Re: Tuesday, June 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It must have been his day as Lucas Miner played on the day with a category APPROPRIATE FOR MINERS. Eesha did not do anything crazy with her FJ! wager on the miss as I have seen other leaders mistakenly think they have to cover 2nd place. 19787 has to be enough for a wildcard. Alison looking for a wi...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Is that tape date or airdate? The whole season was taped in the summer. My notes show Peter Morris on 12/7/18 and Peter Osterweil on 12/10/18. Peter Morris did not use his +1 and left with $5,000. Tomorrow I am adding Peter Morris and his Teen semifinal game so that will be a good time to add to hi...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Muffy’s game show rap sheet has a lot of items and let me know if I missed something. Tough year for wildcards with 8300 not enough and 8850 last in. I for one was very curious as to how Muffy did not make it out of the QF round (I only learned recently she was a former Teen contestant). Thanks for...

Re: Monday, June 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yay, ten days of seeing The Thinker doing the dab. Makes me laugh every time. Well, that did not take long. Clue 1 had Teagan give an unexpected response and get negged for it. Ryan rebounded it and later Alex had to give Teagan a correct response as well. The players raced through the clues and nic...

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

On FB there was a post about a pub trivia night and J! contestant coordinators coming up in Washington, D.C., so Austin's place has company for that format of potentially finding contestants.

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I know these are reruns so this was probably discussed a while back, but on Friday’s episode, did I miss something or did the contestant actually choose to walk away without using all of her lifelines? With it being reruns I am not watching anymore. Which episode did you see? Either player name or ...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

It’s crazy that some kid won more money in the first episode of Card Sharks than anyone in Millionaire’s entire 17th season What was crazier was the second part of the episode and the bonus round. The contestant had $23K and an 8, so he bet $4k on lower. An ace came up so dropped to $19K. With that...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Only 26% knew Oklahoma when given 1889 and “sooner”? Maybe people's radar was off. I was in the group of simpletons who had Wounded Knee. Cavalry to battle was my thinking and 1889 was too late for Little Big Horn. :oops: Yes, the hint was there and yes the year should have helped. There is a reaso...

Does anyone know when "The Call" starts going out when production is in hiatus? Supposedly the new season will begin taping July 26th and the coordinators said a month's notice is given to those being called... Back in the aughts I auditioned in May and got The Call in June just about a month later...

I can't think of why E.J. picked exactly $501 for his wager. His safe martian wager was $1,799. In particular, I can't figure out why his wager ended with -01 instead of with -99.
Any ties to Arkansas, home of the 501 area code?
Maybe E.J. likes darts?

It was funny that Eric Larson's story was about the coincidence of his name connected to travel since J! has an Erik Larsen champ and author Erik Larson has had some bestsellers. Each player was on the board after 3 clues though by the end E.J. had done enough (and Eric not quite enough) to have the...

Refreshing chemistry among the contestants. They were loose and seemed to be having fun. "It's the Mexican name for the Rio Grande." Wait, isn't "Rio Grande" already a Spanish term? Why would they call it something else when it already HAS a Spanish name?! Same here - thought they were trying to be...
