapse right then and there! Gee, I never thought that Micheal meant that much to you. :mrgreen: Brian I'm nothing if not supportive! Ask Erin (TreeHugginCowgirl)....

After thinking about it, I agree they couldn't take it like that. A tough break and she's probably on the fence at best for a wild card spot.
No, she clearly said, "Oh, I forgot the g" after Alex ruled against her.

Hello everyone. Here are a few random thoughts. I was glad that I could fill the time in my Alex interview segment with my song. No worries about stumbling over my answer or being put on the spot by Mr. Trebek. I was delighted with your song! So very true for me, but I could still laugh. Glad it wa...

Hey everyone, "loopy" loser Colin from last night here! Finally got to see my show thanks to the good man in Canada here who uploads the episodes. Great to read the feedback. No excuses but not growing up in the US (hence the Tainted Love ring in) didn't help with that music category. But lack of k...
