Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was sitting with Wilbur's entourage in the studio audience during this game. The episode hasn't aired here yet, but if anyone noticed a tire-screechy gasp of horror when they ruled against Wilbur's FJ, that was me. With single-letter FJ's still in recent memory ("Q" and "K"), this ruling is a hea...

Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Eric went for a wave and a fist banging in his hand for the opening. His story was about preparing for the zombie apocalypse. The 20/20 category was played last in the J! round, so in wanting that to be shown in its entirety even with time running over that ate up time for the DJ! round causing 5 cl...

Re: Monday, November 20, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Eric’s introduction included a wave and a wink. His victory celebration included multiple fist pumps and a clap. The players got me as I wrote my FJ! response without the H. When I saw that all three of them had an H in there I thought I my 6-letter response must have been a letter shy. Kara began t...

I'm sure I have 4/5 songs and fairly sure I don't have the Willie & Julio song.
There is no doubt I have heard all of the songs. Let's just say more than once.

That was brilliant on my part to have Gabrielle Reese instead of Gabrielle Union. Not only did I mess up the spelling of Reece, but she's the white Gabrielle.

Surprised Austin bet anything on FJ as Buzzy had a lock game and Austin cost himself $50,000 for no reason. Buzzy Cohen: 25600-1301=24299 + 0 = 24299 = $100,000 Alan Lin: 1600-1200=400 + 8800 = 9200 = $50,000 Austin Rogers: 10200+10000=20200 + 6500 = 26700 = $250,000 Let's give Austin a correct res...

Wow. Is this the first TOC where no one got fjs in two games? How about the eventual champ starting at 0 on game 2? Whoa, I mis-read the results and thought Alan won it.
