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

I'm going to take the other side on "Sky's the Limit".

Ratings and website traffic go through the roof with the long streaks, and it helps keep people thinking about the show.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Interesting...unless I'm missing something, this tells me there are two possibilities: 1. Pass a test and your name stays on the list for a minimum of one more cycle to be randomly selected for an audition (I really doubt this one) I remember it being mentioned at my last audition that the audition...

Good news - I have an upcoming audition in L.A. :D
It wasn't today, was it?

(There were definitely auditions today at the Culver City Doubletree.)

Along with caps lock lecturing?
I thought you'd be familiar with the conceit of capitalizing a category name.

(However, I toned down my thoughts.)

Re: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game is a draw for the Weak Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob Not sure of the exact definition, but hiw bet was too big. Surely the intent is to stay above 1st's cover bet if he misses. It just seems so obvious there is no advantage from him not to stay abo...

Re: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And I'll grant that Oscars is a tougher category that it might otherwise seem, given that there are close to 100 years of Oscars with 5 (or more) nominees in each of the big categories. Still, they tend to focus on winners in the past 40 years so it's at least a tad more manageable than some other ...

I don't get how this FJ was a complete miss - and that Doug didn't even hazard a guess (which - ok?).

Then again, movies seem to a weak spot for contestants so the writers are going to keep going back there.
I'm betting the category elicited a reaction of "wtf" from many.

Re: Thursday, September 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Am I a jerk if I rooted against Michael because of the proposal? I just intensely dislike public proposals, especially on TV or on the Jumbotron at a ballgame. In this specific incident it also felt like the act of someone who was overconfident that they would win. Maybe I'm projecting but I wouldn...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I wonder if Arthur Chu turned it down? I would feel bad if they didn't offer it to him. I know he wasn't popular and I certainly wasn't a fan at the time of his run, but since I've watched the documentary about him I've become more sympathetic. :cry: The fact that they have Leonard Cooper and Jenni...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The teams are close enough in skill that I would definitely say that no team has less than a 10% shot of winning and no more than a 25% shot of winning at this point.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

The tournament is a Wednesday-through-Tuesday, so it would not surprise me if it was set up in some sort of four-part 3-episode 3-episode 2-episode 2-episode fashion.

David Madden and Jennifer Giles were the featured players today leaving 5 x 2 next week for a perfect lead-up to the draft.
Apparently David Madden's wins happened two years earlier than they actually did.

I got Guillotin without the E. :geek: I didn’t (I said Robespierre) but I dislike the “executive decision” to accept a response that is 100% wrong. Well, I guarantee that there would have been an uproar if they didn't take all 3 answers as being correct. I'd say that without the executive decision,...

Also, I'm curious: does anybody know why Madden got the opportunity to play this time around after he turned down (or was barred from?) the BotD tournament on legal grounds related to his job? Having no further knowledge of the situation, my guess is that he probably decided to cut ties with whomev...
