Only if you also use the "Paree" pronunciation in the middle of an otherwise-English sentence.
"Zhay", Robair.

Re: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Full disclosure, I'm in the rooting for Amy to lose category, couldn't stand her voice and had pretty much skipped watching her games last couple of weeks. From the NYTimes article: “I’ve got a more feminine voice when I really want to, and I’d sort of been planning on using that voice on TV,” she ...

Re: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Two ways for a contestant to perhaps get this right: 1. You get lucky and your brain automatically hits on a country that ends in H; 2. In your prep, you memorized the 10 most populous countries in the world. There is almost zero chance you are going to be able to go through all the countries fast ...

Re: Wednesday, January 26, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had Y.A. Tittle for Unitas. Manning should definitely have been BMSed. Whatever was going on with Amy, the buzzer statistics were very different than previous shows. Personally, I don't like any comments from the host that divulges anything about the situation the contestant is in -- "You can...

Does that make the other half of fun the watching?
Actually seeing some competition on the show.

Meatloaf- 74 Two words. Always two words. So his real name was Marvin Lee Aday (although he later changed his first name to Michael), so his nickname started out as M.L. but apparently his high school football coach expanded it to "Meat Loaf" presumably due to Mr. Aday's girth. Yeah there...

Re: Monday, January 24, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At least Erin came out like she was trying to win. DD hunting and going true DD. Too bad it didn't work out for her. Erin and Joanne almost managed to stay with Amy on the buzzer in SJ, but once DJ hit, Amy was off to the races again.

Category 13 wrote: Sat Jan 22, 2022 3:42 am Unlike Matt and James, she continues to be gun shy on early DDs. 4400 plus 2000 for her is just as pathetic as her challengers' frequent hapless wagers.
Pathetic? ::Rolls eyes:: Yeah, she's been very unsuccessful with her strategy.

Re: Thursday, January 20, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There was a marked drop in buzzer attempts in Double Jeopardy for Patrick and Brittany - I find it hard to believe that this was all a knowledge deficit. Were they not able to even attempt to buzz in? I think there's a disheartened factor. They get to a point of why bother trying. The times they tr...

How are you able to tell whether a contestant had attempted to buzz-in? How is Jeopardy! able to tell? Their lockout system receives the signal when the contestant presses the signaling device button, even if it does not result in a successful buzz? this is available to the public as a stat? I was ...

Re: Tuesday, January 18, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Amy - 48 buzzer attempts, $35,400 going into FJ Taryn - 42 buzzer attempts, $400 going into FJ These buzzing stats are insane. It's not the money; it's that she's getting in 81% of the time vs. 24% and 26%. It's like playing a baseball game where the other team starts with a runner on 3rd base ever...
