Yes, thank you. I plan to put them in when they are "crowned." I appreciate it!

Re: Fun with avatars

The only thing I wanted to say is that while you and Vanya would be very recognizable with a cycle avatar since he has had many different women pictures and you have had many different geographic locations, others may be harder to recognize right away through a changing avatar. I have come to automa...

Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think an article I read recently that another boardie mentioned was an interview with (I'm pretty sure it was) Leonard saying that when he was talking to his fellow contestants, he mentioned the Archive and how he used it to study and learn wagering, and the others were like "The Arch-what?" And ...

Re: 2013 TOC Wild Card standings (Game 5 Results Included)

I was interested in the limitations concerning the semifinal match-ups, so I typed a list of what the powers that be may have taken into account. Assuming that they wanted to avoid repeat match-ups from the quarterfinals and the regular season... Colby can play anyone. Dan CANNOT play Dave, Keith or...

This was the first time I can remember going over .500 on Final Jeopardy during a regular game-play week. I was very pleased with the set of clues.

Re: audition advice

Look well-kept, but if your beard is the difference maker, there is a problem. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and care about your audition, and I hope that it's rewarded with the call (and a win, for that matter). Though all of us can give our opinions on beards, only those who have actually seen ...

I believe each clue either contained or had a response that involved "thirty" (something).

Re: 2011-13 Tournament of Champions Standings (enter at your own risk)

Honestly, I think the producers will extend the eligibility period as long as necessary in order to prevent three-timers from getting in. Why do you feel that way? :?: I'd bet on Morrison as a dark horse. I've been "riding" him as my favorite, too. I like his and Francis's chances to do well if the...

Re: I'm a teen signed up for the online test, but I have one thing holding me ba

As a fellow teen and test taker next week, I would advise you to go ahead with the test. It gives you experience as already noted, and if you were to win the tournament and earn $75,000, that would be fantastic. At that point, I don't think you would regret your decision! Also, to earn more in the C...

It was great to see you win, Hannah. Our family was rooting for you! I hope to see you win all the more next week. It's interesting that before the reversal, John had nothing to lose on guessing on the last $2,000 clue, but after the reversal, a clam on the last clue would have given him a $600 lead...

Re: FJs for the 3/5/12 week

MarkBarrett, I hate to sound picky, but the response for those viewing the Thursday Final Jeopardy is both Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera.

As for me, I didn't get any Final Jeopardy clues correct (what a shocker). I only had a guess of accordion for Friday. Whoops!

Well, Dave, many thanks and congratulations for a great week. I really hope that they pit you and Jason against each other again in the ToC. That would be a great rematch. You were a breath of fresh air. My mom, in all of her years of watching Jeopardy, has declared you her very favorite contestant....
