Re: Friday, October 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue was a fail for me all around. Speed reading the clue I started writing "Don Q" before seeing enough to put on the brakes. Slowing down I processed "Syrian" to Arabic and wrote "The Rubiyat" to compound my errors missing on years, century, language, spelling, etc. :oops: Well, I feel a ...

The thing that pisses me off is that TPH has made more money than I in game shows despite this.
Did you see his "Wheel" appearance? If you actually watched him on "Wheel", you'd know this is a terrible take.

Re: Audition rules clarification

Send a note to the contestant coordinator email address. Explain your situation and ask them if you should take the test. That's what I did in 2018 when my 18 months ran out a week or two after the online test was scheduled. They told me to skip the online test. I did. They still did not call me to...

The secondary hint 'St. Jean Baptiste' is a bit more obscure than these normally are. ST. Jean Baptiste (St. John the Baptist) is the patron saint of Quebec, and the feast day (June 25th) is the big celebration day of Quebec each year.
June 24th is the feast day.

Re: Audition rules clarification

I have received conflicting information about audition rules and I thought someone here could guide me. My 18-month clock runs out 3/27/20. The next online test is in January 2020, or so I've been told. Am I eligible to take the test or not? Who told you that? The last online test was in April 2019...

Re: Jeopardy!'s 2018-19 contestants - where are they from?

On my paperwork, they specifically asked for the location where you are NOW, and excluded where you are FROM. I think this is because we filmed little promos called "hometown howdies", but they insisted on using your current location. They run those in the viewing market of your current station, NO...

Re: Harry Friedman stepping down after Season 36

Also, bring back tie games (that is, both contestants come back the next day whenever one occurs) as well. I think this is a good example of addition by subtraction. I get that they don't want leaders to play for a tie, but if both players were tied before FJ and shoot the moon and both get it, bri...

I bet next Monday they're going to rerun the All-Star games. And after that, they ought to air some of the James Holzhauer episodes instead of one of the Teen Tournaments.
You lose.

I see a note that the Chicago test is August 24, but no one has mentioned being invited. I checked my mailbox today (including the spam folder) and no invite, sadly. Can anyone confirm?

James should be Ivory Soap certain to make it to the semis as there cannot be any scenario for things to go so wrong that he is one one the six out instead of nine moving on. You can't win the tournament in the quarterfinal, but you can certainly lose it. James will play ultra-conservative in the q...
