Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

See you in Cleveland! Got an invite for June 28. Just got my invitation for Cleveland, also June 28!!! My last audition was 2006, the first year of the online quiz era. I've taken every online contestant quiz in the past decade and passed most of them without a nibble. My wife and I are so stoked a...

Trebek on RuPaul’s Drag Race

Did anyone catch Trebek on Drag Race last night (May 3rd)? I haven’t seen it yet but I’m sure it’s hilarious. The same bizarro experience of seeing RuPaul serving clues on Jeopardy!

Oh, man. Name a book. Name ANY BOOK! Got War and Peace * and Age of Innocence , missed Pride and Prejudice - and I haven't read any of 'em I negged with Peru / Bolivia, but had Chile / Argentina first Blanked on greyhound.

Re: Monday, April 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got crazy busy and fell way behind on my Jeopardy! viewing but hearing that RuPaul was serving up clues brought me back! I’m really impressed with Jeopardy! for bringing on RuPaul to do an entire category of films featuring men in drag. The audience obviously loved it because they responded with app...

Re: POLL: A Hypothesis about Auditions

I once knew a guy who was certain Wheel was rigged because the wheel would suddenly slow down. I guess the concept of editing out things never occurred to him. My aunt said the exact same thing to me: "They can stop the wheel wherever they want!" She also told me a woman should never be president, ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Thanks for all the congrats on the Boston Marathon. It was definitely one for the history books! Now I just need to pull together a clown costume for the NYC Marathon on November 4th...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Thanks for the good vibes! Ask me again about it on April 16th! How did it go? Well, I ran a pretty good race- finished in 3:32 - but wow- you really couldn’t have asked for worse conditions. Coldest Boston Marathon in 30 years and the rain never stopped- not once, before, during or after the race....

L’Orangerie as an incorrect response to FJ shows that the kid knows stuff but he should’ve gone with the obvious - and much bigger- choice

Shout out to all Jeopardy! hopefuls auditioning this spring: I’m working on a Medium blog post about the Jeopardy! auditions. If you’re interested in talking about your experience, get in touch by PM. I can meet up with anyone auditioning in NYC or I can send my questions by email. I’d like to get r...

Finished just above the relegation line in A Taiga, but dead last in TCA! This season played harder for me than the last- no beer at all!

i always confuse Trouble! With Sorry. One’s got a dice popper, one’s got cards.
I really don't like these game questions at all!

Embarrassed to say I put 'coconut' as the fruit (is coconut even a fruit?), thinking of 'Kokomo', which was recorded by the Beach Boys :oops:

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

What’s the term for changing an answer you know is right to one you know is wrong? I switched from polyester to rayon, knowing that rayon is made from cellulose, so not truly synthetic, and polyester is everywhere. Luckily I was assigned 0 for that one and escaped with a much needed 8(4)-4(4) win to...

That Rodin sculpture, The Burghers of Calais. Not in a million years Thank you. I had no idea what was going on with that clue.

LT: St. Martin etc., Mauritius, Bartok, and Mediterranean. (Funny how the one guy was spelling that and just seemed to run out of steam. Surprised no one rang in on Mediterranean after Johnny negged. Would have loved to ring in with "That's Pee Wee Herman - P-E-E..." Couldn't pull Mauritius and had...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I was right on the Family Feud question, but I was really unsure - couldn't definitively hear Richard Dawson saying it, plus I kept thinking Fast Money is the name of that crackhead Jim Cramer's stock show on CNBC. Maybe it is? Anyway, I got my 3 points (and gave up 3 points) for the lowest TCA of ...

Re: Monday, March 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Odd game overall, but I did love Tristan's look. I'd guess the shirt is by Paul Smith, but it could be from anywhere Hero to zero: how many players win at least 1 game only to flame out and not to make it to FJ in a later game?? I can think of a few, but not many I've noticed a recent casting trend ...

Re: Monday, March 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I suspect Alex can see what the contestants are writing on their screens during FJ? Can anyone confirm or deny? I don't think he can actually see responses, but I didn't notice whether or not he wears an earpiece. If he has an earpiece, the producers can tell him who's the winner (and coach him to ...
