Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I love all the breathless reporting about James bankrupting Jeopardy! I suppose if he keeps going and going they could up the difficulty of the clues to limit his earnings. But legally, I don’t think they can decide to retire him if he really maxes out the bank, can they? Suppose they could just sta...

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

Is jeopardy the only major quiz show even casting right now? It seems that neither WWTBAM nor the Chase are. $100,000 pyramid was casting earlier this year I think The Chase isn’t around anymore Unclear if Millionaire will be renewed for another season, but keep your eyes open There was also a call...

Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Carroll Shelby?? Add another notch in the NHO column. Finally! BALLET! Prima ballerina was a gimme. James realized his error on the Jerome Robbins clue while the challengers stood and stared. Son of Zeus? The badly-trailing challengers should have taken a WAG on Apollo. C'mon! Surprised "games" was ...

Welp, that Art ML Final certainly kicked my patoot. Guess I should feel glad that I got 2/12.
Didn’t make the final, but got just 5 right. Should have had Klint because I just saw her show at the Guggenheim!

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

I'm catching up on episodes from early in the season. Guy found a DD late in the first round, bottom box, category AT LEAST 20 MILLION TWITTER FOLLOWERS. He bet just $2000 and got it right. Rest of the game was close, he went into FJ in 2nd place, the champ missed so he won the game. I get the stra...

These were not great boards for me. The other day I thought, I might have had a chance to beat James. Not today. Never even heard of "Hop on Pop" or the H.E.W cabinet Got "brain trust" after a few seconds and "stand by your man" immediately Got Plutonium! But yeah, not a Greek god. Deleted the episo...

Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Could you talk about your experience with the buzzer? Did you feel you were ringing in too early or too late? Did the contestant coordinators give you any feedback at the break? Did you change your grip at all during the game? Question, and I apologize if this is breaking "Fight Club" rules: I'm in...

Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

Buzzing speed matters. In every game so far, there’s one player who barely buzzes in, and I doubt it’s because they don’t know the answers. Of course buzzing speed matters greatly, but I think James also knows a bit more of the material than the average contestant. This reminds me of triviawayne's ...

As for "feet of clay," I guess it helps to have a good working knowledge of the Bible. This reference comes from (IIRC) a dream interpreted by Daniel in the book of Daniel. Sneaking a Bible question into a Daily Double in a PIG LATIN category is just brutal - and exactly why I could never pull off ...

But the good news is that I am now in 2nd in my group and am first in TCA. It feels really good to be doing well in a subject that I like. But I am only in 2nd place by 2 points, and my "non-quiz bowly" art knowledge is extremely lacking, so I am still biting my nails. Good luck. I’m in third on MD...

Interesting to me that you say you're "not enjoying the bloodbath." I have been as much in awe of Jason 's run as anyone, but I share the feeling. After a while "dominance" is too mild a word. He starts to look like the New England Patriots playing against (pick you local high school football team)...

Last spring I missed an audition in Boston due to a canceled flight out of Newfoundland. Two weeks ago I emailed the contestant coordinator to subtly remind him that I had been invited last year, hoping he would maybe consider sticking me back on the audition list again. He replied that reschedulin...

16,000 for James at the first break. Not too shabby. Katie was not heard from until Alex talked to her. Adam and James were not about to take a nap with the remaining $400 clues to give Katie a chance to play the FJ! round. No mercy. I thought the same thing. Let her back in the game!! When Alex an...
