Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The J! Fan's stats were credited in this article: https://www.ajc.com/news/local/johns-creek-man-compete-jeopardy-friday/xOlOptJIkezMFTutnqP4iK/ From there I scrolled down and found a tweet that named Alan's high school. From there I could not resist a little more detective work and I found his year...

Alan showed some teeth in his opening smile and it reminded me of Matt Jackson: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1938/45357952652_b9acb61ff7_z.jpg Sometimes I see a reversal coming and other times I have no idea.

Re: Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would a fifth win tomorrow (televised date: Thursday, 18 October 2018) guarantee Alan Dunn a place in a future ToC? Or could he be bumped by someone with more dollar winnings or more games won? Jasper It's generally understood that five games get you in. The only exception I can think of offhand is...

Re: Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Julie earned a healthy laugh form the audience with her groaner to end her chat segment about fireworks. At the end of the J! round there were two things to notice: 3000 across the board for the scores The wiring for Alex’s earpiece was quite visible. Alan was flirting with a runaway yet could not p...

Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was nice to see REALLY BIG SPORTS STARS completed in the first segment with no jumping out of it and all three players scoring at least one in it. Ouch on the match having double 6000 misses on Daily Doubles. Prairie gave it a good run trying to make up for losing the farm in the J! round while...

Re: Monday, October 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After the first three clues each player was on the board and I thought it was going to be another close game like the one on Friday. Nope, Alan was more than ready to defend from the champ’s spot. Sarah had more than one chance to break to lock but between her DD2 wager and the rebound served up on ...

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

Don't care for bow ties and will usually root against the wearer of a bow tie, all else being equal. This is my acknowledged game show prejudice, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why all the parents who dress their kids for game shows (Whiz Kids Week on Millionaire being the main one) thi...

Derped FJ. Translated as "pick a random Dickens novel" for me. Could thieves' gangs be interpreted as mob violence? went with Oliver Twist :( That was my answer with the same logic behind it. Wouldn't have mattered since OT takes place in the 19th C. For works by Dickens I'm only finding two that t...

You are welcome Bud and thanks for sharing some of the names for the other J! players you met. I have updated your J! bio page to reflect your Millionaire appearance. That was nice of the powers to get you on early in the season compared to others that have to wait until May.

Re: Friday, October 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was one of those games when you could flip any one thing and a different person would win. Alan prevailed thanks to 1/1 on Daily Doubles while Ryan could not quite overcome 0/2. Alex finding no Daily Doubles was a clue short of the lead as well. Three contestants in jacket and ties and all scor...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Lord Jim & Conrad has all kinds of variations in the Archive. By now it has enough appearances that first box is fine while a value or two lower is no crime either.
