Re: Last Week's contestant run: Conspiracy or Mystery?

(Are winners more likely to be male or female? I don't know, don't have the stats, and don't care enough to try to find them. I mean, it's not likely that the winning percentage is exactly 50%, but I don't know how far off 50% it is.) Between November 24, 2014 (when the tiebreaker rule went into ef...

Re: Last Week's contestant run: Conspiracy or Mystery?

From what we have encountered last week, after David, Sharon and Catherine's episode, the next four days had the men finish in 3rd place while the women had won 2nd place right after that? What do you guys think? I don't think this has ever happened at all in any Jeopardy! season. That happened jus...

cheezguyty: That is 61 clues seen and 3/3 on the FJ! clues for 3 consecutive days. Is the previous occurrence of that distinction recent or further back?

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

While working on a game to input tomorrow (John Hawekotte's next game), John mentioned he was working on a screenplay. Curious about it I put his name into Google and turned this up: http://www.hawekotte.com/our-team The line that caught my eye? An avid reader and learner, John is a five-time Jeopa...

Sad news about Kate Spade, a surprising get for me last night. :( https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/05/fashion/kate-spade-dead.html I just noticed that this morning. I figure this must be some sort of record for someone passing away shortly after being mentioned in a Jeopardy question. Does anyone el...

Re: Friday, May 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had months to ruminate over this, so I’ve looked. I’m not certain enough to say it’s never happened, but it’s at least exceedingly rare for a challenger with the leading Coryat score greater than $17,000 to lose without missing Final Jeopardy or some other miscue (e.g. a Daily Double miss, or a b...

This car is parked around the corner from me and I'm curious what I'm seeing?  Since I'm publicly displaying someone's vehicle and license plate I figure it's better to do it here with limited viewers instead of on Facebook when more would see it. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/980/41275954335_6877...

In the Cheezguyty area: Where does this game rank for highest losing score in a tournament? Last time (if ever) all three final scores began with a 43-? Rebecca's $43,600 does set a new record for highest non-winning score in a tournament game (the previous marks were $39,600 in the 2012 Teen Tourn...

I wonder if anyone has ever before won two games with such a disparity between the totals as Kristin in her two wins: almost $30K difference between #1 and #2. The $27,804 difference between Kristin's first two wins is the sixth largest since the doubling of the clue values: Contestant 1st Win 2nd ...

Re: Thursday, April 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ get rate might be higher for us on this board, but for contestants, 50/50 sounds about right. I wonder if a mod could pull the data from the weekly polls to see what the board averages. I looked over my own results for the first 13 weeks of this year and had 48 correct out of 65 clues (I exclude...

When was the last game to have all three final wagers less than $1000? Is there a way to determine if the total amount wagered ($1,072) is lower than any previous lowest amount? This past March 2 , the largest FJ wager was $850. Among Archived games, the lowest total amount wagered in a three-perso...

Instaget FJ. I wonder what the highest contestant get rate is for a week. Have they ever gone 15/15 (excluding kids/tournaments/celebs)? The contestants were 14/15 for the week of March 23, 1998 and 13/13 for the week of April 3, 2000. (ETA: There's only one 15/15 week in the entire Archive -- the ...

I’m curious what the success rate/fate is of everyone who has been brought back due to faulty clues? More have lost than have won.

It's certainly not common, but this isn't the first time I've seen second place bet such that tying with a "covering by $1 and getting FJ wrong" leader was possible.
