Re: Monday, June 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At the end of DJ, Emily was locked out and yet she didn’t hazard a guess on the Leyte clue. That $2000 would have broken the lock, even if the odds of guessing the right country were long

Can I make a poll request? One question: Can you differentiate between reality and fantasy? Yes or no?

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

If you work in the news business, I imagine being the host of the Today Show is a dream job that you don't give up. I guess you’re right. I might question my life choices if I had to hawk Prime Day specials like a QVC hostess, but I guess that’s only part of the gig. And hosting Jeopardy! might get...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Savannah says she has a day job so she’s not in the running for the hosting gig. Just saw her on Today (via Twitter) pushing products for Amazon Prime Day. Kind of blows the mind.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Is it safe to assume that the show won’t announce the new host until after the end of the season? I feel like an earlier announcement would kill any enthusiasm for the remaining lineup of guest hosts. Let's put the start of S38 taping as July 20th. Even if it's July 27 that still ahead of the seaso...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Did we get two questions on Marco Polo this season? And two on Fleetwood Mac / Stevie Nicks? Not repeats per se, but in both cases, I had to stop and wonder if I was on the right track Marco Polo showed up previously on MD10 Q3 I am all for anything that subverts such (IMO) silly 'rules' as 'no ans...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

The tone and spirit are not at all close to The Weakest Link. For one thing the contestants have ample opportunity to fight back. So it's okay to call someone a [bleep] if you can call them a [bleep] right back? Have they bleeped words on the show? I doubt it. I detect a sense of humor in most of t...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I’m not big on stats, but I’ve been playing since LL72 and I’ve never broken 100 TCA. Currently sitting at 98 TCA with one match day to go. I’ve already beaten my previous record of 96 TCA from (checks notes) LL 86, 87 and 88! Yeah, one of these seasons I will. My record is 97. I have 89 this seaso...

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

I managed a win yesterday, but damn René Lacoste and his "alligator shirts" which are actually (apparently) "crocodile shirts."
I got crocodile but asked 5 random friends what animal is on the Lacoste shirts and they all said alligator

Emily's total could have been $10K higher if Sarah bet the max on DD3.
When someone’s trailing that badly and lands on the DD- what do they say? “Oh Lord!” ?! TDD- no hesitation.

Trash, trash everywhere !

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I got as far as Guns and Roses, but went with Rose. Opponent gave me 0, despite my poor pop music score

I went with Rhine without much thought. That’s a weak area for me

Bad defense all around, but I won 8(4)-5(3). Relegation is still possible but unlikely

I made the Very Best Wrong Answer poll! 38.

it boggles my mind why somebody would buzz in on a question just to say 'pass'.
A guess is always better than a pass, but sometimes they want to jump to the next question instead of wasting any more time.
